BR1 Fleet Show 2018
The BR1 Fleet Show dedicated to brokers was held between April 10 to 21 at the Villa Igea Marina in Palermo Sicily. Organized by Maltese company BR1 Ltd. specialised in yacht management with West Coast International UK. The purpose of the event was to present to attending brokers the yachts which Br1handles with West Coast. The event now at its fourth edition was attended by an international set of approximately 20 Myba brokers from USA, France, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Great Britain and Belgium. They were all hosted on board of the superyachts exhibited so as to better appreciate their qualities and crew efficiency.
The yachts made available by the organising parties were SY 80’ “Tess”, SY 70’ “Morgana”, SY 90’ “My Lotti”, “Whale” a Scat 60’, SY 70’ “Red Carpet” and the vintage luxury tender 45’ “10der to”. Apologies were received from MY 84’ “Aria” and SY 120’ “Glorius” due to refitting work still in progress. Thanks to the sponsors’ support in addition to getting to know most of the yachts in the course of the ten day event, guests were invited to visit Mothia island in Marsala and the Botanic gardens in Palermo city. In addition to subsequent business meetings organized by Sangiorgio Shipping and Luise Associates, guests were entertained at the “Charleston” in Mondello built in the corresponding period given by the name to a formal dinner where crew members from several yachts competed in a cocktail making competition which was a draw till the very last one and Morgana’s crew only just managed to win.
