Brokers Hard at Work!
The importance of the yacht broker cannot be underestimated in matching their client’s needs and the right charter for a happy vacation. Also, the broker often has unique sales ability. The boat show is a great way to improve marketing.

It’s the captain who makes it all happen. Yes, it is a kind of performance art. Yet the obvious love of life makes all the difference.

KMark at Purveyors’ Sampling Night. Good food makes all the difference on a cruise, and great cuisine makes a holiday memorable! The BVI is fortunate to have gifted provisioning companies. Notice the guests jumping right in!

A French crew got stuck at Riteway’s wine sampling station. Here’s a toast to beautiful . . . err, weather.

And here’s a toast, for a great boat show, to the 1998 committee, chairman Michael Hallett, dockmaster Jerry Bean, and especially, permanent CYS secretary Janet Oliver, whose wonderful personality and dedication is indispensable.
