Established to provide the very best in support and amenities for owners, guests and crew, the Association of Yacht Support Services (AYSS) has made a fine art of delivering global yacht services ever since 1991. With Superyacht agents spread across the world, AYSS global network of yacht agents offers an invaluable combined knowledge that will ensure that every Superyacht voyage is one to remember.
2022 has been an exciting year for AYSS and with the show season in full swing, the AYSS council and their expansive network of yacht agents are excited to be heading to the world’s best yachting events to bring together the AYSS members and discuss future opportunities for yacht agencies and services around the globe.
Here is a list of all the 2022 yacht shows AYSS will be attending this year:
Monaco Yacht Show 2022 (28 September – 1 October)
A true highlight of any yacht agent’s calendar, the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) is especially exciting for AYSS, who, along with its 60+ council members, will be hosting its AGM alongside some fabulous guest speakers. At this year’s AGM, AYSS members will have a chance to meet each other and discuss how they can support one another and develop as an organisation.
In 2022, the Monaco Yacht Show will revolve around ‘seducation’. Combining the two elements of education and seduction. The overall aim of this year’s event is to welcome a new generation of yacht owners, with the intention of showcasing the benefits of not only chartering, but owning a yacht as well.
Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (26-30 October)
Another Mecca for Superyacht agents, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show – lovingly referred to as FLIBS – is a veritable treasure trove of the world’s best Superyacht services.
Taking place across seven locations on the spectacular south Floridian coastline, FLIBS is the largest in-water boat show in the world. Famed for its noteworthy economic impact, the five-day show attracts over 100,000 attendees and 1,000 exhibitors every year, making it one of the most worthwhile events in the yachting calendar.
Many yacht crew agencies will argue it is the best event in the business, being as it is a hotspot for networking and building new relationships within the industry. The AYSS are no exception. They will have council representatives ready and waiting to show why they have gained themselves a noteworthy reputation for going the extra mile for their clients.
Antigua Charter Yacht Show (4-9 December)
Every year, the stunning shorelines of Antigua play host to one of the most sought after charter meetings in the world. A definite favourite for captains and crew alike, this spectacular show has a jam packed roster of exhibitors and events, covering everything from yacht viewings to sundowners. This year AYSS will be hosting one of the prestigious informative hours!
