With the new year upon us, we are very excited about the boat show calendar for 2022. Although last year’s superyacht shows were still affected by the global pandemic restrictions to different extents, the majority of the shows went ahead and with great success.
We personally really missed the buzz of the boat shows and really enjoyed being able to meet our clients and industry colleagues in person again.
