The yachting industry has well and truly crossed the pond for the remainder of 2018. Already, another edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (or FLIBS, as you may have often heard it referred to), has come to a close.
As everyone knows, the Monaco Yacht Show is a phenomenal event, with some of the world’s most spectacular superyachts on display, as well as hundreds of exhibitors, from shipyards to brokers to crew agencies.
… and that’s a wrap on another Mediterranean season. Just like that, the Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show have been and gone.

September is here! Which means two things. The Mediterranean yachting season is drawing to a close, but the boat show season is about to start. Will you be at the Cannes Yachting Festival (September 11th – 16th) or the Monaco Yacht Show (September 26th – 29th) – either as crew or a visitor?

Sometimes we’re given a gentle reminder that our beloved yacht crew industry is merely part of a wider maritime family, one with members found far afield in branches such as the Merchant Navy and fishing fleets.
