YACHTING NEWS

A Classic Regatta, A New Market and An Early Bird Show

Yachting is a passion, an activity, a way of getting out and enjoying the world. So too the business of yachting. Full service brokerage houses such as YPI do not help clients find yachts to buy or charter by sitting at a desk. Travelling to where the opportunities are in the world is essential. Getting to enjoy the yachts in situations they were made for is paramount.

ST BARTHS BUCKET
24 – 27 March

This month no less than three YPI sailing yachts are taking part in the prestigious, invitation-only St Barth’s Bucket Regatta. Open to sailing yachts over 31-metres (100 ft), this year’s event features YPI yachts: METEOR and WILLIAM TAI (both for sale with YPI Brokerage) and the sublime WINDROSE, for sale and charter with YPI.

“St Barths is a magical venue for one of the world’s best known and much loved Buckets,” explains Head of YPI Sail, William Bishop. “Both WINDROSE and METEOR are former winners at the Bucket and it’s great to see them in again this year. Events like this really show potential owners what these yachts are fully capable of achieving.”

Will Bishop will be present throughout the Regatta together with YPI Group CEO, Bertrand Vogèle and both will be available to organize private VIP visits onboard yachts for parties interested in the purchase or charter of the YPI yachts on show.
