IT"S SHOWTIME: YPI in China, Antibes & Genoa


“This is how we sell yachts,” explains YPI Group CEO Bertrand Vogèle. “We have some very effective digital and print marketing and very good networking events but ultimately the best yachts will sell themselves as soon as potential buyers or charterers have that opportunity to get on board and experience the yacht. It’s our job to make that happen.”


5-8 April

The Hainan Rendez-Vous is the leading luxury lifestyle show in China taking place on the island the locals call the ‘Chinese Riviera’. Last year YPI Asia, the specialist Chinese arm of YPI celebrated its launch at the Show by bringing the biggest yacht ever displayed there – the 65m Azimut-Benetti AMBROSIA.

This year the Chinese team celebrates the opening of no less than three YPI Asia offices around China as well as presenting for the very first time in public, the brand new KINGSHIP launch, the VRI-PACK designed 42m superyacht: STAR.

30 April – 4 May

The MYBA Charter Yacht Show is an industry-only event not open to the public. It is however one of the most influential Shows of the year, giving charter brokers from all over the world an opportunity to inspect some of the very best yachts on the charter market, many of which have never been seen before.

“It is a very important show,” explains Head of YPI Charter, Fiona Maureso. “As brokers this is when we can go on board lots of charter yachts, meet the crew, check out the charter facilities on board and decide whether or not these are yachts that we can recommend to our charter clients during the year.”

This year YPI Charter is presenting five yachts at the Show:
