Nassau – August 5, 2019 – In partnership with ACREW, The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism (BMOT) hosted 15 superyacht charter brokers representing some of the largest superyacht charter companies across Europe and America to position The Islands Of The Bahamas as a premier yachting destination.
The Ministry welcomed the opportunity to work along with ACREW and the Association of Bahamas Marinas to coordinate a familiarization trip to demonstrate all that The Bahamas and the association’s 30 member marinas have to offer. ACREW provides professional development opportunities, such as networking, workshops and social activities to superyacht captains and crew.
While in The Bahamas, brokers received in-depth knowledge of marinas and their respective islands to help promote the destination to their clients. On July 22, Mr. Mark Humes, Member of Parliament – on behalf of the Minister of Tourism & Aviation, Hon. Dionisio D’Aguilar – officially welcomed the super yacht brokers to Nassau, Paradise Island during a welcome dinner reception at Graycliff. While on island, the brokers stayed at The Cove, Atlantis Resort and learned about The Bahamas’ extensive capability to accommodate superyacht travelers, which included a private tour of Odyssey Aviation Bahamas.
The group visited The Abacos where they conducted a site inspection at the Abaco Beach Resort, discovered world renowned Pete’s Pub, and stayed at The Abaco Club on Winding Bay.
The broker’s final day was spent in Eleuthera where they explored the phenomenal Glass Window Bridge. They were also able to visit and enjoy the beauty of Romora Bay Resort & Marina for a night of delicious Bahamian cuisine, lively music and lots of dancing.
