This is the show where charter brokers and crew make, renew and really build relationships, while quenching a thirst for information on local cruising grounds and Virgin Islands chartering compliance at a host of daily seminars and presentations. For participating yachts, whether new or seasoned, there are new opportunities not only to network and learn, but to certify and shine all in a world-class venue with exceptionally low berthing rates extended one week either side of the show.

The 2022 edition of the USVI Charter Yacht Show is once again offering charter brokers a “yacht hop”, this year with a bit of a difference to previous! Clearinghouses may choose to host the “dock-dalliance” on any number of their yachts, with an appropriate number of their crews collectively hosting onboard as a team in the same theme. At 6pm as the “Dock Dalliance” evening commences, clearinghouse managers should welcome arriving charter brokers at their dock-tents and escort them to their selected yachts, on which their crews are to host brokers offering them nibbles and their mixology competition cocktails.
Clearinghouses crews should decide collectively on a prior-consented theme, choosing their hosting yachts(s) and organising catering of nibbles to be shared between participating crews. Brokers shall be encouraged to move from clearinghouse to clearinghouse, but the aim is that brokers have fewer yachts to embark, with the winner of the “dock-dalliance” competition being the clearinghouse as a collective, and not the yacht and crew itself.
