Megayacht News Radio: Geoff Moore, West Nautical
Geoff Moore, the managing director of West Nautical, accomplishes a lot with a small team in terms of superyacht management, sales, and charter. What's particularly notable, though, West Nautical is making a concerted effort to educate buyers, owners, and charterers. In fact, the staff regularly posts original articles on the company website, guiding clients through their options and inspiring them with creative suggestions on what to do while cruising on vacation, rather than posting generic itineraries or a litany of sales they just completed. The reason is simple: Geoff believes education is the single most important thing he, his team, and the yachting industry overall needs to do to do right by customers, especially newcomers to the yachting lifestyle.
In this Megayacht News Radio podcast, Geoff shares his views on a few things, including:
why time is more important to owners than anything elsewhy West Nautical has tools like a fuel calculator on its websiteand why "tell them the truth" is the operative philosophy that the industry needs to approach when it comes to dealing with clients.
Megayacht News Radio: Falcon Tenders, Superyacht Tender Specialists
Mark Pascoe and Dean Stoneman run the British superyacht tender builder Falcon Tenders. While Falcon is a new name in the sector, Mark and Dean are anything but new to the world of highly detailed, high-performing craft. In fact, they're pairing their collective experience to bring something new to the superyacht tender sector: a small, family-style operation that can rival larger companies with its skilled craftspeople capable of delivering fully custom designs.
In this Megayacht News Radio podcast, you'll learn how Falcon Tenders is blazing a new trail. It's doing so through partnerships with top-tier stylists like Tim Heywood, Michael Leach, and Patrick Banfield, as well as some lesser-known but equally gifted designers like David Weiss. It's further doing so by incorporating more sustainable materials like reclaimed teak and more sustainable systems like hybrid propulsion.
Megayacht News Radio: Yomira, Charter Designers for Extraordinary Experiences
Amanda Armstrong and Neil Hornsby are two longtime charter brokers who actually consider themselves more like charter designers. The founders of Yomira, which translates to “your ocean” in Sanskrit, are not your customary charter professionals, and neither is their firm. Armstrong and Hornsby realized the longtime “yacht first” ideology in yacht charter just wasn’t right for the changes naturally occurring among clientele. Therefore, they’re making charter experiences less complex, more transparent, and more interactive.
In this Megayacht News Radio podcast with the duo, you’ll learn:
· how they’re helping clients uncover what they truly want to do even when they can’t or don’t know how to express it
· why now, even in the midst of a pandemic, is the right time for Yomira to emerge
· how the onshore experience is becoming even more important during a superyacht charter, and how Yomira has a “little black book” of connections from French Polynesia to Porto Cervo to make the magic happen
· and more.
Megayacht News Radio: Go Where the Yachts Go
Fort Lauderdale and Bermuda are each renown for their beautiful waters. While Fort Lauderdale additionally holds the title of Yachting Capital of The World, Bermuda has caught on with superyacht owners and guests in more recent year. The two destinations are pairing their nautical strengths for an unprecedented tourism campaign, called Go Where the Yachts Go. Stacy Ritter of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau and Douglas Trueblood of the Bermuda Tourism Authority explain what it's all about, and how you can take advantage of it.
Megayacht News Radio: Tom Mukamal, IGY Marinas
The pandemic saw a marked increase in yacht buying and yacht chartering activities around the world. Similarly, it proved to yachting industry representatives that the way business has been done for years may not be the best path forward. In fact, Tom Mukamal, the CEO of IGY Marinas, is among those who believe re-imaging experiences is important. Mukamal and his team therefore have joined forces with the International Yacht Brokers Association to create the inaugural Caribbean Yacht Show this December. IGY Marinas’ Yacht Haven Grande in St. Thomas will host the event. Although it’s a trade show focused on charter, it will have an impact on the consumer superyacht experience, as he reveals in this Megayacht News Radio podcast episode.
Megayacht News Radio: Bob Denison, Denison Yachting
For nearly 20 years, Bob Denison has been at the helm of Denison Yacht Sales, a.k.a. Denison Yachting. Since then, he has distinguished the firm by embracing video and other web-related best practices in ways others have not.
In some ways, yachting was his destiny, considering his grandparents established the well-known Broward Marine in the late 1940s in Florida. His parents established Denison Marine years later. Bob Denison himself even worked on the shipyard floor in his youth. Experiences outside of yachting, however, had just as much of an influence on him, as you’ll learn in this episode of the Megayacht News Radio podcast.
