Yachting is viewed as the ultimate symbol of success and the most luxurious way to see the world’s secluded shores.
Recognized as the West Coast’s premier boutique yacht show, YachtFest ’09 will open the international yacht show season at San Diego’s ShelterIsland for the 10th straight year, from September 17 to 20.
Docked along the scenic San Diego waterfront, YachtFest gives seasoned sailors and aspiring yachters the rare opportunity to glimpse inside some of the world’s most luxurious floating vessels, that range in size from 60 to well over 155 feet, meet with sales and charter brokers, and check out the newest in yachting products and luxury goods associated with the sea cruising lifestyle.
With San Diego recently dubbed the “new super-yacht capital” by CNN, new and improved megayacht facilities, and the wave of affluence in the city – YachtFest organizers anticipate greater interest in builder, charter, fractional and brokerage yachts.
YachtFest will be open Thursday through Saturday, September 17 to 19, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 20, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
