From the 22nd to the 30th of September, the SmartYacht team was busy exhibiting at Germany’s favourite international water sports exhibition – Interboot Friedrichshafen 2018. We were there to meet as many new potential clients as possible as well as to present our latest boat auctions, available exclusively to SmartYacht Club members. It was great to meet so many of you at the show, and whether we chatted about shared boat ownership, spontaneous yacht use or bringing your own yacht to work with us, we hope you found it useful.
What did SmartYacht showcase at Interboot Friedrichshafen 2018?
Interboot is famed for its innovative displays, forever showcasing cutting-edge new concepts, so what better place for SmartYacht to exhibit? This year, alongside our friendly team explaining fractional yacht ownership to new faces, we delivered our special Interboot yacht auctions – exclusively available during Interboot Friedrichshafen 2018.
At prices from €4,990 for a one week yachting holiday, bidding heated up pretty quickly! Our SmartYacht Club Members could choose to the bask in luxury on the Bavaria 420 Virtess in Croatia, party on the Princess 50 in Mallorca or soak up the sun on the Sessa C48 in Alicante. This ensured an extremely busy stand as people rushed to place their bids, or for those who preferred to do it digitally the auctions were also available via our online bidding platform.
Our auctions are now ongoing, open to anyone who joins our SmartYacht Club for the yearly fee of €490. Membership allows you to spontaneously bid on available yachts for up to 70% less than the usual charter prices – after all, summer may officially over be, but that doesn’t have to mean the end of your holidays.
What else was on offer at Interboot?
Not only does Interboot’s location in the Lake Constance region make for an extremely beautiful setting; the lake also acts as an active test ground for the thousands of tenders and toys on display, providing the perfect opportunity for guests to try out those water toys that they have had their eye on. Alongside this, we saw an array of around 500 exciting water sports events and competitions take place.
The mixture of athletes, yacht owners, techies and everyone else at Interboot Friedrichshafen 2018 was what gave the show its incredible atmosphere. From motorised inflatables and recreational craft right up to ocean-going luxury yachts, Interboot truly had something for everyone. And for those seeking flexible yachting solutions and cruising adventures for less, SmartYacht was there to advise. We look forward to seeing you there next year.
