Sydney’s Premier Yacht Share heads to Cannes

Sydney’s Premier Yacht Share heads to Cannes

The in-water boat show in Cannes is considered among the biggest, and the best, in the world. Held annually in this idyllic location, this boat show brings together over 500 individual yachts, hundreds of different manufacturers, and upwards of 50 000 guests. If you’re a yachting enthusiast, this is a show you must visit at least once.

At Luxury Boat Syndicates, we enjoy staying on the forefront of our industry. New builds are making use of new technology and design innovations each year, and staying abreast of the potential to add to our fleet is key to staying at the top of Sydney’s yacht share scene. So this year, we found ourselves in Cannes, walking the docks amid some of the most exciting builds 2016 had to offer.

We were spoilt for choice. With the choicest builds of so many vaunted names at our fingertips, our heads were on a swivel as we cruised the docks. Some standouts came from the more predictable builders, to be fair. The Chris Craft Commander 42 was a natural place to start, given our affiliation with the brand. And it did not let us down. The sweep, appointments, and downright good looks of this yacht were only complimented by its driveability.

We were subsequently drawn to our perennial favourites, the Italian experts at Absolute Yachts. These consummate professionals, among the favourites at this boat show, needed no introduction, drawing a huge crowd to their sleek crafts.

Finally, we moved on to the veritable weapons on display at the Frauscher dock. This Austrian build, which has been a part of the yachting scene since the 1920s, has been bringing the stylistic elements of Porsche and Ferrari to the bluewater landscape. The results are both visually stunning, and on the water, downright hair-rising. Should these yachts find their way to Sydney Harbour, they would create quite the scene.

An outstanding trip, in sum, and it was with difficulty that we dragged ourselves away.

Recently signed with LBS with little boat experience, Ian has patiently provided the tuition required to operate, navigate and handle a big boat. ( all part of the LBS service )

Had our maiden voyage over Easter and the whole experience was just fantastic.

If your looking to get into a boat without much experience or without the headaches of full ownership these people are for you.

Joe Bennett

Ian and his amazing team have literally changed our lives.

Stephan Kljajic

Chris Newport

Ian and the team provide a fantastic service. From the moment we met Ian we knew this option was right for us. We are in love with our boat and look forward to many more days on the harbour.

Daniel Ashley

Why pay for a luxury boat everyday if you don't use it every day?

From a financial perspective, using Luxury Boat Syndicates is a no brainer, compared to owning your own boat. Your can get access to a much bigger boat than you can afford to buy and for a fraction of the cost

Chris Gray

Ian and the LBS team have excelled in every respect, making our boating experience absolutely top drawer. The management and commercial model works very well, service is always with a smile, and we are a couple of very happy campers. Try it, you'll like it!
