All 3 Berthon offices are now preparing for a busy September with the upcoming Autumn Boat Show season. We are exhibiting in the UK, France and the USA at the same time, in addition to our very own Collection at Mission Control in Lymington. It will be a question of all hands on deck and we look forward to seeing you at one, or more, of these shows. As a teaser we thought you might be interested in a preview of what would be on show where –
In the UK we will be at the Southampton Boat Show from the 12th to 21st September where we will be exhibiting new Windys:
The Draco 27 RS (seen here on trial in a chillier Norway) is making her UK debut at the show with a deep, safe cockpit, optional head compartment and convertible bench seat to sun-pad; she is not to be missed. Trailerable and topped off with a range of powerful Yamaha outboards. Fun, safe, quirky in true Windy style. More information – Draco Boats.
The Windy 29 Coho, also making her UK debut this year, was reviewed by Motor Boats Monthly as “perhaps the best sub-30’ drivers boat in the world” and was nominated for 2014 European Motor Boat of the Year. Her sleek, rakish looks make her a truly impressive example of Sports boat design.

The Windy 39 Camira was reviewed by Motor Boats and Yachting as the “best handling 40’ sports cruiser in production”. The stylish two cabin interior has been meticulously devised by Design Unlimited and her sleek exterior lines have been carefully sculptured by super yacht designers Dubois. This 39’ boasts a choice of cockpit solution, aft tender garage and galley configuration.

In addition, we look forward to seeing you at our dry stand, J068, to talk about yard work, marina berthing and all the other services that Berthon is able to offer you in the UK. We will also be available to chat about the Collection XX yachts available in Lymington, together with brokerage yachts that we have for sale elsewhere in the UK and internationally. email@example.com
In the South of France we will be exhibiting at the Festival de la Plaisance at Cannes – the Cannes Boat Show – which runs from the 9th to 14th September.
From our stand, PAN020 , we will be exhibiting a selection of Windys all of which are new launch models and which cannot fail to impress
Draco 27RS – iconic day boat from Windy – this is her debut in the South of France
Windy 29 Coho – perfect for those balmy South of France days
Windy 39 Camira – taking boat handling to a whole new level
Windy 45 Chinook – a superb addition to the Windy stable

On the East Coast of the USA we will be at the Newport International Boat Show from the 11th to 14th September.
The new Moody 41, a great value cruising yacht with smart blue hull, is available for immediate delivery.
The best of Blighty in the form of the new Rustler 33

The Newport Show also has a large brokerage show attached to the main event and we will be showing:
We have the Swan 82, EXCALIBUR which is brand new on the market, fresh from a nautical makeover of epic proportions by our friends at New England Boatworks and she seriously does look the business. All Swan 82’s are the business, but EXCALIBUR takes the biscuit with new blue hull paint, new (just out of the wrappers) carbon spar and new standing rigging. In addition, all the electronic wizardry including comms is just out of the box, together with new stern thruster, genset, exterior canvas and stacks more…. Very little of the original Nautor build from 2003 remains.
Yacht Details – Swan 82
Alongside EXCALIBUR is the 69’ McCurdy & Rhodes, GRACIE. Aside from the amazing row away appeal, comes snappy black topsides and smart new superstructure paint.
From 1989, she has enjoyed a series of owners who have lavished love as well as the customary truckloads of splosh to keep her gleaming and sailing to the max. In return she has delivered class wins in her last 2 Newport Bermuda races as well as performing for her previous owner. She sails in the racing division with spinnakers. She has a gracious and beautifully crafted interior with great innards for 6 guests and separate crew accommodation forward.

Also putting in a guest appearance in Newport will be the Discovery 67, MORE MAGIC which is available with spanking new topsides paint courtesy of Wayfarers who have also replaced the standing rigging, and her owners have treated her to a new main and staysail – she really is gleaming….

Berthon USA will also be at the Annapolis Boat Show in October (9th to 13th) which is always a great event.
We look forward to seeing you at a Boat Show near you in September and if you would like to have further information about any of these events – please ask Brokers@berthon.co.uk.
