Monaco Yacht Show 2013

H.E. Eldred Bethel, High Commissioner, travelled to Monaco as part of a larger Islands of The Bahamas promotion during the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) 2013 with partners SuperYachts.com; The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism; The Bahamas Maritime Authority; Albany; Stella Maris Village; and Over Yonder Cay.

SuperYachts.com recently shot a 'Destination in Focus' feature in The Bahamas and invited the above partners to join them for their launch at the MYS from 25 to 28 September 2013.  The super yacht market is a $14.1 Billion market and the Islands of The Bahamas were a natural partner for SuperYachts.com due to the proximity of The Bahamas to the US and with seven hundred islands to explore.  The Bahamas boasts sixty-three marinas able to receive super yachts with state of the art facilities including those at Albany and Atlantis.  The Monaco Yacht Show is a high-end quality show guaranteed by the strict selection of the exhibiting companies: five hundred major companies in the luxury yachting and one hundred and five spectacular super and mega yachts afloat are exhibited every year. With a record attendance of thirty three thousand participants in 2012, the MYS is the unique occasion in the year to meet the top managers of yachting companies and discover the latest high technology nautical products and luxury yachting services including premier yachting destinations such as The Bahamas. 

H.E. Eldred Bethel, High Commissioner, spoke to SuperYachts.com about the 40th Anniversary of Independence Celebrations, the importance of tourism to the Islands and The Bahamas' Ship Register. The full interview with H.E. Eldred Bethel, High Commissioner, can be viewed online he
