The Antigua Yacht Show 2011 will be held from the 4th to the 10th of December. The show this year has been extended to cover six days and will again take place at the Nelson”s Dockyard Marina in English Harbour, the Falmouth Harbour Marina and the Antigua Yacht Club Marina both located in Falmouth Harbour.

A sponsored shuttle service runs between the three marinas during show hours. There is also a shuttle service to take participants back to their hotels in the area each evening between 5pm and midnight.

Yacht viewing hours are from 9:30am – 5:30pm daily with one hour for lunch between 12:30pm – 1:30pm. Name badges must be worn at all times during the show and are required for boarding of yachts.

Owing to the request from charter brokers and yacht management companies all registered yachts will remain on the dock throughout the first five days of the newly extended show. The additional day, Saturday, will be a designated “Day Sail”, offering management companies an opportunity to invite visiting brokers to experience a “micro-charter” cruising Antigua”s stunning coastal waters and islands aboard a choice of some of the finest charter yachts in the Caribbean.
