2022 Boats Afloat Show Review

The inaugural Boats Afloat Spring Show was a success for Worth Avenue Yachts, with the debut of SUMMERTIME II, a 116’ Hatteras, the first-ever charter yacht displayed in the show. Being offered for charter in the Pacific Northwest, she boasted the title of largest yacht in the show. On Wednesday, during the VIP evening event, the skilled crew of five emulated a charter experience by hosting Calvisius Caviar, hors d’oeuvres, and champagne on board. Charter consultant, Lori Eastes, discussed the endless opportunities of a private yacht vacation while showing guests through the luxurious accommodations.
