Two pioneers in the yachting business in Dominica took time out to attend the 50th Annual Antigua Charter Yacht Show at the end of 2011.
Every year Hubert J. Winston and Andrew o’Brian (Cobra) team up to attend regional yachting shows to highlight all the beautiful aspects of sailing in Dominica.
“Despite all the challenges with air traffic into Dominica, marine traffic will never be hindered or limited,” said Winston of Dominica Yacht Services. “Every year after the shows, an influx of large and expensive yachts rush our shores to experience the Nature Island and this rugged land.”
The Antigua Charter Yacht Show showcased 120 of some of the most expensive mega yachts in the world and is a highlight of the Caribbean yachting industry. Marine business has been growing in the Caribbean with the advent of IGY Marinas and other investments made by Camper & Nicolsons in Grenada, however Dominica’s yachting industry is very small and fragile.
The Dominica Marine Association is asking that all Dominincans play their part in the country’s tourism and its growth.
