News: Menorquin April 2010

PALMA BOAT SHOW
From the 24th of April until the 2nd of May all the professionals and amateurs visiting the Palma International Boat Show have an inevitable appointment with Menorquin’s boats. The shipyard’s team will be available to attend visitors during the whole week of the show, which has become one of the most important national Boat Shows. Because of its special link with the Balearic’s nautical culture, Menorquin are inspired by the emblematic Llaüts and the shipyard’s headquarters are located in Menorca, a full support to the Palma Boat Show is given. Menorquin has opted to transfer three models from its cruising yachts range to the Palma Show: the MY 145, MY 120, and MY 100 all true icons of the Slowyachting sailing philosophy. As well as exhibiting these three models, Menorquin will be providing information to those interested in other Yacht models, or details about boats from any of their other three product ranges: Lläuts, Custom Yachts and Largo. The shipyard’s complete range of services will also be on display at the Palma Boat Show: Menorquin Charter; Menorquin Brokerage; Menorquin Share; and Menorquin Services, which this year has broadened the range of services it provides. In addition to the reparation, restoration and maintenance services, it now also offers services for the installation of equipment, supply of spare parts and accessories, moorings, logistics, insurance, and administration.

NEXT DESTINATION CROATIA & MOSCOW
Menorquin commences April with an intense burst of activity in its Boat Show programme. In the International sphere and almost in parallel, the Spanish shipyard will be participating at the 12th Croatia Boat Show, which takes place from the 10th to the 18th of April; and at the 18th Moscow International Boat & Yacht Show, from the 15th to the 18th of the same month. Menorquin will be represented in Split, the Croatian city which hosts the first of these Boat Shows by its distributor for the Adriatic, Brik Nautika. Menorquin will exhibit one of its longest models from its cruising yachts range, Menorquin Yachts 160. An offshore traditional yacht with all the features of larger vessels which the Shipyard combines to perfection with its own particular classic style. Menorquin is conscious that the Croatia boat show has become an important platform for the recreational sailing business and a reference point for enthusiasts who sail mainly in the Adriatic Sea. The characteristics of this central European coastline bear a great resemblance to those of our Mediterranean coast, a factor which is in tune with the classic style of the Menorquin boats and a propensity for peaceful sailing which identify the Shipyard: sailing at your own pace, enjoying sea life to the full, or in one word Slowyachting. Menorquin will also participate at the Moscow International Boat & Yacht Show to attend customers from the Russian market and promote boats through its distributor for this area, Concept Marine. The nautical market in Russia has experienced spectacular growth in the last five years, the number of imported boats increased considerably in 2009 and the number of Russian luxury yacht buyers has also risen, according to the Boat Show’s organizing body. With these market figures Russia stands out amongst the emerging countries where the development of the recreational sailing industry presents magnificent prospects for the future. Therefore Menorquin has included this destination in its programme of International Boat Shows for this season.
