Annapolis Sailboat Show adds charter section

The Annapolis Sailboat Show will feature Vacation Basin, a section dedicated to chartering and exotic vacations and presented by Cruising World magazine.

People who attend the Oct. 10-14 show will be able to browse dozens of charter companies, speak with tourism boards and explore options for adventure travel and exotic destination resorts. They will have opportunities to meet with charter companies from around the world and plan 2014 excursions and will be able to explore fractional ownership and take advantage of discounts offered for reserving at the show.

Poseidon Charters, a Mediterranean charter specialist, will be at the show with crewed yachts, bareboats, flotillas and cabin charter programs in Greece and Croatia. The Moorings and Sunsail, providing powerboat and sailing vacations worldwide, will feature yacht charters for all levels of experience.

Ship to Shore will have crewed yachts for charter in the Caribbean and a representative from the Rolex Sailing Regatta will show how to have a "racing vacation." Navtours, a 17-year-old charter company from Montreal, will offer bareboat charters, crewed charters and luxury all-inclusive charters on a large range of sailboats and catamarans, including the brand-new Jeanneau and Lagoon.

Visitors to Vacation Basin also will find Kiriacoulis Mediterranean, the largest yacht charter company in the Mediterranean; BaySail School, located in the quaint waterfront town of Havre de Grace, Md.; Dream Yacht Charter, offering more than 500 boats for charter at more than 35 locations worldwide; and Annapolis Bay Charters, which has been operating since 1980. Sail Away Catamarans offers the only all-catamaran charter fleet on the Chesapeake and the British Virgin Islands.

New to Vacation Basin this year is MMk Turizam, from Croatia, and Cruise Abaco offering free online booking solutions.
