The first annual St. Maarten Charter Yacht Exhibition - SCYE2004 - opened this morning with an impressive organization and beautiful presentation. Mostly superyachts lined the docks of several marinas accessible by water taxis. Brokers enjoyed viewing a variety of popular charter yachts, including some that are not often at shows. One of our favorites so far: LADY MADELYN, a 122ft classic Italian yacht with a fabulous crew. Watch for the story in an upcoming issue. Following is the SCYE2004 photo album.
