SCYE 2004 - The Best Organized Charter Yacht Show Ever!

First Annual St. Maarten Show Opens As an Impressive Charter Yacht Event

(December 7, 2004) - Captain Ray Weldon of Ocean Cruise at the hospitality tent.

(December 7, 2004) - Captain Boris King of LADY MADELYN with Jamie Matusow, executive editor of International Yacht Vacations & Charters Magazine. Look for an interesting fetaure story on the Captain and LADY MADELYN in YV&C's upcoming issue.

(December 7, 2004) - Larry Ebbs of International Yacht Collection and a member of YV&C's editorial advisory board with Jim Hanchrow of, and Grisha Davida of SuperYacht Conference.

Jim looks a little tired in this picture, since we left him with the rental car and the car alarm at the parking lot the night before and took the shuttle bus back to our hotel.

(December 7, 2004) - Alev Karagulle of Nigel Burgess with Jamie Matusow. The last issue of YV&C featured Alev as well as online coverage of the ANSON BELL reception in Manhattan.

(December 7, 2004) - Audrey De La Salle of ELECTEC at her company booth during the SCYE2004 expo. (Audrey took a beautiful photo of the YV&C team before we left the island -please see the last page of this photo album for her photo credits- and we took her picture and booth in exchange. :-)

Please feel free to approach and ask for your photograph to be taken and included in the next "show photo album" when you see a YV&C photographer. We would love to do so.

(December 7, 2004) - The Captain of BARBARINA with the YV&C team.

(December 7, 2004) - Michael W. Halstead, founder and CEO of YachtStore with Grisha Davida, president of the SuperYacht Conference and the entire YV&C Team (not seen in the photo, as they were sitting at the opposite side of the boat).

When we met Michael during a short shuttle ride across the bay, he was just arriving to the island from the airport. YV&C publisher Fuat Kircaali took out his camera to take this shot, Carmen Gonzalez, senior vice president of advertising sales for International Yacht Vacations & Charters Magazine pulled out his full page YachtStore YV&C display ad "with Lauren Hutton" and presented it to him (you see him holding it), Jamie Matusow, YV&C's executive editor pulled out her calendar to set-up an interview, as Jim Hanchrow of started to pitch his television show. When we arrived at our destination, Robyn Forma, advertising sales director of YV&C whispered, "Did you guys realize that we are having our most productive meetings on the water taxi rides? They are not able to escape anywhere."

This was a very long two-minute shuttle ride for Michael. We don't know how long it took him to recover from us but we spotted him with a glass of wine upon his arrival to show registration. It was a real pleasure Michael, hope you had a safe trip back.
