MYBA18: New charter competition for deck crew

By Dorie Cox

Deck crew, with help from the interior and the rest of the team on M/Y Maraya, took the top honor during the first All Hands on Deck competition at the MYBA Charter Show in April in Barcelona. With a pirate’s introduction, lions on the loose and a pink flamingo water target, they donned costumes to give a 10-minute presentation of a guest itinerary designed to engage charterers from young to older. They met the competition’s guidelines to engage visitors with a show of diverse talents while overcoming technical, time and weather constraints.

Yachts Lazy Z, Atlantic Goose, AWOL, Titania, Joy and Legend also delighted the five judges from the brokerage and charter industry with a first-hand look into a side of yachting seldom seen outside of charter trips.

From fishing on the aft deck to sunbathing on the bow, the entire crew of M/Y Lazy Z showed their options for board games and watersports for every age guest. The Goose Pirate Olympics covered activities ranging from high-speed to quiet indoor competitions and crafts from the crew of M/Y Atlantic Goose. Freediving lessons and salsa dancing were just a few of the talents available from the crew on M/Y AWOL who showed how to work with a variety of charter guests. A dramatic video from the busy crew on M/Y Titania presented an itinerary that included laser tag and unicycle riding for visitors to keep busy. A large band of crew members in pirate costumes acted out highlights for a charter day of skills, competitions and adventures onboard M/Y Joy and finally, a detailed treasure hunt incorporated a diverse educational and fun adventure for guests onboard M/Y Legend.
