Kitson Yachts Highlights 2022

20.12.22

2022 saw the international travel industry return to pre-pandemic activity, with the yachting industry experiencing one of its busiest years on record. Although the year started on a positive note, the breakout of conflict in Ukraine at the end of February resulted in the seizure of multiple Russian-owned superyachts across the world. This, however, allowed an increase in demand from many of our US clients, who – encouraged by the strength of the dollar – dominated the sales and charter market this year. 

To celebrate the end of another great year at Kitson Yachts, here are our top highlights:

PALM BEACH INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW

One of the highlights of the south Florida yachting calendar, the show was held on Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach and attracted a wide range of industry stakeholders and yacht clients to view over $1.2 billion worth of vessels on display – from tenders to superyachts. The team at Kitson Yachts welcomed multiple clients to the show, where we visited some of the industry’s most exciting vessels on the market.
