16 February 2023 • Written by Sophia Wilson

BOAT International Media is delighted to announce that the Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) has returned as an annual partner for the Owners’ Club in 2023.

This marks the second year the BTA has collaborated with the Owners’ Club, which has more than 320 members representing 20 different nationalities. Brought together through their shared passion for yachting, members are invited to a calendar of Owners’ Club events worldwide, including parties at the Monaco and Fort Lauderdale boat shows.

After a change to Bermuda’s charter regulations in 2019, which made it possible for yachts more than 24 metres to receive charter and cruising permits, the island has been keen to attract superyachts back to its shores. Last year, BOAT and the BTA invited a group of ten leading charter brokers and managers to a three-day event in Bermuda, including a roundtable discussion as well as a familiarisation trip around the island.

"Our strategic partnership with BOAT has allowed us to organically spark interest in what Bermuda has to offer the superyacht community,” said the BTA’s Jill Dill. “The Owners’ Club calendar provides us with the ultimate platform to share with others why Bermuda is the place to be for superyachts.”

With more than 800 nautical miles of ocean separating Bermuda from the Caribbean, the BTA is keen to educate the superyacht community that despite its petite size the island is a superb cruising destination in its own right. With activities on offer ranging from spectacular reef dives and whale watching to indulging in freshly caught lobster on one of the island’s famous pink-sand beaches, there is plenty to keep all generations entertained.

“BOAT is delighted to welcome back BTA as partners for this year’s Owners’ Club,” added Stewart Campbell, editor-in-chief of BOAT. “It has been a pleasure getting to know Jill Dill, and the entire BTA team, over the past year and we look forward to being able to continue to spread the word on Bermuda’s huge potential as a superyacht destination.”
