The Berthon Market Report 2021

Leading international yacht brokers, Berthon have recently released their 2021 Market Report. This annual publication gives insightful reviews from all parts of the Berthon Sales Group – brokers, new yacht sales brokers and refit and guardiennage team on how recent world events and politics have shaped the yacht market over the past year, and shares our forecast for the year ahead. Aside from the yacht market, external experts write about VAT, RCD, Flagging and the business end of yachting. In other articles we examine the effects Covid 19 has had on the yacht market, the future of boat shows and what amazing industry developments and events have made it to the 2021 Berthon Cool Board.
