Did You Miss Us at the St. Petersburg Boat Show? We’ll Catch You Up to Speed!


The ACY team had a great time at the 2017 St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show helping some new owners achieve their dream of yacht ownership! The weather was perfect and the turnout was exceptional, even in comparison to past years. Atlantic Cruising Yachts had two yachts on display at the show – the Fountaine Pajot Helia 44 and a Fountaine Pajot MY 37. Both yachts were very well-received, and we had a blast giving show-goers a tour of all the amazing features!

Our Owner Appreciation party on the docks was the perfect way to celebrate the show, with new owners and potential owners all mingling and sharing stories. Seeing the passion that our owner community has built for Fountaine Pajot and the lifestyle their catamarans represent is so fulfilling!








Our charter division, Waypoints®, put on a fabulous display and the team was hard at work booking charters during the show for eager guests excited to explore the array of destinations offered through this program. We have charter partners in locations spanning from Annapolis, MD to the Virgin Islands, and we make the process incredibly easy, backed by our reputation for outstanding knowledge and service.

The response to our Business Yacht Ownership® seminar, an incredibly successful program offered exclusively through Atlantic Cruising Yachts, was overwhelmingly positive! This program allows owners the opportunity to take advantage of tax benefits and charter income to cover 80%-100% of the purchase cost of a new yacht. If you couldn’t attend but would like more information, please contact one of our sales representatives here.

The MY 37 Power Catamaran was a hit with the crowds, showing off her contemporary design perfectly blended with comfort and safety. This type of catamaran is particularly appealing to the crowds that attend the St. Petersburg Power and Sailboat Show; with her spacious accommodations, excellent fuel range, and the convenience of fitting into a standard marina slip, the MY 37 is perfect for cruising the Gulf Coast or the Bahamas.

The Helia 44 was the other star of the show and she did not disappoint. Now the top-selling cruising catamaran in the world, the Helia 44 perfectly balances performance, beauty, and comfort. She is designed for living with beautiful spaces that offer comfort while maintaining areas for socializing and private areas for intimacy.

We were lucky enough to have Elaine Vanderland and her Helia 44 “Boldly Go” in attendance and we had a wonderful time spending time aboard with our current owners!

As always, a huge part of our success comes from our amazing staff and consultants! We look forward to continuing to help people achieve their dream of yacht ownership and we hope to see you at the Miami International Boat Show in February!
