The new look London Boat Show in January was the perfect place for Sunsail to announce 81 new yachts will be joining its global fleet in 2018. A combination of Jeanneau monohulls and Leopard catamarans, 41 new yachts will be going into the British Virgin Islands and 22 new yachts heading to Croatia.

Sunsail's British Virgin Islands base re-opened on 9 December 2017 and the St Martin base is scheduled to open on 1 February 2018. The local teams in the British Virgin Islands and St. Martin have made great progress in just a short time since Hurricane Irma and Maria passed through these territories. They are working hard along with their partners in the cruising grounds to welcome guests back for the sailing season.

Sunsail has extended the charter season in Antigua with the base remaining open until 31 July 2018 and more fleet will be added throughout 2018 following strong trading, with bookings up 32% year to date. Antigua is known for its gentle trade winds, clear seas, turquoise waters, safe anchorages and 365 beaches which make it a first class sailing destination.

James Foot, UK Marketing Manager at Sunsail UK comments, "We welcomed an impressive number of new and existing customers to the stand at London Boat Show. We had great feedback from visitors, who have expressed a significant level of interest in destinations such as Croatia, the Seychelles, Thailand and the British Virgin Islands, which is making a tremendous comeback since we reopened our base on 9 December 2017. It's fantastic to note that our customers are looking for adventurous new holiday options and are keen to travel further afield. With a new base in Sicily, new Korcula, Meganisi and Palma flotillas, and updates to existing itineraries, we are proud to offer sailing adventures to suit every level of experience.
