The luxury SeaFair mega-yacht spent this past summer in New England and this incredible yacht will heading back to Florida for the winter holiday season.
SeaFair is the world’s first mobile megayacht venue plus it’s one of the largest private yachts in the United States. The SeaFair is clearly groundbreaking in scale, ingenuity and style, the innovative exhibition facility – which remains dockside during each event – pairs international fine art, jewelry and collectibles with harbor view dining and special events in cities along the eastern seaboard.
The $40M purpose built exhibition SeaFair yacht, was designed by internationally acclaimed yacht designer Luiz de Basto. SeaFair is 228 feet and 2,800 international tons, and one of the largest ships ever built for commercial operation in the Intracoastal Waterway. SeaFair requires a minimal draft of only 6.5 feet, which allows this luxury megayacht to dock at yacht facilities in central city locations instead of using commercial ports.
The SeaFair megayacht will be part of two upcoming fairs during the holiday season, in Tampa and Sarasota, Florida.
SeaFair is owned and operated by Expoships, LLLP. The luxury ship boasts three decks of international galleries, two outdoor bars, an international coffee bar, as well as a glass-walled Collector’s Lounge and an open-air bistro on the Sky Deck.
SeaFair’s 2011 schedule commenced in Sarasota in March with a highly successful Art Sarasota that welcomed a record 18,000 attendees during its five-day stay. After its summer season in New England, the megayacht will end the year with Art Tampa Holiday Fair, December 8th-12th at the Tampa Convention Center Marina and Art Sarasota Holiday Fair December 15th-19th, returning to Marina Jack’s. Convenient valet and self-parking will be available to guests of the fairs.
Both fairs will feature an array of affordable international contemporary art and jewelry generally ranging between $500 -$50,000. The collections on display will include photography, painting, jewelry, furniture, sculpture, objet d’art and fine art glass.
In addition to artwork onboard, the fair will offer an extensive schedule of events including a special holiday ceremony on the Sky Deck opening night and an informative lecture series. The ship will also serve as a spectacular platform for a number of private corporate and holiday parties and events.
