IYC display attracts media at Palm Beach Boat Show

24th March 2016
The IYC brokerage display attracted media attention during the 2016 Palm Beach International Boat Show. The 203’ Viareggio Sealyon appeared on Fox News network and an article on 160’ Bilgin Clarity ran in the Palm Beach Post newspaper.  IYC maintained a high profile at the Palm Beach show with 18 boats representing $228 million of value.  Ranging from 74' - 203' in length, the IYC made strong presence to prospective buyers and the media.
The largest yacht in the IYC display was the 62 meter Viareggio Super Yacht Sealyon. Fox News reporter Phil Keating filmed his report on board Sealyon. The story ran on the Fox News  New York live feed at 10:45am EST.  The video also included exciting water toys. MSN picked up on the story immediately and the video went viral online. KSAZ television in Phoenix, Arizona ran a Sealyon story at midday.  The Palm Beach Post was charmed by the classic style of the 160’ yacht Clarity.  The newspaper published a feature article on this new yacht that captures the romance of a bygone era.
