Are you ready for Boat Show Season?

International boat shows have a widespread appeal due to their unique combination of excitement, luxury, and the opportunity to explore the world of boating and maritime lifestyle. These events attract boating enthusiasts, industry professionals, and curious visitors who share a common interest in everything related to watercraft.

They are not only the best places to go for those in the market to buy a yacht, but they are also hyper-social events which also happen to have access to the most sought-after clients in the entire world. As most stakeholders will know, travelling commercially to these events can be arduous at the very best of times, so this year why not consider chartering a private jet with Victor?

Victor is the most transparent jet charter company in the market. The rest of the private aviation industry has lagged far behind the luxury market in terms of transparency – the idea of booking a hotel or chartering a yacht without knowing what the interior looks like would be considered absurd, however, in the private jet charter market, this is a common occurrence. 

At Victor, we prefer to go the extra mile by offering you detailed insights about the operator and the exact aircraft you’ll be flying with, alongside the estimated fuel burn for your trip. We also credibly offer Sustainable Aviation Fuel for every booking, regardless of operator or departure airport. After completing a SAF purchase, Victor customers will also receive a certificate from Neste, confirming the total carbon emission reduction.
