Suffolk-based Superyacht Tenders & Toys (SYTT) has announced the opening of its new superyacht toys division in Monaco, specialising in eco-friendly rentals.
Opening in spring 2019, the new department will feature FunAir exclusive inflatables, RS sailing dinghies and electric toys such as the Seabob, Lift eFoil and bikes. The move comes in response to rising consumer demand and offers the company a base outside of the UK in the midst of uncertainty surrounding Brexit.
Natural next step
SYTT managing director, Josh Richardson, commented, “With charter guests increasingly coming to SYTT to hire the latest and greatest watersports toys, investment into a Mediterranean rental outlet is the natural next step for the company.
“We have been supplying other rental operators throughout the Mediterranean for a long time, so it is a logical move to bring it in-house. By managing the rentals ourselves, we can offer clients our usual efficient service and ensure they get the best products at the best price.”
Better for the environment
SYTT sales agent, Roxane Ducruet, who will be managing the Monaco division, added, “All the rental toys on offer are either electric or inflatable, which is not only better for the environment but they are also much more efficient to maintain versus petrol-powered toys.”
In addition to watersports toys, SYTT has a fleet of Nautique boats for rental worldwide. From April, a new Super Air Nautique 210 will be available for central Mediterranean charter, which comes in addition to two G23s in the Greece and Ibiza areas.
