Sea Fair had a great five day run at Sarasota, Florida. Called Art Sarasota, the 228 feet luxury mega yacht became the centre of attraction the moment it arrived in Sarasota. During its five day run there was a large crowd everyday with visitors forming lines as long as four blocks to get in. SeaFair is the world’s first mobile mega-yacht which has been designed as a venue that can sail around the coastal cities with exhibitions and displays or could even be converted into SeaFair Luxury Shopping Yacht.
After Sarasota, Florida the SeaFair is headed north for the summer. Newport, Rhode Island will be the summer home of SeaFair and the inaugural location of its summer tour. Art Newport will have two runs with ‘Art in the Harbor’ fairs. The schedule dates that have been announced are June 23-27 and June 30-July 4. The fair will play host to a range of international dealers. The products on display will also range from fine art glass, paintings, jewelry, design, sculpture, photography and furniture. These exquisite pieces of artwork will generally be in the affordable category with the prices ranging from $3,000 to $35,000. There might be occasional rare pieces that would be more expensive.
From Newport the mega yacht will move on to Martha’s Vineyard for a two-part edition of Art at the Vineyard (July 14-18 & August 18-22). SeaFair will return to the port in Greenwich for the concluding fair in mid September, titled Art Greenwich. SeaFair is one of the largest private yachts in the US. The innovative exhibition facility provides a unique experience of enjoying fine art, jewelry and collectables with harbor view dining and special events in cities along the eastern coast. There are three decks of international galleries on the mega yacht. There are two outdoor bars, an international coffee bar, as well as a formal glass-walled restaurant and an open-air bistro on the Sky Deck. The atmosphere is not heavy or academic like a museum but SeaFair is a lot of fun.
