British water sport manufacturer Superyacht Tenders & Toys (SYTT) has announced the opening of its new superyacht toys rental division in Monaco.
Open for business in the coming months, the new department will specialise in eco-friendly rentals, including FunAir exclusive inflatables, RS sailing dinghies and electric toys such as the Seabob, Lift eFoil and bikes.
SYTT’s rental service will be managed by Roxane Ducruet. Having worked in the yachting industry for a number of years, Roxane has a wealth of experience and a wide network of contacts having lived in Monaco her whole life.
Josh Richardson, SYTT managing director, commented, “With charter guests increasingly coming to SYTT to hire the latest and greatest water sports 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.”
Josh continued, “Roxane is motivated, knowledgeable and well-connected; she is a great fit for SYTT and we are delighted to welcome her to the team.”
SYTT will ensure competitive rates with broker-friendly pricing and credits towards future purchases with the aim of building a repeat-purchase customer base. One-way rentals will also be an option, with SYTT collecting the toys from the charter end destination.
Roxane Ducruet, SYTT sales agent, 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. With our next-day shipping service, we will be able to offer a choice of toys delivered to anywhere in the Mediterranean at short notice.”
The portfolio of products available to hire includes Seabobs, Lift eFoil boards, Radinn Jetboards, RS sailing dinghies, yacht slides and a selection of in-stock inflatables leading superyacht specialists FunAir. Stand-out toys on offer also include Yacht Golf, Yacht Joust and inflatable sailboats.
John Courtney, managing director of yachting at FunAir commented, “We are delighted to be chosen by SYTT as their exclusive inflatables partner for this venture. Our in-stock inflatables regularly assist charter vessels with last minute requests from guests, now they will be able to rent or buy a full toy box from Roxane and the team which is fantastic.”
In addition to water sports 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. For US and Caribbean based yachts, SYTT has a Nautique G25 based in Fort Lauderdale.
