I am looking for ideas, and new ways to showcase this yacht. The yacht is in South Africa

. and had it shipped from Jo'burg to Cape Town
. The Yacht was launched without ceremony, in 2010, and I completed her over the next 3 years (full time work) I did originally plan to cruise
her myself.............but stuff happens!
