Collaborating to Bring COVID-19 Solutions to Yachting



8 September, 2020 Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA: Vikand—the global healthcare solutions provider—is partnering with Amy Halsted and Bob Saxon to bring marketing and direct awareness to the yachting and superyacht industries. Vikand has immediate yacht interior solutions for COVID-19. Halsted is handling creative marketing and communications while Saxon—already on Vikand’s Advisory Board of Directors—will work directly with owners, builders, managers, brokers, and charter companies. 

Vikand CEO, Peter Hult, explains, “PYURE™ technology—which effectively and simultaneously disinfects and suppresses contaminants—is available now to provide peace of mind onboard. Consulting with Bob and Amy gives Vikand a deeper intelligence regarding the global yachting markets, destinations, and industry requirements. This is critical as we introduce tested COVID-19 solution technologies—Vikand is aboard many a cruise ship and commercial vessel—to the marketplace. 

Vikand offers yachts and the yachting industry multi-layered health and hygiene results,” says Saxon of Bob Saxon Consultancy. “Yacht owners, and their guests and crews, now have access to COVID-19 suppression and mitigation as well as Vikand’s Public Health Practice and 24/7 COVID-19 Hotline for access to Vikand’s expert maritime medical staff. Simply, Vikand offers a way for people to get back on the water. 

Amy Halsted’s role is as marketing creative director. She says, “Vikand’s proven maritime experience and verifiable track record are foundational as we bring its unprecedented products for an unprecedented time to market for yachtsmen, and the yachting and superyachting industries. It’s an honor for me to help create the messaging our clients and industries need to restore the yachting way of life.
