Spring Yacht Shows in the Mediterranean
Spain is where it’s at for Mediterranean yacht shows in spring 2019, with the Palma
Superyacht Show kicking off the action between 27th April and 1st May. This international yacht show has enjoyed a meteoric rise in popularity each year since its launch in 2013, becoming famous for its relaxed and social atmosphere in one of the world’s largest yachting capitals. Featuring around 80 superyachts for sale and charter, Palma has a particularly fine reputation for the high number of sailing yachts on display, with a rare 50/50 breakdown between sailing and charter vessels. There are also 50 international exhibitors from across the marine and luxury exhibits, as well as a dedicated Refit and Repair zone.
Next in the spring schedule is the MYBA Charter Show at OneOcean Port Vell in Barcelona
, which is an industry-only event running from 30th April to 3rd May 2019. While not open to yachting clients or the public, the MYBA Show is an extremely important event on the international yachting calendar, as it allows yacht brokers to tour the charter yachts in the international fleet and get to know their amenities and crews in detail. Chef competitions, lunches and yacht tours allow brokers to view the assembled superyacht and crews at their very best, so that brokers are armed with the right information to match their VIP charter clients with the right yacht for their next vacation.
