The Greek Yachting Association’s annual showcase for crewed luxury charter yachts was held in Nafplio from May 7 to May 10. The medieval seaport was the perfect backdrop for the 3rd Mediterranean Yacht Show, which once again exceeded organizers’ expectations and gathered an impressive number of yachts and luxury charter brokers from all corners of the globe.

While the social agenda was a vivid one with numerous themed parties and yacht hops, it was the yachts that were the real protagonists. A new numerical record was set this year and there were yachts on display that were new to the charter market. Combined with informative seminars and exhibitors presenting a wide range of ancillary services, it came as no surprise that the yachting professionals that had gathered from every corner of the world responded heartily! It attracted more than 300 attendees, brokers and members of the press and provided an excellent platform to demonstrate the important role that Greek CA's can play when working to accomplish common objectives.

The 3rd Mediterranean Yacht Show was organized by the Greek Yachting Association with the assistance of the Municipality of Nafplion and under the auspices of the Ministry of Economy, Development & Tourism.

5th Mediterranean Yacht Show

A very successful 5th Mediterranean Yacht Show took place this year from 28 April to 1 May in Nafplion, during which attendees from the international yachting world had the opportunity to inspect the largest number of participating yachts to date. The event, which is organised annually by the Greek Yachting Association, is the most important event in Greece for yachting tourism.

This year, 107 luxury crewed yachts available for charter gathered in the historic port and established MEDYS as the No 1 charter show worldwide in terms of the number of participating yachts. During the four-day event, more than 400 professionals arrived to view the superb showcase of yachts and to familiarise themselves with the first-class standard of available boats, as well as meeting the extremely professional captains & crews.

A long line-up of important regional and national dignitaries involved in marine tourism were present at the opening ceremony, which signalled the beginning of four days of yacht parties, themed events and happenings. Nafplion was alive with the sound of yacht talk while locals and visitors to the town had the opportunity to witness a truly impressive array of luxury yachts in one location. The event wrapped up with a celebratory farewell party, during which the winners of the exciting Chefs’ Competition were congratulated for their extraordinary culinary skills.

The great turn-out this year is a very positive sign for yachting tourism in Greece, which continues to go from strength to strength. Attracting an increased level of interest from professionals within the global market each year, the event is the perfect springboard in which to continue to promote the region as a world-class yachting destination, with the invaluable contribution of the local CA’s.
