GYA OPEN DAYS

 

Step into the world of Greek yachting excellence, with the premiere of the Greek Yachting Association's Open Days. Immersive, exciting, and bringing together a network of international and regional brokers, this event will take place from the 18th to the 21st of May in the marinas of the Athens Riviera. Following the success of the Virtual Charter Yacht Show, the Greek Yachting Association is delighted to present a new initiative, welcoming you back into the prestige of international yachting.

Each year, the Greek yachting industry grows stronger, attracting onlookers and admirers the world over. In 2019, the Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) showcased 102 yachts, bringing 450 international brokers from 31 different countries together in the port of Nafplion. 2021 will see a continuation of this legacy, away from screens and back to the docks. For the first time, we’re dropping anchor in Athens, bringing with us a curated collection of motor yachts, sailing yachts and motor sailers.

Browse and walk through our superb selection, connecting with brokers from Greece and overseas, and networking with key figures from the industry. With state of the art design, lavish interiors and world-class engineering, the Greek Yachting Association's fleet is a masterclass in contemporary maritime luxury.

In light of recent events, we’re taking every measure to secure safe and seamless Open Days. Admission is exclusive to charter brokers, and the wearing of masks is mandatory. Entry into yachts will be permitted upon presentation of a self-test made within 24 hours of your visit or on-site prior to boarding the vessels, or with rapid or PCR tests made 48-72 hours prior to arrival. The world is opening and so are we, and the Greek Yachting Association is proud to host another landmark event, continuing to connect the world to the Mediterranean.

The Open Days 2021 are bound to set new standards of yachting, connecting brokers around the world to the exciting future of our industry. We look forward to greeting you safely and soon to the marinas of Athens.

 

 

7th Mediterranean Yacht Show

The Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS), the largest exhibition of professional crewed yachts in the world, which took place from April 30th to May 4th, 2022, returned to the port of Nafplion more dynamically than ever. After 2 years of absence due to the pandemic and following the highly successful events - including the first international Virtual Yacht Charter Shows, in 2020 and 2021, and the 2021 Roadshow Open Marina Days in the marinas of Athens, the MEDYS returned for the 7th year, highlighting once again the superiority of yachting in Greece.

The Show, had 90 registered yachts with a cumulative length of over 3.4 kilometres (with an additional 20 on a waiting list due to lack of space). The Show was also attended by more than 610 yacht brokers and industry professionals from around the world who had the opportunity to see the yachts available for charter up-close, to get to know their crews and to be informed about the possibilities and options they offer.

Yachting tourism attracts an increasing number of visitors to Greece and MEDYS is the perfect occasion to highlight the region as one of the top yachting destinations globally. The show owes its success to the large number of registered yachts, the great turn-out of industry professionals from all corners of the globe and the contribution of the local CAs. It is organized each year by GYA under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Tourism and with the kind support of the Municipality of Nafplion.
