The Greek Yachting Association, with the ideal opportunity of the 24th Monaco Yacht Show, held a cocktail party on Friday 26th of September.

The party was held at ZEST Monaco in the company of leading personalities of the yachting industry.

On this occasion, the Association extended its gratitude to all those who supported the inaugural Mediterranean Yacht Show with their presence in May 2014 and officially announced the 2nd Mediterranean Yacht Show to be held in the historic town of Nafplio, 2‐ 6 May 2015.

The 1st Mediterranean Yacht Show was an outstanding success with over 200 brokers from the most important global charter companies in attendance, 57 yachts on display, exhibitors with a range of ancillary services and a social calendar that created impressions.The Greek Ministry of Shipping and the Aegean has already extended its aegis to the show for the second year.


8th Mediterranean Yacht Show

Having emerged as one of the premier events for industry professionals, the 8th Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) turned the international spotlight onto Greece once again, as the host of the world’s largest crewed yacht charter show.

It is worth noting that yachts measuring 24 meters and above in length have the right to participate in the exhibition, making the MEDYS the only sector event of similar scope in Greece that is exclusively addressed to the upper segment of luxury yachting. At this year's Show, 92 yachts with a cumulative LOA of 3.5 kilometers were present, with a waiting list (due to limited space in the port of Nafplion) that surpassed the numbers of every previous year. In order to fully grasp the MEDYS’ size, it is worth considering that the number of participating yachts far exceeded that of comparable shows. Confirming the event's success is, among others, the significantly larger presence of industry professionals from all over the world, with more than 750 participants from 31 countries.

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.
