6th Mediterranean Yacht Show

The 6th Mediterranean Yacht Show took place from 4 - 8 May 2019 at Nafplion and enjoyed great success, bringing together a superb collection of luxury crewed charter yachts and hundreds of international brokers. Organised by the Greek Yachting Association, the show is the largest of its kind, with 102 of the finest yachts registered this year. Over 450 international brokers from 31 countries had the opportunity to inspect the excellent facilities of each yacht on display over the 5-day period and to experience the elevated level of services offered by the welcoming captains and crews.

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 as well as the Region of the Peloponnese.
