The Greek Yachting Association, with the ideal opportunity of the 25th Monaco Yacht Show, held a cocktail reception on Thursday 24th of September. The cocktail reception was held at Yacht Club de 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 second Mediterranean Yacht Show with their presence in May 2015 and officially announced the 3rd Mediterranean Yacht Show to be held in the historic town of Nafplion, 7‐ 10 May 2016.

The 2nd Mediterranean Yacht Show was an outstanding success with over 240 brokers from the most important global charter companies in attendance, 67 yachts on display, 17 exhibitors with a range of ancillary services and a social calendar that created impressions.

The Greek Ministry of Economy Infrastructure, Maritime Affairs & Tourism has already extended its aegis to the show for the third year.



9th Mediterranean Yacht Show

Having emerged as the world’s largest crewed yacht charter show, MEDYS marked this year its 10th anniversary since its founding. Once again, it gathered the crème de la crème of yachts operating under Greek professional license, hundreds of industry professionals from around the world, and dozens of exhibitors with products and services related to yachting.

The 9th edition of the Show was held from April 27th to May 1st, 2024, at the port of Nafplion and once again highlighted the dynamics of Greek yachting, affirming its role as the spearhead of maritime tourism.

This year's Show set a record with 102 yachts with a cumulative LOA of 3.9 kilometers registered for participation within just a few days of registration opening, creating an extensive waiting list, while last minute charters prevented some of them from attending. The Show was visited by 760 industry professionals from 30 countries around the world. It is worth noting that only yachts measuring 24 meters and above in length have the right to participate in the Show, which is exclusively addressed to luxury yachting.

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.
