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.



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.
