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.
