The 3rd Mediterranean Yacht Show sets a new record!

• 75 crewed luxury yachts
• More than 300 yacht brokers from around the world
• 4 days of networking

The Greek Yachting Association’s annual showcase for crewed luxury charter yachts was held in Nafplio from May 7 to May 10. The medieval seaport was the perfect backdrop for the 3rd Mediterranean Yacht Show, which once again exceeded organizers’ expectations and gathered an impressive number of yachts and luxury charter brokers from all corners of the globe.

The 3rd Mediterranean Yacht Show — one of the most important fixtures on the international yachting calendar— highlighted yachting’s dynamic for luxury travel in the Mediterranean and globally. The event opened on Saturday, May 7th in the presence of the Mayor of Nafplion Mr. Dimitris Kostouros, representatives of the Ministry of Shipping & Island Policy and the Nafplion Harbor Master Mr. Spyros Marinos and was also visited by the General Secretary of the Greek National Tourism Organisation, Mr. Dimitris Tryfonopoulos. Its importance was underscored by the unprecedented attendance of the world’s leading charter yacht brokers and companies—a fact referred to by the Greek Yachting Association’s President, Mr. Michael Skoulikidis, in his welcoming address at Palamidi Fortress.


• 75 crewed luxury yachts.
• More than 300 yacht brokers from a wide range of countries, including Anguilla, Argentina, Australia, British Virgin Islands, Canada, Cyprus, France, Greece, Israel, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom and the United States of America.
• 18 exhibitors stands displaying ancillary services and yachting supplies.

The yacht viewings were complemented by a varied program of events, including a presentation of Ionian and Peloponnese itineraries by Captain Zois Skrimpias and Captain Apostolos Korakas.

Cocktail receptions and themed parties on board individual yachts rounded out the days and offered excellent networking opportunities. These were, of course, in addition to the numerous on-board food-and-wine tastings, but the show, as always, was stolen by the Chefs’ Competition—hardly surprising since fine cuisine is an important factor for a successful charter.

The Show was attended by the premier global yacht charter companies such as Camper & Nicholsons, Edmiston & Company, Fraser Yachts, Yachting Partners International, Burgess, CharterWorld, CSO Yachts, IYC, Northrop & Johnson, Ocean Independence, Premium Yachts, Yachtzoo, Luxury Charter Group etc. Furthermore, the event was attended by representatives of MYBA, The Worldwide Yachting Association.

The press was represented by: BΟΑΤ International Group, Skipper On Deck, Charter Index, Super Yacht Times, Yacht Charter Fleet, Yacht Way.

The 3rd Mediterranean Yacht Show was organized by the Greek Yachting Association with the assistance of the Municipality of Nafplion and under the auspices of the Ministry of Economy, Development & Tourism.

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.
