Dear friends and colleagues,

As President of the Greek Yachting Association, I am delighted to invite you to the 4th Mediterranean Yacht Show, which will be held in Nafplion, Greece from 29th April to 2nd May 2017.

It is very rewarding for all of us at the Greek Yachting Association, who are actively involved in the organisation of the event, to see that international brokers have firmly placed the Mediterranean Yacht Show on their calendar of not-to-be-missed events. A record number of more than 300 yacht brokers, from all corners of the globe, arrived at last year’s show to view 75 crewed luxury yachts, while several industries were present to exhibit their services. The event was also attended by representatives of MYBA, The Worldwide Yachting Association. The show continues to be held under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, with the kind assistance of the Municipality of Nafplion.

This year’s event is expected to be bigger and better than ever, providing the opportunity for visitors to appraise some of the finest yachts on the market. It is also the ideal setting in which to be informed about the latest developments in the yachting industry and to make new contacts. A rich programme has been planned for the five day event, which includes cocktail parties and on-board events, as well as the increasingly popular chef’s competition.

This annual gathering is a fine opportunity to showcase the impressive collection of EU flagged luxury crewed yachts available for charter in Greece and the Mediterranean. It also highlights our country as a leading destination for those who seek an exceptional yachting experience, in a land known for its safe waters, warm hospitality and rich cultural heritage.

Only when one embarks on a journey in Greek waters can they begin to appreciate all that this particular area of the Mediterranean has to offer in terms of its variety of idyllic locations waiting to be discovered, its superb clear waters and its natural beauty. Luxury yacht owners can expect excellent services and facilities and it serves as a hub for those who want to charter one of the best crewed vessels in the world.

It will be our pleasure to see you there.

Michael Skoulikidis

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.
