Save the date for the world’s largest exhibition of professional crewed charter yachts which will take place from the 22nd to the 25th of April 2021, marking the opening of the Mediterranean season
and placing Greek yachting tourism in the spotlight.

The Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS), one of the most significant events on the international yachting calendar, will be returning for a 7th year to the welcoming port of Nafplion. The MEDYS, which is organised by the Greek Yachting Association with the invaluable cooperation and support of the Municipality of Nafplion, is the world’s largest exhibition of professional crewed charter yachts and plays an important role in the growth and development of yachting tourism in Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Every year, the show draws a discerning audience of charter brokers from all over the world, providing them with the opportunity to inspect the yachts that are available for charter in Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean, as well as meet the crew and learn about the range of experiences to be enjoyed on board.

The steadily increasing number of participating yachts, the best of services, the spectacular location of the show and its unique ambiance, make the MEDYS one of the most anticipated B2B events as far as the international yachting community is concerned. It offers charter companies, sponsors and exhibitors, four days during which they can reach out to an international audience of highly qualified yachting professionals, promote their services and products, and form meaningful connections.

The Chefs’ Competition” will once again be an exciting part of the show, showcasing the culinary talents and creativity of the yacht chefs, while a series of themed events and receptions that facilitate networking will complete the picture.

With the 2019 MEDYS counting 102 registered luxury crewed charter yachts with a cumulative length of 3,5 kilometres, and  the participation of 450 brokers from 31 countries, expectations for the MEDYS 2021 are indeed very high.

We look forward to welcoming you in April of 2021!


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.
