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!


8th Mediterranean Yacht Show

Having emerged as one of the premier events for industry professionals, the 8th Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) turned the international spotlight onto Greece once again, as the host of the world’s largest crewed yacht charter show.

It is worth noting that yachts measuring 24 meters and above in length have the right to participate in the exhibition, making the MEDYS the only sector event of similar scope in Greece that is exclusively addressed to the upper segment of luxury yachting. At this year's Show, 92 yachts with a cumulative LOA of 3.5 kilometers were present, with a waiting list (due to limited space in the port of Nafplion) that surpassed the numbers of every previous year. In order to fully grasp the MEDYS’ size, it is worth considering that the number of participating yachts far exceeded that of comparable shows. Confirming the event's success is, among others, the significantly larger presence of industry professionals from all over the world, with more than 750 participants from 31 countries.

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.
