Despite being a relatively new addition to the yachting calendar, the Mediterranean Yacht Show has emerged as one of the most notable charter exhibitions in the world.
Founded by the Greek Yachting Association (GYA), the Mediterranean Yacht Show made its debut in 2014. Ever since its inception, the show has taken place in the historic and beautiful town of Nafplio in Greece, chosen for its important cultural roots and picturesque setting.
As an industry-only event, taking place annually for four days at the end of April, the event brings together a large exhibition of charter yachts, ranging from motor and sailing yachts to luxury gulets and catamarans.
With more than 90% of crewed Greek yachts represented by members of the GYA, the show offers a comprehensive display of the luxury charter yachts available in Greece and the surrounding Mediterranean waters. It's also timed to coincide with the start of the region's charter season.
Charter brokers and other industry professionals are given the opportunity to meet the crews, view new models and explore any refits that may have been completed over the past 12 months. There is also an exciting social scene involving themed parties and evening yacht hops.
The Mediterranean Yacht Show represents the steady recovery of the Greek tourism industry, providing a window into yacht chartering in Greece and what the country's charter fleet has to offer.
In its short history, the event has proved to be one of the most notable exhibitions for crewed yachts globally, attracting an ever-growing charter fleet. Now more than 100 superyachts and 300 visitors attend each year.
