Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS)

Nafplion, Greece

TBA (Dates to be announced)

By Katie Scott

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 inaugural appearance in 2014. Ever since its inception, the show has taken place in the historic and beautiful town of Nafplion in Greece, chosen for its important cultural roots and picturesque setting.

As an industry-only event, the show brings together a large exhibition of charter yachts with lengths of 24 meters and over, 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, MEDYS offers a comprehensive display of the Mediterranean yacht charters available in the surrounding region.

During the event, around 750 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. 

Anticipating more than 90 luxury yacht charters at each edition from more than 45 exhibitors, the selection is highly prolific, and 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 annually welcoming yachts from more than 30 countries, the demand continues to grow as more and more charter guests discover the premium indulgence of charter yachts.
