At 10am local time, the sun was shining as 2017’s Mediterranean Yacht Show opened its doors, welcoming yacht brokers and other industry professionals, who have travelled to Greece from across the globe to see the event’s record-breaking number of charter yachts on display.
Just over 80 superyachts are lined up in Nafplion harbour, and crew and captains have been busy over the last 24 hours making the final preparations for the show. Now superyacht viewings are in full swing, with the boardwalks alive with attendees.
In addition to the showcase of charter yachts, there is an exhibition zone, where luxury lifestyle brands, marinas and harbours, marine accessories and water toy companies are displaying their services. Open all day, the section is a hive of activity too.
YachtCharterFleet has been walking the red carpet, which fringes the edge of the pretty port, taking in spectacular yachts, such as the 53m/173ft superyacht O’NEIRO from Greek shipyard Golden Yachts and Feadship’s classic 52m/171ft superyacht PEGASUS.
The opening day will conclude tonight at 7pm with an opening ceremony at the port of Nafplion and a welcome reception at the Palamidi Fortress – a spectacular citadel standing on a 216-metre-high outcrop of rock with brilliant views of Nafplio and the Argolic Gulf.
Running for four days in total, the event will draw to a close on Tuesday 2nd May with a farewell party. There will be further social events across the weekend, and YachtCharterFleet looks forward to experiencing more yacht tours, and exclusive on-board dining experiences and spa treatments.
For more information on any yachts at the show, please speak to your preferred charter broker.
