In only its second year, the Palma Superyacht Show 2014 promises a fantastic event, fulfilling its potential as the Mediterranean’s most attractive ‘season opener’.
Running from 30th April to 4th May 2014 alongside the 31st Boat Show Palma, exhibitors and visitors alike benefit from the reality that superyachts can be sold and charters booked ready for the coming season at this remarkable event. So far, this year's edition of the Palma Superyacht Show has exceeded all expectations with berths for over half the expected number of 60+ yachts, 24m in length and over taken, and 75% of shore-side exhibitor stand space already allocated.
For international visitors, Mallorca promises a hospitable climate together with mainland Europe’s May 1st public holiday, making the Show an attractive opportunity. As the only public admission event to be organised by the industry itself, it remains unique and benefits from a recently signed partnership agreement with MYBA The Worldwide Yachting Agency, commencing this year.
Returning exhibitor, Paul Allan, Business Development Manager of Palma Refit and member of Refit Alliance, says “The Refit Alliance is an open and transparent group of five or six specialist companies offering complete flexibility and no internal politics! For us, being at the Show provides a great marketing opportunity to discuss refit opportunities and summer cruising support with international owners, captains and senior crew”.
Confirmed highlights for the 2014 show include the 39m sailing yacht GANESHA 1, built by Fitzroy Yachts in 2006, the 48m Heesen motor yacht LET IT BE and the 29m motor yacht POWDERMONKEY, all of which are currently available on the charter market. Contact your yacht charter broker for more information.
Arne Ploch, Yacht Broker at CNI Palma and member of the Superyacht Show organising committee, summarises progress so far, saying, “Most of the yachts attending fall between 28m and 35m, with the 47m Heesen Let it Be the largest booked to attend so far, but that’s likely to change between now and when yacht registrations close on 1st April.”
