TYBA Yacht Charter Show 2018 prepares for debut edition

By Rebecca Bradbury   25 April 2018

The TYBA Yacht Charter Show 2018, a brand new yachting event designed to promote the wide selection of yachts available for charter in Turkey, will premiere next week on 3 May in Bodrum’s stunning Yalikavak Marina.

Running for four days, the inaugural TYBA Yacht Charter Show aims to refresh Turkey’s image as a viable, high-quality and appealing superyacht destination.

Not only will the event provide an unparalleled opportunity to view the best charter yachts in the region, it will also serve as a hub for networking with local clients and learning about the plethora of attractions available within Turkey.

An industry-only event, it will bring together yachting professionals from across the globe. Also on hand will be members of the association behind the show, the Turkish Yachting & Brokers Association (TYBA), who represent most of the yachting professionals based in Turkey.

Turkey is home to a variety of charter yachts, including locally-built luxury gulets, and these vessels will be among the 54 going on display next week. Charter professionals will be able to undertake yacht tours and meet with the captains and crews, equipping them with the knowledge needed to best match their clients with a yacht.

The largest in attendance will be the 55m/179ft charter yacht MEIRA. As a brand new launch from Neta Marine, she will also be one of the show’s must-see yachts with a Jacuzzi and swim-up bar, a sauna and massage room, and a hydraulic swim platform among her long list of luxurious features.

Another new build at the exhibit will be the 45m/148ft charter yacht ‘Halcon del Mar’. Show-goers will be keen to check out her spacious decks, primed with a Jacuzzi, an American bar and a large dining area, alongside her traditionally styled interior, which is equipped with the latest amenities.

Among the other charter yachts exhibiting at the event are Ruth Yachting's 40m/131ft luxury yacht ALESSANDRO, the 37m/121ft luxury yacht GULMARIA from Bodrum Shipyard and the 33m/110ft motor yacht MERVE, a Tuzla Shipyard offering.

As well as the yacht viewings, the TYBA Charter Show will also host an opening ceremony, evening yacht hops, seminar sessions and a gala dinner. Plus, a chefs’ competition will challenge superyacht chefs to prepare a three-course meal for a panel of judges.
