More than 100 superyachts make their way to Nafplio ahead of 9th Mediterranean Yacht Show

26 April 2024 • Written by Georgia Boscawen

On 27 April 2024, the chairman of the Greek Yachting Association (GYA), will open the 9th edition of the Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) in Nafplion, Greece. The five-day charter show (from 27 April to 1 May) promises to be another record-breaking year with 102 yachts planning to attend, along with 438 brokers and 33 exhibitors hailing from 27 different countries.

Facilitated by the GYA with the crucial support of the Municipality of Nafplion, the yacht show is poised to place a spotlight on the Greek charter market along with the fleet and cruising potential. To achieve this, the 9th MEDYS is brimming with social gatherings, parties, discussions and competitions that illustrate the breadth of the Greek market.

The 102 attending yachts – with a combined LOA of 3,927 metres – range from 95-metre O’Pari down to 15.9-metre Tamiro, with everything in between, all of which are open to brokers for viewings. Other yachts in attendance include 73.5-metre Lady Vera, 59.3m-Idyllic, 50-metre Ouranos and 41.8-metre Seabiscuit.

The show is an official marker of the Mediterranean season, and after the ceremonial sounding of the horns, the 102 yachts will kick off their charter season in Greek waters.

MEDYS is the official showcase of yachts chartering in Greek waters with a wide range of exhibiting brokers including IYC, Burgess, Edmiston, Fraser Yachts Greece, Camper and Nicholsons and Parsifal Yachting.

The 9th edition of the show also sees the return of the prodigious chef’s competition. The competition offers yacht chefs a platform to demonstrate their culinary competence and unleash their creativity, presenting Greek gastronomy at its finest. This year’s challenge pays tribute to the wider area that has been hosting the show for years, Argolida, and its rich lands with the theme: Cooking the Orange.

Participating chefs are challenged to craft their finest main course dishes, celebrating the orange's versatility. The competition will be judged by chef George Papazacharias of the two Michelin-starred, Delta Restaurant in Athens and Michelin-starred chef Luca Piscazzi, of the Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens.

As official media partners, BOAT will be reporting on the ground on social media channels.
