Brokers to organise first Palma Superyacht Brokerage and Charter Show
by Malcolm MacLean
Following on from their successful event 'Mallorca Superyacht Days' held in Port Adriano last year, the same six yacht brokers, all with offices in Palma de Mallorca, are organising the 1st Palma Superyacht Brokerage & Charter Show.
For 2013 the event will take place between the 1st and 5th May.
Northrop and Johnson Spain, Burgess, Camper & Nicholsons International, Dahm International, Fraser Yachts, and Ocean Independence have joined together to form the Balearic Yacht Brokers Association (BYBA) which is behind this initiative.
The Show will form part of the Palma Boat Show, held on the same dates, but will be exclusively for yachts with a minimum length of 24m. The location in the historical centre of Palma makes it within walking distance from some of the most exclusive shops, restaurants and hotels on the island.
BYBA has signed a three year agreement with the Balearic Islands’ Government (organisers of the Palma Boat Show) to hold the superyacht show.
The hope is to consolidate Mallorca, and in particular Palma, as the strategic centre for large yachts in the Mediterranean.
