Book it now: The Superyacht Show 2018
by Emma Bamford
Final preparations are being made for a new yacht show in Barcelona. The Superyacht Show, which is being organised by members of the Large Yacht Brokers Association (LYBRA), will be held at OneOcean Port Vell marina from May 2-5.
Yacht registration is now open, and the event has the capacity to showcase 60 superyachts on the water to potential buyers and charterers. Any yacht owner who would like their yacht to appear in the show should speak to their broker or contact LYBRA via thesuperyachtshow.com.
The Superyacht Show offers the chance to step on board some of the world’s finest yachts in an exclusive and private setting. A selection of hand-picked luxury products and high-end lifestyle brands will complement the on-water display. Tickets are available now for superyacht buyers, charterers, brokers, buyers’ representatives, superyacht professionals and others. They are available in multi-pass (€181.50) or Saturday-only (€60.50) formats.
The event, which is in its first year, has already attracted sponsors from the luxury world, including Airbus Corporate Jets, Airbus Corporate Helicopters, Aston Martin, Boutsen Design, Foglizzo, Bulgari and Mandarin Oriental.
Eight member companies of LYBRA will participate: Burgess, Edmiston & Company, Fraser, IYC, Merle Wood & Associates, Northrop & Johnson, Ocean Independence and Yachtzoo. The organisers plan to expand the line-up in 2019 to incorporate several major shipyards as well.
Patrick Coote, director of The Superyacht Show, said, “Traditional boat shows have a strong business-to-business element whereby industry professionals come together to trade specialist products and services. The Superyacht Show will be a client-centric showcase that delivers the optimum buyer experience by attracting the highest quality superyachts and yachting companies, the most prestigious sponsors, global luxury brands and the most discerning visitors.”
Boat International is proud to be the media partner of The Superyacht Show 2018 and will be providing extensive coverage during the event.
