We are pleased to announce the establishment of the GYA (Greek Yachting Association)

Greek Yachting Association (GYA) is leading the initiative of charting these uncharted waters by safeguarding and guaranteeing the presence of every serious and highly professional commercial yacht in this side of the Med. The founding members of GYA are Greek professional yachting companies which are involved in all fields of Charter, Brokerage, Management, Insurance and Construction of large yachts. GYA and its Members represent over 90% of the Crewed Charter Yachts in Greece under Central Agency Agreement.

The objectives of this Association are to:

  • maintain high standards of professionalism in charter, sales and yacht management
  • closely cooperate with MYBA association as MYBA members and MYBA companies
  • organize an annual charter yacht show for the Greek and foreign flag charter yachts, under Central Agency Agreement.

The Hellenic Professional Yachting reality has been historically slight different than the rest of the World. Greece, a sea nation, portrays a much more prominent role of the "ship"owners themselves who are not just investors but very passionate and very knowledgeable of that part of their sea activity; a fact not negative in its essence. While owners are invisible to the Brokers and your Charterers, rest assured that they are following every need and safeguarding optimum operation and integrity along with their trusted Central Agents.

4th Mediterranean Yacht Show

The 4th Mediterranean Yacht Show came to a close with great success after the four day event, which was organised by the Greek Yachting Association from 29 April to 2 May this year. The historic port of Nafplion was the perfect location to host the show, providing a wonderful setting for the plethora of crewed luxury yachts taking part and offering its warm hospitality to local and international attendees.

While the social agenda was a vivid one with numerous themed parties and yacht hops, it was the yachts that were the real protagonists. A new numerical record was set this year and there were yachts on display that were new to the charter market. Combined with informative seminars and exhibitors presenting a wide range of ancillary services, it came as no surprise that the yachting professionals that had gathered from every corner of the world responded heartily!

Having already secured its position as the most significant yachting event in the East Mediterranean, the 4th Mediterranean Yacht Show reaffirmed the importance of marine tourism in the region, attracting visitors from all over the globe. It attracted more than 300 attendees, brokers and members of the press and provided an excellent platform to demonstrate the important role that Greek CA's can play when working to accomplish common objectives.

The 4th Mediterranean Yacht Show was organized by the Greek Yachting Association under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Tourism with the support of the Municipality of Nafplion and the Region of the Peloponnese.
