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.

7th Mediterranean Yacht Show

The Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS), the largest exhibition of professional crewed yachts in the world, which took place from April 30th to May 4th, 2022, returned to the port of Nafplion more dynamically than ever. After 2 years of absence due to the pandemic and following the highly successful events - including the first international Virtual Yacht Charter Shows, in 2020 and 2021, and the 2021 Roadshow Open Marina Days in the marinas of Athens, the MEDYS returned for the 7th year, highlighting once again the superiority of yachting in Greece.

The Show, had 90 registered yachts with a cumulative length of over 3.4 kilometres (with an additional 20 on a waiting list due to lack of space). The Show was also attended by more than 610 yacht brokers and industry professionals from around the world who had the opportunity to see the yachts available for charter up-close, to get to know their crews and to be informed about the possibilities and options they offer.

Yachting tourism attracts an increasing number of visitors to Greece and MEDYS is the perfect occasion to highlight the region as one of the top yachting destinations globally. The show owes its success to the large number of registered yachts, the great turn-out of industry professionals from all corners of the globe and the contribution of the local CAs. It is organized each year by GYA under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Tourism and with the kind support of the Municipality of Nafplion.
