The Greek Yachting Association presents the first Virtual Charter Show worldwide!

In September of 2020, the Mediterranean Yacht Show will be introduced, for the first time ever, in virtual form!

The cancellation of the 2020 Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) was a difficult and unpleasant decision for us and one that left a void on many levels. In the six years during which it has taken place in the port of Nafplion, the MEDYS has become one of the most anticipated B2B events of its kind, the largest charter show worldwide and is recognised for the unique manner in which it brings charter professionals together. So we decided do something about it. 

In September of 2020, the MEDYS will be presented, for the first time ever in virtual form, via a specially designed platform of the organisation’s official website . The Greek Yachting Association (GYA) has decided to support the superyacht sector and yachting in our country, as well as the vital relationships between professionals in the field, by creating the first ever Virtual Charter Show.

The port of Nafplion will “come alive” on-screen with an impressive fleet of motor yachts, sailing yachts and motor sailors in position and ready to receive the virtual visits of interested brokers from all over the world. Through this particularly user-friendly platform, each user will be able to enjoy a virtual tour of the participating yachts, be informed about the full spectrum of services and options that they offer, and come into direct contact with Central Agents for all charter-related information.

The MEDYS, which is one the most significant events on the international yachting calendar, is organised by the GYA with the participation of a plethora of yachting agencies and showcases some of the finest yachts available for charter in Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean. It has been an important business tool and a source of valuable information for charter brokers and it would have been a shame for it to be missing from your 2020 agenda in some form.

The 7th Mediterranean Yacht Show will take place from the 22nd to the 25th of April 2021 in the port of Nafplion, organised by the Greek Yachting Association and with the invaluable cooperation and support of the Municipality of Nafplion.

Until we meet again in April of 2021, we hope you enjoy the Virtual Charter Show!

9th Mediterranean Yacht Show

Having emerged as the world’s largest crewed yacht charter show, MEDYS marked this year its 10th anniversary since its founding. Once again, it gathered the crème de la crème of yachts operating under Greek professional license, hundreds of industry professionals from around the world, and dozens of exhibitors with products and services related to yachting.

The 9th edition of the Show was held from April 27th to May 1st, 2024, at the port of Nafplion and once again highlighted the dynamics of Greek yachting, affirming its role as the spearhead of maritime tourism.

This year's Show set a record with 102 yachts with a cumulative LOA of 3.9 kilometers registered for participation within just a few days of registration opening, creating an extensive waiting list, while last minute charters prevented some of them from attending. The Show was visited by 760 industry professionals from 30 countries around the world. It is worth noting that only yachts measuring 24 meters and above in length have the right to participate in the Show, which is exclusively addressed to luxury yachting.

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.
