Step into the world of Greek yachting excellence, with the premiere of the Greek Yachting Association's Open Days. Immersive, exciting, and bringing together a network of international and regional brokers, this event will take place from the 18th to the 21st of May in the marinas of the Athens Riviera. Following the success of the Virtual Charter Yacht Show, the Greek Yachting Association is delighted to present a new initiative, welcoming you back into the prestige of international yachting.

Each year, the Greek yachting industry grows stronger, attracting onlookers and admirers the world over. In 2019, the Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) showcased 102 yachts, bringing 450 international brokers from 31 different countries together in the port of Nafplion. 2021 will see a continuation of this legacy, away from screens and back to the docks. For the first time, we’re dropping anchor in Athens, bringing with us a curated collection of motor yachts, sailing yachts and motor sailers.

Browse and walk through our superb selection, connecting with brokers from Greece and overseas, and networking with key figures from the industry. With state of the art design, lavish interiors and world-class engineering, the Greek Yachting Association's fleet is a masterclass in contemporary maritime luxury.

In light of recent events, we’re taking every measure to secure safe and seamless Open Days. Admission is exclusive to charter brokers, and the wearing of masks is mandatory. Entry into yachts will be permitted upon presentation of a self-test made within 24 hours of your visit or on-site prior to boarding the vessels, or with rapid or PCR tests made 48-72 hours prior to arrival. The world is opening and so are we, and the Greek Yachting Association is proud to host another landmark event, continuing to connect the world to the Mediterranean.

The Open Days 2021 are bound to set new standards of yachting, connecting brokers around the world to the exciting future of our industry. We look forward to greeting you safely and soon to the marinas of Athens.



8th Mediterranean Yacht Show

Having emerged as one of the premier events for industry professionals, the 8th Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) turned the international spotlight onto Greece once again, as the host of the world’s largest crewed yacht charter show.

It is worth noting that yachts measuring 24 meters and above in length have the right to participate in the exhibition, making the MEDYS the only sector event of similar scope in Greece that is exclusively addressed to the upper segment of luxury yachting. At this year's Show, 92 yachts with a cumulative LOA of 3.5 kilometers were present, with a waiting list (due to limited space in the port of Nafplion) that surpassed the numbers of every previous year. In order to fully grasp the MEDYS’ size, it is worth considering that the number of participating yachts far exceeded that of comparable shows. Confirming the event's success is, among others, the significantly larger presence of industry professionals from all over the world, with more than 750 participants from 31 countries.

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.
