The Mediterranean Yacht Show returns to Nafplio!

The world's largest crewed yacht charter show will take place from April 27th to May 1st, 2024.

Widely recognized as the largest luxury crewed yacht charter show in the world and one of the most significant annual events in the global yachting industry, the Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) will be returning to Nafplio for the ninth time. The 9th MEDYS, organized by the Greek Yachting Association (GYA) with the invaluable support of the Municipality of Nafplio, is scheduled to take place from Saturday April 27th to Wednesday May 1st. Save the date for the show that plays a pivotal role in the growth and development of yachting in Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean.

In terms of attending yachts, the 2023 MEDYS once again surpassed the numbers achieved by shows of the same nature that cover the Americas and the Western Mediterranean and reinforced its position as the leading show of its kind. The 8th MEDYS featured 92 yachts with an impressive cumulative length of 3.5 km and an equally impressive waiting list (due to limited space in the port of Nafplio) that well exceeded that of previous years. The event attracted more than 750 yachting professionals from 31 countries who had the opportunity to inspect yachts with a Greek charter licence, meet the crew, and discover a wide range of services and products.

The quantity and quality of the participating yachts, in combination with the unique location and the hospitality that Greeks are famous for, have established the MEDYS as the must-attend event on the international yachting calendar. The laid-back atmosphere that prevails, and creates countless networking opportunities for attendees, is also one of the strong points of the show.

The Chefs' Competition will also be returning in 2024 to challenge the creativity, talent, and skills of the yacht chefs. “Zero Waste” was the theme for 2023: it raised the bar and there is already anticipation, seasoned with a little healthy anxiety, for next year. The judging panel will, as always, be stellar and the organisers have lost no time in reaching out to restaurant chefs who are cooking up a storm in the culinary world. It takes talent to recognise talent as they say.

A schedule of social events, including receptions and parties, will add a further dimension to the show with the aim of offering an experience that is both productive and pleasurable.
