MEDYS 2017 succeeded in setting a new record with 96 registered yachts and more than 300 attendees from around the world enthusiastically attending the event. You are cordially invited to join us in this annual celebration of our shared passion for yachting!

I am blown away with the standards of the yachts and the standards of the crews. This is totally comparable to other international shows. I'm really impressed!


Now on their 3rd year they have grown even bigger and better and the quality is getting better and better and our Americans love coming to Greece; it has an excellent reputation, fantastic crew and wonderful amenities…

KAREN KELLY, All Yachts Worldwide

I think it [the Mediterranean Yacht Show] is more relaxed and when you are relaxed you are more open to see all the yachts and you want to talk to the people; and these people are so nice and you spend a lot more time with them just talking and knowing them a little bit more…

EDUARDO VALFRE, Camper & Nicholsons Int.

The show in Nafplion this year is wonderful. I think it’s improving every year and it certainly have some great yachts to offer for charters in Greece.

SARAH SEBASTIAN, Nicholson Yacht Charters & Services

It is really well organised. The town is wonderful, all of the boats are of a level that I feel they have never been before and I think it’s fantastic. I can't wait for the next one.
This show is special because these boats are primarily just for your beautiful country. They [these yachts] are in the show in Antigua, in Barcelona, we see them in Europe but if you want to know these boats you have to come here.


I think you have done a tremendous job of increasing the broker attendance by promoting the Mediterranean Yacht Show. I also think that the quality of boats have improved through the years and that draws us brokers from all over the world to come here.

CAROL KENT, Carol Kent Yacht Charters

The launches and the service have been top notch, a lot of higher quality and we have beautiful weather this year. The organisation has been flawless from the beginning to the end, from the time I registered, to getting picked up at the airport and making it over to the show and all the help it’s been offered all the way through has been great

SANAA VOHRA, Worldwide Boat

I think the warmth of the Greek people comes through in the events that are organised. I know for sure [...] that there is nothing like the Greek waters. It’s the most beautiful place on earth to cruise, to dive, to swim, so I’m sure that the market is going to come up to what it was.


I think this year’s organisation has been as great as every year. It’s a show that works, that everyone is in the right place the right time; the logistics, the transfers, the parties, everything works very well.
This year the demand is great in Greece. […] We’ve been working with greek yachts for many years and despite all the economic issues, Greek charters and Greece in general has a great image.


I love Greece, but what I really love about the show is that there is great variety; sailing boats, large motor yachts and medium and small motor yachts. So our clients have the chance to enjoy all of these boats and in other boat shows we quite often only have the large motor yachts or just sailing yachts, so this boat show is perfect for me.

BEVERLY PARSONS, Interpac Yachts

It was a beautiful show. It’s my first time in a boat show in Greece and I should say it’s a brilliant organisation from the pickup from the airport, to the parties.

OLGA TOPUZIDI, West Nautical

The good thing about Nafplion is that it’s very compact, it seems very vivid, very crowded, very friendly organisation, very professional crews, everybody seems very up to standards.


It’s been a wonderful show with lots of boats to look at, fantastic weather and very professional line up of yachts. The organisation along the docks, the access to the yachts, the fluidity of the movement around the show has been absolutely excellent.

About the event

The Mediterranean Yacht Show is a targeted trade show for professionals. It is the main yachting event that will display in the best possible way the "crème de la crème" of the licensed and legally operating highly professional yachts and crews in this part of the World.

The top qualified professionals reacted in light speeds altering the course and meeting the new challenge. We are here to safeguard a bigger and better than ever Charter Show.

The site location was carefully studied, the element of repetitive boredom was taken into consideration and frankly for a country as Greece the options were numerous; a fact that you will be discovering year after year with diverse locations all of which fall within your Charterers must visit list.

With the State realizing the essential growth new reality and the Yachting Professionals ready to embrace the new liberal legal status Greece is more than ever ready to make the passage; for power needs control and seasoned sea people on the helm.
