3.500LOA LUXURY YACHTS
THE CAPITAL YACHT SHOW
Organized by the Greek Yachting Association with the crucial support of the Municipality of Nafplion, The Mediterranean Yacht Show has repeatedly proven to be one of the most influential and essential events on the yearly yachting agenda.
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.

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
This is my 5th time here. I am going to most of the major shows but this is my favourite show. We are enjoying it too much. It’s very productive show for us and also we are having too much fun and we are feeling at home when we are coming to Greece. The quality of the Greek boats is always remarkable. The captains and the CA’s are taking care of them very well so most of the yachts are in almost perfect condition.
OZGUR CENGIZ 4U Yachting
There are a lot more boats here this year and the standards of the yachts are improving every year actually,so it is a great event… I think that anyone who has anything to do with yachting has to come to Greece at least once in their life, if not more.
SUSSIE KIDD Camper & Nicholsons
Every year they improve the standard. They have here a very high level of charting professional industry. So everything is very professional. Crews, boats. The mentality is very high level. They take care of the brokers, they let us know as much as we can in order to sale the charter in good way with good information.
MARIANNA ACCURSO AM Charters SRL
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
The show is getting so much bigger and I have to say after the pandemic I’m so glad to see everybody back in their fully glory. Wide variety of boats, the crews are all stupendous and they are very very accommodating and welcoming, which is nice for someone travelling so far. I really got a great sense of the different types of boats, which is also very helpful. Large to smaller, I think that everything is a wonderful show.
KIMBERLY DAUBNER Worldwide Boat
There is a fantastic line up this year, really good choice of yachts. Everybody has been full of sunshine in the hearts and it’s been a really great show. There’s a lovely atmosphere. The Greeks have a really great sense of welcome, a very warm and happy atmosphere. It’s relaxed and very professional. I have been really impressed.
SEONAID THOMAS Burgess
We have been coming to this show every year and we are always impressed with the changes and improvements that are done every winter to these yachts. Obviously the Mediterranean Yacht Show is a gem in the schedule… Having such a huge fleet of yachts, a hundred yachts in one place, is a very convenient situation for us as charter professionals to be able to inspect them properly and compare one to another.
RADEK GENDEK Luxury Charter Group
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.
It is very important to us to see the yachts each year and to see the difference and the improvements and to make the selection of the yachts we want to offer to our clients. Everything is improving. The condition of the yachts, the upscale of the yachts, the presentation of the crews is getting much more professional and they really do understand what chartering is about.
JENI TIDMARSH Luxury Charter Group
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.
FRANCES EDGEWORTH Fraser Yachts
I think that this year, same as every year, the organisation is so great, so strict and everything is exactly on time as scheduled and the boats are great, the crews are great, so the organisation is perfect in my opinion…This is actually my favourite yacht show. Greece is our favourite charter destination.
LIMOR BAR - TAL Bartal Yachtbit
The organisation of this show is very, very good, everyone is very hospitable. The yachts in this show are in a very good quality. One thing that I’ve noticed here different here than in the other shows, is that the crew were so just more hospitable and more accommodating. Compared with other shows who have been running a whole lot longer there is a lot to be learned for those shows by coming to the Greek show.
AMI IRA Bluewater Yachting USA
Every year the boats get more professional, the crew get more professional with new things, the yachts have refits and that’s really important to us to know the point of difference between each yacht… Now we have over 100 yachts, it’s now the largest yacht show in the world for charter professionals to visit and explore. We are always welcomed with open arms in Greece.
JENI TIDMARSH Luxury Charter Group
The show is really getting bigger and bigger every time, better and better, better organised, more people, more brokers are actually coming from overseas specifically for this show…The Mediterranean Yacht Show is one of the most attended, reputable boat shows for charter.
SOPHIA TUTINO IYC
This is my second time to the show in MEDYS, I’ve been extremely impressed with the show this year. I feel that over the years the quality has gotten much, much better, the show is much larger and I think of course the organisation of the show has gotten much better. Everything about the show is like a holistic experience.
TRISH CRONAN Ocean Getaways
The yacht show is an example of the constant improvement and the passion and the investment that the Greek owners are putting into the yachts and raise the fleet more and more every year. Outstanding yachts have been shown this year, the crews are getting better and better every year and it’s fantastic to see. So it’s a really well-worth show. It’s a unique show, that can’t be replicated anywhere, can’t be compared. It’s so different.
SUSSIE KIDD Camper & Nicholsons International
I was impressed by the quality of the crew, some yachts have incredible crew, that I haven’t seen in other shows. It’s a very well organised show here. I appreciate very much to have a map with where all the yachts are so you can look it yourself very well, it’s a great saving of time to know where all the yachts are located, it is a big advantage that I have never seen to the other show.
PIERRE HUREL Camper Nicholsons International
In comparison to other shows, this one is exceptionally friendly, it’s very warm and renowned for the Greek hospitality, so it is a very welcoming destination for brokers to attend… It (Greece) is an exceptional charter destination.
EMMA MURDOCH Big Blue Yacht Charters Worldwide
This year there’s definitely a bigger range of yachts. The yachts are getting larger every year. There are some newer yachts coming into the show, some brand new. Recently refitted, 60-meter yachts which you haven’t seen before. The show’s grown from around sort of 50 yachts to over 100 spread across both this dock and the other dock. So it’s getting bigger every year. More popular and with more people coming.
TIM JOHNSON TJB Super Yachts
It’s been a really great show this year. We’ve got more yachts than ever before and it’s been fantastic to meet with all the crews, see how boats have changed over the last year. I think the great thing about MEDYS is the Greek culture, the Greek crews and it’s brilliant to see and come to be a part of it.
ABBIE DAVIES IYC
I came to MEDYS eight times already, I think you have an amazing selection of yachts with really good refit and we are always super welcome. So always a pleasure to come.
ARMELLE FIELD Edmiston
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
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.
ALEXANDER VAAL Yachtzoo
It’s the first time for me in Nafplion. I am very happy to come. I missed Barcelona for this reason and really I am very happy to be here, also for only 3 days. I found a lot of boats in excellent condition and a good professional crew with friendly attitude…This is the most friendly show that I have attended.
PAOLA GATTI Forzatre SRL
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.
NICOLAS BENAZETH CharterWorld
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
I was very impressed by the professionalism of the crews. Growing and growing every year, the chefs especially, because they do wonderful things in very small galleys. I see there are more brokers also more international brokers, not only Greeks. It’s much more brokers-friendly, meaning that’s much more free than other shows in the Mediterranean at least.
ANGELA ZURLO Levante Yachts
I am very glad to be here and achieve knowledge of the Greek charter market more than before. I was really impressed by the crews professionalism and good manners, wisely blended with their smile. I was wowed by Greek culture, food, wine and breathtaking panoramas. I will surely come back next year!
ANGELA ZURLO Levante Yachts
I think this year the boats have a much more level quality from last year, I think also that there are bigger yachts. I think it’s a show which every year is getting better and better and is a must stop for all the brokers… All the crew all the CA’s everyone wants to welcome you on board. I think that you don’t feel this way in all the shows and in all the markets so I think is a really good destination a really good show to come.
JUDITH ESTRELLA Charter and Dreams Yacht Services SL
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 very pleasant surprise for me. It is my first time in Nafplion and I am sincerely happy about making the decision to come all this way. I am really quite shocked at the level of quality for all the boats… I think that MEDYS is a developing entity and I think that you are so welcoming and so kind to us brokers and you give us a great place to conduct business.
KIMBERLY DAUBNER Northrop and Johnson
I’ve been really enjoying the show. I love being here. I think Nafplion is a great venue, the dock is ideal and the town is beautiful…The fleet is really good, the level is going up, the service is excellent, the crews are super happy to be here, very motivated, the welcome is amazing, so the standard is up there.
ALINE SERRET Burgess
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!
SARAH BALLS Chair YACHTFOLIO Panel
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.
LEANN PLISKE IYC US
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.
FIONA MAURESO Northrop & Johnson France
I’ve been here three times. I see serious progression in quality. I see improvement. I see the level of service. The level of yachts and especially the level of cooking and service by the crews its outstanding.
