MEDYS 2022

The Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) is preparing to return to the global yachting calendar and the Greek Yachting Association (GYA) is delighted to announce the show dates for 2022.

The 7th MEDYS, the world’s largest exhibition of commercial crewed charter yachts, will be held from April 30 to May 4 2022, once again in the picturesque port of Nafplion in Greece.

The MEDYS is an exclusive B2B event that brings together brokers from all corners of the globe, encouraging them to connect and do business in an environment that is second to none. The 2019 edition saw 102 luxury crewed yachts and 450 international brokers from 31 different countries attending. Following this success, all eyes are on the 7th MEDYS which promises to be yet another impressive expression of the flourishing Greek yachting charter market!

“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 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

“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

“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

“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

“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

“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.”


“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

"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

“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

“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.”


“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 INC

“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.”


“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.”


“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

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.

FIONA MAURESO, Northrop & Johnson France


Following the success of last year’s event, GYA is delighted to invite its partners back into the world of Greek yachting excellence.

MEDYS 2019

The 6th Mediterranean Yacht Show took place from 4 - 8 May 2019 at Nafplion and enjoyed great success, bringing together a superb collection of luxury crewed charter yachts and hundreds of international brokers. Organised by the Greek Yachting Association, the show is the largest of its kind, with 102 of the finest yachts registered this year. Over 450 international brokers from 31 countries had the opportunity to inspect the excellent facilities of each yacht on display over the 5-day period and to experience the elevated level of services offered by the welcoming captains and crews.

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 as well as the Region of the Peloponnese.
