Having made its debut in 2013, the Palma Superyacht Show, in partnership with MYBA, is now a firm fixture on the yachting calendar. Running concurrently with the 32nd Boat Show Palma, this Mediterranean season opener takes place from 30 April to 4 May 2015.
Jane Thompson, Coordinator of the Palma Superyacht Show, says, “Avoiding comparisons with Cannes or Monaco, the Palma Superyacht Show has established its own clear identity as a brokerage and charter show of excellence, perfectly timed before the summer season. Designed to coincide with 1 May, a public holiday in most European countries, as well as the UK’s Monday ‘May Day’, we hope visitors will take a long weekend break in hospitable Palma, enjoy the sunshine and see a great selection of top quality yachts.”
The outlook is certainly good for the Show. Providing a platform for charter and brokerage boats above 24 metres, both sail and motor, the 2015 Palma Superyacht Show is once more growing in size to cater to demand. In 2014 a total of 34 service and equipment related companies occupied shoreside exhibition stands. For the third edition this will rise to 50. There are also plans to up the number of superyacht berths.
The Future of Refit and Repair is part of a 3 day program of international networking and development events taking place at the Palma Superyacht Show. It is being jointly staged by Quaynote Communications, the conference specialist and producer of industry conferences such as The Future of Superyachts and Opportunities in Superyachts, in partnership with YachtMedia, former publishers of The Islander yachting magazine for the Western Mediterranean.
The full programme line up is as follows:
The Future of Refit and Repair – Thursday, 30 April, 2015
The Future for Captains and Crew – Friday, 1 May, 2015
Golf & Networking Day – Saturday, 2 May, 2015
Jenny Maul from Astilleros de Mallorca, said, “The previous Palma Superyacht Show was a great success for Astilleros de Mallorca and we had a large stand. The relaxed and positive atmosphere at provided a great platform for communicating and sharing information with many other companies, while our long-term customers were impressed by the Show’s fresh image and the presence of the best yachts available in the market for sale or charter. The Show has obvious potential to flourish and establish itself in the coming years as one of the top events in the superyacht industry. We’re looking forward to the next edition.”
