Palma Superyacht Show Signs Partnership Agreement with MYBA

Organisers of the second edition of the Palma Superyacht Show have signed a joint partnership agreement with MYBA The Worldwide YachtingAssociation

President, Toby Maclaurin said “The agreement with MYBA is to help secure the future of the Show for the industry, so that it continues to be run competitively by the industry, for the benefit of the whole industry.”      
The show is the only public admission Brokerage & Charter Show organised by the industry itself.
Timed at the beginning of the season and taking place between 30th April and 4th May, the show clashes somewhat with MYBAs own Charter Yacht Show in Genoa whose dates are 28th April to May 2nd and slightly conflicts with the Antibes Yacht Show held from April 23rd to 26th in Port Vauban, Antibes a show not partnered with MYBA.
This year’s Palma show has extended berthing capacity in Palma’s Old Port area, meaning the likelihood is that up to 65 participating yachts of minimum length 24m – an expected increase of 50% upon last year – will be offered for advance sale and/or charter, in readiness for the season ahead.
Shore-side exhibitors whose main business is within the large yacht market, will benefit from networking opportunities with participating brokers and captains, combined with Majorca’s renowned ability to attract an affluent, international yachting clientele at this most pleasant time of the year.   
Anticipating the improvements, Northrop & Johnson, Director, Simon Turner, said “We were pleased with the atmosphere at last year’s show and unlike others, Palma Superyacht is unique by way of an approximate 50:50 motor to sail ratio, likewise, charter has a stronger influence here.” 
Planning to launch new, game changing, communications technologies and services at the show, e3 Managing Director,  Roger Horner, said “After developing e3 around the world over the last 18 years, we are thrilled to be able to support a truly international, in-water, Superyacht Show where it should be here in Palma.” 
To ensure the highest standard of participating yachts and management companies, Palma Superyacht Show is open, principally, to MYBA member & YACHTFOLIO subscribing companies, whose main business is with yachts above 24 metres.
Non-members are equally welcome to apply, although acceptance will be subject to approval by the organisers.
