MYBA Charter Show 2017 – Barcelona, Spain 24th to 27th April 2017

We are off to Barcelona, the city that is to host the MYBA Charter Show for the next three consecutive years.

2017 will be the 29th Edition of the Charter Yacht Show which was first held in San Remo Italy before moving to Genoa where it was held every year until last

In its long and colourful history this ‘trade only’ Show has been consistent in attracting a high number of the world’s leading professional charter yacht brokers.

They come to appraise the yachts and meet captains and crew in readiness for the forthcoming season.

We visit the show to report on what is new to charter we meet and interview crew for features in the many magazines we write for and we mingle with brokers and suppliers to get the very latest in superyacht news.

A new city means finding a new hotel and it has been sad to loose our close co operation with Hotel Bristol Palace in Genoa

But now a new opportunity beckons.

We will be staying at Hotel Les Arts just a stroll away from One Ocean Port Vell where the yachts will be moored.

The hotel is a heaven of comfort and tranquility, caught somewhere between sea and sky.

Each of the Hotel Arts Barcelona 483 luxury rooms, suites and Penthouses offers everything you could need for a restful, relaxing stay. Luxurious bedding. Generously sized bathrooms. State-of-the-art entertainment systems.

And all topped off by the greatest show in town: spectacular views of the city and the sea, from all our luxury rooms and suites.

We will be staying in one of the beautiful Club Executive Suites. Like the standard executive suites, these suites are located on the corners of the building, but at the higher Club level the views are even more spectacular. With your own private lounge and guest bathroom, you can indulge in a symphony of space, light and comfort, while experiencing all the special services and amenities available only to Club guests.

As members of the Hotels Club we are in fact living in an hotel within a hotel

The Club is a secluded area high in the upper floors of the building offering a more exclusive, personalised experience. Among a wealth of special amenities, guests enjoy private access to the Club floors and separate reception. Meanwhile the Club Concierge team will do everything they can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

As a guest we also have private use of the Club Lounge – an exclusive living and dining area for relaxing with light refreshments or a leisurely drink. The lounge’s double-height windows give exceptional views over the Mediterranean and the Port Olimpic.
