Organised by the Greek Yachting Association (GYA), the industry-only show, held in Nafplion Marina for four days, coincides with the start of the Mediterranean cruising season.
It presents a perfect opportunity for brokers to find out more about the superyachts available for charter in Greece during the upcoming summer months and discover an array of yachting-related services.
Not only are industry professionals in attendance given exclusive tours of the exhibiting yachts, but they can also meet the captains and crews. This provides them with the insider knowledge needed to best match their clients with the most suitable yacht possible.
Ever since the show’s inception, there has been an increase in visitor numbers and, at last year’s edition, a record 109 yachts were signed up to attend. These included a combination of motor yachts, sailing yachts, luxury gulets and catamarans.
Another feature of the show is the highly anticipated chefs’ competition. Superyacht chefs are tasked with impressing a panel of judges with their culinary creations alongside a tablescaping competition for stewards and stewardesses.

Nafplion is famous for Bourtzi, a fortress built on an islet in the middle of the bay, Palamidi, a Venetian fortress crowning the city and Akronafplia another Venetian fortress built on the homonymous peninsula.
The history of the city reflects to its architecture. Elements of its conquerors and benefactors that passed through the place can be found in the buildings, museums churches, mosques, that are located in the area of the Old town.
According to the Greek mythology, the city takes its name from its founder, Nafplion, son of Poseidon and Amymonis.
Nafplion started to be a very important trading center during the Byzantine period and the 11th century. Around 1210-1212 the Crusaders of the Fourth Crusade occupied the city and since then Nafplion has tested a series of occupations, first the Frank occupation, then the Venetian and then the Turks, with a small “break” the one of the Second Venetian rule. The city reached its peak when it became the capital of the Greek state from 1827 to 1834.
