7th February 2014: Taking place between 30th April and 4th May, the second edition of the Palma Superyacht Show will benefit from further growth and investment, not least through the signing of a joint partnership agreement with MYBA The Worldwide Yachting Association.

No stranger to assisting industry-centric events with 30 years experience; one aspect of MYBA’s financial investment, for example, will help keep down the cost of registration fees for participating yachts and brokers.

Summarising the MYBA’s involvement, 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.”

Perfectly timed at the beginning of the season, this year’s 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, Broker/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.

Palma Superyacht Show is the only public admission Brokerage & Charter Show organised by the industry itself.
