Palma International Boat Show expands (26 March 2014)

This year’s event features larger exhibition space both on land and in water.
Organisers of the Palma International Boat Show have announced that this year’s show will feature an expanded exhibition space both on land and in water.
Commenting on the news, Guy Norrish from long-term exhibitor Marina Estrella, says: “Following a 2012 hiatus, the comeback 2013 Palma International Boat Show was a real hit. The new format of fewer days, better opening times, more boats on the water and reasonable ticket prices suited both exhibitors and visitors. Marina Estrella closed the show with confirmed sales of over €2m, including the first Azimut 55S to reach the Balearics. So, we are looking forward to a good show in 2014.”
In addition, the Palma Superyacht Show, which now runs alongside the mainstream event, is also expected to increase the number and size of yachts on display from 47 yachts over 24m in 2013 to more than 65 for 2014.
For the first time Pier 2 will be connected to Pier 3 by a swing bridge which will not only allow boats to exit for sea trials but will enable visitors to walk around the Show in a continuous flow.
The Palma International Boat Show 2014 will also benefit from the recent completion of Moll Vell Marina’s €6.5m makeover which releases 25% more on-land exhibition space previously taken over by construction work.
Meanwhile the new pier configuration will increase the number of berths overall from 110 in 2013 to 200 in 2014. This will allow superyachts on display for sale or charter to have a major presence, with vessels up to 70m in length on display.
The Palma International Boat Show 2014 will run from 30 April to 4 May.
