Palma Superyacht Brokerage and Charter Show signs up big names (25 April 2013)

The Palma Superyacht Brokerage and Charter Show is a new initiative which will take place in the heart of Palma’s historical city and run from 1 to 5 May. Organised alongside the 30th Palma Boat Show, show organisers say the show is «carefully timed at the beginning of the Mediterranean season to enable discerning clients to either purchase or charter a yacht before the start of the summer season.»

The timing of the Palma show will mean that the MYBA Charter Show, which runs from 29 April to 3 May in Genoa, will take a hit as potential charter clients decide which destination to visit. With the bigger names in brokerage represented at both shows, visitor numbers will come down to which yachts are exhibited or which destination represents more allure or convenience.

At Palma six major international brokerage companies will be exhibiting yachts, either for sale or for charter during the five days. Around 40 yachts are expected, both sail and power, from 24 metres in length. Among the yachts are, CRN’s Emotion exhibited by Burgess, Abeking & Rasmussen’s Hetairos exhibited by Ocean Independence, and Alloy Yachts’ Imagine exhibited by Fraser Yachts.

The Palma Superyacht Brokerage and Charter Show organisers have emphasised that the show will be an important vehicle set to highlight the importance of the superyacht industry and the significant foreign revenue inflow and local employment it generates on the island. Superyachts have formed a substantial part of the Balearics yachting community for decades and organisers say it’s fitting that they should have a strong presence at this annual nautical festival.
