The Myba Pop-Up Superyacht Show sparks the interest of Nautical Superstars
Friday, August 26, 2016 10:44 AM
The second edition of the MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show is fast approaching and anticipation is growing, as is the list of participants. The owners and captains of some of the most luxurious superyachts in the broader Mediterranean region have confirmed their attendance ensuring that, from the 2nd to the 4th of September, the Porto Montenegro Marina will be the centre of attraction for the global yachting industry.
The list of participating yachts includes the elegant “Lord of the Seas” which was built in 2013 by Egeria Yachts (58m), the luxurious Philip Zepter yacht “JoyMe” (49,91m), the steel Sanlorenzo “Reve D'Or” (46m) and the traditional gulet Daima (42,5m). With more than 90 brokers and agents already registered, the event promises to be an even bigger success than the inaugural show that was held in 2015.
The MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show is the only B2B event of its kind to be staged in the region and is the result of a close partnership with MYBA The Worldwide Yachting Association. During the past few years, the Porto Montenegro Marina has become a leading homeport for superyachts and a luxurious nautical resort in the Mediterranean, with a capacity of over 450 berths, 127 of which are suitable for superyachts: a yachting playground that MYBA considers important to showcase.
Fiona Maureso, President of MYBA, explains “The MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show is a unique combination. It is foremost a sales and charter show but at the same time it provides an excellent opportunity for brokers to discover a destination that they may not yet be familiar with. Being a Pop-Up, it is also less formal and the atmosphere always remains relaxed within the marina village. With a yacht club, restaurants and bars, high end shopping and a five star hotel, there is no end to the attractions to be found. And that is even before one explores the stunning surrounding areas.”
This industry-only event generates business and outstanding networking opportunities through interesting and engaging social events, while the seminar programme aims to provide participants with what they need – concrete and clear information on the chartering opportunities of the region. Seminars will address issues such as the cruising grounds of Montenegro and Croatia, tax and legislation rules of chartering as well as tax free importing in Montenegro.
The MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show is open to all MYBA-qualified yachts that are over 20m, charter agents and brokers. There will be automatic acceptance for MYBA Members, YACHTFOLIO subscribers, and MYBA E-Contract subscribers.
