Following on from the successful first edition of the Palma Superyacht Brokerage & Charter Show, show organisers have announced the 2014 dates as 30 April to 4 May. The Balearic Yacht Brokers Association (BYBA) has extended its allocated area within the main boat show for 2014. The title, now shortened to “Palma Superyacht Show”, will still be for motor and sailing yachts over 24 m available for sale and charter and will be held within Boat Show Palma.
“We had 43 yachts exhibiting this year and with the extended area we will increase the number of berths available to around 65, all above 24 metres”, explained Arne Ploch from CNI Palma.
Show organisers say participating brokers in 2013, which included Burgess, Camper & Nicholsons International, Ocean Independence, Dahm International, Fraser Yachts and Northrop & Johnson, were all delighted with the results of the Show.
“The timing of the show around the 1st of May holiday and its location right in the heart of Palma, makes it a very attractive show for international visitors to attend. Together with the recently approved exemption of the Spanish matriculation tax for charter yachts over 15 metres this will further confirm its success”, added Marc Händle from Ocean Independence.
Palma Superyacht Show is open to all companies whose main business is with yachts above 24 metres and is the only Brokerage & Charter Show organised by the industry itself.
