Due to overwhelming demand from companies wishing to exhibit their yachts, the inaugural Palma Superyacht Brokerage and Charter Show has been forced to increase its area. Held from 1 to 5th May within the Palma International Boat Show, over 60 moorings are now available to exhibit yachts from 24m in length for sale and charter.

“We were surprised by the demand from brokers who wanted to exhibit their yachts at the Show. However this really just enforces our conviction that there is definitely a market for this kind of event in Palma”, commented Marc Händle, Vice President of the newly formed Balearic Yacht Brokers Association (BYBA) which is organizing the Show.

An impressive range of yachts will be on view. Confirmed is 44m S/Y Canica built by Baltic Yachts with a Judel/Vrolijk design pedigree. This fast performance sailing yacht, constructed using the best lightweight materials, reaches speeds of over 20 knots and has an interior design by renowned John Munford.

Also confirmed is 36.5m M/Y Gin Tonic which offers accommodation for 12 guests and a roomy exterior. Her spacious al-fresco dining areas also provide plenty of room for guests to enjoy the spectacular surroundings at sea.

To complement the Show there will be a large tent that will house a champagne bar, a chill out area as well as a bar where visitors can relax and enjoy a gin and tonic of a different kind. Each evening will see live music played around sunset to round off the perfect day.
