From 30th April to 4th May, the city of Palma de Mallorca was as busy as ever with an influx of visitors arriving to attend the 2015 Palma Superyacht Show.
An impressive selection of superyachts for sale and charter were on display at this years’ annual event at one of the world’s most popular superyacht destinations.
First launched in 2013, the show has continuously grown, with 2015 boasting more than 37,000 visitors, a new record, and 60 superyachts on show. There was much to see and do at the show, with Simon J. Turner, managing director of Northrop & Johnson Palma, noting the availability of sailing yachts as the standout attribute; “It’s unusual in this world; nearly half the yachts on display are sailing yachts.”
Northrop & Johnson had some sailing yachts on display at this year’s show, which takes place in the backyard of their Palma office. In addition, sale and charter brokers from the Palma office were on hand at the show.
The 110-foot P.Smit classic sailing yacht, Silver Spray; the 84-foot high performance sailing yacht by Royal Huisman, Metoulius; the 82-foot Nautor’s Swan sailing yacht, Conquistador; the 98-foot San Lorenzo motor yacht, Las Brisas; the 68-foot motor yacht, Lolita; and the new Navetta, built by Vismara in Italy, were all on display with Northrop & Johnson at the show.
According to Turner, “It was a great show this year.” Not only did the record number of visitors create a lively atmosphere with many serious buyers on the docks, but the show also set the stage for the upcoming summer charter season in the region, which has become more accessible after the 2013 passage of the tax bill that removed the 15-metre limit for exemption matriculation tax.
