Palma Superyacht Show organisers have reported a successful show for 2017, featuring an “eclectic mix of visitors, overawed by the huge variety of superyachts on display.”
The 60 superyacht exhibitors included 59m M/Y Maybe, the largest private yacht to have ever been built in Spain, and 46m Pink Gin by Baltic Yachts. According to a press release by organisers, the show featured many returning exhibitors, including Yachting Pages Media Group, along with a number of first-time participants. These included Aventics, a marine technology specialist.
Aventics’ product manager Fernando Carrera Duro commented that he was “pleased with the visitors and new contacts created during these five days at our Aventics’ booth.”
Another exhibitor, Annie Nicholson of the Sovren House Group said, “Palma Superyacht Show was the key spring show in our marketing calendar and proved to be a great avenue to communicate our re-branding from Dovaston to Sovren Crew. The quality of networking and number of crew attending our stand was fantastic.”
Organisers also reported an increase in the number of international brokerage houses exhibiting.
The show launched a new Refit & Repair area for this year, with a Captain’s Corner featuring talks on subjects ranging from Spanish charter licence rules, to the effects of new IMO regulations.
Organisers said of this year’s show, “This year’s 5th event will prove a hard act to follow in 2018, but we’re confident the show’s organisers, loyal exhibitors and collaborators will succeed in raising the bar for our next edition. In fact, we already have some ideas on how to pleasantly surprise next year’s visitors of the Palma Superyacht Show.”
