The 2019 Mediterranean Yacht Show

It’s almost time for your Boatbookings crewed yacht charter brokers to attend the annual Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) in Nafplion, Greece. With 107 yachts on display measuring over 3000m in length, the 2019 MEDYS is going to be the most successful yacht show to date. Today, we will take a look at three of our favourite yachts exhibiting from the 4-8 May 2019.

MELITI | Lagoon 560

MEDYS 2019 will showcase the best motor and sailing yachts available for charter in Greece, as well as some of our favourite Greek crewed catamarans. MELITI is a luxurious Lagoon 560 catamaran, accommodating 10 guests in 5 cabins for sailing charter through the Saronic and Cyclades islands. With Captian Stelios at the helm, you will discover tranquil bays, breathtaking anchorages and unrivalled sunsets. Bring your camera!

PARIS A | Maiora 115

In addition to catamarans, MEDYS 2019 will showcase the best Greece crewed motor yachts. PARIS A continues to be one of our favourites in the 100-120 feet range, offering five spacious suites, a large flybridge and a great selection of water toys. Furthermore, she has a dedicated crew, as well as a superb chef in Dionisios for summer 2019. We look forward to being dazzled with his creations!

BLISS | Heesen 44m

BLISS has just benefitted from an extensive winter refit and is therefore in sparkling condition for the summer 2019 Greek yachting season. Experienced Captain Takis, and his dedicated crew of 8 will show you the best Cyclades Islands Motor Yacht Itinerary with stops in the magical Mykonos and picturesque Paros.
