Greece is one of the standout summer destinations, renowned for offering everything from hill top villages to turquoise waters and outstanding gastronomic delights. The islands of Mykonos and Santorini are highly sought after but there is a different side to Greece that is much simpler and quicker to reach. Only a few hours from Athens, the Peloponnesian area known as the Saronic gulf, has everything you could ever want and more!
The Nafplion Show, organised by the newly funded Greek Yachting Association, started yesterday. Set in the picturesque little town of Nafplion, 1,5hrs drive from Athens, the show looks like it will be a huge success, as on its inaugural year it has attracted a record number of participants. Over 8o foreign brokers are in attendance, numbers very rarely seen at a Greek yacht show, along with 50 crewed yachts all of a very high standard according to our Charter Director Lambros.
The organisation is excellent – Lambros says that in his experience, the only show that can match Nafplion in terms of organised activities for brokers is Antigua, famed for lavish dinners and the most enticing activities.
The starting ceremony took place yesterday night in the medieval castle overlooking the port of Poros, we’ll keep you up to date with our favourites in the show. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information on the Nafplion Show or chartering in Greece.
