In May 2022 the Greek Charter Show in Nafplion, exclusively for luxury charter professionals, heralded the start of the Mediterranean summer charter season. The Luxury Charter Group team was thrilled to be back on the show circuit, inspecting charter yachts, meeting the Captains and crews, and reconnecting with our industry again.
The main aim of our attendance at this charter show was to update our intelligence so we are best informed for our Clients and to match the right yachts to suit their needs. This means inspecting every yacht, checking for quality refits and updates, meeting the Crews and establishing the points of difference of each and every charter yacht.
The Greek Charter Yacht Show is one of the largest charter shows in the world, and this year' it showcased close to 90 vessels along the waterfront of this picturesque town. All the luxury yachts on show are available for charter this season and range in size from 15m sailing catamarans to the most impressive 95m superyacht O’PARI.
Many of the popular charter yachts have enjoyed thorough refits, and we were impressed with the standard of workmanship, array of watertoys and calibre of crew. We inspected 87 vessels and have graded each one, choosing our preferred operators and their specialties to match our Clients requirements.
The Chefs’ Competition and Tablescaping contest were an added bonus, and really demonstrated the full offering aboard each charter yacht.
Among the impressive luxury charter vessels on display at this year's Greek Charter Show, here is our selection of some of the most exceptional in their class.
