The 31st edition of this industry-only event will run 30 April to 3 May, gathering around 50 superlative charter vessels in the magnificent surrounds of Spain’s ancient and fascinating harbour city, Barcelona.
OneOcean Port Vell is a world-class superyacht marina, perfectly positioned in the heart of Barcelona. Originally built for the 1992 Olympic Games, the marina recently completed its transformation to a 148-berth luxury facility, creating the ultimate destination for yachts up to 190 metres. Its state-of-the-art facilities, exceptional staff and experience in staging large scale events ensure the MYBA Charter Show is hosted to an exceptional standard.
Every year, coinciding with the start of the Mediterranean charter season, the MYBA Charter Show provides the unparalleled opportunity for charter brokers to meet and mingle with Captains, crews and managers, step onboard the region’s finest charter yachts and inspect their amenities, gain a good understanding of the yachts’ specialties and crew skills.
For Luxury Charter Group, this is imperative for our team to keep current with the latest vessels to enter the charter market and some that have been in charter for longer, but may have had refurbishments or significant refit work, a change of crew, or added equipment onboard that will enhance our clients’ charter experience.
We are then in the best possible position to advise our clients on a suitable selection of luxury charter yachts that best match your concept of the ideal charter vacation – from size and style, ambience and décor, facilities, crew specialties, leisure equipment and of course, destinations and itineraries.
As well as inspecting each and every one of the 50+ charter yachts on show, Luxury Charter Group will meet the Captains and crews and in many cases, join them onboard for lunch or dinner to really savour the gourmet specialties of their onboard Chef!
The Chefs steal the spotlight from the yachts in the highly-anticipated Chefs’ Competition, where leading Chefs are given a challenge and a time limit to concoct dishes that will impress a panel of judges. Their fellow crew members will also compete among themselves to demonstrate their prowess in table display and onboard hospitality skills.
Luxury Charter Group are looking forward to renewing ties with the Captains and crew, and fellow MYBA members. We have nominated the following standouts among the exceptional charter yacht line-up this year.
