Following the huge success of last year’s show, the Palma International Boat Show kicks off on Wednesday April 30th at the Port of Palma de Mallorca in the Balearic Islands.
Incorporating the Palma Superyacht Show, the event area has been considerably increased since last year thanks to the inclusion of an additional pier, increasing the number of berths available for 8m to 55m yachts from 200 to 260.
The Superyacht section will comprise around 65 vessels of a minimum length of 24m and will feature a 50/50 ratio of sail to power.
The open and covered exhibition areas have also increased by 25% and event highlights for 2014 include regattas, a Tapas Fair, Superyacht Conference and networking events.
The newly completed Moll Vell (Old Port) redevelopment project, comprising offices, boutiques, restaurants, bar and terrace, will also play host to many more visitors. With over 37,000 visitors last year, including Crown Prince Felipe of the Spanish royal family, organisers are expecting even higher numbers this year.
Held in association with a new partnership with MYBA, exhibitors include the Italian manufacturer Solaris Yachts. Confirmed highlights feature the 43.2m sailing yacht Mystere and the 38.9m Ganesha 1 luxury yacht.
