The exposition area both on land and on water will be increased thanks to the recovery of the areas that were affected by building work last year, and the inclusion of a new dock that will allow an expansion of the floating exhibition to 200 vessels.
The Palma International Boat Show is picking up the beat for its 31st edition, which will take place from 30th of April to 4th of May in Moll Vell. The floating exhibition of superyachts, with capacity to host 70 to 75 of these boats - 29 more than last year, is already fully booked.
Still almost two months until the show opens, the first figures for this year´s edition exceed even the most optimistic predictions, thus confirming that the changes made last year were the right ones for strengthening this show, currently considered the most important in Spain.
The show has a larger surface area available this year, by having recovered the area of Moll Vell that was under construction last year, and also thanks to the incorporation of a new dock that will permit to practically double the number of moorings of the floating exhibition, increasing from 110 moorings in 2013 to 200 this year.
The event will count again on the presence of the eye-catching superyachts, thanks to an agreement reached between the Balearic Government and the Balearic Yacht Brokers Association (BYBA) in 2013. The superyacht section will be more prominent this year, occupying about 70% of the total exhibition area and offering an image of high standard. Of all the available berths, between 70 and 75 will be occupied by these superyachts ranging from 25 to 70 meters.
Apart from the yachts for sale or for rental exhibited by the brokers, along the docks various companies linked to the luxury market offer specialized services for the superyacht industry: design, interior design, equipment and accessories, amongst other services.
Along with the superyachts, the show will dedicate a large area for the exhibits of the local, national and international companies related to the nautical tourism, marinas, ports, boatbuilding and maintenance of yachts. There will also be representation of shipyards, dry docks, workshops, local and traditional vessels and services related to them, national chains and companies specialized in nautical equipment and accessories, amongst others.
