Palma Boat Show 2021: We flew over to Palma de Mallorca to check out one of the first-ever yacht shows since lockdown.
The Palma Superyacht Show took place between 3rd – 6th June in Marina Moll Vell, in the heart of Palma de Mallorca. We can’t think of a better location to welcome in the 2021 Mediterranean yachting season than Spain’s sunny Balearic Islands.
It has been a long time between yacht shows on the continent – the last time a harmony of yacht horns rang out to celebrate the end of a successful show was at Monaco in September 2019!
Mallorca is a destination easily accessed from much of Europe making it an easy area for travel. The organisers and exhibitors are took the utmost care and necessary precautions to ensure this open-air event was both an enjoyable and safe experience for everyone in attendance.
The Palma Boat Show 2021 was organised by the Institute for Business Innovation (IDI), headed by the Vice-Presidency and Regional Ministry of Energy Transition, Productive Sectors and Democratic Memory, as well by the Balearic Yacht Brokers Association (BYBA).
With 270 exhibitors, over 600 yachts on display of which 300 were afloat and more than 80,000 square meters of exhibition ground. this year’s Palma Boat Show was bigger and better than ever.
All the world’s market leaders were represented in Palma, showing off new products and services. The Palms International Boat Show had direct presentations from many shipyards who chose this event as their return to international trading fairs after the pandemic and who were helping to consolidate Palma as the preferred destination for recreational boating and the professional nautical industry.
The opportunity to finally step back on board the finest selection of yachts for sale and charter, combined with Palma’s sunny days and mild nights, was guaranteed to create an electric atmosphere.
