The Superyacht Show, the Mediterranean’s first and only customer-centric superyachting show organized by LYBRA (Large Yacht Brokers ́ Association), will return to OneOcean Port Vell in Barcelona for the next three years following the success of this year’s event. The 2019 show will take place the second week of May 2019.
Created by LYBRA, a trade association now comprising nine of the world’s leading superyacht brokerage companies (Burgess, Edmiston, Fraser, IYC, Merlewood & Associates, Northrop & Johnson, Ocean Independence, Yachtzoo and Y.CO), the four-day show offers esteemed companies the opportunity to showcase their incredible fleet of superyachts.
Raphael Sauleau, President of LYBRA, comments: “The first edition of The Superyacht Show exceeded all our expectations. The success of 2018 has led buyers to recognise the attractive opportunity The Superyacht Show offers and we’re very happy to announce we’ll be working again with OneOcean Port Vell, a marina which offers some of the best facilities and services in the region to cater for this kind of event.”
The Superyacht Show, which in 2018 welcomed 22 superyachts for the duration of the show, expects to see a 30% growth in the number of participating superyachts next year. The 2019 show will further expand its offering, with an increase in the number of notable brands and sponsors (which for 2018 included Aston Martin, Bulgari, Airbus, Mandarin Oriental Barcelona and Foglizzo) as well as incorporating several major shipyards.
Ignacio Erroz, General Manager at OneOcean Port Vell comments: “Hosting The Superyacht Show for the next three years is an exciting announcement for OneOcean Port Vell, and one that will enable us to showcase the marina’s outstanding beauty and extensive facilities catering to superyachts, whilst also cementing Barcelona’s status as a key yachting destination in the Mediterranean.”
This announcement will strengthen OneOcean Port Vell’s reputation as a global key player in the superyacht industry having already played host to a number of notable superyachting events including the MYBA Charter Show and the International Barcelona Boat Show.
