With the Palma Superyacht Show just around the corner, it’s clear why marina Moll Vell’s a hive of activity and the city’s abuzz with the kind of vibrancy only reserved for the hottest events. Whether you’re new to the show or visit/exhibit annually, here are some highlights to look out for during the 7th edition of the yachting industry’s favourite event.
Greater percentage of large motoryachts
Aside from sleek sailing yachts in the 24-30m range, a sweeping selection of large motor yachts will be jostling for visitors’ attention this year. These 50m+ yachts are the type that can easily accommodate 12-14 guests, boast superlative luxuries, such as oversized jacuzzis, hammans and helipads and have the range to take you to the most remote corners of the globe.
This year’s granddaddy of the fleet, the 59,3m motoryacht IMAN, (for sale through Arcon Yachts) is one such boat, as is the 50m INCEPTION. The recently refitted IMAN boasts infinite attributes, such as a beach club, observation lounge and gym with 360 degree views, while INCEPTION, a World Superyacht Awards winner, impresses by means of her four decks for entertaining, sunbathing or relaxing.
Port Adriano Fun Fair returns
Illustrative of the show’s trademark relaxed atmosphere is the return of Port Adriano’s Fun Fair. Especially those that are not familiar with Fun Fair tomfoolery can expect to be caught off guard by the group’s whimsical mime-acts and costumed characters. Fun Fair antics are scheduled to take place from 17.00-19.00 daily.
Delectable food and drinks by the truckload
The Palma Superyacht Show is the kind of event where as many exciting business connections are made at stands (and on yachts) as in the sunshine with a cold drink in hand. Which is why we’ve not only made sure visitors and exhibitors will be well catered for but also that the bar/restaurant area is suitably inviting. Local food virtuosos Straight from the Truck will be serving crisp glasses of wine and freshly-made meals and snacks, all of which can be enjoyed in or outside of a soulful tipi tent.
