The much anticipated Myba Pop-Up Superyacht Show came to a close on September 6th after a spectacular three-day showcase of 29 of the world’s finest superyachts and a gathering of more than 80 brokers and agents from the industry who had the opportunity to discuss business, but also explore the benefits of chartering in Montenegro.
Glorious weather ensured Montenegro was at its brightest with sparkling waters and clear skies for the guests to experience all that the delightful country has to offer.
The event provided a unique networking platform for Brokers, Agents and Yachts operating in the Mediterranean and received support from some of the leading brands in the industry including Edmiston, Northrop and Johnson, Camper and Nicholson, Ocean Independence and Burgess.
All participants were invited to join a seminar programme sponsored by Regent Porto Montenegro, which included a presentation by Easy Tax and Rosemont Yacht Services on tax and registration regulations in Montenegro, but also in the Adriatic and other Mediterranean destinations. Evenings were reserved for social events organised across Porto Montenegro and in partnership with Berba Tax-Free Wine Provisioning and International Yacht Collection.
We are very proud to have delivered a successful first edition of MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show with an impressive number of yachts and international brokers that exceeded our expectations. This has been a real team achievement and a great collaboration between Porto Montenegro and MYBA. The feedback from the show is very positive and we are now looking forward to announce the 2016 edition during the Monaco Yacht Show in two weeks time. We are expecting the number of participants to grow exponentially in 2016 allowing for it to become one of the leading superyacht shows in the Adriatic showacasing Montenegro's beautiful cruising grounds and Porto Montenegro's award winning marina facilities, says Billy Canellas, Porto Montenegro’s Marina Business Development Manager.
Fiona Maureso Charter Director of Northrop & Johnson and President of MYBA, continues, "This was truly a great first edition of the show. The feedback from the brokers and agents is very positive, as they had a great 3 day opportunity to explore the yachts based in Porto Montenegro and discover the many wonderful things that Montenegro has to offer to them and their clients."
Matko Cupic, Captain of the S/Y Infatuation, confirms: “Montenegro is truly a hidden gem. It has become the new “it place” and will be the most logical choice for superyacht owners for years to come.”
Over the last few years, Montenegro has become the new superyacht hotspot of the Mediterranean. Its yacht-friendly legislation, outside EU tax benefits and rapidly growing infrastructure has superyachts flocking year-round to use this advantageous charter base and explore the 4000+ islands which line the coast from Croatia to Greece.
The MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show is a new B2B superyacht event, bringing together international brokers, agents and yachts to discover the developing infrastructure and exceptional cruising grounds of Montenegro and the surrounding region.
