It has been a highly successful first edition of the much anticipated MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show, discovering the benefits of superyacht chartering in Montenegro, a fabulous Mediterranean yacht holiday destination. A great collaboration between Porto Montenegro and MYBA, the event closed on September 6, following an amazing three-day showcase of 29 of the world’s finest private and charter yachts.
“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 showcasing Montenegro’s beautiful cruising grounds and Porto Montenegro’s award winning marina facilities,” commented Billy Canellas, Porto Montenegro’s Marina Business Development Manager.
The event provided a unique networking platform for Brokers, Agents and Yachts operating in the Mediterranean. 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.
Matko Cupic, Captain of charter yacht Infatuation, commented: “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. This advantageous superyacht charter base annually attracts plenty of superyachts, thanks to its yacht-friendly legislation, outside EU tax benefits, a rapidly growing infrastructure, as well as fabulous 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 fantastic cruising grounds of Montenegro and the surrounding region.
