CYR Exclusive: The Palma International Boat Show makes a Strong Comeback
The Palma International Boat Show reopened on June 3 after two years, and the 2021 show will run until June 6. According to the organizers,the Palma International Boat Show has 227 exhibitors and more than 185 boats at sea, on more than 80,000 square metres of exhibition grounds. Our estimate is that there are approximately another 60 vessels on land. The official numbers do not do justice to the impressive scale of the show as luxury motor yachts dominate. The Palma show aalso features the Palma Superyacht Show, with a new Refit & Repair area. The show has made a strong comeback, after the cancellation in 2020 due to the Covid pandemic. Strict hygiene rules are in place at the show as well as on the whole island of Mallorca with an outdoor mask mandate in place.
The atmosphere of the show is extremely pleasant, with a surprisingly casual atmosphere in such a luxury setting, with many food and beverage facilities offering a relaxing visit similar to the Biograd Boat Show. Opening day was well attended, including a good percentage of international visitors, mostly German speaking, which is a good sign for the boating season ahead.
The Palma International Boat Show is organized by the Balearic Institute for Business Innovation (IDI), under the head of Vice-Presidency and Regional Ministry of Energy Transition, Productive Sectors and Democratic Memory as well as the Balearic Yacht Brokers Association (BYBA). Tickets can only be bought online at Palma International Boat Show website.
