IYC to participate at new LYBRA Superyacht Show

IYC has a busy annual calendar, with presence at all of the most important boat shows and events around the globe. This year the company will be supporting and exhibiting at the inaugural The Superyacht Show, organised by the Large Yacht Builders Association (LYBRA) and hosted at OneOcean Port Vell in Barcelona from 2 to 5 May 2018. The Show will be attended by all nine member companies of LYBRA, including IYC, with plans for the future including attendance by major shipyards as well. IYC will present a number of yachts at the show, including M/Y VAAO with further details of our show fleet to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

The Superyacht Show was developed as a platform for LYBRA members to showcase their yachts for sale in a dedicated setting for serious buyers. The focus of the Show will be wholly on clients, creating an interactive and inspiring environment for them to view high-quality yachts. Organisers describe their vision for the event as “to be recognised as the most customer-centric and enjoyable superyacht show in the world, attracting the highest quality yachts and yachting companies, the most prestigious sponsors and luxury brands, and the most discerning visitors, buyers and brokers.”

OneOcean Port Vell is an ideal setting for the event as the premium destination for superyachts in Spain’s Port of Barcelona. The OneOcean Port Vell marina is also the location of the IYC Barcelona office which opened in the marina’s Gallery Building December 2016. Barcelona is a popular yachting hub with a vibrant culture, and as a destination is sure to prove an added lure for clients looking to visit The Superyacht Show.

Attending and supporting The Superyacht Show is a key part of IYC’s commitment to industry growth and development, and fits in perfectly with the company’s client-focused offering. “In developing The Superyacht Show the members of LYBRA wished to create a new, pre-Summer sales opportunity and we plan to steadily grow the show into a “must-attend event” for superyacht buyers, charterers, their representatives and brokers from around the world,” says Stefanos MacrymichalosCEO and partner of IYC. “Over the coming years we hope to have established a significant new event in the superyacht calendar with strong support from stakeholders within the industry as well as from sponsors and visitors alike.”
