Highlights From MEDYS 2024 With IYC

12th May 2024

The Mediterranean Yacht Show 2024 unfolded for its 9th edition against the charming backdrop of Nafplion, Greece from April 27th to May 2nd. It's with a sense of accomplishment that we recall the presence of IYC at this year’s show, proudly displaying the largest fleet in the show, with 24 meticulously selected yachts aligned in perfect symmetry along the waterfront.

Throughout MEDYS 2024, IYC took great joy in hosting a series of events aimed at fostering meaningful connections within our industry, showcasing the talents of the crews on board our yachts, and giving our peers a taste of the experiences to be enjoyed on board. It was wonderful to witness our colleagues, teams, and industry partners come together, sharing moments of conviviality during these gatherings.

Below, we will highlight some of the key moments that defined our participation in this memorable show.
