Three brokerage yachts to see at the Palma International Boat Show 2022

The new edition of Palma International Boat Show, which began today at the Moll Vell in Palma, exceeds the figures before the pandemic. Thus, the show will have 276 participating companies, six more than in 2019 and 49 more than last year, which represents an increase of 21% compared to 2021. In addition, a total of 264 ships will be presented on the water.

One of the highlights of the new edition is the participation of new companies that had never participated in the PIBS before. In concrete terms, 28% of exhibitors are coming to Palma for the first time to present their new nautical products. This is due to a segmentation of the surface which allowed them to gain a little more exhibition space despite a fairground of the same dimensions of 81,388 m². In addition, this is also due to the fact that due to the lack of stock that some companies have suffered from, not all moorings have been occupied as planned, which has made it possible to accommodate new additions, making it possible to offer a very large sample of what the maritime industry is today.

In the upcoming edition (54%) are local, (18%) national and (28%) international companies. Indeed, in recent years, the Palma International Boat Show has become the event that opens the nautical season and one of the most important gateways for international companies wishing to establish themselves on the islands, or establish relations with local companies and thus open up new commercial channels.

The Palma International Boat Show includes the Palma Superyacht Village, for the sale and rental of boats over 24 meters in length. This year it is characterized by the largest exhibition of sailboats in Europe, as well as a wide range of motor boats. This area also includes the area dedicated to the repair and maintenance of boats (refit & repair), which this year has the participation of 21 companies dedicated to this activity of the nautical industry, as well as service companies in d other areas of the fair. On the other hand, the Palma Superyacht Village will inaugurate a new space dedicated to crews, where specialized activities and training will take place, a commitment to growth in the years to come.
