The MYBA Charter Show is one of the first yacht shows of the season and will run from 2nd to 5th May 2016 in Genoa, presenting all manner of luxury superyachts for charter.

Much the same as the hugely popular Palma Superyacht Show, which opens the Mediterranean season, the Genoa show is organised by MYBA – the Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association. Last year, MYBA celebrated its 30th anniversary and works to improve the industry’s standards for professionalism and ethics. The MYBA Charter Show upholds these values, bringing together yacht owners, brokers and press in the scenic Italian port city.


The 28th edition of the MYBA Charter Show is a trade-only event and will therefore not be open to the public. The prestigious event allows professional charter brokers the opportunity to view the latest charter yachts before the new season gets underway. The event takes place in Genoa’s ancient harbour and attracts a large number of brokers from all over the world. In addition to a selection of over 50 attending superyachts,attendees can enjoy a host of events including lunches, competitions, seminars and parties.

Y.CO, the challenger brand of the superyacht industry, will be attending the MYBA Charter Show 2016 in order to inspect the latest charter yachts on behalf of its clients. The highly experienced charter team at Y.CO will be presenting the magnificent QM OF LONDON. This stunning 49.9m motoryacht is part of the Golden Bay Series, built by Benetti in 1998. Having recently come from a major interior and exterior overhaul, the superyacht will be welcoming charter brokers and press on-board.
