East Med Yacht Show 2018 in Piraeus Expected to be The Best Yet

The 17th East Med Yacht Show, to run May 3-6 in the Zea Marina in Piraeus, is expected to be the biggest and best to date, according to Hellenic Professional Yacht Owners Association (EPEST) President Antonis Stelliatos.

“We will present a wide variety of professional Greek boats, including 20-meter highspeed boats, catamarans, sailing yachts, traditional boats and mega yachts of 50-60 meters… We are expecting everyone during May 3-6 at the Zea Marina in Piraeus… By standing united we can help the Greek economy by supporting two of its key pillars: shipping and tourism,” Stelliatos said during a press conference on Wednesday ahead of the event.

The East Med Yacht Show aims to promote quality sea tourism, upgrade services offered by leisure boats, improve Greece’s position on the global tourism market, establish the port city of Piraeus as an international tourism destination, launch partnerships with foreign institutions and expand cooperation with other Greek stakeholders active in tourism.
