News that superyacht Thalia, the splendid 48.42mts ketch, built by Vitters in 1994, now takes over the role as ‘largest yacht’ in the Show, came as pleasant news to CNI Broker and President of BYBA, Arne Ploch, who said: “Out of 55 yachts on show, we have 29 sailing yachts, which is probably more sailing yachts above 24mts than at any other publicadmission show in the world. We have also been pleased to see the number of brokerage companies bringing yachts steadily increase from the original 6 BYBA members to 19 brokerage companies, with many from the UK and South of France.

“Ashore we have some 30 diverse companies exhibiting everything from yacht care and maintenance,onboard communications and medical services, through to yacht administration, yacht insurance and more.

“From the client side, we have seen positive feedback from direct mailings with many VIP ticket requests already in. Clearly, the attractiveness of the Palma Superyacht Show, combined with the prospect of a short-break visit to Palma over the 1st May public holiday weekend, is definitely working for many northern Europeans looking to make plans for the yachting season ahead.”

Substantiating growing confidence in the Show, Arne’s brother, Jens Ploch, who works with Pantaenius Insurance said: “As one of the few organizations specializing solely in yacht insurance, we sponsored the show passes last year and were more than pleased to take a more permanent stand presence this year!”

This year’s official Show charity will be Joves Navegants, a local sail training charity for underprivileged teenagers. Staff at Joves Navegants seek to integrate and motivate a wide group of young people, including those disabled, economically disadvantaged or socially challenged, through various sail training activities, team participation in regattas and marine environment awareness programmes.

Participants at the PSS Party on Saturday 3rd May are being asked to donate 10€ per wristband/ticket to the cause where 100% of the proceeds will be put to good use.
