Extended Show Area for Palma Superyacht Show
This year’s larger show area at the Palma Superyacht Show will bring about some exciting infrastructural changes, such as the construction of a floating bridge. The temporary bridge, which will connect STP shipyard to Palma’s iconic fisherman’s dock, will allow for a circular route, improving visitors’ flow and viewing experience.
The new bridge, which will measure 72m in length, is hardly a superfluity as the entire yacht basin will be occupied by yachts for sale and charter this year. This means visitors can look forward to eyeing up a larger selection of more sizeable yachts.
In fact, no fewer than 80 yachts will grace the Palma Superyacht Show, with nearly a fourth of all entries boasting lengths over 40m. One of the largest yachts on display will be the 54m three-masted classic schooner Shenandoah of Sark, built in 1902. The impeccably maintained Shenandoah is not only the epitome of timeless elegance, but with her historic pedigree also a remarkable yacht to have at the show. Another supersized yacht is the 52m Tommy, for sale and charter with Moncada Yachts.
The Palma Superyacht Show is acutely aware of the crisis connected with plastic pollution and has announces a collaboration this year with local non-profit CleanWave. Their mission is straightforward: to reduce the use of single-serve plastic bottles on the Balearics. CleanWave will not only be on-site to offer inspiration and strategies but will be manning a water-station, allowing visitors and participants to fill up their reusable bottles free of charge. What’s more, there are currently more than 40 other refill points around the island where you can top up your bottle, for free.
