The industry-only event brings a breath-taking fleet of superyachts, brokerage firms and yacht crews to OneOcean Port Vell, and is considered a must-attend event. Visitors and exhibitors can expect social entertainment, workshops, and awards ceremonies to indulge in fun and excitement, as well as ample networking opportunities.
Curated by the MYBA, the show represents the association’s commitment to encouraging and upholding high standards across all spheres of the superyacht industry. More than 2000 guests are expected attend across the course of the show, with over 500 exhibitors to explore.
Previous shows enjoyed 16 successful years in Genoa, Italy, before relocating to the stunning marina of OneOcean Port Vell in Barcelona this year. After 32 editions of the show, and 2 absences due to the ongoing pandemic, MYBA appears to be back in full swing – bigger and better than ever.
Here are some of the largest and most notable superyachts attending the 2022 show:
Victorious - 85m
Delivered last summer in Turkey, Victorious is a true explorer superyacht capable of circumnavigating the world whilst retaining the essense of true luxury. Built by AK Yachts, the 2,308 GT superyacht has a beam of 14.2m and an overall draft of 4.4m. Her build was initiated in the Chilean shipyard Marco Yachts and the vessel was originally dubbed Gin Tonic II. After a bumpy journey that included being shipped from Chile to New Zealand in parts, Victorious was completed in Turkey and then delivered fourteen years after her build began. There is a personal helipad on the bow of the vessel capable of holding an AC145 or equivalent helicopter transport, an indoor elevator and an impressive cinema to keep guests entertained. There is also a wine and cigar club room with a built-in fireplace which exemplifies the luxurious nature of the superyacht.
Her interior was designed by British based design studio, H2 Yacht Design and features accommodation for 12 guests in SIX cabins and includes a private deck for the owner’s personal usage. The superyacht is packed with amenities including a 200-square-metre beach club with three vast terraces that can unfold to create more outdoor space, a large indoor swimming pool, a fully equipped gym, relaxing spa and beauty salon.
She is currently listed for sale with Burgess.
Secret - 82.5m
Secret was commissioned and operated by a very experienced yacht owner, and she has been maintained to a very high standard. She completed her 5-year Class Survey in 2018 and had a full repaint in 2017. She comes to the market in turnkey condition and ready for a new owner.
Her striking exterior is the work of the renowned Sam Sorgiovanni and she comes packed full of features to entertain any type of guest. These include a cinema, gym, elevator, massage room and two large tenders. She is a fully capable global cruiser thanks to her range of 5,000nm and cruising speed of 14 knots.
Secret accommodates 12 guests in 6 staterooms with an additional 7th guest-finished cabin accommodating 3 children or staff. She is also capable of accommodating 23 crew members.
She is currently listed for sale with Burgess.
Stella Maris - 72.1m
Stella Maris is a spectacular 72-metre yacht, which represents a definitive step forward for VSY and is also conceived to be taken as a reference point for the market.
The project - entrusted to the expertise of the architect Espen Øino in cooperation with Laurent Giles Naval Architects – is blending traditional elements of design and layout with new variations on a theme, such as the staggered internal decks, the heights of the saloons and the innovative form of the bow. The resulting layout ensures a volume, more usually seen in yachts of greater dimensions, of 2,114 GRT.
Also, it was possible to share the various functions on board among the decks thus rendering greater flexibility for any further different layout requirements, flexibility which constitutes one of the corner stones of VSY building philosophy, with the aim of satisfying the widest possible requirements of the owner.
Besides there being one deck exclusively for the guests, there is a separate Owner’s deck and saloons with finished heights of 270 cm and the pleasure of enjoying green landscapes at sea - and this must be an exclusive novelty - with real house-plants crossing the decks.
Concepts of the internal and external spaces are interpreted in a very unconventional way. For example, in the main and upper saloons and the Owner’s cabin, there are spectacular walls entirely of glass, thus allowing the eye to see and enjoy beyond what would normally be a rigid barrier.
A certified helideck and a sundeck conceived also for evening use with suitable atmospheric lighting, are featured by essential materials and colour tones reminiscent of a Mediterranean beach which is even more emphasized by the large beach area located near the water.
The interior design by Studio Reverberi is based on simple lines but refined, embellished with natural stones, fabrics and veneers that spell freshness, lightness and luminosity where the external and internal ambiences merge.
Stella Maris is yet another example of VSY’s ability to interpret the most exclusive ideas of an Owner creating leisure craft where living as sea is an unimaginable privilege and pleasure.
She is currently available for charter with World Yacht Group.
Triumph - 65.4m
Triumph is a brand new 65.40 metre fully custom Benetti yacht with sleek and clean lines spanning her six decks. The steel displacement hull and the superstructure, made with aluminium, painted in a classic white with aft in striking black. The external lines were penned by Giorgio M. Cassetta, complementing the naval architecture by Benetti. Green & Mingarelli Design contributed to the interiors, adding to the work done in-house by Benetti. The aggressive streamlined exteriors were designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta notably using large curved windows to balance the yacht’s impressive presence.
The Sun Deck sits at the top the yacht on the sixth deck, not always present on yachts of this size. The crows nest features an elegant jacuzzi, comfortable seating and a table for Six that can be used even while navigating, thanks to ample wind sheltering. The aft cockpit on the Main Deck is an outdoor spot, sheltered yet in contact with the environment, perfect for conversation and relaxation at any time of day. Amidships, the large and bright living area, consisting of a dining and relaxation space, is complete with every comfort.
Triumph accommodates twelve guests in six sumptuous staterooms. The owner’s apartment, set over a sprawling 130 square meter area, takes full advantage of the deck’s spaciousness and stunning views. Also on the Main Deck, a large VIP stateroom considered as the second master dedicates an opulent suite to the guests. The sleeping area amidships includes two double cabins and two twin cabins with pullmans for an additional eight guests.
She is currently available for charter with Royal Yacht International.
