Porto Montenegro will host the MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show again this year.

The inaugural MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show was held in September last year and Porto Montenegro confirmed the dates for a second show Sept. 2-4.

International brokers, agents and yachts 65 feet and larger will come together for three days of yacht inspections, business-to-business meetings, networking and seminars. There are no restrictions on yacht size because of the marina’s 250-meter LOA berth capacity.

Discounts are available for those who register early. All yachts larger than 65 feet, charter agents, sales brokers, charter managers and technical yacht managers are eligible to register. MYBA Members, Yachtfolio subscribers, Yachtfolio-listed yachts and MYBA e-contract subscribers automatically will be accepted.

Twenty-nine yachts attended last year, including the 163-foot-meter M/Y Mariu, the 153-foot M/Y Charisma and 146-foot M/Y Berzinc.

Broker agencies were represented by Burgess, Edmiston, Camper & Nicholson, Ocean Independence and Northrop & Johnson; seminars at the Regent Porto Montenegro hotel covered topics such as “VAT on charters in the Adriatic” and “Yacht ownership and registration trends inside and out of EU waters.”

“With the show timed at the end of the season, this is an excellent opportunity for brokers to inspect charter and brokerage yachts in a relaxed, yet professional setting and to discover a destination that is becoming ever more popular with owners and charterers,” MYBA president Fiona Maureso said in a statement.
