Organizers said more than 90 brokers and agents have registered for the MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show.

The second edition of the MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show is slated for Sept. 2-4 in Porto Montenegro Marina, and organizers said it has a growing roster of participants.

Owners and captains of superyachts in the broader Mediterranean region have confirmed their attendance. The list of participating yachts includes Lord of the Seas, which was built in 2013 by Egeria Yachts (190 feet), the Philip Zepter yacht JoyMe (163 feet), the Sanlorenzo Reve D'Or (150 feet) and Daima (139 feet).

More than 90 brokers and agents have registered. The show is the only business-to-business event of its kind in the region and is the result of a close partnership with MYBA, a worldwide yachting association.

“The MYBA Pop-Up Superyacht Show is a unique combination,” said MYBA president Fiona Maureso in a statement.

“It is foremost a sales and charter show, but at the same time it provides an excellent opportunity for brokers to discover a destination that they may not yet be familiar with. Being a pop-up, it is also less formal and the atmosphere always remains relaxed within the marina village. With a yacht club, restaurants and bars, high-end shopping and a five-star hotel, there is no end to the attractions to be found. And that is even before one explores the stunning surrounding areas.”
