new dawn for barcelona The MYBA Char­ter Show re­lo­cates

One Ocean Port Vell was awarded the 2017 MYBA Char­ter Show, beat­ing 16-year vet­eran Genoa and new en­try Nice to host the pop­u­lar event in its city cen­tre har­bour. The show will run from April 24-26, 2017.

The show will be held over four lo­ca­tions in the ma­rina: Span­ish Quay, Barceloneta Quay, De­posit Quay and Sota Mu­ralla Quay. The ma­rina, which com­pletes its fi­nal eight berths in Au­gust, opened in 2014 fol­low­ing an €80 mil­lion in­vest­ment. Sixty-eight berths rang­ing from 22 to 190 me­tres are on of­fer, which should ap­peal to larger yachts – Dil­bar vis­ited for a week in June.

Paul Cook, gen­eral man­ager of Oneo­cean Port Vell, said: “It is a great hon­our for Oneo­cean Port Vell (OOPV) to be ap­pointed as host of the pres­ti­gious MYBA Char­ter Show from 2017, and we would like to thank MYBA for their con­fi­dence in us. Barcelona is one of the world’s lead­ing cities, and with OOPV it is now a prom­i­nent su­pery­acht des­ti­na­tion with un­ri­valled ma­rina fa­cil­i­ties and in­fra­struc­ture. This, com­bined with the eas­ing of leg­is­la­tion on Span­ish char­ters that has had a pos­i­tive im­pact on the de­mand for char­ter­ing and cruising in the re­gion, en­sures that OOPV and MYBA are po­si­tioned to de­liver the next evo­lu­tion of this event in 2017 and be­yond.”
