MYBA Charter Show 2018


Sarnia’s Dan Armsden and Julia O’Brien will be attending the 2018 MYBA Charter Show which is being held at Marina Port Vell in Barcelona. The show runs from Monday 23rd to Thursday 26th April and the Sarnia stand is located on Moll d’Espanya stand number 46.

This year is the 30th edition of the MYBA Charter show, but only the second year in Barcelona since moving from Genoa in 2017 and promises to be the best show yet. Over the four days the Sarnia team will be meeting with existing and new captains, owners and crew as well as attending seminars and catching up with other professionals from across the industry.

Hot topics for the show will most likely include:

  • Chartering in Greece
  • French social security
  • Recent EU spotlight on yacht leasing structures

The closed attendance show is aimed at generating charter business for attending yachts as well as bringing together the world’s leading charter brokers, yacht managers,yacht fiduciaries and other support services providing them with the opportunity to meet captains and crew.

Dan and Julia would welcome the opportunity to meet with captains, yacht managers and crew to discuss how Sarnia Yachts can help with:

  • Arranging the yacht’s fiscal and charter licence obligations
  • Recruiting crew for the upcoming season and advising on crew employment and payroll matters
