Olympic Yacht Show Mega-Event in Greece Will Show Off Best

ATHENS – Greece already a prime destination for the world’s uber-rich, they’ll have a chance to gawk at new marine toys on Oct. 7 with the second Olympic Yacht Show that will show off premium vessels.

Organizer ONDECK Events said it’s expected to be a show-stopper at the newly renovated facilities of Lavrio, a small port town that’s a jumping off point for ferries to islands.

Forbes magazine, which caters to those with deep pockets, said there’s strong interest in the show despite being held 43 miles southeast of Athens, and that potential buyers from abroad are keen on it as well.

“The fact that this is the only yacht show in Greece that’s specifically designed to showcase medium-sized yachts all the way up to some of the largest superyachts and to the growing industry that surrounds them makes this show even more unique,” the report said.

Five-star hotels and super-luxury resorts have been popping up around Greece to take advantage of the interest by the wealthy in having their own enclaves away from other tourists in the country.
