The Portals Nautical Weekend took place from Saturday May 26 until Monday 28.
During the three-day event, exhibits will be open from 12pm-9pm.
In addition to the various boats, chandlery, tenders and toys on display, there will also be a large display of classic cars on show for the petrol heads, provided by the Mallorca Driving Club.
The organisers confirmed the full program of events and activities that will accompany the public display of 60 boats, featuring all of the major brands, both new and used, including sail and motor yachts from nine to 40m.
These include leading yacht builds from; Fairline, Oyster, Azimut, Beneteau, Bavaria, Riva, Princess, San Lorenzo, Sunseeker, among others.
There was also a good selection of pre-owned motor and sail boats from top local and international brokers including Sunbird, Baxter Marine, Marivent Yachts, Drettmann and Yacht Moments.
This was the first time ever that such a large and varied display of yachts and nautical products combined with various lifestyle attractions has been staged in Mallorca, which is completely open to the public and with no entry fees.
On Sunday at 9.45pm, just after sundown and darkness falls over Puerto Portals, up to 20 hand-picked yachts from the show will leave their moorings, cruise around the harbor and return in an organized procession.
Music, lights and a professional commentary in English and Spanish will accompany this spectacle.
The participating yachts will range from the Fjord Open 40, a modern fast elegant day cruiser, a Princess 23 luxury motor cruiser available for charter, through to the Beneteau Sense 50, a completely innovative modern family sailing yacht which won the 2011 ´Cruising World Boat of the Year Award´.
