A record 295 exhibitors are taking part in the 40th International Boat Show, with 600 boats on show, 260 of them on the water.

The president of the Balearic Islands, Margalida Prohens, opened the 40th edition of the Palma International Boat Show, organised by the Ministry of Business, Employment and Energy, through the Institute of Business Innovation of the Balearic Islands (IDI), and the Balearic Yacht Brokers Association (BYBA) on April 25 and it will run until April 28.

Benchmark among international boat shows

The president of the Government stressed that “the Palma International Boat Show is consolidating and becoming a benchmark on an international scale. … The nautical sector is a tradition for us and is a strategic sector for our economy, which generates seasonal tourism and quality skills”.

New sustainability measures in the yachting sector

The organisation has begun a certification programme for sustainable development to minimise carbon footprints, promote inclusion and equality, increase awareness of the importance of responsible practices. “We are committed to a sustainable sector, which is why we have extended the application period for grants to decarbonise the Balearic nautical sector.”

The inaugural event was attended by Alejandro Sáenz de San Pedro, Minister of Enterprise, Employment and Energy, and Silvia Delgado, manager of the IDI.
