Marmaris Yacht Charter Show Is 35 Years Old!

Marmaris Yacht Charter Show, which took place in 11 – 15 May, has celebrated its 35th year. Nearly 100 local and foreign agents visited the show where 28 yachts, each one more magnificent than the other, were exhibited.

The event, which brings together the most selected yachts of our country offering “Crewed Yacht Charters” and the pioneering yachting agencies’ representatives both local and global, helps guiding the agencies hoping to take place in this market as well as offering a great contribution to the local yacht tourism industry.

The opening ceremony of 35th Marmaris Yacht Charter Show, which was sponsored by ERGO Insurance and Marmaris Municipality was held at Marmaris Marina. Mr. Ali Acar, the Mayor of Marmaris was amongst the guests. Guests have enjoyed the unique views of Marmaris Marina whilst enjoying the live music and the complementary food and drinks.

Chef’s Competition, which is organized every year and has become a tradition, has seen fierce competition. Master Chefs of the luxury yachts competed with each other to display their skills.

The concept of this year’s competition was “Turkish Cuisine” which was specified by the organization committee and announced to the chefs prior the event. Chefs, who prepared their menus accordingly, have presented their dishes to five members of the jury individually. In the end of the two day competition prizes and certificates were presented to the winners by the competition sponsor “Gourmet Yacht”.

“Food Presentation”, which is a part of the event and is organized every year, was also received by warm interest. Participating yacht’s chefs have prepared delicious dishes to offer the attending agencies.
