Olympic Yacht Show 2023

Greece’s largest in-water show, the Olympic Yacht Show, has revealed details of attendance following the third edition of the four-day show, which ran from 19-22 October 2023.

Held at the facilities of Olympic Marine in Lavrio, the Olympic Yacht Show welcomed more than 15,000 visitors this year, who came to examine 120 new boats on display in the show’s floating section, including several national and European premiers. Managers of 100 brands and manufacturers were also in attendance.

“The upward trend in attendance and exhibitor participation at the 3rd Olympic Yacht Show is a token of the avid interest of the Greek market in high-quality sea tourism and proves that our country can boast top professionals in the yachting sector,” says Giorgos Riginos, CEO of Riginos SA, which sponsored the event.

“We believe that the Olympic Yacht Show is a pivotal organisation since it gives us the opportunity to show our boats in their natural environment, the sea.”

Kostas Koronakis, CEO of rope manufacturer D. Koronakis S.A. adds: “The direct interaction with our clients helped us get valuable feedback, and we are now ready to further improve our products for next year. The Olympic Yacht Show was even better than the first two years. I need to focus on the floating section of the exhibition, which, to our satisfaction, has grown even bigger.”

Nikos Zarifis, managing director of Thrace Labea, adds: “The Olympic Yacht Show has become an institution, a prospect we already predicted the first year it was held. This year, we brought to the show all of the new Saxdor models and visitors had the opportunity to see for the first time in Greece the new 400 that premiered in Monaco. We are very pleased with the attendance and promise to be back in 2024.”

Dimitris Deligiannis, managing partner of Atalanta Marine, also notes: “Atalanta Marine was the first company to support the Olympic Yacht Show. It is the only show able to support the boats we represent. For yet another year, we have received great feedback from the public, much to our satisfaction.”
