Thanks to its trade-only status, the MYBA Charter Show attracts some of the most prestigious charter companies and brokers from across the world. From the 21st-24th April, they will all flock to OneOcean Port Vell in Barcelona to showcase their selection of yachts. We’ve taken a look at the guest list, and have picked out ten of the most unique yachts attending the MYBA Charter Show and a cool fact about each one.

1. INDIAN EMPRESS


Custom Motor Yacht Indian Empress was delivered by OceanCo back in 2000 and underwent a Mark Berryman refit in 2015. During this refit, a Yamaha Disklavier piano was added to the main salon. This beautiful piano once belonged to none other than Sir Elton John!

2. NERO

Motor Yacht Nero was designed with the discerning gentleman in mind. Her old-school 1930’s styling combined with state-of-the-art, modern amenities make her a very popular charter choice for yachting connoisseurs.

3. JOY

M/Y Joy was delivered just last year by leading Dutch shipyard Feadship. Her special feature? She has one of the most incredible superyacht gyms in the charter fleet. Her unique indoor/ outdoor gym boasts a full range of cardio and strength-training equipment, by Technogym and Gym Marine.

4. ULYSSES


Benetti‘s Ulysses boasts some seriously beautiful furnishings. Her most unusual feature could be the two statues located on her sundeck aft, which are said to represent two crows. Perhaps the owner wanted guests to feel well-guarded?!

5. MEAMINA

59m motor yacht Meamina has a few very special features. These include her main saloon cinema, and her very own custom water slide! Yacht spotters around the globe always comment on just how wide (or beemy) this yacht is for her length. This means much more interior volume for your money!

6. IDOL


OceanFast’s M/Y Idol is a pretty sight thanks to her timeless styling and vast outdoor spaces. Something you might not notice at first glance, however, is her Teppanyaki Grill situated on the sundeck… The presence of this Japanese show cooking eqipment hints that there may well be a very talented Chef on board. Who could resist?!

7. LUCKY LADY

A post shared by @yachtspottercom on


This 63m OceanCo yacht boasts unrivaled outdoor-entertainment features. A clear favourite of many guests is the retractable golf tee that appears at the touch of a button- the first ever on a yacht!

8. TWILIGHT


Twilight is one of the few sailing yachts to be attending the MYBA Charter Show, and features extra-comfortable cruising thanks to its flybridge which is extremely unique for a yacht of this size. She can also reach speeds of up to 14 knots- that’s fast enough for us!

9.CASINO ROYALE


The stunning Sunseeker Predator 108 has just been confirmed for attendance and features in Casino Royale. The luxury motor yacht, owned by villain Le Chiffre, is spotted by Bond right after he lands with the seaplane and is again seen later in the movie. Plus with a top speed of 45 knots she is one of the fastest mega yachts on planet.

10. AXIOMA

A post shared by Axioma (@myaxioma) on


M/Y Axioma was Dunya Yachts‘ debut build. She’s got a lot to boast about, in particular, her styling from the late Alberto Pinto. We think her most awesome feature, however, is her sundeck swim-up bar!
