The Turkish Yachting & Brokers Association (TYBA) is to host the 2nd TYBA Yacht Charter Show in Bodrum from May 9-12 at Yalıkavak Marina.

Around 175 brokers/agents from 19 countries will be exhibiting at the strictly B2B show, with 20 companies from Turkey and Greece displaying nearly 55 boats of up to 50m. The event is closed to the public.

Industry seminars will cover topics such a refit and yacht building, the legal aspects of chartering in Turkey, and flag issues.

The TYBA Chefs’ Competition, “Let’s Cook”, sponsored by CarrefourSA, is also returning. A maximum of 14 yachts will be allowed to participate this year and will be judged in three categories – Best Chef, Best Service and Best Crew.

The TYBA has nearly 50 members comprised of yacht brokers, charter brokers, yacht operators and yacht agents. The association includes all types of marine companies, excluding marinas and shipyards which have their own associations.
