Moving the location of the yearly yacht charter show to Yalıkavak Marina in 2017 was the first step in raising the the standards of the event. This state-of-the-art, modern location offers participants a luxurious and welcoming atmosphere, and is also very easily reachable by air, land and sea transport.
The selection of participating yachts will be given the utmost importance as will the participation of yacht owners and crew members adhering to professional boat show etiquette expectations and standards. Together with the seminars and events that will be offered during the show period, this event will be the a most efficient and productive means to integrate with the luxury yachting sector of Turkey.


Dear 3rd TYBA Yacht Charter Show @ Yalıkavak Marina Participants,

As per the conference call meeting on 16.03.2020 by the TYBA Board of Directors, unfortunately it was decided unanimously to postpone the 3rd TYBA Yacht Charter Show @ Yalıkavak Marina, which was planned to take place between 7-10 May 2020, to May 2021 due to Covid-19 spreading rapidly worldwide and in Turkey, causing unforeseen health risks, as well as travel and meeting restrictions. Our first priority is certainly the health and well being of the general public and all of our participants,  the decision was made after very careful consideration of the current circumstances.  Exact dates of the 2021 TYBA Show will be announced at a later stage. Any participation fees will be refunded within 10 working days less bank expenses or alternatively you may choose to transfer your fees to 2021 Show.

As the TYBA Board of Directors and the Show Committee, we thank to all participants for their support and cooperation so far, and also to all members of the Show Committee for their hard work and efforts, and hope to meet again in better days next year.

Kind Regards,

TYBA Board of Directors & Yacht Charter Show Committee
