As marine tourism grows, the more yacht charter becomes an essential tourism product that creates hundreds of jobs and additional income for tourism businesses.
2023 will be a year of new records for Greek tourism as it “comes on” from a very successful year, 2022. Greece is in the top twenty best performing countries in terms of tourism revenue in 2022 compared to 2019. According to the World Tourism Organization (WTO) is only 3% short of 2019 revenues. With this performance, Greece is in eleventh place worldwide and sixth compared to European countries.
Tourism: New records in 2023
Boat charters continue their upward trend
Everything shows that the trend is gaining strength, since boat holidays are the new trend, from simply renting a boat without a license for sea tour, to renting a larger boat, with or without a skipper for one or more days.
Whatever the use of the boat is, whether for a walk and swimming at nearby beaches, or for multi-day longer trips (island hopping) and nautical tourism, the cost is affordable, and many times lower than the cost of buying and owning a boat.
Those who already have a leisure boat rental company or want to start a new boat rental, or water sports business, can take the opportunity to learn about all the financing or subsidy tools available, and choose between the biggest boat brands and Greek shipyards .
The demanding year of 2023
Last year, most offshore and island boating businesses had a very strong season, with demand outstripping supply. But this is also happening in boat and marine engine deliveries, with shipyards and import companies having arranged deliveries even until the end of 2023.
So, anyone who is looking to add to their boating range this season, has to make a decision as soon as possible to secure your investment for the 2023 season and the Boat & Fishing Show 2023 is an opportunity not to be missed!
For marine tourism professionals, the BOAT & FISHING SHOW will be an opportunity to find ready-to-ship boats and outboard motors, aiming to create new partnerships.
The exhibition will take place at exhibition center MEC Paiania, 9 – 12 March. EKO supports the “BOAT & FISHING SHOW 2023” exhibition as a gold sponsor, strengthening an important institution of the boat industry and the overall marine activity.
