The Mediterranean – the superyacht industry’s biggest cruising ground – has been placed under the microscope by the European Committee for Professional Yachting to better understand the latest yacht navigation data for the period between 2015-2021. In this study, the organisation analysed every major yachting country in the Med, taking stock of the trends in attendance, objective attractiveness and general popularity of the various superyacht hubs in the region.
There were over 65 million yacht positions to take into account – all for yachts over 24 metres equipped with AIS. The criteria for a data point was that the time spent in one position has to be for more than one hour, this of course can create a bias as some yachts tend to turn off their AIS during a long stay. These graphs also don’t distinguish between the growth of the market itself and the growth in the use of AIS equipment on board, however, the ECPY say that they do correct for this bias.
