Some 60 boats from big European yards will be on show at Portals Nautical Weekend


The growing trend for free, boutique boat shows has spread to Mallorca, with the three-day Portals Nautical Weekend set to kick-off on Saturday.

Organisers say there will be 60 new and used boats on display in the marina from yards like Fairline, Azimut, Princess, and Sunseeker.

The show – which is free to enter – will run until Monday, with exhibits open from midday to 9pm.

There will be chandlery, tenders and other boating bits on display, a classic car exhibition and many of the port’s bars, boutiques and restaurants are preparing spcecial offers.

The highlight will be a procession of 20 boats on Sunday evening at 9.45pm. Music, lights and commentary will accompany the parade.

“This is the first time ever that such a large and varied display of yachts and nautical products combined with various lifestyle attractions has been staged in Mallorca, and with no entry fees,” organisers said.
