The Superyacht Cup Palma

First established in 1996, the annual Superyacht Cup is the longest running superyacht regatta in Europe attracting over 200 sailing superyachts to the event during its 15 year history.

It is a truly unique gathering of some of the world’s largest privately owned sailing yachts over 24m that come to Palma each year in June to take part in the four-day invitational regatta.

Using a specially developed handicap system (which is also used for the successful ‘Bucket regattas’ in St Barth’s and Newport, RI), yachts of very different designs and length can sail against each other in a close and safe environment.

The Superyacht Cup is also famous for its informal ‘family’ atmosphere and lively social programme including ‘apres sail’ dock parties and BBQ’s, and a spectacular gala evening held at Es Baluard Museum of Contemporary Art, overlooking the Port.

The event also provides a professional environment for members of the superyacht industry and other partner companies to meet and network in a relaxed environment.

The Superyacht Cup is supported by local government and tourism authorities to showcase the Balearic Islands as one of the best superyacht bases in the world.
