A view from Port Vell

“Barcelona is a fountain of courtesy, shelter of strangers, hospice to the poor, land of the valiant, avenger of the offended, reciprocator of firm friendship, a city unique in its location and beauty.”
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote, 1605

From friends and colleagues to superyachts of splendour, the MYBA Charter show 2018 – its 30th anniversary no less – was an event to remember. A raft of vessels rich in character and beauty, each possessing a wealth of hidden delights above and below the water line, occupied the waters of Barcelona’s Marina Port Vell last week. My trip may have been short, but my list of discoveries is long, from engine room splendour to the life of the aquatic. Barcelona, you beautiful host, I will be back.
