Monaco Yacht Show 2017

What is the Monaco Yacht Show?

The Monaco Yacht Show is held annually in September at Port Hercules, Monaco and brings together professionals from the international luxury yachting sector. Companies and individuals include luxury yacht builders, brokers, designers, equipment suppliers, and service providers and they gather to show off the latest and greatest luxury yachts for sale in Monaco.

The Monaco Yacht Show is the only yacht show worldwide which is exclusively devoted to superyachts for sale of at least 25 meters in length. It is the largest floating luxury yacht display in Europe of super and megayachts. This makes the Monaco Yacht Show premiere showcase for Super Yachts.

Some Recent History

The Monaco Yacht Show started off as a superyacht broker oriented show in 1991. Since then over the last 15 years it has evolved considerably, benefiting from tremendous growth in the international yachting industry. Monaco is also perfectly placed in the heart of the Mediterranean and now with one of the largest luxury yacht harbours worldwide. The Monaco Yacht Show also has the great privilege of having H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco as its patron who provides a great deal of ongoing support.

Exhibitors at the previous MYS included around 80-90 shipyards, more than 20 yacht brokers, more than 45 naval architects & interior designers, around 200 equipment manufacturers, around 70 luxury yacht service providers, numerous luxury brands as well as yacht tender companies, a number of federations and many international luxury magazines. For the peripheral luxury sector: private jets and helicopters, luxury goods and accessories… Also the world's top 15 customised super yacht builders were at the show.

The official website for the event is here.

The Monaco Show includes:

- The Quayside exhibition where over 500 exhibiting companies exhibit in a 15000sqm area – The leading international yachting industry companies.

- The Floating Exhibition where more than 100 of the world's finest 82 to 262 feet luxury yachts congregate. Each year around 40 motor and sailing yachts premier at the Monaco Yacht Show.

- The Participants (over 26 000 people) featuring private individuals who are interested in new yacht models and yacht purchase, international yachting professionals and the actual participants - representing over 40 nationalities (Exhibitors & visitors).

As far as the exhibitors are concerned, ship builders, naval architects and interior designers earmark the show to advance their latest creations and work. Important advancements in super yachts are showcased an there often seems to be one or two pioneering yachts or yacht designs which are the talk of the show. The unique three masted clipper S/Y Maltese Falcon was a hit in 2006 and the 2007 event brought M/Y ALPHA NERO by OceAnco. The 2012 event saw such wonderful yachts as the 50.50m Wally BETTER PLACE60.95 m DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER60m superyacht LYANA or the 73.51m mega yacht MOGAMBO by Nobiskrug. 

The 2013 show exhibited such impressive mega yachts as the 75,40m Lurssen yacht NORTHERN STAR, the 80m CHOPI CHOPI superyacht by CRN, the 73m Dunya Yachts RED SQUARE, the Oceanco mega yacht ANASTASIA, the 72m VSY STELLA MARIS yacht or the Lurssen superyacht QUATTROELLE

MALTESE FALCON YACHTAs with other important shows, CharterWorld visits the Monaco Yacht Show in order to keep up to date with the industry movements and individual yachts. As with the broker only shows, like the Genoa Yacht Charter Show and the St Maarten and Antigua ones, we study the various abilities of the various yachts, new or old. We look at their condition if the yacht is already known to us and we consider their build quality and crew personality if they are new. What features does the yacht have? What about her layout, deck space, decor and amenities? These are all important aspects when it comes to matching our charter clients to their ideal charter yacht or yacht for sale.
