As one of the most prestigious luxury yachting events of the year at the heart of the Mediterranean charter grounds, the Monaco Yacht Show is the perfect place for shipyards to debut their newly launched superyachts and showcase the fine attention to detail from expert craftsmen and skilled engineers.
At this year’s event there are 12 new motor yachts of 40 metres (131 feet) making their first-time public appearances; listed from longest to shortest they are:
VOLPINI 2 – AMELS – 57.7M/189FT
The first hull in the Amels 188 range, superyacht VOLPINI 2 will be available to view by appointment at the Monaco Yacht Show this year. She is also the first yacht in the Limited Editions range to have Amels Hybrid Power installed, and the first Tier III-compliant new build anywhere in the world.
Raised ceilings across the decks increase the sense of space on board, and when guests want to savour outdoor living they have a choice of alfresco lounges and a spacious sundeck laid out with sun loungers and a Jacuzzi.
POWER PLAY – DAMEN – 55.5M/180FT

IRISHA – HEESEN – 51M/167FT

LATONA – CRN – 50M/164FT
The Turquoise hull in classic styling reminiscent of the 60s and 70s is beautiful by itself, yet the custom-made Art Noveau interiors from the CRN in-house team are the highlight for anyone lucky enough to step aboard: The music-themed skylounge has a sofa curving around the embroidered harp on the carpet and a white-lacquered piano entertains guests, while on the main deck the focus is placed on formal dining with side terraces opening up the space to the elements. Up to 12 guests are accommodated on board LATONA over five lavish en-suite cabins that feature walnut headboards, oak panelling with fabric centres and custom glass lamps all intrinsic to time period in which it was originally created.
