For the past 28 years, the Principality of Monaco has hosted the world’s most impressive international superyacht meeting in its emblematic Port Hercules. In September the Monaco Yacht Show will again welcome superyacht owners, future purchasers and charter clients who will be able to indulge themselves in the 120 superyachts on display.
Among the 2018 collection of luxury yachts, 40 are brand-new designs that will be unveiled by leading shipyards to showcase their work, as is the case every year.
While the final decision to exhibit a yacht always remains with the owners, their agents and representatives work closely with the organizers of the show to allow it to offer the finest showcase of superyachts available. “The Monaco Yacht Show has a worldwide reputation for the exceptional quality of the collection of superyachts on display each year that average close to 50m overall.
About sixty of the yachts exhibited are less than two years old,” explains Gaëlle Tallarida, General Manager of the Show, before stressing that “We work in coordination with participating yacht brokers and shipyards in the interest, first and foremost, of the individual visitor, whether owner or future owner and to help new clients discover the world of luxury offered only by the superyacht industry. The MYS has a duty to offer these visitors the best possible experience, with the supreme quality of the yachts on display as one of the leading criteria.”
Set in September in the iconic Port Hercules, the MYS represents the pinnacle of the superyacht lifestyle against the glamorous backdrop of Monaco since 1991. Every year, the world’s most respected shipyards display 120 extraordinary one-off superyachts and megayachts, of which 40 new launches are annually unveiled in a worldwide debut.
For four days, yacht owners, future superyacht purchasers or charterers, decision-makers in the yachting and luxury industries attend the Monaco Yacht Show to participate in one of the most influential business networks on Earth.
On docks, the MYS curates the showcase of a selection of 580 leading companies in the industry: from the most reputable superyacht builders and nautical suppliers, top yacht designers, luxury manufactures and the best brokerage houses to the most sought-after tenders and water toys, prestige cars, helicopter and private jet manufacturers.
