The Monaco Yacht Show

Monaco Yacht Show
Monaco, the Principality in the French Riviera, is the hot spot for Yacht owners, designers, brokers and builders - the crème de la crème of the superyacht industry.
The entire yacht industry waits in excitement for the opening of the world’s most important yacht show, which is held once a year at Port Hercule, Monaco.
The Monaco Yacht Show is the luxury show for superyachts, yacht lifestyle, yachting products, yachting services, yacht brokers, yacht designers, yacht suppliers, yacht outfitters, luxury cars, decorations and jewelry. More than 500 businesses from the yachting industry present their latest motor and sailing yachts to customers from all over the world.

Products and services of the highest quality

Port Hercule in Monaco
The most renowned superyacht companies take the chance to impress influential visitors with a truly remarkable showcase involving some of the finest superyachts on the water. For yacht builders, the Monaco Yacht Show is the perfect place to display world premieres. In 2011, the longest motor yacht presented at the show was the Seaven Seas (86.01 m), built especially for Steven Spielberg by Oceanco. This $200 million yacht has seven cabins, a 250 m² saloon, a 5 meter movie screen and a giant pool with a thick glass wall, which can also be used as a movie screen. The Seven Seas superyacht is supposed to be offered for charter at a cost of $1.3 million per week. The show’s biggest sailing yacht was the Hemisphere, the world’s biggest catamaran, designed by VPLP and built by Pendennis.

A superlative show and first class events

All around the Monaco Yacht Show, there were numerous maritime attractions, yacht parties, meetings with yacht designers and businesses associated with the yachting industry, and those meetings could be attended by invited guests.
For the Captain’s Dinner at the Monaco Yacht Club on 22nd September 2011, there was a special transfer service offered by Maybach Manufaktur in cooperation with Fraser Yachts. The guests were taken from their hotels or yacht brokers to the Captain’s Dinner in a stylish Maybach limousine. At the Monaco Yacht Club, a white Maybach Landaulets - one of Monaco’s most beautiful red carpet celebrities - was waiting for the guests to arrive.

World class events for the crème de la crème of the superyacht industry

Every year, Monaco becomes the place to be for billionaires, millionaires and yachting fans. In 2011, international producers presented the 100 most splendid yachts and displayed 40 world premieres. Boat International hosts a number of world class events every year, entertaining the crème de la crème of the superyacht industry: owners, designers, brokers and builders.
Superyachts Launch Party at the Le Méridien Beach Plaza
More than 300 invited guests came together on 23rd September 2011 to celebrate the Superyachts Launch Party in the prestigious Le Méridien Beach Plaza hotel in Monte Carlo. Lovers of exceptional yachts should not forget to have a look at "The Superyachts", a book which was presented at the occasion. In the course of the evening, awards were given to the Charter Captain and the Crew of the Year. After the presentation of awards, the guests had an excellent dinner, and then the DJ made sure the party carried on through the night. The Le Méridien Beach plaza hotel with its relaxed atmosphere and beautiful surroundings proved to be nothing but the best place for the Monaco Yacht Show Summer Party. The luxurious pool area, where chilled champagne and a great diversity of fine wines as well as delicious food were served, set the perfect scene to discuss plans for September with the organizers of the Monaco Yacht Show.

The Monaco Yacht Show was also the hope of the entire yachting industry, which has been suffering from a poor order situation. At the show, the companies exhibited their finest selections, so that only top-of-the-range products and services were presented. The Monaco Yacht Show is a unique opportunity to witness a meeting of all the important yachting companies’ managers and to have a close look at the latest high technology nautical products and luxury yachting services which are presented at the stands on the 9000 m² exhibition area. 100 superyachts and megayachts between 25 and 90 meters of length were displayed, 40 of which as world premieres (with an average length of 44 meters). The 500 exhibiting companies were nothing but the crème de la crème of the yachting industry: the most prestigious shipyards, the best yacht designers, the leading brokers and the most renowned suppliers of superyacht equipment.

Social Events at the Monaco Yacht Show
There is a series of prestigious and spectacular social events which take place during the Monaco Yacht Show. At cocktail parties, dinners or cultural events, actors from the yachting industry can exchange thoughts, network and socialize in a relaxed atmosphere. Events such as the Captains’ Party, the Prix du Design and the Green Plus Yacht award are an integral part of the Monaco Yacht Show experience. In addition, the Monaco Yacht Show has been working closely with the Albert II of Monaco Foundation, a foundation which has put a lot of effort into promoting environmental and forest protection, for example by providing both financial as well as scientific support.
At the Monaco Yacht Show, we met a very relaxed Roman Abramovich, who is known in the yachting industry for his own superyacht fleet, which includes megayachts such as Pelorus, Ecstasea, Le Grand Bleu, Eclipse, as well as Luna, the world’s largest expedition yacht (115 m), and the superyacht Sussurro (49,9 m), which can reach a maximum speed of 46 knots (85 km/h) thanks to a pump-jet. Abramovich’s fleet even includes two submarines.
Luna, the 115 m luxury yacht, made headlines when Dasha Zhukova, Abramovich’s girlfriend, obstructed the view of Venice’s famous water streets during her visit to the Biennale, which was much to the annoyance of the Venetians. In the beginning, British magazines called London-based Dasha Zhukova a "socialite", implying that she was nothing more than a member of a society which is attracted to parties, vernissages and fashion shows. However, ever since they found out that Dasha Zhukova comes from a super-rich family, that she has royal friends like Charlotte Casiraghi and that she has been the art scene’s it-girl since the Moscow art gallery was founded, the stories about her in the yellow press have been much more positive.
Our favorite quote by Dasha Zhukova: "I don't think I have to know everything about art. I travel a lot, and just by default I end up seeing exhibitions.“
