Inside The Monaco Yacht Show

Monaco Yacht Show

The world’s most luxurious superyachts take center stage at The Monaco Yacht Show.

Monaco has long been synonymous with beauty and adventure. From the glamour introduced long ago by Princess Grace, to the excitement of the Monaco Grand Prix, to the assortment of dazzling yachts and superyachts moored within its picturesque harbor, Monaco is a place for bon vivants and dreamers and if those dreams include ownership of a superyacht, September is the time to visit. From September 27 – 30, this French Riviera enclave plays host to The Monaco Yacht Show, the world’s largest assemblage of innovative superyachts and luxury tenders, each showcased for guests within Monaco’s Port Hercule.

Originally established in 1991 merely as a broker event, the show has morphed into an international celebration of utter indulgence and luxury, drawing in yacht owners, enthusiasts, and potential buyers from all over the world. The Monaco Yacht Show is organized by the British events and publishing company Informa and under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco. This year’s show features 118 superyachts, more than 40 of which are making their world premiere, such as the Francesco Paszkowski-designed Baglietto T52, featuring an open beach club spanning two decks and a swimming pool with a changeable-depth floor, and the intriguingly brass-colored Anjelif built by Columbus Yachts. Its bow-located helipad converts to an open-air cinema. An additional 50+ luxury tenders bring the show’s total vessel value to more than $4 billion.


Quayside vendors include those within the luxury automobile, motorcycle, private jet, helicopter, and submarine industries. Additional luxury products—those considered indispensable to the billionaire lifestyle—are also showcased. Those hand selected to participate include the globe’s most renowned brokers, builders, manufacturers, designers, naval architects and service providers. Each of the 530 purveyors represent the epitome of excellence and innovation.

Guests are invited to browse the harbor-docked yachts and speak personally with industry professionals. Yacht owners, charterers, prospective buyers and private wealth managers are invited to attend The Monaco Yacht Show Summit featuring a panel discussion participating with leading trade experts.

Since 2010, The Monaco Yacht Show has supported the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and its supported environmental action initiatives such as the Ice Memory Foundation which studies climate change effect on the world’s glaciers. The show also supports Blue Marine Foundation’s annual London2Monaco cycling race benefiting the foundation’s environmental initiatives.
