Monaco Yacht Show 2021

Monaco Yacht Show: ‘Mega’ In Every Sense Of The Word

Due to Covid, the show took a siesta last year, but the Monaco Yacht Show is back with a bang. On September 22nd- 25th, the world’s leading designers, boat builders, and architects will gather in the Principality for the most eagerly anticipated boat show in Europe. Nine iceberg-sized mega yachts will be berthed at Port Hercule, and over thirty-nine yachts will make a grand debut. Here, you can expect to see the finest boat builders among Europe docking their latest pedigree models to entice boat buyers with deep pockets, from all over the world .

The Principality boasts more millionaires per proportion of a population than anywhere else globally. Thus it is the natural choice to host a festival to showcase award-winning super yachts. Many prospective yacht buyers will be arriving by private helicopter or jet. In the Upper Deck lounge bar, guests can enjoy relaxing with panoramic views overlooking the harbour. And a selection of electric golf carts enable visitors to ride down around the docks of Port Hercule carbon-free.

The Monaco Yacht Show is about more than buying super yachts, the event will host talks on industry trends and will cover all aspects of chartering, buying, building and operating a super yacht. Industry experts set to take to the stage will include Jonathan Beckett, CEO of Burgess, Michael Breman, Sales Director, at Lürssen (shipyard), Rose Damen, Managing Director for Damen/Amels and finally, Aino-Leena Grapin, CEO of Winch Design.

Who Has A Golden Ticket?

The show will carry out a new ticketing system to prevent overcrowding at the event. Historically, feedback has been that the show was too busy, and with the public more health and safety conscious than ever, it was thought that increasing the price would be a good way of reducing the numbers.

What Is The Average Length of The Yachts At The Monaco Boat Show?

The average length of yachts being showcased at the Monaco Yacht Show is 49 meters in length. That’s large enough to host 10 guests on board with a crew of up to 9, but of course that changes depending on the shape and layout of the yacht.
