Monaco Yacht Show
The world’s leading yacht show will once again rule the waters of the Mediterranean Sea in the prestigious city of Monaco. It is the largest in-water display of large yachts. An estimated 30,000 people come to see the more than $4.3 billion worth of yachts displayed in the port.
A perfect way for the billionaires to celebrate the end of summer with class. The biggest, newest, and the most costly yacht will be on display on this new edition of the Monaco Yacht Show.
The superyachts definitely are the center of attraction, but there will also be so many more to offer for the opulent observers. As the playground for the rich, Monaco Yacht Show does not lack anything to impress its billionaire patrons.
There will always be super speedboats, helicopters, personal submarines, limousines, and luxury cars to see. Hotels, restaurants, and the Casino will also cater to the (hedonistic) Epicurean needs of the guests.
The ‘Car Deck’ for the exhibits of classic and customized vehicles will display models of the best machinery for connoisseurs’ delight. The ‘Starboard’ is the main exhibition lounge of companies that gives products and services related to the superyacht lifestyle: destinations, luxury products, and arts. Both will be on Quai Antoine Ier.

The Monaco Yacht Show’s Gala Event
The Monaco Yacht Show Inaugural Gala Event is the start of the four-day exhibit. VIP guests and yachting social elites will also have the privilege to attend the 6th Monaco Yacht Show Superyacht Awards, along with the show’s partners, yachting business top-players, and reputed media. A panel of respectable yachting journalists will select the winners of the following categories:
- The MYS/Rina Award
- (Interiors) The MYS Interior Design Award
- (Exteriors) The MYS Exterior Design Award
- The MYS Finest New Superyacht Award
Yachting clients will also have a chance for an informative panel discussion regarding topics in Super-yachting, insights from industry experts and professionals in the Monaco Yacht Summit. It is on the same date as the Inaugural Gala, on September 24, Tuesday, from 12:30pm to 6pm.
In order to make the overall experience clearer to visitors and professionals, a new three-category system is being introduced. There will be a Discover badge for yacht clients, an Advise badge for their advisors and consultants, and a Connect badge for trade visitors. The badges will show the profile of each visitor so that the right people can connect on sight. Buyers can therefore suss out designers and builders at a glance, whilst their captains and reps can readily find equipment manufacturers, for example.
“On Wednesday 22nd September, the Dockside Area will be open to Discover and Advise badges only, so that these categories of visitor can meet with shipyards, yacht brokers, designers or tender manufacturers in a more intimate and personalised environment,” indicated the organiser in a press statement. “From Thursday onwards, the Dockside Area will be open to all participants.”
Sapphire VIP Experience
In an effort to include more personalised experiences, Informa will introduce the ‘Sapphire Experience’, a VIP programme which includes activities at both the show and in the city for superyacht owners, charterers, and potential clients.
