Every year in late September, Port Hercules transforms into a vast boat show dedicated to luxury yachting. The latest edition is scheduled for September 22 to 25 and promises to be spectacular, offering a premium visitor experience like never before. Let us be your guide through this world of possibilities!
First held in 1991, the Monaco Yacht Show has naturally established itself as an unmissable annual event for luxury yachting and super yachting (motor and sailing yachts over 25 metres high) enthusiasts. Created by Maurice Cohen and organised by the Informa group, this event has continued to grow and attract both industry professionals and a high-end international clientele.
The Monaco Yacht Show is a great opportunity to climb aboard around sixty unique and majestic superyachts in the natural and enchanting bay of Monaco. Some of these luxury boats are 100 meters long! Take the time to admire these architectural gems bursting with ingenuity and innovation. During the 2021 edition, around forty new yachts will be unveiled by major shipbuilders, such as Benetti, Feadship, Lürssen and Oceanco.
To enjoy this exceptional experience to the full, make sure to visit all the different exhibition spaces. Head to the Upper Deck Lounge to meet 300 exhibitors and creators of these dream spaces, including interior designers and creators of luxury items (crystalware, tableware and more). This modern and refined exhibition venue, in all
its excellence and sophistication, opens its doors to the public. All with an eye-catching panoramic view of the legendary Port Hercules. If you dream of owning or chartering a yacht, come and try your hand at being a yacht builder by designing a superyacht from scratch!
Another unmissable highlight of the show is the Monaco Yacht Summit. If you’re planning to buy a yacht or already own one, you can hear from and ask questions to the leading experts in shipbuilding, yacht design, yacht management, yacht rental, and yacht purchasing.
Finally, discover the Sapphire Experience, our VIP visitor program, for an exclusive welcome. Enjoy bespoke meetings and tours, exclusive access to gala dinners, private cocktail parties aboard yachts, cruises on luxury tenders in the turquoise Mediterranean sea off the coast of Monaco and more to fully immerse yourself in the world of yachting.
This annual event also provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy the treasures of the Principality. Stroll along the colourful narrow streets of Le Rocher, enjoy a shopping spree at one of the luxury boutiques in the prestigious One Monte-Carlo district, have a drink in a cosy or lively bar, dine in one of the Principality’s high-end restaurants. You can even try your luck at the tables of the famous Casino de Monte-Carlo. The possibilities are endless!
As for where to stay in Monaco, Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer has a range of luxury establishments for you to choose from. Located a stone’s throw from Port Hercules, the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo or the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo provide the perfect base, offering breathtaking views of this impressive yacht fleet. Unless you prefer the glamour of the Monte-Carlo Beach or the relaxed lifestyle at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hôtel & Resort to make the most of the event.
The city is full to the brim with fascinating and enchanting places to meet your friends or colleagues to chat about your shared passion: Yachts, whether charter or private, from bow to stern.
