Each year, Port Hercule plays host to one of the largest collections of high-end luxury yachts Europe has to offer. The backdrop for the event is the Mediterranean hills of Monaco. With entries from more than 500 major companies in the luxury yachting world, The Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) is the biggest and most consequential of boat shows in the world. Last year the MYS had a record-breaking attendance of 33,000 private and professional visitors.
The show offers a selection of over 100 super and mega yachts to tour and experience, with sizes ranging from 25-90 meters in length. The yachts that will be shown offer the newest high-end technology nautical products from the most prominent luxury yachting professionals in the world. In the center of the show is a 650m2 visiting area reserved for the show’s social and business elite. This area includes a five star restaurant, a champagne bar, a lounge, and private meeting areas.
The MYS takes place on Wednesday, September 25th through Saturday, September 28th. The event is also playing host to the final stop of the 5th Edition Only Watch World Tour. This is a charity event that benefits research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Other featured events during MYS include a Captain’s Party hosted at the Monte Carlo Hotel. The official website for the Monaco Yacht Show offers a virtual tour and film on the event.
