Monaco Yacht Show

The Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) is an annual trade show in Monaco, where some of the newest luxury yachts are on display. The four-day event had its 17th anniversary in September, 2007, and features conferences and cocktail parties – basically a place to network and make new contacts. Over 500 exhibitors show off their products – the boats range from around 65 feet to over 250 feet in length.

The MYS is held in Port Hercules, and is Europe's biggest in-water display of super and mega yachts.[1]

Monaco Yacht Show 2014

The 2014 Monaco Yacht show is set to be the largest in its history, with an estimated 33,000 visitors expected. There is expected to be over 115 yachts on show, which measure 5,179 in total from stem to stern. This is a greater distance than the Circuit de Monaco and further than an F1 car can travel in 60 seconds.[2]

Debut Yachts

As with most years there are a number of yachts that have been launched in August which are due to debut at the Monaco Yacht Show.[3] These include the following:

  • Illusion 1
  • Project Sunrise
  • ROCK.IT
  • Y710
  • Thumper
  • Anyuta

This time of year often proves to be busy for yacht brokers and builders, with a number of new orders or refits traditionally being placed during August and September each year.
