The Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) has taken place since 1991 in the iconic Port Hercules of the Principality of Monaco. It is the only place to admire, visit and purchase around 125 extraordinary once-off superyachts built by the world’s most respected shipyards. Each year, 40 new launches are unveiled to theworld at the show. This year’s show will commence on September 28 and run until October 1.
Over 580 exhibiting companies and partners participate in the MYS, among them the world’s leading luxury yachting companies, the trendiest superyacht builders, yacht designers, luxury manufacturers and the most important brokerage houses.
The Monaco Yacht Show is the one and only occasion in the year – and in the world – to discover the best of superyachts in the glamorous setting of Monaco. The show has the privilege of benefiting from the recognition and the support of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.
During shows in recent years, while the eyes and desires of wealthy visitors were riveted on the exhibition of 125 superyachts in Port Hercules, a quite different show was a daily event on the streets of the Principality: a magnificent parade of prestige limousines ferrying the show’s VIP clients between the MYS and the luxury hotels of the Principality.
As a logical follow-up to the presence of these automotive brands at the MYS and their express desire to be associated with the show in recent years, the organisers of the 2016 MYS will launch the Car Deck, a totally new exhibition space dedicated solely to ultrahigh- quality vehicles.
In its first year, the Car Deck will welcome prestigious brands like Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Rolls- Royce, Tesla and innovative vehicles such as the Upper Wish luxury limousine and armoured cars by the Centigon Group. Installed on Quai Rainier III in Port Hercules alongside the largest yachts in the show, the Car Deck will offer all visitors and exhibitors access to a 230 m. indoor bar-lounge, while outside prestige cars will be on display, available for purchase or a test drive in the heart of the town.
The launch of the Monaco Yacht Show's new exhibition area for prestige au obiles is an integral part of the development strategy implemented three years ago to further enhance the show's ultra-high-level offering and thereby attract a new wealthy audience, both regional and international, to the quays of Port Hercules.
On September 27, in Monaco, a new edition of the Monaco Yacht Summit will be organised by the Monaco Yacht Show. This revised format will have an exclusive audience composed of a few high-profile attendees. There will be thematic workshops run by expert speakers. The Monaco Yacht Show aims to discuss various aspects of superyachting today and will provide useful information to an audience deliberately limited to fifty guests.
