From 28 September to 1 October, at the evocative Port Hercule of the Principality of Monaco, the Monaco Yacht Show is back as the event of reference in this sector. Now at its 31st edition, it confirms its role as the largest international exhibition for the world of superyachts, with world premieres, carefully selected exhibitors like Azimut Yacht, Ferretti Group, Edmiston, Damen Yachting, IYC, Benetti and many others, and over 100 yachts over 22 meters in length, including sailboats.
This year the experience of the Monaco Yacht Show will be even more immersive, following the fil rouge of Education and Seduction, with the aim of attracting new generations of clients and yachting buffs. Prior to the event, on Tuesday 27 September the Monaco Yacht Club will host the sixth edition of the Monaco Yacht Summit, with the participation of 14 experts who will discuss timely themes like new trends, the future of yachting, yacht design and the various phases of purchase.
The two key terms of the show merge in a fine program of encounters at the Dockside Area, the Sailing Yacht Area and the Yacht Design & Innovation Hub. Here visitors can enjoy theme exhibitions on interior design, products and luxury services, as well as tenders.
A complementary area has been set aside for initiation into the superyacht lifestyle, culminating in the “Sapphire Experience,” a VIP program offered to those who are interested in owning or chartering a yacht, with the organization of guided visits to yachts, gala evenings and exclusive activities.
One of the main developments of this edition is the opening of a Sustainability Hub, covering 200 sqm in the Darse Sud, for companies specialized in technologies for reduction of environmental impact. The Hub, with the collaboration of the Water Revolution Foundation, will also be an incubator for companies providing innovative ecological solutions, and for startups working on alternative technologies for the world of yachting.
