Your Monaco Yacht Show 2017 Charter

The Mediterranean charter season has now arrived and lucky charterers are faced with an array of summer destinations and yacht shows. A yacht charter on the French Riviera is one of the most popular choices, particularly at the end of September when the Principality of Monaco hosts the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS). The annual show is the highlight of the French Riviera’s yachting programme and, although it may seem too early to think about September, those interested in attending the MYS should take action now to be guaranteed an experience worthy of the event.

The Monaco Yacht Show takes place from 27th - 30th September 2017 and celebrates the finest superyachts and luxury goods at Monaco’s Port Hercules. The exclusive event promises four days of high-end maritime exhibitions, including more than 125 extraordinary one-off superyachts, built by the world’s most respected shipyards. The MYS covers an incredible 9,000 square metres of exhibition space and the participating yachts range from 25 to 100 metres long, including a number of ultra-exclusive mega yachts. The whole exhibition area is served by transportation links between the various quays. Last year, a golf cart service introduced new stops and extended service hours to support the complimentary bus and boat shuttles.

Each year, 40 new launches are unveiled at Port Hercules and the 27th edition of the show will be no different. Tenders and water toys are showcased at the two exhibition areas: Monte Carlo Tender Show and the Water Toy Show. Almost 600 leaders of the yachting industry choose to display their innovative products at this show.

The MYS attracts yachting professionals from top brokerages, charter agencies and shipbuilders who are on hand to advise clients hoping to make a purchase. There is also a programme of exhibitions, workshops and conferences where leading figures in the industry can meet with like-minded individuals. Networking usually continues as the sun sets and attendees flock to high-profile social events at Monaco’s vast range of world-class restaurants and bars.

The event attracted around 34,000 visitors from around the world last year and continues to grow year on year. The show not only attracts yacht enthusiasts, but also brings together fans of the luxury lifestyle, with exhibitors from the peripheral luxury sectors showcasing everything from watches to helicopters. The popular ‘Car Deck’ area will return to Quai Antoine Ier in Port Hercules. Around 15 prestige car manufacturers will be on display, such as Lamborghini and Aston Martin, and some models will be available for purchase and test drives. If you are already on a French Riviera charter, the MYS is an essential stop.

Monaco provides a suitably upscale backdrop to the show and it is an unmissable event for anyone interested in yachts and luxury products. Tickets are available online or on site during the event.
