More than 100 superyachts, with more than 40 making their worldwide debut, will line the docks of Monte Carlo from September 21st to 24th. It is they that set the tone for what is the most prestigious yacht show in the world. Their very presence inside Port Hercules draws in Royalty and millionaire yacht owners alike.
This is one of the most glamourous and high net worth events in the Principality of Monaco, the greatest superyachts, some of the best luxury brands. The result is the Monaco Yacht Show an internationally famous and glitteringly gorgeous event on the Cote d’Azur that bursts with the flavourings of wealth, health and happiness.

Packed to the gunwales so that she resembles a floating art gallery the new 39 metre Snowbird is a stunning example of how different owners use their superyachts.
If it is the majesty of large sailing yachts that has what it takes to get your blood running try the award winning 50 metre Zefira the most magnificent of fast cruising yachts that is the largest Dubois design to date without a flybridge. She won Sailing Yacht of the Year at the World Superyacht
