The Meyer Group from Papenburg, in the district of Emsland, Lower Saxony, Germany is exhibiting at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show.
At the stand (position JL6, directly at the port entrance), Meyer Yachts demonstrated what the brand stands for: sustainable and technologically advanced mega yachts starting from 100 metres in length.
Bernard Meyer comments on the commitment, saying: “Since 1795, we have built more than 700 ships in Papenburg alone.
“In the yacht segment, we have already received very positive feedback after the launch of our brand because we can realise almost limitless ideas and ship sizes – even the seemingly craziest ones.
“We currently see that the demand for megayachts is increasing and there is room for another shipyard in this segment. A presence at the Monaco Yacht Show is, therefore, a logical response for us.”
Large and complex ships are part of the Meyer Group’s core competence. Ships of up to 350 metres are routinely built in the building halls at Papenburg.
“Mega yachts are a new market segment that we can serve at our shipyards. At Meyer, it is always our ambition to position ourselves at the top – in terms of environmental protection as well as now in terms of yacht size,” says Managing Director Thomas Weigend.
After Meyer Yachts presented the exterior of the 150-metre ONE 50 last year, the first interior views will now be released at the Monaco Yacht Show 2022.
Among other features, the ONE 50 has a spa area on two levels, a cinema with an adjacent billiard saloon, an NFT gallery and an owner’s suite with private pool. At 150 metres long and 20 metres wide, the ONE 50 has an enormous 15,000 gross tonnage.
To make the yacht as sustainable as possible, fuel cells and battery systems are installed in the engine room. With an electrical output of 25,000 kilowatts, the ONE 50 will reach a top speed of 23 knots.
At Monaco’s Port Hercules, Meyer Yachts will debut an even larger concept that underscores the Meyer Group’s ambition and capacity.
“We are experts in building special ships and have proven that many times, therefore megayachts have the potential to become the next Meyer success story.
“Now we are working on making megayachts even bigger and, above all, greener. I cordially invite all owners, their representatives, brokers and designers to our stand to discuss upcoming projects,” says Bernard Meyer.
