Set in the iconic Port Hercules in the principality of Monaco, the Monaco Yacht Show represents the pinnacle of luxury, showcasing around 600 exhibiting companies and partners.
Each year, superyacht industry proponents, builders, brands, brokers, owners, prospective owners, charter agents, their clients and the media flock to Monaco to appreciate the spectacle, pageantry and advanced engineering of these majestic vessels.
