Sensational superyachts, exciting new builds and leaders from all over the industry: all of these can be found at the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show! Held at the only deep-water port in Monaco, Port Hercules, this extraordinary annual event is anticipated worldwide, with thousands of visitors and hundreds of companies flocking to the tiny European city-state just to participate in the exhibition or gaze in wonder. As trusted suppliers of sailing products in Malta, the team at Camilleri Marine were excited and proud to attend this year’s show. Here’s why it should be in your calendar next year.
The Iconic Port Hercules
Luxurious, impressive and majestic, Port Hercules has been in use since ancient times, when it was used for trading purposes by the Romans and Greeks. It is large enough to accommodate up to 700 vessels, and underwent renovation in 2011 for its old fixed piers.
Nowadays, Port Hercules is host to a large number of high-end events and entertainment, including live concerts and amusement parks, as well as various boating challenges, exhibitions and sailing regattas.
The Monaco Yacht Show: A Brief Background
It was French entrepreneur Maurice Cohen who founded the Monaco Yacht Show in 1991, together with the support and recognition from Prince Albert II of Monaco. Since then, it has been recognised as the ultimate showcase for industry influencers, featuring superyachts built by respected shipyards across the globe. Companies participate to boost their business, strengthen their brand awareness and display their products and services. Areas for catering and relaxation are open to guests, under luxurious exhibition tents away from the hustle and bustle of Port Hercules.
The Monaco Yacht Summit
Held every year, the Monaco Yacht Summit takes place 24 hours before the start of the show itself, featuring 5 presentations to educate the audience on critical issues regarding topics like Design, Purchase, Charter, Management and Crew.
Guests are also treated to a taste of the superyacht lifestyle with a live-piano bar, restaurants, several high-end companies and a business centre.
