Monaco Yacht Show Recap

The Monaco Yacht show was glorious as always – weather, yachts, people, exhibits.  There’s really nothing like it.

We scoured the show for 3 days for all the boat news. Clearly, the boat of the show was the Oceanco “Alpha Nero”, with its infinite swimming pool, enormous decks and sheer size.  There was a constant jam of interested show goers in front of the yacht, trying to scam their way into a visit.

We look primarily for Charter Yachts, and of course there were some amazing ones on display. Our favorites were:

M/Y Sensation  (Sensation Yachts) – we finally got to see this beautiful New Zealand Yacht, with light, warm interior, sleek hull and peppy speed. It’s been on the market for a while but has a great new captain who’s putting together a world-class charter crew.

M/Y The Snapper (Sunseeker) – a Sunseeker 82 Yacht with modern but very tastefully done interior

M/Y Lady Michelle (Trinity) – classic interior, nice cruising speed, elegant. 49 Meters, 5 Cabins.

M/Y Starship (Van Mill). A classic 44 meter superyacht with all the amenities. Excellent finishings, top quality materials.

More updates from the show coming soon, as we sort through all of our compiled information!
