Monaco Yacht Show – Trends and What’s Hot

Under gorgeous sunny skies, the Monaco Yacht Show unveiled 100 Super Yachts, stunning tenders and 500 exhibitors on Wednesday the 21st. There was no shortage of hot tubs, entertainment rooms, fancy navigation gear, and water toys.  The crowd seemed a bit thicker and more upbeat this year than last, but we’ll wait for the official statistics.

We saw fewer sailing yachts than in past years (one Swan, one Perini-Navi, one Wally, and Hemisphere, the world’s largest catamaran), but a greater emphasis on Green Yachting (go figure).  We will detail some of the individual yachts we saw in upcoming posts, but show favorites included Yogi, Excellence III, and Cakewalk – measuring in at 85 meters.  More updates to come, but we wanted to at least share some images with you for weekend dreaming!
