Pour cette édition 2021, le MYS vise une expérience haut de gamme. Propriétaires, loueurs ou futurs clients de super yachts profiteront d’un programme de visite VIP.

With more than 300 exhibitors and around 60 superyachts, Monaco Yacht Show is back in full force in 2021. The show will present around 40 brand new launches unveiled by major builders such as Benetti, Feadship, Lürssen and Oceanco. “Monaco Yacht Show is without a doubt one of the key events in luxury yachting, and we are very happy to introduce some of our new models after a very satisfactory sales season, probably one of the best in the past 10 years,” says Marco Valle, managing director of the Azimut | Benetti group. This year, the annual international yacht show will be firmly focused on superyacht customers. Those who own or charter superyachts, along with future customers, will be able to enjoy a schedule of activities on board superyachts or in Monaco through the official MYS VIP visitor programme. The aim is to offer a high-end visitor experience. The new “Dockside Area”, an exhibition dedicated to companies directly connected with the building, design or management of superyachts and tenders, will be exclusively accessible to end customers (Discover”, “Advise” and “Sapphire Experience” badges) on 22 September, before opening up to all visitors the following day.

Themed exhibitions
Visitors will be able to see two new exhibitions this year. The first, on Quai l’Hirondelle, is dedicated to sailboats, which will be moored opposite the stands of their respective shipyards, designers and specialist equipment manufacturers. In addition to the show’s historic Designer Gallery, MYS will feature a Yacht Design & Innovation Hub, a new presentation space for yacht design projects where visitors will be able to meet with designers. There is also an exhibition dedicated to luxury tenders and water toys (Tender & Toys, Quai Antoine I), luxury vehicles (Car Deck, Quai Antoine I), luxury products (Parvis Piscine tent), nautical equipment manufacturers and the latest tech releases (Darse Sud and Quai Albert I).

The 2021 edition will be “Covid-safe”!
For the safety of visitors and staff, MYS will apply an anti-Covid health protocol throughout the entire show, from the first day of set-up to the last day of take-down. “We are following the evolution of the pandemic very closely, along with the health restrictions in place in each of our visitors’home countries. As organisers of the show, our responsibility is to ensue safe and healthy conditions for each visitor, exhibitor, service provider and member of staff,” states Gaëlle Tallarida, the show’s general manager.

22 to 25 September

Only Watch at Monaco Yacht Show

The Only Watch biennial will begin its world tour on 22 September at the Monaco Yacht Show, before ending on 6 November under the hammer of the auctioneer at Christie’s in Geneva, where 50 unique timepieces from the world’s leading watchmaking brands will be auctioned. Since 2005, Only Watch has raised €70 million to fund medical research into muscular dystrophy. Everyone still remembers the record-breaking sale of the 2019 auction, in which Patek Philippe’s Grandemaster Chime sold for €28 million, becoming the most expensive watch in history!
