The Monaco Yacht show is an annual event that boat aficionados look forward to annually. The lineup of yachts in different shapes and sizes have thrilled attendees year-on-year.
Held this year from September 25 to 28 at Port Hercules, the Monaco Yacht Show is a place for buyers, aspiring buyers and those who want to belong to see, feel and experience new yachts.
As it is the custom annually, the event showcases not only the latest, biggest and most luxurious yachts but the speedy and contemporary ones to acquire. Below are some of the boats seen at the show:
1. Abeking & Rasmussen Excellence
The 262 feet boat was manufactured Abeking & Rasmussen shipyard whose headquarter is in Germany. The yacht is an excellent piece, whose bold lines are interesting. The interior design was put together by London-based Winch Design. It comes with a pool, hot tub and massive beach club.
2. Amels Aurora Borealis
Delivered in July, the 67 meters Amels Aurora Borealis makes its world debut in Monaco. The superyacht gives the nod to the grand ocean liners of the last century, yet it comes with that latest sensation. It features an exterior designed by Tim Heywood and an interior by Winch. It has seven staterooms for 14 guests plus cabins for 15 crew and the captain.
3. Benetti Metis
UK-based Bannenberg & Rowell conceived the interiors of the five-deck, 207-foot Metis from Italian yard Benetti in conjunction with Birgit Otte Interior Atelier. Giorgio M. Cassetta created the flowing exteriors. The yachts highlights include an asymmetrical layout, helipad, a 1,700-plus-square-foot owner’s apartment and custom fly deck gym.
4. Heesen Yachts Vida
Dutch builder Heesen delivered this 55-meter yacht after many sea trials that clocked the Van Oossanen Naval Architects–designed, fast-displacement-hull boat at a top speed of 16.4 knots. Inside, there is a backlit ivory onyx arch that welcomes guests through the aft entrance and acts as a 42-bottle wine cellar.
5. Tankoa Bintador
If you are a lover of Italian boatbuilder Tankoa’s Vertige, you will love Bintador. The second hull of Tankoa’s 164-foot S501 hybrid superyacht is kitted out with a main-deck master suite, five staterooms, a main-deck galley and a helipad. Inside, Francesco Paszkowski joined forces with Magherita Casprini to create the light and modern interior bedazzled with natural materials. And its gym and beach club are hard to beat.
6. Extra 130 Alloy L.A.U.L
The 130-foot superyacht L.A.U.L. is the first Extra 130 Alloy from the yard. Designed for entertaining, the boat features an upper deck with a dining area, bar, sun pads, hot tub and more. It accommodates ten guests in five cabins and fits an 18-foot tender and a personal watercraft in its garage.
7. Lürssen Madsummer
This yacht is the latest delivery from German shipyard Lürssen. Madsummer. UK-based Harrison Eidsgaard gave the superyacht its lovely exterior proportions and large 46-foot beam, which in turn provided designer Laura Sessa the space she needed for a roomy and contemporary interior. The large beach club and spa with terrace on the lower deck will no doubt be a show favourite, while all will also appreciate the helipad for ease of access.
8. Azimut Grande S10
This yacht debuted first in Cannes just before the Monaco Yacht Show. Azimut’s Grande S10 features interiors by Azimut and Francesco Guida; and an exterior design by Alberto Mancini. The 94-foot yacht can accommodate eight guests and three to four crew in four staterooms and two crew cabins.
9. Arcadia Yachts Sherpa XL
Italy’s Arcadia Yachts brought the 79-foot, solar-panelled Sherpa XL, which may be used either as a primary yacht or as a shadow boat to carry all the fun gear, to Monaco. Milan-based Hot Lab penned both exterior and interior, including a tender garage to free up deck space. Two Volvo Penta IPS 1050 engines create a 20-knot top speed, and solar energy generates 3 kW for powering up onboard basics.
10. 48 Wallytender
The 48 Wallytender is the first vessel to come out of the Wally/Ferretti Group partnership and recent full acquisition. Standard Wally fold-down bulwark sections maximize deck space to make way for dining and sunning area, plus the galley and swim platform. The Volvo Penta IPS 650 engines give this yacht a top speed of 38 knots.
11. Baltic Yachts 112 Liara
Liara, the 112-foot is a sleek sailing yacht from Finnish builder Baltic Yachts. The Malcolm McKeon–designed sloop features a light interior by Adam Lay. Conceived as an easy-to-manage family cruiser capable of quickly crossing oceans, Liara is also race-ready for events such as the St. Barths Bucket and the Caribbean 600.
12. Damen Yacht Support Joy Rider
Damen’s first 147-foot YS 4508 model, Joy Rider, offers standout features such as a severe deck crane, making way on the aft deck for tenders and toys. Whether for superyacht support or stand-alone yachting, the boat includes lounging space on the sundeck, a large saloon, cabins for six guests and seven crew, a helipad and smooth cruising.
