Monaco 2019

Do you know how long the Monaco Yacht Show has
been operating for?

28 Years!!

A bit of history.....

The Monaco Yacht Show was founded in 1991 and organized by the French entrepreneur Maurice Cohen (who knew?). The event grew to host 65 yachts in 2002 and attracted nearly 15,000 visitors. In 2005, IIR (the Company that acquired the rights to the show in 1994) was acquired by the British event organizer Informa for $1.4 billion. By 2016, the event had more than doubled its 2002 attendance numbers and increased the number of yachts in Port Hercules to 125. That same year, the Monaco Yacht Show debuted an exhibition space for luxury automobiles called Car Deck. The Car Deck exhibition has included automobiles from Aston Martin, Bentley, Hemmels, Lamborghini, McLaren, and Mercedes-Benz. 
In 2017, there was an estimated €4.5 billion value in yachts in Monaco during the event. 

And now back to today....

So what is the news? Well, this year there are a few debut appearances that might be of interest. For example:
M/Y Octopus has come up for sale and the new build M/Y Syzygy 818 direct from the yard (pronounced sizije and referring to an astronomic phenomenon)

M/Y Bold the new battleship grey look from Silver Yachts out of Perth, Australia. 
The new 111m M/Y Tis and the new 95m M/Y Madsummer both from Lurssen to name just a few.

M/Y 126M  Effective Placements did an exceptional job. Linda assisted me throughout the process and she was more than willing to walk the extra mile in assisting me. She has a lot of experience in this field and that is clear throughout the process.
