Not only a well known staple amongst Mediterranean cruising grounds, the Principality of Monaco itself has long been the destination of choice for super yacht owners and guests, rendering it a natural home for the unique flagship event that is the Monaco Yacht Show.

Though the stunning location has seemingly always gone hand in hand with an enviably glamorous super yacht lifestyle, the development of the Show to the level in which it currently rests has been a long process, requiring the brightest minds in yachting to work tirelessly round the clock to constantly improve, innovate and expand.


As the yachting industry itself expanded exponentially over the past 20 years, so did the Monaco Yacht Show, with the 2018 edition with 580 exhibitors hailing from 38 different countries and an unrivalled total of 121 of the world’s most impressive super yachts on display.

About Monaco Yacht Show

Gaëlle Tallarida, Managing Director Monaco Yacht Show: “The Monaco Yacht Show has a worldwide reputation for the exceptional quality of the collection of super yachts on display each year that average close to 50m overall.

About sixty of the yachts exhibited are less than two years old. We work in coordination with participating yacht brokers and shipyards in the interest, first and foremost, of the individual visitor, whether owner or future owner and to help new clients discover the world of luxury offered only by the super yacht industry.

The MYS has a duty to offer these visitors the best possible experience, with the supreme quality of the yachts on display as one of the leading criteria.”
