The world’s superyacht aficionados and industry ‘big-wigs’ will turn their attention to the Monaco Yacht Show when it returns to Port Hercules for its 28th edition in September 2018.

Long considered to be the flagship event of the international yachting calendar, the Monaco Yacht Show will this year welcome a world-class fleet of 125 magnificent superyachts to its unique and world-famous setting.
Held at the iconic Port Hercules in the principality of Monaco, the four-day event will, as always, represent the pinnacle of luxury and provide the ultimate showcase for industry brokers, shipyards, designers and business influencers.
Lining up alongside the superyachts will be 580 exhibitors, ranging from the finest superyacht builders, award-winning yacht designers, luxury suppliers and influential brokerage houses to the most desirable tenders and water toys, submarines, prestige cars, helicopters and private jet manufacturers.
An important change at the upcoming show is a new layout, which takes advantage of the restructured Quai des Etats Unis. Along the jetty, yacht designers, shipyards and brokerage houses will exhibit alongside the yachts they represent, improving the visitor experience for the show’s private clientele.
Global marine suppliers will now exhibit their products and services in the Darse Sud tent and on Quai Albert 1er, while the Parvis Piscine will be dedicated to luxury manufacturers and top-of-the-range service suppliers.
The developments are in response to the efforts by the organisers to future-proof the show’s success. As usual, the event will span over four days with more than 30,000 visitors anticipated to walk through its doors.

The 90m/295ft superyacht DAR picked up awards for the finest new superyacht and the best exterior design at the Monaco Yacht Show inaugural gala event.
Oceanco’s new 90m motoryacht, DAR originally known as Y717 —with its modern revolutionary exterior styling by DeBasto Design and sophisticated interior design by Nuvolari Lenard— is unlike any other superyacht afloat today. Her groundbreaking design and technological advances bear the unmistakable DNA of an Oceanco: she reflects the latest advances in glass technology and she is the first yacht in the Netherlands to be given the official Lloyd’s Register Integrated Bridge System (IBS) notation and designation.
