Top Yachts to See at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show

Posted September 21 2016


MYSThe Monaco Yacht Show is here and is viewed as one of the year’s most highly anticipated, exclusive trade show events in Yachting. Known for attracting some of the most powerful and wealthy people in the world, along with the top vessels from all over the globe, this year’s show promises to be a showstopper. From the 28th of September to the 1st of October, the Yachting industry will gather at Port Hercules.

It’s no secret that one of the highlights of any boat show is to see some of the mega-yachts up close and personal. While you may not be able to go onboard, you can still appreciate how amazing some of these vessels are in both size and amenities. So if you are attending the show here are the top yachts to see! It should be noted that it is common for yachts to change plans at the last minute, so there is a possibility that some of these vessels may decide not to attend the boat show.
