Yachting flew out to Monaco to spend time at Port Hercule for the Monaco Yacht Show, which ran from September 28 to October 1.
The show averages 125 superyachts on display with the LOA averaging 150 feet, the Monaco Yacht Show website states. On average 40 yachts make their world premiere in Monaco annually, and we were there for some of them.
The Monaco Yacht Show began in 1991 with a mere 32 yachts in attendance; 26 years later the show is a world-wide stage for the yachting community.
It’s hard to beat this superyacht lineup.
The Wider 150 (and her tender the Wider 32) was mobbed with attention the throughout the Monaco Yacht Show.
This eye-catching beach club is a big reason the Wider was very busy at the Monaco Yacht Show.
The Wider team doesn’t has an eye for color. Italian flair in spades.
The hot tub atop the Wider 150.
The Wider 150’s helm is certainly forward-thinking. That captain’s chair can be electrically stowed underneath the console.

Luxury apartments perched in the hills overlook the scene at the Monaco Yacht Show.
Just outside the Monaco harbor were even more mega-yachts. The one in middle with the gray-ish hull is Ulysses.
This Triton sub obviously caught all sorts of glances at the Monaco Yacht Show.
The Monaco harbor was filled with tender traffic. Very pretty tender traffic.
According to the Monaco Yacht Show website, 125 superyachts were on display at the show.
**The Silver Arrow 460 Granturismo designed in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz made her world premiere. **
Port Hercule was stuffed to the gills with the most luxurious yachts in the world.
This shot helps to show the full scope of how impressive the Monaco Yacht Show really is.
It’s hard to beat Monaco for scenery.
They put foils on everything else, why not a boat?

What? You thought we’d go to Monaco and not give you a shot of a sports car? Impossible.
To say the harbor in Monaco was bustling would be an understatement.
The windows in the Mangusta Oceano 42’s salon were huge and offer stellar views.

There’s no way the captain on the Mangusta could be displeased with this.
How’s that for helm electronics?
A hot tub aboard a superyacht in Monaco. Not too shabby.
What do you make of this boat? She was “docked” outside the world-famous Hermitage Hotel.
Get in the chopper!
How does your tender stack up to this Boesch?
This is Galaxy of Happiness by Latitude Yachts. Ever seen anything quite like her?
The Evo 43 wasn’t the biggest boat at the show but she still caught lots of attention.
The Dynamiq 39m Jetsetter had a super-impressive flybridge.
Giant sunpads aft on the Dynamiq’s flybridge were a hit.

Winter is coming. Might be a good time to take this 121-foot Perini Navi somewhere warm.
Launched in 1927, Creole has a rich history (she was once thought to be haunted) and now belongs to the Gucci family.
Ulysses, the largest yacht at the show, was a dominant presence.
The 85-foot Wally Casa is one cool cat. We caught her docked in Monaco.
