In Pictures: The Monaco Yacht Show

Yacht spotting at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show.

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.

Some exciting sights at the show included the Wider 150, Evo 43, Columbus' 40M Sport Hybrid and mega-yacht Ulysses, with debuts from Amels, Aston Martin and Otam.

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.

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 Wider 150’s helm is certainly forward-thinking. That captain’s chair can be electrically stowed underneath the console.

Just outside the Monaco harbor were even more mega-yachts. The one in middle with the gray-ish hull is Ulysses.

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.

What do you make of this boat? She was “docked” outside the world-famous Hermitage Hotel.

Giant sunpads aft on the Dynamiq’s flybridge were a hit.
