Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix

Chartering at the Monaco Grand Prix

The Monaco Grand Prix is the most famous and glamorous event of the Formula 1 calendar. It runs over four days, with qualifying from Thursday with the big race day on Sunday. Regardless of the day, for those watching it from onboard a superyacht, the experience is unmatchable and truly one of a kind.

If you are not familiar with the Grand Prix, the Monaco F1 GP is considered the most difficult and slowest circuit in Formula 1, but it ranks high in style and sophistication.

Chartering a yacht during the MGP allows you to not only have possibly the best-watching spot in the whole of Monaco but also the most glamorous accommodation, right in the centre of the event’s elite social scene.


A brief history of the Monaco Grand Prix

Monaco’s first Grand Prix began in 1929, as a car enthusiast rally, organised at the time by Automobile Club of Monaco and Antony Noghes. Naturally, the only way the race could be held was in the narrow streets of Monaco, which, with their tight corner and elevation changes make it the toughest track to race on in Formula One.

Due to World War II, the races had to be cancelled from 1938 but it began again in 1955 as part of the Formula One World Championships. As a matter of fact, one of the race’s earliest winners, Graham Hill, also known as Mr. Monaco won the race five fives back in the 1960s! The only person to break Mr. Hill’s record was Brazilian driver, Ayrton Senna, who has had an impressive six wins between 1989 and 1993.

The most exclusive way to enjoy the MGP

Monaco Grand Prix today is an iconic event around the world, with celebrities making their way down to the Principality every year to join what it is described as ‘the greatest party venue on Earth’; and superyachts are surely the hotspots of it all.

Whether you choose to secure a berth in the famous Port Hercules, for an up-close view of all the action and a taste of the raging energy that’s in the air. Or whether you decide to anchor off by the Monaco coast, we can agree there is no better way to experience this event other than on the deck of an Ahoy Club superyacht. And the choice for vessels is impressive during this time of the year.

For client hosting, sophisticated events or simply for some fun times with the family and friends, a Monaco Grand Prix charter is a terrific opportunity to join in in a historic, extraordinary racing competition.

Often referred to as the biggest event in racing, the Monaco Grand Prix attracts a number of well-known faces and Hollywood stars. Whilst the competition is tough on the track, the level of style and glamour of the track might be even higher, but one thing is for sure, chartering a superyacht is the ultimate Monaco GP experience.
