What you need to know about Monaco Yacht Show 2019
The main annual highlight of the yachting industry, Monaco Yacht Show will take place from 25th to 28th September this year. This year’s edition will offer over 125 superyachts on display, with their average length around 50 metres and the largest vessel measuring 111 metres in LOA.
Part of a significant evolution from the first edition held in 1991, when there were only 32 yachts moored in Port Hercules averaging 31 metres in length, this year 30 units exceed 60 metres, with the value of the whole fleet presented estimated at around EUR 3 billion. What is more, 12 megaychts of over 80 metres will be present at the show, with half of them listed for sale.
Gaëlle Tallarida, General Manager of MYS, commented:
The event will be highlighted through the attendance of some of the most alluring superyacht launches of the year. Below is the list is of some of the most noteworthy debutants of the 2019 edition:
With a beam of 16.85 m and a draft of 4.4 m, she has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. This adds up to a gross tonnage of 4500 tons. She is powered by MTU engines of 4350 hp each and a cruising speed of 18 knots. TIS’s maximum range is estimated at 7000 nautical miles. The motor yacht can accommodate 18 guests in 9 cabins. The yacht was designed by Winch Design.
With a beam of 14.2 m and a draft of 4 m This adds up to a gross tonnage of 2960 tons. She is powered by engines giving her a maximum speed of 20 knots and a cruising speed of 18 knots. The motor yacht can accommodate 14 guests in 7 cabins with an interior design by Terence Disdale and an exterior design by Espen Oeino.
The largest Australia-built superyacht, Bold outdid her predecessor Silver Fast, by 8 metres. The yacht’s exteriors were developed in collaboration with Espen Oeino. Benefits of this particular bow shape include an increased interior volume due to the longer waterline length, as well as decreased resistance resulting in a higher speed. Bold reaches her top speed at 24 knots and cruises comfortably at 18 knots up to 5,000 nautical miles.
LOA: Columbus Yachts

For several consecutive years, the exhibition has been occupying the entire port of Hercule – one of the most advanced superyacht marinas in the world. Unlike the show in Cannes, it does not have any room to expand. Therefore, the organisers focus not on growth, but rather on quality: their main task is to connect the representatives of the yachting business and potential customers, to provide a convenient platform for negotiations and conclusion of transactions.
The opening hours of the show have moved an hour forward this year. MYS will be open to visitors from 11:00 to 19:30. The mornings are reserved for events for the press and business meetings, freeing up the rest of the time for private visits to yachts.
Ahoy Club is delighted to participate in the show – our office can be found on Deck 4 at the Monaco Yacht Club and we would be delighted to welcome you. To make a booking please email [email protected]
