Now in its 23rd year, the Monaco Yacht Show will again serve as the world’s most amazing showcase for spectacular yachts, brought together in one place to enchant global superyacht enthusiasts. From September 25th to 28th, over 100 of the world’s most significant luxury yachts will be on full display in Port Hercules, either available for charter or being exhibited to promote a shipyards’ expertise in new builds. WSB takes a look behind the scenes of this prestigious show.
Its official, Mega-Yacht ‘Azzam’, built by German firm Lurssen has become the largest Mega-Yacht of them all and dwarfs Roman Abramovich‘s Mega-Yacht ‘Eclipse’ by some 57 feet. The newly-crowned world’s largest Mega-Yacht took the seas at a cost of £400million (€462m) and measuring a staggering 590ft long. Azzam was officially unveiled in April, but was seen by ‘yachtspotters’ being tested on the North Sea at the weekend.
