Your first glimpse of Monaco harbour by boat, with its hundreds of gleaming yachts all shimmering in the sunlight, will remain etched in your memory for a lifetime. It may be the world’s second-smallest nation, but in the world of charter and private yachting, Monaco is larger than life. Well- known for being home to some of the largest and most renowned superyachts in the world, this beguiling small country is also home to the rich and famous, where heads of state and celebrities alike can be seen stepping on and off the luxury yachts lining the marina. Nestled into the French Mediterranean coastline, Monaco is a place to eat, drink, embrace the glamourous lifestyle and watch the spectacle of the glitterati with a cocktail in hand.
The thrill of the Formula One racing at the Monaco Grand Prix is a true lifetime experience when seen, heard and felt from the luxury and privacy of the deck of your superyacht. Considered the unofficial start of the yachting season, this prestigious sporting event is also considered the pinnacle of the motor racing season – the one all drivers dream of triumphing at. While the crowds line the streets and jostle for the best viewpoint of the hairpin turns along Monaco’s winding streets, charter yachts are without a doubt the best seats in the house. While visitors ashore are packing into overflowing hotels and restaurants, lucky charterers enjoy bird’s-eye views of the action, relaxing in private salons with personal chefs before celebrating at champagne-soaked race day parties.
