The Monaco Yacht Show itself has evolved almost beyond recognition from the first edition, back in 1991, when it featured just 32 yachts of an average of 31 metres. Fast forward to 2019 and the largest vessel on display is 107 metres, and the average yacht now 49.5 metres, and every available dock space has been taken by over 125 yachts including 42 that are making their worldwide debut.
There is little room for physical expansion, with the show encompassing all of the glittering waterside of Port Hercules. Instead, visitor satisfaction has been the focus of improvement, with recent years seeing the introduction of different themed zones and a better flow through the show. 2019 sees some further changes set to enhance the experience of serious buyers and charter clients. The main difference will be to opening times, with the show now opening from 11am – 7.30 pm (aside from the Saturday which has a 7pm finish), which is designed to give more flexible visiting times for private clients and B2B meetings, and create a more relaxed atmosphere at the show. With over 125 superyachts, 42,000sq meters of exhibition space and 580 exhibitors, visitors are sure to be glad of these extra hours.
IYC has a long relationship with Monaco, with a dedicated Monaco office and team, and will have a strong presence at the show, including the IYC stand – JS19 – on Appontement Jules Soccal.
