2021 Monaco Yacht Show: The Show goes on in the Yachting Industry

With just over two months to go before the opening of the 2021 edition, the Monaco Yacht Show is fine-tuning its brand-new format dedicated to superyacht end users. The show will be set in a safe environment, with the participation of major players from across the industry.

The organisers of the MYS have presently confirmed that 300 exhibitors will be participating. They have also announced that nearly 60 superyachts will be exhibited, including 40 brand-new launches by some of the most famous shipyards.

As announced last February, the show will be focusing on offering superyacht's end clientele a positively upmarket visiting experience.

The new Dockside Area, a part of the exhibition dedicated to companies directly linked with the construction or management of superyachts and tenders, will therefore be exclusively open to end customers (in possession of a "Discover", "Advise" and "Sapphire Experience" badges) on Wednesday 22 September, before being opened up to all visitors starting Thursday.

The Dockside Area fits in perfectly with the way Monaco's Port Hercule is divided up for the show: for several years now, each area of the exhibition has featured its own theme to better meet the visitors' expectations.

For more information on 2021 Monaco Yacht Show and to view the full list of exhibitors, click here.
