Top 6 destinations for a luxury superyacht party

By | Blog Posts, Uncategorized | No Comments

Nothing says luxury like an event hosted on board a superyacht. In recent years, these events have become more popular as people look to rub shoulders with the rich and famous in some of the world’s most stunning locations.

So you’ve started to think about partying on board a superyacht: Will it be themed? What food and drink will be served? Who’s on the guest list?

These are all important questions to ensure you get the most out of your yacht event, but arguably the most important factor in the mood and ambience of the event is where it will be.

From the U.S.A’s tropical paradise of Miami, Florida, to the classic luxury of the French Riviera, see our list of top luxury yacht party destinations below:

  1. Monaco



    Monaco is well known as a party hub on the French Riviera. The Monaco Grand Prix, along with the Cannes Film Festival further down the coast attracts celebrities and their entourages throughout the month of May. It doesn’t stop there though – the weather is beautiful for months and Monaco remains a thriving party destination well into late summer. If you’re looking for entertainment for your yacht party, the French Riviera is a great place to book some of the world’s greatest artists. Port Hercules is the place to berth in Monaco for a glamorous party atmosphere. This is a great place to look out for celebrities, and there are numerous companies nearby to help you organize an amazing yacht party.

    Where to berth: Port Hercule
    Maximum LOA 120M
    Max draft 5-30M



  2. Ibiza



    Ibiza has been synonymous with summer Mediterranean partying since shortly after it’s a first modern club “Pacha” started filling with revelers in the early ‘70s. More than forty years later the island has not lost its party credentials, although the choice – and levels of extravagance – have certainly increased.

    Ibiza is perfect for a no-holds-barred superyacht party, and for a little bit of peace and quiet, Formentera, the Balearics’ smallest sibling, is a short hop to the south.

    Where to berth: Ibiza Magna
    Maximum LOA 60M
    Max draft 10M

  3. Mykonos



    Mykonos is one of Greece’s most tourist-heavy islands and one that has become a hub for those looking for fun in the sun. In the middle of the stunning blue waters of the Aegean, this Cycladic party island has more to offer than you might expect and is flanked by smaller islands rich in history and culture.

    Where to berth: Old port
    Maximum LOA 60M
    Max draft 7M


  4. Montenegro



    Montenegro has regained its reputation as a superyacht party hotspot and has even been dubbed ‘the next Monaco for yacht charters’.

    The largest marina – Porto Montenegro – looks out over the stunning Bay of Kotor towards the Adriatic Sea and Italy, and is known for luxury accommodation and services, as well as its glamorous high-end yacht parties in late Summer. Since opening in 2009, this marina has been one of the most sought after superyacht destinations in the Mediterranean. 

    The full service marina has a range of sporting facilities, bars, clubs and even a Naval Heritage Museum, but the marina really comes alive at night when the berthed superyachts become some of the most luxurious party venues in the World.

    If you’re looking to host a superyacht party with a bit more panache and sophistication than some of the other Mediterranean hotspots, Porto Montenegro is the venue for you.

    Where to berth: Montenegro
    Maximum LOA250M
    Max Draft – 12.2M

  5. Puerto Banús



    Already a world-renowned party hotspot, Puerto Banús on the Costa del Sol in Spain was boosted in summer 2015 when superyacht owner and fashion designer Roberto Cavalli opened a new luxury club.

    It now hosts some of the wildest yacht parties on the Spanish coast, especially for British and German expats, and is a great destination for fun and frivolity on a yacht.

    Where to berth: Puerto Jose Banús
    Maximum LOA – 50M
    Max Draft – 4.5M

  6.  Miami



    Miami hosts a huge array of yacht parties and is our only destination on our list outside of the Mediterranean.

    With a reputation for attracting a broader range of clientele, this summer Miami Beach plays host to parties ranging from ticketed luxury events, through to a “Cannabis Networking event onboard a luxurious yacht” courtesy of Chronic Lifestyle Magazine.

    The laid back tropical atmosphere of Miami Beach makes for the perfect setting for a party on board a megayacht.

    Where to berth: Miami Beach Marina
    Maximium LOA – 45.7M
    Max Draft – 38.1M

    Organize your event in Athens and Mykonos.

Monaco Yacht Show 2019

By | Blog Posts, Uncategorized | No Comments

A bespoke-made show for the new generation of superyacht customers.

Today it attracts over 125 superyachts with an average length closer to 50 metres, of which around 42 are new launches making their worldwide debut. The average value of the yachts on display is now a staggering €27 million. This is a far cry from the very first edition of MYS in 1991, when there were just 32 yachts moored in Port Hercules averaging 31 metres in length.

This year’s fleet will feature larger superyachts compared with 2018. The largest luxury vessel will be 107 metres in length. 21 units will exceed 60 metres with an average size of 75m!

Full list of superyachts

It is hard to overestimate the importance and prestige of MYS as a barometer that measures the state of the large yacht industry. When business is booming, there is a tremendous vibe among the yacht brokers and builders walking the dock. But in a sector still adapting to the aspirations of younger buyers and charterers, continued prosperity is not guaranteed and there is no room for complacency. As a proactive industry player, MYS is embracing change by adopting development strategies that deliberately target the emerging superyacht clientele.

“We work to offer the most prestigious superyachting event to the new generation of customers,” confirms Gaëlle Tallarida, General Manager of MYS. “Our responsibility is to offer our visitors an entertaining and instructive plunge into the world of superyachting, while serving the interest of the industry. In other words, to encourage encounters between final clients and the best players in the market.”

Already filled to capacity each year and occupying much of Port Hercules, there is little or no opportunity for physical growth in Monaco. Instead, the show organisers are focusing on delivering the best platform for business and the most efficient solutions for exhibitors to liaise with clients. One area of improvement, for example, has been optimising the layout into thematic zones to provide more fluid circulation around the quays and tents, and allow visitors to concentrate on their own sectors of interest.

The temptation for any show aimed at end-users is to spread the net as wide as possible and be all things to all people, but MYS is taking the opposite tack by prioritising a specific visitor profile. Positive feedback from exhibitors and partners following MYS 2018 suggests this strategy is already having an impact. The slight drop in overall attendance (2% in 2018 down on 2017) reflects the drive towards lower densities around the port, which results in a more rewarding experience for prospective clients. Indeed, brokers and builders spoke of a higher number of visitors seriously intending to buy or charter.

“We want to attract people who are new to yachting as well as retain our existing client base, but at the end of the day we target HNWIs,” says one yachting executive and MYS exhibitor. “When boat shows are billed as a fun family day out, the cachet value is diluted. I think that whenever a show targets very affluent people, it should offer an experience in keeping with their lifestyles.”

VIP visit program: the Sapphire Experience
MYS is in constant contact with yacht builders, brokers and industry suppliers throughout the year in order to gather feedback and anticipate their needs and those of their customers. The Sapphire Experience, a program aimed at premium clients to enhance their show experience and help them take their first steps in the often-bewildering world of luxury yachting, was set up in 2016. The bespoke program includes a Concierge Service that coordinates private visits aboard superyachts on display, as well as a calendar of festivities during the four-day event. On the eve of show, for example, Sapphire Experience guests join a select list of industry influencers and luxury partners invited to attend the opening gala party, which includes the prestigious MYS Superyacht Awards Ceremony.

Monaco Yacht Summit
Since being introduced to the MYS agenda in 2016, the annual Monaco Yacht Summit immediately prior to the show has become a key event for clients and their advisors looking to enter or better understand the world of yachting. Attended by qualified representatives, family offices and private investors, the Summit includes a series of informative panel discussions with acknowledged experts from across the superyacht industry.

Car Deck – exhibition of classic and customised vehicles
Luxury cars go hand in hand with luxury yachting and the Car Deck exhibition of prestige and one-off automobiles, some of which are available for test drives by prospective clients, has been a big hit with VIP visitors regardless of age for the last four years. It is set alongside the Tenders & Toys area to offer a complete superyacht lifestyle environment in a single chic location.

Tenders & Toys exhibition
By providing access to secluded bays, transits between the mother ship and dry land, or simply an exhilarating high-speed ride, tenders give a younger clientele their first taste of the superyacht experience. Moreover, the stable of water toys – from inflatables to electric surfboards and mini submarines – is always high on the list of priorities for sports-minded charter clients.

New Upper Deck Lounge on two floors
The Upper Deck Lounge will offer top-notch amenities on two floors to welcome the yachting customers and enhance their visit experience of the MYS. The show’s reception and catering area will welcome all visitors in a luxurious environment furnished by the MYS top-of-the-range partners: the ground floor is dedicated to luxury exhibitors, a bar with an outdoor terrace, while the first floor will host the show restaurant and a VIP lounge with a panoramic view over Port Hercules.

New opening hours from 11am to 7.30pm
The MYS changes its opening hours and will welcome attendees, later this year, from 11am to 7.30pm (Saturday 28th September: 11am – 7pm). The goal is to offer a timetable that corresponds better to the visiting times preferred by private clients. The new schedule will also ease the relentless intensity of the show and create a more pleasant experience for visitors and exhibitors alike, while leaving more time earlier in the morning for B2B meetings, press conferences and media yacht visits. 

Less about footfall and more about providing a quality service to the growing number of international visitors intending to purchase or charter a yacht, these initiatives will help ensure that MYS maintains its global status as the superyacht show par excellence. Today more than ever before, MYS is about promoting the superyacht lifestyle to a high-end clientele through tailor-made experiences.
