Last week, Baroque Yachts had the privilege of attending the biggest yachting event of the season, the 26th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show. We look back at some of the highlights
No yacht show has quite the impact and history as the Monaco Yacht Show, and this year’s event was no exception. Add to that the magnificent location – the principality of Monaco – where the weather and the offerings on display were no disappointment, and this was an event to remember.
Every year the show gets bigger and better, and the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show did not disappoint. Starting off on 27 September with the Monaco Yacht Show Gala where several awards were given out for excellence, and continuing with a selection of fabulous events and experiences, the show was bigger and better than ever. There were more than 120 super yachts on display, and we have already featured some of our highlights, including offerings from Feadship and Benetti as well as a selection of extraordinary mega yachts for charter.
Highlights of the show were the winning super yachts, Genesi, Galactica Supernova and Sybaris, who sailed off with the Monaco Yacht Show Awards at the Gala Dinner – and when we took a look at these exquisite vessels, we understood why they were chosen as the best of the best.
Being in the hub of the action was an exciting experience, and Baroque Yachts met up with various leaders in the sailing field, as well as yacht owners and aficionados. It is certainly a very different experience being at the show to watching from the sidelines, and Baroque Yachts plans to attend every year to bring breaking news about the latest super yachts and their toys to our very attentive audience.
We gained so much insight into what’s happening in this ever-evolving world, found out about the latest news regarding yacht charter, new yachts on the scene making their global debuts and so much more. It was extremely exciting to find out about new concepts from leading shipyards such as Oceanco and Feadship, to learn all about the new technology being used to build yachts and on the yachts themselves.
Some of the latest tech was quite mind-boggling: there’s Augmented Reality Edge in the Feadship Future Concept, exceptional innovation in Benetti’s Now concept yachts, an opportunity to see Heesen Yachts’ latest innovations in Virtual Reality – and let’s not forget the parties – these were plentiful, enabling us to get to know everybody in the yacht world in a more relaxed environment.
We explored some of the largest and most luxurious yachts in the world, and partied on some of them, too. We met yacht builders and yacht designers, yacht owners and yacht fans, and everybody else in the yacht world. We have made excellent new contacts, to ensure that we can bring you up-to-date news and views from the world of yachting going forward.
Take a look back at what we posted last week on social media to get an insight into everything that was happening at the 2016 The Monaco Yacht Show.
