Every year since 1991, the yachting industry has gathered in the Principality’s iconic Port Hercule. A world leader in the field, the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) offers a unique overview of the latest trends in yachting, from high-end luxury to sustainable development.

From 25 to 28 September 2019, 125 exceptional superyachts built by the world’s leading shipyards were presented in Monaco. Among them were around 40 brand new models, unveiled at the show for the first time anywhere.

A total of 580 exhibitors and partners took advantage of this peerless showcase, including market decision-makers, superyacht builders, designers, luxury goods manufacturers and ship brokers.

The yacht exhibition was complemented by the latest in nautical accessories – inflatable structures, electric surfboards and private submarines – a selection of premium cars, helicopters and private jets.

Sustainable development, which has become a hot topic in the superyachting world, was also on the agenda in Monaco.

Savannah, by German builder Feadship, was presented as the first hybrid superyacht, with a single engine, three generators and a megawatt of batteries.

Black Pearl, the 107-metre sailing yacht from Oceanco, uses special shaft generators which produce electricity allowing the propellers to turn while the vessel is operating under full sail.

Fuel cells are becoming increasingly popular on the market: Italian shipbuilder VSY, for example, is developing a concept based on hydrogen technology.
