The Monaco Yacht Show is gearing up to again bring together the captains of industry, the savvy owners and the highest-net-worth clientele for four days of intensive meetings and viewings.
With 500 of the leading superyacht companies on the stands, the show will this year take place from September 19th-22nd.
The finest shipyards, the top yacht designers, the main broker agencies and the best superyacht equipment suppliers will all be in Port Hercules in Monaco o exhibit their most innovative products and luxury services or their future projects of superyachts.
Organisers predict another busy year, with new initiatives to spark new deals.
Gaëlle Tallarida, managing director of the event, commented: “We are truly aware the MYS has become an event that many yacht companies can’t afford to miss out.
“Our role is to offer the best working and exhibiting conditions to all participants, so that they only have to focus on their main goal when attending the event: making business.
“It’s a one-year organisation to deliver such a worldwide event; we have set up collaborations with top-quality service suppliers to fulfil the demanding expectations of the exhibitors and visitors.
“They must feel at the right place with the right people to develop their business.”
In coordination with the MYS organisers, the brokers and shipyards will unveil their most recent and spectacular superyachts, aiming at presenting their best offering to convince new buyers.
As the clients are less pressured to buy, and feel they have more time to compare to get the right yacht at the right price, it’s definitely the time to buy, said Tallarida.
“Wealthy people are still there, and there is still a very good market for those who want to have a boat quickly,” he added.
“Smart clients with experience know that even with a custom build they have to wait three or four years, so this is a good moment to bite.
“Just like in a real estate market, if you have cash, you should be buying now.”
