The Monaco Yacht Show is the world’s greatest festival of superyachting, and the 2015 event, which runs from September 23 to 26, is bigger and better than ever, with its ever-growing dock areas full of startling new yachts. There’ll be over 120 yachts on show, along with 500 exhibitors from over 40 countries. And, as ever, there will be a host of designers, brokerage houses, charter companies, tender manufacturers, and luxury service companies from across the globe.

All the world’s major superyacht builders will be in attendance, showcasing the finest superyachts on the water. Lürssen will be showing its 66-metre Ester II (SuperYacht World’s latest cover star), while Feadship is bringing the 44-metre Moon Sand and the 46-metre Kiss. Coming all the way from the Hanseatic Marine in Australia is Silver Fast, an all-aluminium 77-metre. Heesen, Amels, Royal Huisman, Sunrise Yachts, Southern Wind Shipyard, Baltic Yachts, Claasen, CRN, Tankoa, Benetti, Baglietto, Mondo Marine, Sanlorenzo and Mangusta will all be represented with new yachts. Francois Fiat’s 77-metre Yersin will catch the eye – a go-anywhere explorer from Piriou that can cruise through ice 40cm thick. There’ll be some great new concepts from the likes of Perini Navi and Icon Yachts.

The world’s best brokerage and charter houses will be at the show, offering a wide selection of yachts for sale, either within the show or anchored. Burgess, Camper & Nicholsons International, Edmiston, Fraser Yachts, Moran Yacht & Ship, Ocean Independence, YPI, Northrop & Johnson and Y.CO are among the companies who will be at the show in force.

We’ll be bringing you more details of the latest launches, and all the news and events in the run-up to this key event in the superyacht calendar. And we’ll be on the ground at the show in September brining you live news as it happens from the greatest show on earth.
