Monaco Yacht Show 2022
From 28 September to 1 October, the present and future of luxury yachting on display

Performance, hi-tech innovation and increasingly green solutions, not forgetting a passion for adventure. This, in a nutshell, is what awaits visitors to the upcoming edition of the Monaco Yacht Show, taking place from 28 September to 1 October at the elegant Port Hercules in the Principality of Monaco, showcasing the very latest in yachts, superyachts, catamarans and sailing boats.

A fleet of more than 100 boats, including a number of world debuts – such as the new 62-metre luxury mega yacht CRN M/Y RIO, entirely custom-built – along with selected companies representing the height of excellence in the sector. Among these is the brand-new Cala del Forte marina (photo 7), the third on the Monaco circuit (after Hercules and Fontvieille), inaugurated this summer in nearby Ventimiglia: designed to integrate perfectly with the surrounding area in terms of architecture and sustainability, the port offers 178 berths for yachts from 6.5 to 70+ metres, and a comprehensive array of yachting services, as well as commercial premises including restaurants, cafés and a gym.

Trends at the Monaco Yacht Show indicate that the future will be increasingly full-electric.

So alongside the refurbished Dockside Area – where visitors can find the intermediaries, shipyards and designers responsible for the various yachts on show – the move of the Sailing Yacht Area to Quai l’Hirondelle (inside the port) and the extension of the Yacht Design & Innovation Hub, all of which were launched in 2021, there is inevitably a new Sustainability Hub, dedicated to companies specialising in technologies that seek to reduce the environmental impacts of yachting. The area will present vessels that are futuristic to say the least, like the 100% electric Sunreef 80 Eco and the Nemo, the new two-seater submersible from U-Boat Worx.

The show also expands to include the Adventure Area, a favourite with adrenaline junkies: a triumph of water toys, tenders, hi-tech gadgets, luxury off-road vehicles, helicopters… everything you need to explore the furthest corners of the planet.
