By Ben Roberts

Superyachts.com takes a rounded look at newly launched yachts available for sale, superyacht toys, prestigious events and new developments around Port Hercule to offer visitors a walkthrough of the newly laid out 25th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show.

A New Layout
Earlier this year, the Monaco Yacht Show released an updated layout which is allowing for an evolutionary leap forward for the world revered show. This new layout has moved a few elements within the show, yet has allowed for a far more accessible avenue to yachts and the industry experts behind them thanks to extended berths and larger exhibition tents.

One of the main benefits of the new scheme will extend the Quai Rainier III dock by the old Yacht Club, offering three berths for superyachts of over 100 metres long. This will take the afloat exhibition capacity to 121 superyachts. For a closer look at the exact details surrounding the new layout, click here.

A Place To Relax and Unwind
The Upper Deck Lounge was unveiled in 2012, and since then has become a focal area for business opportunities to arise and a cold glass of champagne to be enjoyed, surrounded by high-end art, stylish interiors from the likes of Sabrina Monte-Carlo, fast cars and the finest jewellery in the world.

However, business is not always the name of the game. The Captain and Crew lounge is returning for the second year in a row, offering yacht crews with a safe haven to relax and enjoy the Monaco Yacht Show from the comfort of a two-storey venue by the Yacht Club de Monaco on Quai Louis II.

On the first floor, the restaurant will offer breakfast and lunch (reserved to all yacht captains and only the crews of the superyachts exhibited inside Port Hercules) from 8:30am to 2:30pm, and then will open its doors to all worldwide crews with free refreshments until 7pm.

On the second floor, guests can enjoy chilling out with their peers, listening to music, comfortably laid back in the modern-designed sofas supplied by the new partner MC Interieur. Refreshments and fine wines will be offered by WorldWine Services, partner for their second year as well as a returning Daniele de Winter who will offer massages and therapies.

If a massage isn’t for you, then a whole series of immersive games are available on demand. A new partner in 2015, FunAir is also getting onboard the C&C Lounge to present how much fun the yacht owner and his guests can have with its wide range of thrilling inflatable toys for yachts.
