Monaco Yacht Show '21 Will Feature Dedicated Sailing Yacht Section
With under three weeks to go until the industry reconvenes around the docks of Port Hercules for the world’s most prestigious celebration of superyachting, the Monaco Yacht Show has released more details on what to expect from this year’s ‘revamped’ event. This year, visitors to the show will be able to enjoy a dedicated sailing yacht area for the first time, showcasing a range of luxury sailing yachts from expert builders around the world.
Located at Quai l’Hirondelle, the Monaco Yacht Show’s new sailing yacht area will be very much incorporated within the larger layout of the show. This is expected to encourage a crossover in interest between sailing and motor yacht enthusiasts, giving world-famous sailing yacht builders a chance to showcase their cutting-edge technology and premium standard of comfort to a market that may have otherwise been closed to them.
Renowned sailing yacht experts such as McConaghy Boats, Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design, Wally, Southern Wind and Baltic Yachts (to name but a few) will be on-site at the show’s new sailing yacht area to answer any sailing-related questions or interest from prospective clients. Amongst the show-stopping sailing yachts expected to exhibit at the show are Wally’s new WHY200, Malcolm McKeon’s award-winning Ribelle and Morgana, Southern Wind’s spectacular performance cruiser.
The Monaco Yacht Show’s new sailing yacht area is just one of a number of subtle revamps in line with the show’s pledge to target the most pressing marketing challenges facing the superyacht industry. After a year-long hiatus, in which the show organisers took the opportunity to conduct an ‘in-depth research initiative’ with leading industry partners, visitors and exhibitors alike can expect to attend a 2021 event that is more in tune with the social, economic and environmental changes in the luxury sector than ever before.
