Monaco show adds slips in 2014

As this year’s Monaco Yacht Show prepared to open in mid-September, organizers announced that it will add 15 berths to the 2014 show.



This year, 103 yachts were scheduled to appear, about the same number as in recent years, a number restricted because of space in the harbor. But next year, the show will extend its berth capacities to the entrances of Port Hercules to host four 35m yachts, four 40m yachts, one 45m unit, two yachts of 50 meters, one of 68m, one of 90m and two 120m megayachts.



“This development is a strong reply to the expectations of the brokers and shipyards that cope with a buyers‘ market now,” show organizers said in a statement.  



This decision is the first result of a new partnership signed over the summer by the three players of Port Hercules — the Monaco Harbors Management Company (S.E.P.M.), the Monaco Yacht Club and the Monaco Yacht Show — in an effort to make Monaco the “capital of yachting”, statement said.
