This year’s Monaco Yacht Show — the 25th edition — will have extra berths and a new home for one of its exhibit areas, the Darse Nord.
The changes stem from the Monaco government’s renovation of Port Hercules, including new underground car parks and the repositioning of the museum of the private collection of antique cars of HSH Prince Rainier III. As a result, Darse Nord will move on Quai Antoine 1er in two air-conditioned exhibition tents (A and B).
Beginning this year, the show will have three berths alongside the Quai Rainier III to welcome yachts over 100m, bringing the number of yachts on display to 121.
Other changes include: the main entrance to Darse Sud will move to the end of Quai Antoine 1er (facing the former Yacht Club de Monaco); golf carts will transport guests from Darse Sud to the Quai Antoine 1er entrance; and shuttle boats – including a boat for 50 passengers — will transport visitors across the port, linking Quai Antoine 1er and the northern side of the Port (Quai des États-Unis, Quai de l’Hirondelle and the new Yacht Club de Monaco).
