Yachts Galore in Monaco

By Linda Tancs

The 20th edition of Monaco’s yacht show, the world’s largest superyacht exhibition, begins today through 25 September at Port Hercules.  Although the economic downturn sent many yacht builders into receivership, you’d never know it by the lineup at this year’s event, sporting the worldwide debut of 30 new vessels.  As the economy shrinks, the yachts get bigger, from an average 41 meters in 2006 to 43 meters this year.  Eighty percent of the show’s visitors come from overseas.  Will you be one of them?

Although I have visited smaller yacht-shows before, I’ve never been to one quite as large and impressing as this one. Can anyone who did visit it tell me whether it is worth coming in all the way from Germany? And does anyone have the dates of this year’s show?
