Monaco Yacht Show 20 years ago
As the Monaco Yacht Show approaches its 26th edition, we look back at photos from 20 years ago and see just how different the 1996 show was.
The first thing you’ll notice is the size – Port Hercules has luxury yachts moored up along her Western side at the 1996 Monaco Yacht Show, but the floating pontoons of recent years are visibly absent.
In this photo we can see the yellow funnel of 66 metre superyacht Rosenkavalier (now Dona Amelia). Her protruding bow suggests she’s one of the largest yachts to be displayed that year, but she would be dwarfed by the biggest superyacht at Monaco Yacht Show last year – the 85.1 metre Solandge.
