Heralding the unofficial start of the Mediterranean yachting season, the Monaco Grand Prix brings roaring races, A-lister events and a swell of superyacht titans to the principality each year. The event is one of just two Formula One fixtures on the calendar that can be watched from on board as the yachts moor stern to the track in Port Hercules. Catch the best views of the action from one of these yachts, available to charter at the 2023 race.
Guaranteed to garner plenty of attention, the 60.9-metre Arience is one of the largest charter yachts available for charter at the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix. She was built by German yard Abeking & Rasmussen and delivered in 2012, featuring interior and exterior styling by Reymond Langton Design. Enjoy front-row seats to race from her expansive sun deck.
