5 things you need to know about the superyacht market in September

The Monaco Yacht Show fleet is growing

The world’s most prestigious yacht show is showing no signs of slowing its exponential growth. The 2016 Monaco Yacht Show fleet boasts 11 yachts over 65 metres, including the 73.5 metre Amels Plvs Vltra (pictured above). This is almost twice the number at the 2015 event, when there were just six yachts in this size bracket.

Commenting on this trend, Vassilis Fotilas, commercial director for Europe at Fraser Yachts, said: “Compared to last year the size, type and style is much more varied than last year.”

The resurgence of sailing yachts at Monaco is also notable, with 79 metre Royal Huisman schooner Athena easily surpassing the 57 metre Twizzle, which was the largest sailing yacht at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show.

Looking even further back, we can clearly see the dramatic rise in the size of yachts converging on Port Hercules, as the 66 metre Rosenkavalier (now Dona Amelia) dwarfed the other yachts at the 1996 Monaco Yacht Show.
