2017: More yachts attend than ever before

As the years have gone by, the yachts in attendance have only grown in size and number. In this photo taken at last year's Monaco Grand Prix this is evident, with the harbour at Port Hercules filled by superyachts and even a cruise ship.

The fee to be docked berth side for the Monaco Grand Prix can be up to €16,625 per day for a 60 metre yacht, which is nearly 14 times more than the typical summer season rate of €1,200 per day. Booking must take place far in advance. But there are likely many more yachts that would pay it if they could, as the harbour fills up every year. What isn't pictured is the bay just beyond the harbour, which is also filled with an incredible amount of superyachts.

Each year more and more yachts and guests flock to this high-octane event, equally to watch the racing action and enjoy the superyacht parties. Attending this year? Buckle up! It's going to be a fun ride.
