The final installment of our look at the top yachts to see at this year's Monaco Yacht Show includes multi award-winning sailer Vertigo, and the first 26m WallyAce Kanga. Here are our final six Monaco must sees.

1. Hampshire II Stand T40, T central

78.5m Feadship Hampshire II

Delivered by Feadship to her sports-loving owner in July, RWD-designed 78.5m Hampshire II features a foredeck helicopter platform that can be transformed into a playing field for basketball, tennis, baseball, badminton and football. Thrill seekers can take the lift up to the crow's nest and shoot down a zip wire to the water.

2. Candyscape II Stand N08, Quai de l'Hirondelle

61.8m Viareggio Superyachts Candyscape II

The yard's first yacht, this 2009 Viareggio Superyachts launch was bought by design and property specialist Candy & Candy, to showcase its glamorous interiors. The 61.8m won a World Superyacht Award in 2010, and is at the show offered for sale.

_Candyscape II _is listed for sale with Edmiston and Burgess, asking 47,500,000.

3. Vertigo Stand T03, T central

Although she was launched by Alloy Yachts in 2011, the mighty, multi award-winning, 837GT Vertigo has been eagerly awaited and will be one of the stars of the show. The 67.2m Philippe Briand design, with a Christian Liaigre interior, took 800,000 man-hours to build.

4. Lady Linda Stand T10, T central

57m Trinity Yachts Lady Linda

This new launch from US yard Trinity Yachts combines a beam of 10.2m with a draught of just 2.4m, ideal for the shallows of Florida and The Bahamas where she will be based. The 57m sports a contemporary Evan K Marshall interior.

The first 26m WallyAce, Kanga, splashed down in June. Her innovative displacement hull increases performance and reduces fuel consumption (she has a 5,000nm range at nine knots). Key to this is her efficient 'Wallybow', by Wally, Allseas and Luca Bassani Design a vertical bow with a bulb. Comfort has also been considered and Kanga features over 50m2 of interior social areas and generous exterior areas including a 60m2 sundeck.

6. Lady Petra Stand E13, Quai Etats-Unis
