The coolest yachts in town for the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix

26 May 2023

Every year, Monaco’s Grand Prix pulls in some of the fleet’s finest superyachts for a weekend of adrenaline-fuelled F1 action and A-lister events in the heart of the principality. Yachts moored stern to the circuit have a premium vantage point over the cars tearing around the track, while superyachts at anchor can enjoy all the Formula One buzz with the added benefit of privacy and seclusion. These are all the yachts to look out for at the 2023 event…

Phoenix 2 | 90m

Designed to fulfill a brief for an entertainment-led layout, Phoenix 2 is the ideal candidate for hosting guests during the Monaco Grand Prix. She has a good balance of cosy interior areas and open al fresco socialising spaces, including an enclosed winter garden that can host up to 120 guests. The 90-metre Lürssen is located in the Monaco anchorage close to the entrance of the port, and yacht-spotters can look out for her distinctive 5.4-metre phoenix figurehead on the bow.

Titiana| 73m

Charter machine Titania has secured a coveted trackside berth for the event, giving her guests the ultimate view over the cars roaring through Monaco. The main deck aft will be popular for guests looking for a shaded spot, while the sundeck has plenty of seating options, plus a 4.5-metre pool with a swim-up bar. Anyone seeking a respite from the Formula One will find plenty of interior spaces to enjoy, including an expansive main saloon and skylounge with drop-down cinema screen.

Lady Jorgia | 115m

Marking the largest yacht sale of 2023 so far, the iconic 115.1-metre Lürssen is making her first high-profile appearance as Lady Jorgia. The ex-Ahpo has an exterior by Nuvolari Lenard which is defined by sugar-scoop windows and large segments of black along the top of the superstructure. The design is said to be influenced by Ferraris, making her right at home in the Monaco anchorage.

Octopus | 126m

Octopus is fresh from a charter trip around Antarctica, and while her amenities list may make her better-suited to exploration, she is still a welcome addition to Port Hercules. The 126.2-metre yacht has an exterior by Espen Øino, with interiors by Monk Design and Jonathan Quinn Barnett.  Octopus is home to seven tenders, a glass-bottomed underwater observation lounge, smoothie bar and a basketball court.

Aalto | 80m

Formerly known as Amevi, the 80-metre Oceanco giant Aalto is berthed in the centre of Port Hercule to catch the Grand Prix. The yacht has a recognisable Nuvolari Lenard exterior and interiors by the late Alberto Pinto, with an interior volume of 2310GT that’s sure to provide plenty of spaces to watch the races from indoors. The yacht was rechristened in July 2022 and her name now means “wave” in Finnish.

Joy Me | 50m

Joy Me, usually berthed in Cap d’Ail, is making an appearance in Port Hercules for the Grand Prix. She’ll be one of the most recognisable yachts at the event, with her custom red and white exterior and unusual eye motif — said to be the eyes of the commissioning owner’s daughter. The Croatian-built yacht 49.9-metre has masses of exterior areas for guests to make the most of, as well as a fun interior with plenty of modern artwork.

Lammouche | 44m

Fresh from her groundbreaking trials of a new type of biofuel, 44-metre Lammouche is a 2010 Sanlorenzo with a charter-orientated configuration. Highlights include a spacious sundeck bordered by glass bulwarks for uncompromising views over Monte Carlo.

Resilience | 65.5m

Resilience has been an active cruiser since her launch in 2021, showing up on the scene for the New Year’s Eve festivities in St Barths and now arriving on the scene for the Monaco Grand Prix. The 65.5-metre ISA yacht has a sporty design from Enrico Gobbi - Team for Design, and the Italian studio has worked to create a modern, yet comfortable interior with accommodation for a total of 14 guests.

Loon | 55m

Instagram's favourite charter yacht Loon is also part of the line-up of yachts attending the Grand Prix, berthed inside the port within easy distance of all the action. The 54.5-metre Newcastle Marine is usually found cruising the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean and putting her mammoth treasure chest of toys to good use, but she's now based across the pond. Her big sister, the recently-purchased Icon yacht Loon, is just up the coast in Marseille.

Cloud 9 | 89m

Cloud 9 marked one of the largest yacht sales of 2022 and she made her first public appearance under her new name at last year's Monaco Grand Prix. When she was known as Infinity, the Oceanco build was notoriously private – now it seems she’s spending a little more time in the limelight. She is listed for charter with Burgess and comes complete with expansive lounging spaces, a decadent beauty saloon and a main deck pool that measures almost 18 metres squared.

Lionheart | 90m

In 2016, Lionheart was launched by Benetti as the Italian shipyard’s new flagship and is the owner's third Benetti to bear the same name. The 90-metre motor yacht is no stranger to Monte Carlo, spending most of her time cruising the French and Italian Riviera from her home base in Port Hercules. Lionheart is currently berthed at the end of Quai Rainier.
