Monaco Yacht Show 2011

Wednesday, 21 September: The 2011 Monaco Yacht Show kicks off today. Port Hercule is bristling with new yachts, and offshore I counted a good seventy yachts yesterday.

To pick just three, in the port, the 86m Seven Seas from Oceanco is sure to garner a fair deal of attention, while outside the superb Palladium, designed by Michael Leach, is currently moored off the Sporting d’Eté, with stylish tender zipping in and out of port regularly - not far from Fincantieri’s massive launch, Serene.

And now for your monacoeye weather report: the weather is fine, the sea is calm, the sky a cloudless blue …

Monaco Yacht Show night


The 2010 Monaco Yacht Show ended on a tragic note, as a 28-year-old British sailor from Perini Navi superyacht Burrasca, fell overboard from his RIB tender after colliding at speed with 31-metre sailing yacht Fado, which was at anchor off the Sporting d’Eté in Monaco.

The accident happened at about 10.30 pm on Saturday night, a few hours after the show had ended, as many yachts had already started to leave.

After an intensive search, divers had been unable to find him by Sunday night. Read More...

Monaco Yacht Show 2005

The YCM's annual yacht show is only a couple of weeks away and the tents are already going up on the Darse Nord and Darse Sud.
I'm hoping to get a few decent shots.
With a bit of luck I'll be able to add Haida G, Leander G, Solemar, the new 61m Feadship Blue Moon and the new 62m Oceanco Lady Christina to the index, as they should all be making an appearance.
