When the global superyacht industry meets for the Monaco Yacht Show from September 28 to October 1, Deutsche Yachten will also be there with a joint stand. A new member will ensure plenty of exhibits in the harbor.

After a pandemic event last year, the Monaco Yacht Show is returning to normal waters. From September 28 to October 1, Port Hercules will be the show stage for nearly 500 exhibitors from around the world. The working group Deutsche Yachten will be represented with a joint stand at the world’s most important superyacht show. Approximately 50 companies will have their “show home” at booth number AL6 in the air-conditioned tent on Quai Albert 1er. Separate booths have been booked by a total of eleven Deutsche Yachten members: Tilse Yacht Glazing (AL40), SKF Marine (DS78), Lloyd Werft (QH28), Furuno (DS45), Fuchs (DS33), Meyer Yachts (JL6), Ocean Independence (JS13), Oldenburger Interior (AL10), Pantaenius (QH16), Wolz Nautic (AL19) and Alexseal (AL12).

Providing ample exhibits in the marina is Ocean Independence, a fairly fresh Deutsche Yachten member. The Swiss brokerage house is putting a total of more than 400 yacht meters in and out of the harbor, and the eight motor yachts have lengths ranging from 37 to 68 meters and sale prices of up to 98 million euros.

By the way, the changes in ticket grouping from last year will be maintained. The “Discover” category is purely for end users, i.e. owners and charterers. The “Advise” ticket is for owners’ representatives and similar consultants, while pure B2B visitors will be classified as “Connect”. With that comes access restrictions. On Wednesday, the first day of the show, the docks will only be accessible to holders of “Discover” and “Advise” badges; “Connect” visitors will have to wait a day. According to show management, this is to create a more relaxed atmosphere when visiting the yachts. 

Claus-Ehlert Meyer, Managing Director of the German Boat and Shipbuilders Association and thus also of Deutsche Yachten, is looking forward to the show: “The fair is an extremely important event for our members and the theme ‘Made in Germany’ is still very important in the industry, which will be observed on the exhibits in the harbor. How the lack of customers from Russia will play out remains to be seen. Greater interest from the United States is what we expect in any case.”

The traditional German Yachts Reception at the show will be able to take place again this year. On Wednesday evenings, experience shows that the event is a very well-attended get-together of shipyards, suppliers, owner representatives, designers and captains. Meyer: “After last year’s cancellation due to the pandemic, I’m particularly looking forward to seeing as many guests as possible.”
