Read our personal highlights and why we think 2023 is the year for yachting
Yomira were delighted to be part of the annual Monaco Yacht Show, where there were over 130 superyachts, 30,000 visitors, and numerous industry professionals who exhibited over 4 days of yachting excellence.
World-leading shipyards including Benetti, Heesen, Lurssen, and Sanlorenzo, as well as 550+ exhibitors, were in attendance at Monaco’s iconic Port Hercule where the sun was blazing and the mood was optimistic.
It was clear to us that the sales and charter market is in superb stead, with an array of sparkling new yachts entering the fray, as well as some stunning used yachts, too. The annual show report from SuperyachtTimes revealed a total of 281 superyachts (both new and used) were sold in the first half of 2022. Clearly, the industry is still booming and we are delighted to be a part of it.
The Hottest New Yachts on the Scene
After 2020’s hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Monaco Yacht Show returned in fine form in 2021 and in even finer form in 2022. There is a palpable positive vibe permeating the market, reflected in the range of superb new vessels.
Our personal highlights include the 36m Mulder SOLEMATES, the 55m Amels PAPA, the 75m Admiral KENSHO, and the 85m PROJECT X from Golden Yachts. At the very end of the length scale, the 115m Lurssen AHPO is gloriously colossal and looked right at home in the prestigious port.
Some splendid sailing yachts were also exhibited at the show – we loved seeing the 45m Perini BLUSH looking particularly sharp; it’s the only of its kind to boast a dark red hull which shone resplendent in the dock. The 49m Perini SILENCIO also showed exquisitely alongside the 56m SALVAJE, built by Holland Yachts in 2014, which benefitted from an extensive refit in 2019.
Motor or sailing, only yachts of the highest calibre were on display throughout the Monaco Yacht Show this year, proving the industry’s post-pandemic growth is still in swing.
Sustainability at the Centre
The launch of the new ‘Sustainability Hub’ at The Monaco Yacht Show 2022 showed a renewed commitment to sustainability carried through from last year. Companies that specialise in technology that reduces the environmental impact of superyachts were proudly exhibiting, and environmental credentials proved to be a key theme.
Sustainable ocean exploration is part and parcel of the Yomira way; we select many of our superyachts with their potential for environmental learning and conservation in mind, so it was fantastic to see a similar ethos at the show.
2022 Is the Year for Yachting
One thing’s for sure: with so many premium vessels gracing 2022’s Monaco Yacht Show, it’s clear that yachting is the activity of the year.
