Informa, the organization of the show expected a more buyer-focused version of the event this year. A “VIP Wednesday” was aimed at vetted buyers, but the attendees quashed those plans. The number of visitors is almost the same as in 2019, the last edition of The Monaco Yacht Show.
This year’s event includes new launches, which truly steal all the attention, such as Feadship’s 308-foot Viva and the 279-foot explorer yacht Victorious by Akyacht, the same way the 354-foot Benetti was a show stopper in 2019 and was the largest yacht at the show.
We weren’t sure what to expect in 2021, but interest has been huge. Clients are here to shop. All our boats have had back-to-back viewings, almost unheard of for this event.Nicci Perides, Burgess’s head of communications
Luxury yacht owners and clients attending to buy for the first time waited until the last minute to attend the event. The feeding-frenzy atmosphere across all boats was encouraged by new launches and product announcements at the show.
