Organisers of this year’s Monaco Yacht Show have announced that the popular upper deck lounge has undergone an exciting transformation for the 2019 MYS. The reveal was made during a special cocktail toasting 100 days to the main event.
On the rooftop of the Monte Carlo Star overlooking the Mediterranean sea, guests gathered on Tuesday 25th June to celebrate the 100 day countdown to the Monaco Yacht Show.
“The 100 days to the MYS event launched the final lap to the show,” said Johan Pizzardini, MYS communications manager. “In a few days, we’ll announce the 125 superyachts that will be in port Hercules this September and I must say this will be a jaw-breaking selection. The 2019 edition will present the most voluminous superyacht fleet ever exhibited in 29 years!”
It has been revealed that this year the upper deck lounge will offer high quality amenities on two floors. The ground floor will be dedicated to luxury exhibitors and feature a bar with an outdoor terrace, while the first floor will host a restaurant and a VIP lounge with a panoramic view over Port Hercules.
The upper deck lounge will also offer new collections and exclusive products displayed by luxury brands including Ulysse Nardin, Giobagnara, G&M Design, Preciosa and Sabrina Monte Carlo.
On the first floor, the Horizon restaurant-bar will suggest daily exciting menus for lunch and will open its bar late in the afternoon. Meanwhile, in the VIP lounge, the show’s visitors will be spoiled with Lanson champagne and massages for relishing a quiet moment away from the docks.
“The MYS has become one of the world’s top 10 events to attend for the social elite,” said Mr Pizzardini. “The show has become a unique experience for enthusiasts of superyachting or prospective charterers and purchasers. We target very affluent people, so we should offer an experience in keeping with their lifestyles.”
The Monaco Yacht Show was created in 1991 and each year showcases 125 extraordinary one-off superyachts and megayachts, of which 40 new launches are annually unveiled in a worldwide debut.
On the docks, there is a selection of 580 leading companies in the industry, including superyacht builders and nautical suppliers, yacht designers, luxury manufactures and brokerage houses, as well as water toys, prestige cars, helicopter and private jet manufacturers.
The Monaco Yacht Show will be held from 25th to 28th September.
