After the end of the main world exhibition of yachts Monaco Yacht Show on September 28, enough time has passed: the statistics have been updated, the numbers have been published. This year, visitors to the annual boat show in Monte Carlo were able to see the most impressive fleet in the history of the event - 125 superyachts. The average length of the vessels was 49.5 m, the average price of one yacht was € 37.8 million, and the total value of all exhibits reached € 4 billion, which became an absolute record for nearly 30 years of the exhibition. The largest shipyards report that order books are full for years to come.
2019 turned out to be a record for large yacht infrastructure projects. Porto Montenegro, one of the largest marinas in the Mediterranean, has reported increased investment in its projects. In the next ten years, a record € 500 million will be invested in the development of the port and adjacent territories. One of the main development factors is low tax rates. In particular, for businesses related to yachts, the VAT in the country is 7%. This applies to both maintenance and refueling of ships. And yet the Monaco Yacht Show is primarily a platform to showcase new trends and the latest advances in the industry. Here are the most revealing models.

Largest yacht boat show. The 6-deck superyacht was built by the German Lurssen according to the project of the British studio Winch Design. The curves of the superstructure are balanced by the straight lines of the hull. Inside, a detailed fantasy on the theme of the Palace of Versailles. Each of the guest cabins is named after the owner's favorite places: New York, Provence, Paris, London. Naturally, a helipad is provided, which can be transformed into a dance floor or an open-air cinema.

One of the best Italian manufacturers - the Sanlorenzo shipyard - delivered a new 64-meter Attila flagship to the client in the spring. The yacht was built for a permanent customer from Argentina, so the interior has a Latin American style. The yacht has five decks, a helipad and a 78-meter beach club. The elegant exterior was designed by Officina Italiana Design by Mauro Mikkeli. The interior design was carried out by the equally famous Francesco Pashkovsky. One of the interesting solutions is the staircase connecting the pool, dining area and beach club. An entire deck is reserved for the owner, where the master suite with panoramic glazing and access to the terrace with a jacuzzi is located.

The client's decision to turn to the Dutch shipyard Amels was influenced by the ability to deliver the yacht in a fairly quick time frame - three years. And when two geniuses of modern yacht building got down to business (Tim Heywood was responsible for the exterior, and for the interior - the Winch Design studio), there was no doubt that the result would be extraordinary. Five decks, a large bathing platform, a spacious beach club and a memorable sun deck with slightly futuristic walls, creating a semi-enclosed multifunctional space. Various types of wood, semi-precious stones and marble are used in the discreet interior. Add to that a high level of stability on the water and low noise levels - a new hit is ready.

A novelty from an Italian shipyard with over 160 years of history. Through the efforts of the aforementioned Francesco Pashkovsky, everything here is created in order to get the most out of the surrounding sea beauty. Huge sun deck area of 150 sq. m is equipped with a swimming pool and an area for sunbathing and relaxation, a beach club of 55 sq. m is distinguished by opening sides. The main deck is dedicated to the owner's family with a master with a study and two guest cabins. The three decks are connected by a panoramic lift with marble walls.

The fairly young, but already well-established Italian shipyard Tankoa from Genoa immediately attracted attention with its bold solutions and flexibility in relation to the wishes of the customer. In this case, we are dealing with a trend towards sustainability. The new Bintador is equipped with a hybrid system with two MTU 8V4000M54 (895 kW) engines and two 300 kW generators. There are four modes to choose from: DEM (Diesel Electric), Hybrid, Traditional and Booster. The former is the most economical in terms of fuel and the lowest noise level possible, the latter allows it to accelerate to an impressive 18 knots. The owner loves to drive a helicopter on his own, so the yacht is equipped with a touch-and-go helipad, which should be recognized as an extraordinary technical solution given the size of the vessel.

The new flagship of the Australian shipyard Silveryachts. The explorer, which looks like a warship and fully justifies its name, was created by the legendary Swedish designer Espen Oeino. With a length of 85 meters, the yacht is capable of accelerating to 24 knots, while she has a small draft, which is important for old Mediterranean marinas. For maximum comfort, both on the move and during anchorage, four stabilizers are installed on the boat. A helicopter of impressive size, Agusta Westland AW109, can land on board, while the yacht can go on long trips without refueling. Behind the huge dark glasses is not a spy laboratory at all, but a cozy winter garden and a pool with a Jacuzzi for eight people.
Length: 90 m
In the summer, photographers have already caught a new creation of the first combined tandem of Espen Øino International and Terence Disdale Design. When something like this is built, the wow effect is provided anywhere in the world. However, according to the designers from the aforementioned bureaus, the eyes quickly get tired of the vivid impressions, so it was decided to create the interiors in a style that could later be called modern classics. There is no doubt about the level of relaxation of 23 guests, for whom the 90-meter yacht is designed. The luxuriously decorated spaces are distinguished by truly royal dimensions. The vessel has become one of the most capacious in the class: the total volume is 2950 gross tonnage.
Shipyard: Abeking & Rasmussen
Length: 80 m
In the shape of the German Abeking & Rasmussen, it was possible to create a real alien from the future. Thanks to the reputation and previous merits of the shipyard, it looks like we are dealing with a new trend. The recognizable profile will now be followed both at sea and on the shore, and now this yacht is taking the lead by the number of photos on Instagram. The bold design belongs to the award-winning Winch Design. The case when the yacht is simply stuffed with revolutionary solutions. These include the solution of a deck superstructure with panoramic glazing, covering two decks at once.

The recognizable Benetti lines on the new Metis are even more elegant. Still, Italians (and we have before us a classic representative of this warm country) are loved in the first, second and any other way for their design. Giorgio Cassetta worked on the exterior. The interior was designed by the London bureau Bannenberg & Rowell. Some rooms are rotated 30 degrees from traditional layouts for better visibility and maximum enjoyment of the surrounding views. The owner is assigned an apartment on the upper deck of 160 sq. m with an adjoining 55-meter terrace and touch-and-go helipad. Now you can literally carry out the plan "from ship to ball".

The first Riva launched by the new Superyacht division of the legendary Italian brand with 177 years of history. Riva in the yachting world is the embodiment of Italian style, like Ferrari in the car, for example. Without exaggeration, a cult brand. The boats, built in the middle of the 20th century, are still on the move and are a special pride of collectors. The new 50-meter yacht is definitely a transition to a new level. The Race name speaks for itself: a steel, rather aggressive body and a minimalist interior using several shades of polished marble, steel, carbon fiber and leather. The yacht will appeal to fans of Formula 1.>
