Monaco Yacht Show September 26-29 2018 – 28th Edition

The Monaco Yacht Show is known as the yachting’s biggest event of the year. Held at the iconic Port Hercules in the principality of Monaco, with over $3.5 billion worth of yachts on display, this four-day event represents the pinnacle of luxury and provides the ultimate showcase for industry influencers.

This past year marked the 28th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show and boy it did not disappoint. The key change this year was the new layout, which took full advantage of the restructured Quai des Etats-Unis. The overall experience for us this year was amazing for our team.

Once again, we partnered with ACrew as a sponsor of their yacht crew headquarters during the show, entertaining and educating crew members from the finest yachts in the world.

AERÉ Docking Solutions had the honor to line up alongside these Super Yachts with 580 other exhibitors, ranging from the finest superyacht builders, award-winning yacht designers, luxury suppliers and influential brokerage houses to the most sought-after tenders and water toys, prestige cars, helicopters and private jet manufacturers.
