While selfless health care workers across the globe continue to battle on the front lines of the Coronavirus crisis, and governments address the pandemic with various degrees of lockdown, and we all wonder when we’ll ever be able to “return to normal” again, the organizers of the Monaco Yacht Show are giving us all (or at least anyone who loves the art and spectacle of superyachts) something to look forward to in September.
“The 30th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) is still on course to take place from Wednesday 23 to Saturday 26 September 2020 at Port Hercule in Monaco,” they say.
Organizers understand the strategic importance of the MYS to the companies that participate every September. In fact, it’s one of the few must-not-miss shows where everyone—from all the major superyacht shipyards and brokers, to the myriad of businesses and craftsmen and women who create these one-of-a-kind masterpieces—puts very best of the entire superyacht industry on display for current and potential buyers (as well as more than a few dreamers!).
I know that I’m not alone in the hopes that the superyacht world will be coming out of lockdown in style in Monaco this fall simply because the MYS is arguably the best superyacht show in the world.
I mean where else can you go and see over 100 private yachts that average over 180-feet long! Of course, show organizers are keeping a close eye on how the pandemic is evolving, with the hope of a healthier and more stable situation around the globe in coming months.
And they’ll implement directives issued by the government of Monaco and the World Health Organization that reflect how the pandemic has evolved by September 2020.
But since the 2020 Monaco Yacht Show will probably be one of the first occasions in this crazy year to bring all the major players in the luxury yachting industry together in person, I’ve got my fingers crossed.
Watch this space.
