These are the must-see yachts at the 2021 Monaco Yacht Show

23 September 2021 by Izzie Price - Gentleman's Journal

Monaco Yacht Show is the highlight of any yachting enthusiast's calendar (and any gentleman's calendar, too...); and we've curated a list of the superyachts you should have your eye on this year.

If there was ever an event that encapsulated luxury, iconicity and sheer, unrivalled quality: it would be the Monaco Yacht Show. And if you’re even vaguely nautically minded, the three-day long event (taking place this year from 22-25 September at Monaco’s elegant, refined Port Hercules) will be an affair you’ll have to actively tear yourself away from.

Superyacht after superyacht bobs away in the azure waters, with every sleek, polished surface gleaming and making a visit on board — whether for purchase or charter — irresistible. Meanwhile, the opportunity to mix and mingle with brokers, designers, craftsmen, shipyards and yachting professionals is one that simply can’t be passed up; and the chance to immerse oneself in highly polished, state-of-the-art nautical luxury is one that has had these three days cemented in many a diary for many a month.


The big draw, though, will always be those superyachts. Built by masters of their craft, designed by the best in the business and managed by brokers who only work with yachts of the very highest calibre, these superyachts have well and truly earned that (somewhat superlative) moniker. So without further ado, here are the yachts you should have your eye on at this year’s show…

“HANIKON is a truly exceptional yacht built to the highest specification by the top Dutch yard Feadship,” says Henry Smith: Partner and Director of Cecil Wright & Partners, Monaco Office. “She has been pretty much fully booked the whole summer with charter — and would have continued to be, were it not for the fact that she is now for sale (EUR 22,900,000).”

It’s unsurprising that HANIKON has had such a busy summer: originally built as HIGH CHAPARRAL, her amenities are second to none and she’s in positively shipshape condition, thanks to the regular updates and upgrades to both her system and overall aesthetics.

“She’s a stunning yacht with outstanding facilities and expansive entertaining spaces,” continues Smith, “including an upper salon bar perfect for pre-dinner cocktails, bridge deck dining for 20 guests, an outdoor cinema on the sun deck, a spa and massage room and an exemplary collection of water toys: making her a standout choice the discerning buyer.”
