The Monaco Yacht Show is almost upon us. The 2022 edition of the venerable exhibition will take place in the Principality September 28 through October 1. All indications are, the event will be back in full and them some after having been strained by the pandemic. It will have an even greater emphasis on sustainability and the broader superyacht lifestyle than previous editions.
This year’s MYS is divided into two main exhibition areas: afloat and on the quayside. Afloat, more than a hundred superyachts and 50-plus luxury tenders will be displayed by top builders and brokers in the market. More than 450 hand-picked companies representing excellence and innovation in yachting exhibit on the quayside: designers and naval architects, yacht suppliers and service providers or manufacturers of tenders and nautical gadgets.
In recent years, the show has extended its exhibition offer to the ultra-high-end markets intrinsically linked to the art of the superyacht lifestyle by showcasing luxury products, cars and motorcycles, as well as helicopters and private jet manufacturers.
The show is unmatched globally for the quality and length of its superyacht offerings. Among the 100-plus superyachts on display, more than 40 new models will be unveiled as world premieres this year. The fleet has an average length of 50 meters (164 feet) and superyachts exceeding 100 meters (328 feet) will be present.
Since its inception in 1991, the show has become an must-experience event for visitors who come to discover an outstanding concentration of superyachts available for purchase or charter and to meet the industry experts in the glamorous atmosphere of the Principality of Monaco.
The Monaco Yacht Show is organized under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.
Today, superyachting is redefined by your personal vision of the world. Your yacht can take you to unusual destinations to experience truly unique thrills on your next charter: drive all-terrain vehicles to the North Pole, go on an underwater excursion, take a tender ride off the coast of secluded islands, enjoy tailor-made tours of historical and cultural sites in coastal destinations, discover animal species – while respecting their ecosystems – and even take part in scientific field trips.
The Monaco Yacht Show’s Adventure Area brings you cutting-edge yachting experiences, with a wide range of equipment, activities and services: sports and day-trip tenders, luxury and off-road vehicles, sea toys, high-tech gadgets, helicopters and excursion programs to the planet’s most exotic and remote destinations.

Cars and Water Toys on Two Different Sites
The Adventure Area was launched at MYS 2022 and combines the former Car Deck (luxury cars) and Tenders & Toys exhibitions.
The Adventure Area thereby opens up the show’s range of luxury vehicles to other high-end off-road models. It includes two exhibitions at Quai Antoine Ier and Quai Jarlan—one on the docks and one afloat.
The Monaco Yacht Show is committed to sustainable actions. Organizers initiated a pro-environmental approach in 2005 (Carbon Neutral Program). A sustainable action program for the show’s organization has been set up in cooperation with the Government of Monaco and the Informa Group. The Monaco Yacht Show also supports the environmental protection initiatives of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Blue Marine Foundation and the Water Revolution Foundation.
