There has been much speculation in recent weeks about whether the Monaco Yacht Show — the world’s largest Superyacht Show—scheduled September 23-26 will— and furthermore— should take place this year.

Yachts International is apprised of a recent letter that SYBAss (Super Yacht Builder Association) LYBRA (Large Yacht Brokers Association) have written to Informa, the owner/operators of the Monaco Yacht Show. The letter explains that both associations, which acted cooperatively through this process, have doubts over the safety of the show, the ability and/or willingness for clients to attend and whether the show is appropriate within the context of the global pandemic. SYBAss accounts for 21 of the world’s premier superyacht builders such as Oceanco, Lürssen, Feadship, Benetti, and Amels and LYBRA accounts for eight of the world’s leading superyacht brokerage houses, such as Burgess, Fraser, Edmiston, Northrop & Johnson, and IYC.

“Throughout our industry, there has been much speculation as to whether the Monaco Yacht Show can take place this year. Lockdown arrangements across the globe currently vary and travel restrictions are extensive. It is clear that the necessity for social distancing will continue for the foreseeable future, but beyond that, the detail of the varying government-led restrictions in the coming months is unknown,” begins the letter.
