Every year, two annual events make a visit to the city of Monte Carlo a must for yacht charter clientele – the Monaco Grand Prix and the Monaco Yacht Show.  With the Grand Prix a distant image in our rearview mirrors, focus turns to the yacht show.

What makes this show truly unique is the number of new yachts on hand.  About 40 of the newest  superyachts delivered in the past 12 months will be on exhibit.

Here are several yachts from the 1-800 Yacht Charter database scheduled to be on display:

Motor yacht ICON  – a 62.50 meter custom built yacht launched in 2010.

Motor yacht CARPE DIEM – a 58.20 meter vessel launched in 2011.

Motor yacht MIA ELISE – a 2010, 49.90 meter custom built motoryacht by Trinity Yachts.


Motor yacht QUINTA ESSENTIA – a 55 meter yacht built in 2011 and known for her unique color scheme.

The show is open daily.  In specific, from 10am to 6.30pm.  It takes place at Port Hercules, Boulevard Albert 1er, in the Principality of Monaco. The main entrance to the show is the Darse Sud entrance.  There are other entry points at the Chicane and Parvis Sud.   General admission tickets are available at the entrances for €65 per day.

Can’t make the show?  Our charter department personally inspects dozens of yachts each year on behalf of our clients.  To plan a private Caribbean yacht charter vacation this winter, contact the charter team at 1800 Yacht Charters at for yacht and itinerary suggestions

Superyacht: So Where Do You Park it?

Posted on

Where does an elephant sit? #joke


There’s an old joke that goes something like this:  “Where does a 200-ton elephant sit?
The answer of course is, “Anywhere he wants!



Unlike the mighty elephant, superyachts aren’t as lucky.  Their massive size is certainly impressive, but when it comes to sufficient space to dock, there just aren’t enough marinas with enough room to berth the world’s largest yachts.  Owners onboard large luxury yacht charter vessels often are forced to anchor at sea and use tenders to come and go ashore.



Thus the news of a megayacht berth for sale along the French Riviera is certain to draw the attention of yachtsman tired of the ordeal of tendering ashore.

A rare 50-meter berth has just been listed for long-term lease in Cap d’Ail. Cap d’Ail is perfectly positioned on the Cote d’Azur and serves as a gateway to Monte Carlo, just a short drive or cruise from Nice, France, and northern Italy.

With large yacht berths rapidly becoming a rare find, this slip will surely sell quickly. The berth measures 50 x 10 meters and comes with fenders (is there anything worse than a scratched paint job on a fancy yacht?).   The berth’s lease expires December 31, 2027.



The asking price of berth number 6 is € 4,500,000. 

Sounds like a steal!



Some of the newest yachts in the 50-meter range include Perini Navi motor yacht EXUMA
racehorse-inspired Motoryacht HURRICANE RUN, and the Trinity yacht charter superstar, motor yacht MIA ELISE.  



In conclusion, book a superyacht for your own private luxury yacht charter vacation today. Contact your yacht charter brokers at 1-800 Yacht Charters at 305-720-7245. If you prefer, complete our online inquiry form at .
