The event during the last week of September will host an impressive line-up of 80 showcase yachts from the world’s leading shipyards. Superyachts by Lürssen, Heesen Yachts, Feadship, and Benetti will all be present in Port Hercule.

The 68.77-metre (225.6-foot) M/Y Drizzle from De Vries Feadship is likely to be the largest vessel in attendance, with more names due to be added in coming weeks.

The organisers say: “530 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 living superyachting by showcasing luxury products, cars and motorcycles and also helicopters and private jet manufacturers.”

The showpiece event takes place from September 27 to 30. You can consult the list of yachts here.
