This year’s Monaco Yacht Show offered an extremely exciting array of global launches, as well as some firm favourites back for another year on display. If you couldn’t make it to the Monaco Yacht Show 2019, here were the top five yachts and top five gadgets we spotted. Get ready to be blown away…
The Best Superyachts At Monaco Yacht Show 2019
1. 111m TIS by Lurssen
At 111m, TIS was one of the largest yachts at the Monaco Yacht Show 2019. With an elegance that was unrivalled by any other yacht at the show, each room is a new work of art, said to be inspired by all the Owner’s favourite places including Provence, Tuscany, New York, London, Morocco, South East Asia and a Russian dacha. Meanwhile, the exterior decor modernises traditional maritime styling, with deep blue and mahogany colouring.
Onboard you’ll find an opulent spa and gym area, indoor and outdoor cinemas, a glass elevator complete with a velvet seat, and nine stylish cabins. She is available for Monaco yacht charter, meaning you can experience her yourself!
2. 79m #135 by CRN
Not for sale or charter – instead exhibited for people to see exactly what CRN can do – #135 certainly impressed at Monaco Yacht Show 2019. Five decks of pure luxury, the #135 wowed her guests from the off with her ultra-grand, ultra-welcoming beach club, providing panoramic views of her surroundings. We were also excited to learn that this beach club opens up from both sides of the yacht, offering easier access to water toys and tenders.
Her five cabins host 12 guests, with space for 29 crew onboard ensuring that each guest enjoys ultimate comfort.
3. 77.25m SYZYGY by Feadship
One of our favourite yachts at Monaco Yacht Show 2019, Feadship’s mysterious Syzygy 818 has been beautifully designed by Jarkko Jämsén, with the stunning interior the work of Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design. We were also intrigued to learn about the origin of the yacht’s name, which reflects the Owner’s birthday on the 18th August and the – very appropriate – meaning of 818 in Chinese numerology, as ‘prosperous’. Meanwhile, the word Syzygy has astrological links, used to refer to a rare event such as a lunar eclipse.
She sleeps 12 across six guest rooms, features amenities including a helipad and swimming pool, and offers timeless styling.
4. 43m HYPERION by Royal Huisman
This sailing yacht may not be a brand new addition to Royal Huisman’s fleet, but it was still one of our standout superyachts of the show, combining state-of-the-art design with classic features. Currently for sale with Edmiston & Company for €12,950,000, and with exterior design by German Frers and interiors by Pieter Beeldsnijder, we can’t imagine this yacht will stay on the market for long.
Hosts six guests across three spacious cabins, alongside up to eight crew.
5. 50m Bintador by Tankoa
Last but not least, the Tankoa Bintador amazed in her debut, becoming one of the most talked about yachts at the Monaco Yacht Show 2019. Her design has been described as “light and modern tones with an abundance of natural materials”, with the interiors handled by Francesco Paszkowski Design in collaboration with Margherita Casprini.
Onboard we loved the two exquisite VIP cabins, the gym and the opulent beach club. Sleeps up to 11 guests in pure comfort.
The Best Gadgets At Monaco Yacht Show 2019
1. 55S by Wajer
At Monaco Yacht Show 2019 we were excited to see Wajer’s 55S in real life, looking even more glamorous close up. This beautifully-designed tender can reach an impressive speed of over 40 knots and offers exhilarating joystick driving, all the while offering luxurious amenities such as an outdoor galley complete with grill, refrigerator and ice-maker. The party never stops on the 55S, with a state-of-the-art custom-made audio system to play all your favourite songs as you cruise across the water.
2. Toy Island by FunAir
Perfect for those for whom five or six toys is never quite enough, the FunAir Toy Island platform is an inflatable that allows you to dock a variety of watercrafts away from the yacht, whether that be attached to your superyacht as an extension of your swim platform or tethered to trail behind. This means guests can enjoy multiple high-octane activities at the same time!
Toy Island can also be tethered to a secluded beach or jetty, used to securely dock water toys. What’s more, it’s a handy place to take a rest when you’ve tired yourself out from all those watersports!
3. eFoil by Lift
There was a lot of excitement about the Lift eFoil exhibited by SYTT, and so we were glad to see it lived up to expectations. You’ll literally fly above the waves on this elevated bodyboard, which is powered by an electric motor and easily controlled via a wireless Bluetooth hand controller. The result is one of the most fun experiences you can imagine. The team have now sold over 1,000 all around the world, and we are tempted to get one for ourselves!
4. Diver Chronometer watch by Ulysses Nardin
Ulysses Nardin are a highlight of every MYS, longtime official sponsors of the show, and this year the watchmakers delighted with their new Diver Chronometerwatch. Able to withstand up to 300 metres of water depth and exquisitely crafted, with an inverted, concave bezel with domed sapphire glass, the Diver Chronometer watch is all about stylish functionality. What’s more, superluminova on the indexes and hands mean that you will be able to check the time not only in the dark of night but also at great depths. On sale from €7,900.
5. Super Yacht Sub 3 by U-Boat Worx
Last but not least, the Monaco Yacht Show 2019 showed us one of the coolest submarine we’ve ever seen – U-Boat Worx’s Super Yacht Sub 3. This underwater vessel manages to be lightweight and compact while delivering on luxury, with her glamorous yet extremely comfortable chairs providing stunning views of the sea’s mysterious depths. You’ll even find a hi-fidelity Bluetooth sound-system and a cold-storage box for keeping your favourite drinks onboard.
