That was Monaco

Monaco Yacht Show is over for another year. Here's a quick update.

Heesen's New Triplets



The week started with an invitation to breakfast from the sales team at Heesen. They issued a trailer with a Jaws theme to it. The spectacular presentation using lasers, made you feel like you were in the water looking up at a shadow of a shark. You're gonna need a bigger boat, was the strap line.

The bigger boats were then shown. One was confidential, possibly for the owner of Heesen and one a 66m Steel, designed by Andrew Winch who was in attendance. The largest was the 83m Steel called Maximus, designed by Clifford Denn (shown above).  

A yacht to meet your needs


You can't fail to find something suitable at Monaco. Getting on board and feeling the living space, the interior design and chatting to your crew, helps to make the right decision. We were also able to have bankers meeting us on board to talk to clients about their commercial needs.

A trip onboard an Aston Martin


Having a tender available that you were actually selling, was a plus point of this year's Monaco. We were able to go out to view Okto, at anchor, while taking in the experience on the AM37.

Finding Peter Lurssen


Trying to get some time with Peter Lurssen for a client discussion was one of the more challenging activities of the week. The wait didn't matter however, as we were looked after by the crew while we relaxed on the beautiful yacht Areti.

Next Year


Will be bigger and better. We've already had early discussions with a new partner for the event who shares our big plans for next year, so it's going to be incredible. Can't say more at this stage but if you're a potential buyer or seller at Monaco next year, get in touch.
