About Time: The Best Luxury Yacht Parties at the Monaco Grand PrixBy Angelica Malin
When it comes to celebrating in style, luxury yacht parties are hard to beat. From Miami to the French Riviera, large birthday celebrations to intimate weddings, the Olympics to the Monaco Grand Prix, yacht parties may come with a price tag, but deliver an unbeatable private setting complemented with the most exquisite food and high quality service for the ultimate memorable event.
Aside from staying on board in luxury accommodation, hosting yacht parties during events is a fantastic way to take advantage of the global event calendar. The Olympics and the FIFA World Cup, as well as Christmas and New Year’s Eve, are all among the most popular times to charter a luxury yacht to share with friends and family. Nothing, however, causes quite a stir in the annual yacht charter and yacht event markets as the Monaco Grand Prix and the annual Cannes Film Festival.
Yacht Parties at the Monaco Grand Prix
The Monaco Grand Prix takes place every year and is one of the world’s most anticipated motorsport events. From 23 to 26 May 2019, the Principality will turn into one of the most famous race tracks in the world. In this city-state built around yachting, there is no better way to enjoy the Monaco Grand Prix than from the comfort of a superyacht.
A country with a longstanding connection to the world of yachting, Monaco is a slice of paradise that is almost created for yachts and the yachting lifestyle. With a large yacht club, beautifully designed by Lord Norman Foster, a wealth of reputable yachting companies in the vicinity and Port Hercules – the iconic harbour that welcomes superyachts in excess of 100 metres to its docks – Monaco is a yachting paradise.
During events like the Monaco Grand Prix and the Cannes Film Festival – the latter of which is hosted from 14 to 25 May – luxury charter yachts are growing in popularity as a viable option of luxury event accommodation. With yachts available from 30 to 100 metres, the Monaco Grand Prix is one of the superyacht charter market’s busiest periods. Guest can catch all the action of the Grand Prix, followed by some of the best yacht parties in the French Riviera.
Private Yacht Parties
Yacht parties are an increasingly popular way to host friends and business associates and celebrate events in style during important events around the world. Many celebrities and business leaders are known for hosting annual yacht parties at events such as the Cannes Film Festival, while social media royalty is regularly seen chartering yachts for special birthdays and celebrations.
With the superyacht market producing larger, more sophisticated and more luxurious yachts than ever before, it’s not hard to see why the demand for luxury yacht charters is growing during global events. Large charter yachts can be completely transformed to accommodate even the wildest of desires – from a 200-person seated sophisticated dinner to a 50-person cocktail soiree, to parties with multiple dance floors and entertainment acts across different decks. If a private party on a yacht at one of the world’s most glamorous events isn’t celebrating in style, what is?
