The Monaco Yacht Show attracts more than 100 of the world’s finest yachts and luxury tenders

Catering the restaurant is Private Dining by Fairmont Monte Carlo, where you can also enjoy a glass of champagne by Taittinger in a luxurious setting designed by interior decorator Sabrina Monte-Carlo in collaboration with Italian designer Paola Lenti, the French crystal manufacturer Baccarat and the art gallery Opera Gallery. The Upper Deck Lounge also includes several reception areas reserved exclusively for the executives of exhibiting companies – areas where they can talk with their customers in confidence.

Luxury manufacturers and exclusive services On display in the lounge will be the finest timekeepers manufactured by the Swiss

luxury watchmaker Ulysse Nardin, official sponsor of the MYS for the sixth consecutive year. New this 2014, the MYS will be hosting the superyacht captains and crews in an exclusive lounge for the four days of the show. Located in the show venue, beside the new Monaco Yacht Club, the MYS C&C Lounge will offer services of high quality: animations, a relaxation area with massages – simply a lounge area where captains and crew can meet up and chill out. What also makes Monaco so special during the show is the hundreds of social events organised by the exhibitors: press conferences, debates with market lead-

ers, and friendly happy hours at stands. Cocktail or evening parties on board the yachts, yacht awards or gala dinners in the luxury hotels in the Principality are also some of the many highlights that enable formal and informal networking and often attract those that can afford and do buy superyachts.
