The ultimate Monaco Grand Prix F1 yacht hospitality package & after race party

Even if you haven’t chartered a private superyacht for the Monaco Grand Prix, you can still step on board one and secure yourself a spot at the heart of the action with an exclusive Monaco F1 hospitality package.

As one of the most exciting parts of the Monaco Grand Prix unfolds alongside Port Hercules, the ultimate way to take in the drama is from a superyacht berthed track-side – an option made possible by the exclusive superyacht hospitality packages designed especially for your enjoyment.

Not only will the leading packages offer the best seats in the house, but they will also provide a host of other benefits. To ensure you get the most out of your Monaco Grand Prix F1 hospitality package, here’s the low down on everything you need to consider when making your booking.

Best Trackside location to view the race

The Monaco Grand Prix is one of only two fixtures on the Formula One circuit where the trackside action can be seen from a luxury yacht - the other being the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Demand for a track-side 'Zone 1' berth is fierce, making it extremely difficult to secure one for a private yacht charter. But the very best hospitality packages are based in one of these desirable locations.

If you want to experience the grand prix in the lap of luxury, securing a hospitality package on board a yacht in one of these coveted slips is an absolute necessity, as is picking out a tri-deck yacht for the very best views.

The premier packages will take place on a tri-deck superyacht built by a distinguished shipyard. These larger yachts with more decks have the height needed to offer optimal views across the track and therefore allow those on board some of the best vantage points in Monaco.  

There will also be ample space on board for watching the race in absolute comfort and luxurious amenities such as spa pools and bars will further enhance the on-board experience. Generous volumes, luxurious styling and modern facilities will also be apparent across the interior.   

Plus, as hospitality packages extend into the evening with post-race entertainment, the yacht will be equipped with state-of-the-art sound systems and nightclub facilities for an unrivalled party setup.

On the best superyacht hospitality packages, the drinks served on board are of the highest quality, from ice-cold flutes of champagne to premium brands of alcohol and soft drinks. 

All beverages will be free-flowing from the moment you step on board. Experienced bartenders will be on hand to whip up whatever refreshment you choose, and attentive waiting staff will ensure your glass is never empty throughout the racing and well into the evening when the on-board entertainment begins.

Gourmet buffet lunch

Those choosing an F1 yacht hospitality package can expect to be well-catered to, with a mouthwatering spread of gourmet cuisine to suit every palate and dietary requirement.

Enjoy delectable canapes and bite-size portions of classic dishes, many of which feature innovative flavour infusions in keeping with the culinary flair of the Riviera. 

Appearances from former F1 drivers

If your deal includes this feature, expect to hear some fascinating insight from some of the biggest names in motorsports, followed by a Q&A session which will no doubt enlighten and enthrall Formula One fans. 

DJ after-party

Those who want to be a part of Monaco's glittering social scene should opt for a hospitality package that includes a post-race party. With guests still on a high from the excitement of the racing, the energy at these events is guaranteed to be upbeat and exhilarating.

Many packages include dazzling DJ sets from big-name acts, who ensure the yacht is transformed into a club-like atmosphere reminiscent of Monaco's most sought-after night spots.

Eddie Jordan, former motorsports boss, recommends the yacht parties himself, saying: "I really love playing at the Friday night yacht party. It's the best way to start the weekend, and the guys really do host the most spectacular event in the harbour."

Spot Famous faces

You can expect to spot some celebrities while on board your superyacht. The French Riviera plays host to the Cannes Film Festival a week before the grand prix gets underway and Hollywood A-listers and other prominent names will often stick around especially for the iconic sporting fixture. 

Superyacht parties often attract the biggest concentration of VIPs and past stars caught soaking up the F1 action have included Kendall Jenner, Adriana Lima, Serena Williams, Chris Hemsworth and Jose Mourinho.

Full weekend passes

The leading hospitality packages can be adapted to suit your preferences and this includes how long you wish to stay in Monaco. As well as the option to spend a day on board, there is also the chance to create a longer itinerary which spreads over the grand prix race weekend. 

Monaco begins with practice laps on Thursday and takes a break on Friday before resuming again with qualifying sessions on Saturday and the main race on Sunday. Therefore, you can opt for a package that spreads over five days and features all the benefits above alongside some additional features, if desired. 

For example, VIP table passes at the Amber Lounge, the official grand prix after-party venue, or tickets to a prestigious rooftop venue to mix up your viewing platforms can be incorporated into your weekend.
