From May, superyachts converge for the Monaco Grand Prix, where yacht-goers waltz from one sun-dappled boat party to the sultry environs of legendary haunts like Sass Café and Jimmy’z in a twinkling instant.

Who Goes on a Monaco Yacht Charter?

With the grandeur of a bygone era, Monaco's diminutive dimensions belie the rarefied bubble it attracts: long graced by stars, royalty and the SuperyachtSet, the country's iconic marina is a superyacht extraordinaire. Bestowed with bars and boutiques nearby, cradled by soaring hills that are etched with the eye-poppingly ornate royal palace, and the Belle Époque twin glories of Casino de Monte-Carlo and opera house Salle Garnier a mere saunter away, Port Hercule is ablaze with the world's glitterati each summer.

History and Culture

This picturesque coastal nation is the world’s smallest country, after the Vatican, and is renowned as a haven for the rich and famous, who enjoy the Monaco’s tax-free status and glamorous locales. 

In 1297, the Grimaldi family settled in Monaco after the land was granted to Genoa by Emperor Henry IV, with ancestors of the family controlling the principality ever since. In 1949, Prince Rainier III ascended the throne, and married Grace Kelly in 1956. The prince played an important role in bringing economic prosperity to the area, while his American actress wife was instrumental in promoting arts and culture and bringing glamor to the small nation. 

The principality’s tax-free status and no income tax has attracted many rich residents, who have also played their part in shaping this tiny glittering enclave into the JetSet destination it is today. Monaco’s rich cultural influences can also be attributed to its neighbors France, Italy & Spain, with Roman Catholicism making up over two thirds of its resident’s religious beliefs.

Types of Yacht Charters in Monaco

Perched with poise above the cornflower-blue waters of the Mediterranean, motor yacht and sailing yacht charters in Monaco are in prime position to explore the wonders of the encircling French Riviera, such as Villefranche-sur-Mer, St. Tropez, Nice and Cannes, as well as venturing further afield to the Italian Riviera. Unsure what type of charter for Monaco to choose? Below we've highlighted the main points of difference.

How Much Does It Cost to Charter a Yacht in Monaco?

There is a multitude of charter yachts available in and around Monaco, given its prime position on the French Riviera and as one of the most popular West Mediterranean yacht charter destinations among the SuperyachtSet. With so many options available, there’s something to suit every type of budget. For convenience we have listed the average prices for motor yacht and sailing yacht charters in Monaco below;

  • For motor yacht rentals in Monaco, prices can range from $31,319 to $1.6m per week, plus expenses
  • For luxury sailing yacht rentals in Monaco, prices can go from $30,130 to $542,712 weekly, plus expenses

VAT for Yacht Charters in Monaco

As well as the Monaco yacht charter fee itself (plus any delivery or redelivery costs), you will need to pay VAT. But how much does VAT cost for yacht charters in Monaco? Below are the main points you need to consider before chartering:

  • The new rules, which came into force in 2020, state that VAT on charters starting in Italy, France and Monaco is now applied at the country's full VAT rate at the origin of the charter, i.e. the port of embarkation.
  • The standard rate of VAT is 20% for charters originating in either Monaco or France. This applies regardless of the port of disembarkation.
  • For itineraries incorporating other countries, VAT will always be applied at the rate of the country of origin. So, if the charter commences in France or Monaco the rate is 20%, if the charter begins in Italy the rate is 22%.

When is the Best Time for Monaco Yacht Charters?

The best time to visit Monaco varies on your intentions. Head out in May or September if you are looking to see and be seen at one of its world-renowned events, but avoid these months if you are after something more tranquil in nature. Opt for June and August when the temperature peaks, or October for clement weather and warm waters but fewer crowds.

Local Insight

Casino Monte Carlo Monaco
Grand Prix monaco
Monaco old town colorful
  • Monaco is eminently a walkable city, however it can be quite steep with lots of hills and flights of steps. For anyone with accessibility issues, the region offers a series of public elevators (ascenseurs publics) dotted around the various wards.
  • Port Hercules is one of the most sought-after berths globally and you will need to book months in advance if you are looking for a slip during the high season.
  • At peak times, it's worth visiting popular sites early. Shops and businesses don't tend to open until around 10am, so anytime before this tends to be relatively crowd-free.
  • The closest airport to Monaco is Nice, complete with a dedicated private jet terminal. Monaco also has a number of heliports available that guests may take advantage of.
  • When venturing through Monaco taxis are the best mode of transport, but can prove hard to come by during high season events.

How to Book Your Yacht Charter in Monaco

With its A-lister appeal, rich arts and culture and array of world-class events, Monaco is undoubtedly one of the most popular destinations in the Mediterranean. Therefore, we advise you to book your yacht charter well in advance of your trip to secure your perfect yacht on your preferred dates. If you leave it too late, the selection of yachts at your disposal will be reduced and you may not be able to explore the destinations you have your heart set on. Plus, finding dates when everyone in your charter party is available can be tricky; the longer you leave it, the more challenging it will be.
