Charter Yachts gather for Monaco F1 Grand Prix

By Steph Loseby   24 May 2023

Getting ready for all the thrill and action of the Monaco F1 Grand Prix 2023, a dazzling fleet of 122 luxury superyachts are gathering in Port Hercules, Monaco ahead of the 80th edition of the world-famous street circuit race through Monte Carlo.

Heralding the start of the Mediterranean summer season, the Cannes Film Festival began on May 16 and as the glamorous event draws to a close, the high-profile superyachts in town for the occasion begin migrating eastwards along the coast, making their way to Monaco in time for the next big date on the event calendar: the Monaco F1 Grand Prix

Taking place across four days from Thursday 25 - Sunday 28 May, the race brings the South of France alive and promises to be a thrilling spectacle for avid Formula 1 fans, with plenty of VIP social events for the SuperyachtSet to enjoy.

Demand for the Formula One event has proved so popular that every berth in the glamorous Port d’Hercules has been filled weeks ago, with only a few exclusive F1 hospitality packages up for grabs for those wishing to attend.

Things have changed this year as Formula One has taken control of who issues the berths, and with the number of applications massively outweighing the number of spots available for trackside viewing, only a selection of luxury yachts under 55m were lucky enough to secure a prized berth. 

As normal, the larger yachts of around 70m are berthed at the T-Dock whilst additional larger superyachts are berthed in Zone 2. This area provides charter guests with a much greater degree of privacy, yet they will find they are still surrounded by the electric atmosphere of the event. 

We take a look at some of the most exciting superyachts available for charter at this year’s Monaco Grand Prix.


The largest superyacht charter to soak up the atmosphere of this year’s Monaco Grand Prix is the 126m (414ft) yacht OCTOPUS. Bertherd further out of the port in Zone 2, charter guests onboard this Lürssen yacht will be able to experience the thrills of the race in total comfort and privacy.

Boasting a large aft swimming pool surrounded by loungers and a full cocktail bar, a cinema suite and superb wellness amenities, the luxury expedition yacht provides guests with an abundance of spacious areas to chill out and relax as they enjoy the race weekend. 


Situated along the T-Dock, alongside an array of larger 70m superyachts, is the 73m (239ft) Lurssen yacht CORAL OCEAN. Home to a voluminous sundeck replete with a pool, bar and plenty of seating, guests can enjoy total outdoor living perfection as they sip cocktails, lounge in the luxe seating area and watch tenders whizz by with show-goers. 

Additional yacht highlights include her large beach club and extensive spa facilities which guests can make the most out of during the race weekend. With a crew of 22 on hand to provide outstanding service onboard, superyacht CORAL OCEAN is the ultimate yacht for any luxury yacht charter vacation or event. 


Also berthed along the T-Dock, the iconic 71m (239ft) charter yacht TITANIA is just moments away from the action. Conceived by industry-leading designers, superyacht TITANIA is a firm favorite among her guests and an enduring charter icon.

Fusing opulent design with an effortless indoor-outdoor lifestyle and a wealth of modern amenities, the motor yacht is perfectly suited to entertaining on a grand scale and makes a great platform on which to host event charters. Home to an expansive beach club, a full-beam observation lounge and a well-appointed sundeck, there is a wealth of space across her four decks in which guests can relax, dine and socialize, all while soaking up the heady atmosphere.


Bagging a spot trackside in Zone 1, the 54m (176ft) PERSEFONI I is in prime position for the race. Refitted in 2021, the Admiral Yachts superyacht is in turnkey condition to host charter guests at the adrenalin-fuelled Monaco Grand Prix and more Mediterranean yacht charter vacations this summer.

For those looking for more privacy during the race weekend, this can be found on her vast upper deck, which features an additional Jacuzzi, full bar and observation lounge, as well as a wealth of convivial social spaces and dining options.


Situated trackside on the straight in Zone 1, the 44m (146ft) charter yacht PANDION PEARL is berthed at an unbeatable location for witnessing the heart-stopping action of the race.

Accompanied by exceptional hospitality provided by Captain Jean-Marc and his dedicated crew, the luxurious Sanlorenzo yacht offers guests a sweeping selection of sumptuous living areas laid out invitingly to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere onboard. Combining sophistication and elegance, the yacht is the perfect platform to enjoy the electrified atmosphere from the comfort and ease of a trackside berth. 

Also soaking up the social atmosphere in Monaco this weekend is the 60m (196ft) SCOTT FREE and the 55m (180ft) superyacht LOON who are ready to enjoy the excitement of this year's Grand Prix.
