Engines are revving, the A-list are preparing, and superyachts are beginning to descend on the French Riviera to host exclusive Monaco Grand Prix yacht charters.

With one week to go until the F1 Monaco Grand Prix 2019, the luxury yachting hub of Monaco is preparing for one of the biggest and most exciting events in the Formula One calendar.

Boasting a thrilling circuit which wraps its way around Port Hercules marina, the Monaco Grand Prix is also a regular date in the diary for the SuperyachtSet and signals the start of the Mediterranean charter season.

The event is one of just two F1 races which can be watched from the glitzy setting of a luxury yacht, and those lucky enough to step on board are placed right in the heart of the action.

Grand Prix attendees can choose to privately hire a superyacht, or indulge in a luxury yacht hospitality package.

With celebrities and superyachts already in town for the Cannes Film Festival, the Grand Prix promises to be a star-studded affair complete with decadent parties and rip-roaring spectacles.

What to expect from the Monaco Grand Prix 2019:

The Monaco Grand Prix is a notoriously demanding street circuit, often described as the ultimate test of driving skills.

It includes plenty of sharp corners, elevation changes and narrow portions that require increased accuracy and precision, as well as the unique challenge of the famous tunnel. Exiting directly alongside the marina, the tunnel puts drivers through their paces as they have to quickly adjust to the dark / light contrast.

Five fixtures in, and competition is stiff. Lewis Hamilton currently holds three wins in the 2019 Championship putting him in first place, with Valterri Bottas coming in second with two wins so far. Both are driving for Mercedes.
