The must-see yachts at anchor at the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show

By Katia Damborsky   18 September 2019

Alongside the 120-strong fleet of yachts lined up in Port Hercules, a selection of luxury yachts will be available for viewings opposite the bay of Monaco

As ever, the Monaco Yacht Show has brought an impressive fleet of superyachts to the bay of Port Hercules for the 2019 edition of the yacht show.

Considered the most prestigious event in the superyacht calendar, 2019 will see 120 yachts lined up in the marina and a further 99 superyachts available for private viewings out at anchor in the French Riviera. 

Below, we're shining the spotlight on all the must-see superyachts at anchor at the show.

136m/446ft motor yacht 'Flying Fox'

Builder: Lurssen

As one of the most exciting launches of 2019 and the world's largest yacht publicly available for charter, superyacht Flying Fox will be creating plenty of buzz in Monaco.

Her Espen Oeino-designed exteriors will be hard to miss at the show, and she is expected to be anchored in close proximity to Port Hercules to allow easy for tender transfers. 

Available to view by appointment only, those who have the privilege of stepping on board will be able to  admire her fresh Mark Berryman-designed interiors and stand-out amenities including a huge aft deck pool and state-of-the-art spa area. 

126m/414ft motor yacht OCTOPUS

Builder: Lurssen 

A yacht shrouded in secrecy, superyact OCTOPUS has recently been made available for sale. Prospective buyers will be keen to take a tour around the motor yacht, which will be out at anchor for the duration of the show.

She was launched in 2003 and freshly refitted this year. Interior styling comes from Johathan Quinn Barnett, with exterior styling by Espen Oeino.

88.8m/291ft motor yacht 'Illusion Plus'

Builder: Pride Mega Yachts

Illusion Plus made her maiden voyage to the Monaco Yacht Show last year, and was the subject of much acclaim as the largest yacht ever to be built in Asia.

She is back again this year to show off her distinctive exteriors and elegant interiors, which have a refined and pared-back theme offset by luxurious touches.

88.5m/290ft luxury yacht BARBARA

Builder: Oceanco

2017-built motor yacht BARBARA will also be out at anchor during the Monaco Yacht Show. A popular charter platform, she is worth seeing to admire her Sam Sorgiovanni styling on both her interior and exterior. 

On-board highlights include an impressive glass and metal sculpture entwined around the centre of the stairwell, as well as a sundeck helipad which has the capacity to turn into a cinema thanks to a drop-down ceiling.

88m/289ft 'Maltese Falcon'

Builder: Perini Navi

Instantly recognisable thanks to her distinctive DynaRig mast design, 'Maltese Falcon' will be available for viewings during the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show.

She was launched by Perini Navi in 2006, but has fast become an iconic yacht which you shouldn't miss seeing at the show.

85m/280ft motor yacht SUNRAYS

Builder: Oceanco

Oceanco's 2010 launch superyacht SUNRAYS has yet to appear in show at the Monaco Yacht Show, but she has attended at anchor for the last two consecutive years.

She will be easy to identify on account of her sky-blue hull, and will be showing off her Terence-Disdale designed interiors to anyone who steps on board for a tour.
