Elevate your race weekend with these exclusive Monaco F1 yacht packages

For spectators, the Monaco Grand Prix is the most exciting race of the F1 season, not least because it has the smallest grid and its circuit is notoriously narrow and tricky, making it a gripping experience watching them careen along the old roads.

Many of Monaco’s luxurious venues and businesses offer fabulous F1 packages for those wanting to experience the very best of Monaco Grand Prix hospitality. With a Monaco F1 yacht package, you can combine VIP passes with meets and greets with F1 legends, seats at the best tables in town, even supercar tours so you can see what it’s like to drive a wildly powerful car in this part of the world yourself.

To find out about the Paddock Club’s F1 yacht package, speak to your superyacht broker, who can arrange everything for you.
