Why you should exhibit your yacht at the Monaco Yacht Show 2024 with Edmiston

Thinking about selling or chartering your yacht? The Monaco Yacht Show is the best placed maritime industry event to promote your yacht to genuine buyers.

Set in Port Hercule from the 25th – 30th of September 2024, the Monaco Yacht Show welcomes over 30,000 visitors and showcases the most exclusive and luxurious yachts available on the market for both sale and charter. Since its launch in 1991, the Monaco Yacht Show has achieved the prestigious status of being the premier international gathering of superyachts and maritime professionals.

“Monaco is the epicentre of yachting and the MYS is the most highly regarded show for genuine buyers and yacht owners.” Chief Executive, Jamie Edmiston.

With our exemplary sales record and prominent presence within the show through our berths and activations, Edmiston provides the best shop window in the world for well informed and serious yacht buyers.

Edmiston have sold 50% of yachts they’ve displayed

Our results speak for itself. We have sold an average of 50% of the yachts that have been exhibited with us in Monaco over the past several years cementing our position as the market leader.
Whilst not all sales take place at the show itself, the MYS provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase your yacht.

Alex Koersvelt, Edmiston’s Commercial Director, says: “it’s what we do after the show that’s important. Selling a yacht can be a long process, but not always. We previously exhibited the 60m Oceanco HELIOS and closed the deal within 30 days of the show.”

Last year Edmiston sold 50m Heesen MY LOYALTY just 122 days following the MYS.

Bringing yachts to life

We recognise that purchasing or chartering a yacht is an emotional investment, so our priority is to ensure you make the right decisions. With yachts all within the same vicinity, it’s an opportunity to view a significant number of yachts all in one place which otherwise you may have to travel the globe to achieve.

MYS not only introduces you to new yachts, but it also provides context to the lifestyle. Having you meet the crew, visualise the space and really understand what being onboard feels like helps finalise the sale or charter.

Alex Koersvelt says, “we had a client come to the show to view a sailing yacht, with no desire to charter a motor yacht. Once onboard they could see the value of motor and walked away converted.”

By building long standing relationships and really understanding our client’s needs and desires we make recommendations that serve their lifestyle, ensuring they enjoy the very best that luxury yachting can offer, in whatever capacity that may be.

As with all of Edmiston’s brand touchpoints, we provide you with an exceptional show experience that reflects the very essence of luxury yachting.

We have a strong presence throughout the show, including two prime locations to enjoy the day at. This year will be no exception, with Edmiston poised to deliver an exclusive event for sellers, buyers and charterers.

As part of our VIP service, we offer many privileges, providing you with the full Edmiston experience, including access to the world’s most prestigious yachts, invitations to exclusive events, concierge lunch and dinner reservations, private car and tender service, and our team of experts at your disposal.

Alex Koersvelt says: “we run a really great show, and I think that every client who we host leaves very happy with how they’ve been looked after. One of our main objectives with the Monaco Yacht Show is to ensure every aspect of our clients experience is enjoyable.”
