The 25th Anniversary MYS during the Classic Week is the most spectacular luxury yacht show in Europe. It is traditionally hosted by Yacht Club de Monaco, situated on Quai Louis II. At the moment Port Hercule is witnessing arrival of the world’s most beautiful and fast yachts and the most renowned yachtsmen.

This year the yacht show is sponsored by UlysseNardin, a manufacturer of Swiss prestige watches.

The Classic Week is a unique experience because during these days the visitors can see (and, naturally, try) both luxury yachts and boat regatta and the whole armada of wooden boats which can go at breathtaking speed. Besides modern vessels, the Monaco guests can enjoy the view of vintage boats that took part in regattas in the last century or even earlier. Believe us, it is really exhilarating! A splendid boat show at the azure sea.

They are moored in marina so close together that you can actually walk from one to another.

Besides new yachts, the legendary Partridge also takes part in the regatta. The yacht was built as far back as the 19th century; she was restored and thenwent into the water in 1998.Since that time the yacht crew has always participated in the Monaco Classic Week.

All regattas and shows go hand in hand with parties, fairs, competitions, food and drinks tasting, competitions of the best chefs from the French Riviera restaurants, presentations of world-known brands. The biggest and most desirable party is undoubtedly the gala dinner with La Personnalité de la Mer. Yet you can find memorable events not only on the shore! Some parties on board can be really wild!
