Alberto Amico, president of Amico & Co.
“Here in Monaco we’ve had confirmation of the fact that the service sector dedicated to yachts – namely refits, marinas, suppliers and agencies are increasingly organized to expand which entails coordinated offers and calls for more infrastructures and services”.
Alberto Galassi, Chief Executive - Ferretti Group
“MYS has reflected the over 30 metre yacht market’s prospects fully, exactly where, our group’s orders increased by 60% from 2015 to 2016. CRN’S 74 metre “Cloud 9” debuted here in Monte Carlo where we showed results and programmes pertaining to the large yachts’ segment – with special reference to the following brands Riva, Pershing, Custom Line, and CRN which were obviously built at the Ancona Super Yacht yard”.
Michele Gavino, Chief Executive - Baglietto
“The MYS, as the preceding ones in Cannes and Genoa have provided clear signs the market is recovering and there’s been more optimism which makes us hope for a better more profitable coming year. The numbers are comforting and I am convinced that Italy will know how to deliver a great response to strong foreign competition”.
Theo Hooning, Secretary General Sybass, Superyacht Builder Association
“The companies adhering to our association represent about 50% of the overall production of over 40 metre yachts and in the world at least for the moment, there’s only one event that can fully satisfy exhibitors needs: The Monaco Yacht Show”.
Mauro Pellegrini, Videoworks Owner
“Here at the MYS, technological novelties in terms of electronics and accessories have become exceptionally important, inasmuch as they effectively concur in making a real difference between one yacht and another. As Videoworks, in addition to our own stand we’ve had the pleasure of being present with our products installed into ten large superyachts”.
Giovanna Vitelli, vice president - Gruppo Azimut Benetti
“After the yacht shows at the beginning of the season, we’ve had confirmation of the market’s recovery here at the MYS and of our absolute leadership in the motor yacht sector. The group has to date acquired 40% more orders than last year at the same time; Benetti has signed six orders for as many mega yachts in ten weeks and others are being finalised; in addition to this the group has acquired the total ownership of Fraser’s capital which is the world’s largest mega yachts service provider in the world”.
