SuperYacht World - - Editorial -

When you first feast your eyes on the Monaco Yacht Show from up on the hill – one of life’s more in­spir­ing sights – you’re faced with a very press­ing prob­lem: where on earth to be­gin? I’m hope­ful our pre­view of this year’s show, which starts on page 10, will be a good place. It’s al­ways a very pleas­ing sum­mer ex­er­cise in the Su­pery­acht World of­fice to round up the stun­ning new yachts (page 13), the dra­matic con­cepts (page 30) and the bril­liant bro­ker­age yachts (page 48) that are be­ing fet­tled for the show. The cold hard num­bers are im­pres­sive enough, but the real causes for cel­e­bra­tion are the vi­sion of the own­ers and the myr­iad ex­am­ples of cre­ative and tech­no­log­i­cal so­lu­tions. We’ve been on board two of the stars of this year’s show – Heesen’s 70-me­tre Galac­tica Su­per Nova (page 62) and Bagli­etto’s 44-me­tre Uni­corn (page 90), both of which pack in a host of cre­ative fea­tures.

Elsewhere we’ve been look­ing back at the early Monaco Yacht Shows through the eyes of the peo­ple who were there (page 56), and sam­pling the Prin­ci­pal­ity dur­ing the Fead­ship Her­itage Fleet and the F1 GP week­ends (page 82). If this sounds a touch Monaco-cen­tric, that’s be­cause for four days at the end of Septem­ber, Monaco is the cen­tre of the su­pery­acht uni­verse.
