The Monaco Yacht Show, now in its 28th year, is sched­uled Septem­ber 26-29. This year the show will fea­ture some 125 su­pery­achts rep­re­sent­ing a com­bined price tag of ap­prox­i­mately $3.9 bil­lion. At least 60 of the yachts are less than two years old. Their av­er­age length is 164 feet (50 me­ters). Ap­prox­i­mately 590 ex­hibitors from 38 coun­tries have signed up to be on hand.
