September 28th marked the official end of summer and start of fall with the kick off of the Monaco Yacht Show!
With 580 exhibitors, 125 super yachts including 66m Okto and 70m Martha Ann, this show is slated as one of largest and most anticipated shows of the year.
The finest new superyacht and best interior design award of the show went to M/Y Galactica Super Nova, a 70m Heeson build. Built and delivered in 2016, she was build in only 41 months. With her fast displacement hull, she can reach speeds of 30 knots. She boasts 2 MTU wing engines and a third, central engine with a Rolls Royce booster water jet. It can go from 0-30 knots in just 75 seconds... Stews, make sure your interior is packed!
The exterior design award went to S/Y Sybaris, a 70m yacht also delivered earlier this year. She is the second largest sailing yacht delivered by the same shipyard to deliver the Maltese Falcon.
The MYS/RINA award given for eco-friendliness, went to M/Y Genesi which is still for sale for a mere €26.5 million.
Enjoy the show!
