At the end of May, following hot on the heels of the Cannes Film Festival, the international jet set will flock to Monaco. The Principality’s most famous annual event, the F1 Monaco Grand Prix, will take place and garner the attention of the world’s media over the weekend of 25th-28th May 2017. The timing of these two prestigious events makes it possible to plan a glamorous Mediterranean yacht charter along the Riviera.
Chartering a luxury superyacht is the perfect way to immerse yourself into the glamour of the French Riviera. All the best celebrations are held on luxury yachts in the ports, with the international jet set celebrating in ostentatious style. Trackside seats such a rare commodity, the opportunity to view the action from the comfort of a luxury superyacht is the best way to witness the action. Organising a Monaco yacht charter means being at the heart of the action and smelling the burning rubber from F1 cars in Monaco as they zoom past in a blur.
Available for charter at the Monaco Grand Prix 2017 is the beautiful M/Y JAJARO. The 31m planing motor yacht is the result of the combined efforts and craftsmanship of architect Luca Dini and Tecnomar shipyard. The refined yacht was built in 2009 and accommodates up to 8 guests across 4 cabins. Her sleek lines cut an attractive silhouette on the Turquoise waters of the Riviera. She offers wide outdoor spaces with a sofa bow and a large aft deck with dining table. Accessing the sea is easy and convenient and the swim platform is connected with the storage locker where the dinghy, water games and diving equipment are stored. There is also a PADI diving instructor on board, who can provide courses and underwater cameras to capture your diving experience.
The 25-metre M/Y OCTAVIA is also available for charter at the Grand Prix. She combines sporty lines with a chic appearance and has a large sun deck that is ideal for catching the action at the Grand Prix. She was built by Sunseeker in 2006, but has recently undergone a complete refit and is in mint condition. All cabins are en suite with wifi connection and satellite TV channels on SKY, and her her master cabin has a king size bed and walk-in wardrobes. A crew of three is on hand to cater to up to 8 guests.
M/Y MAYAMA is a sleek 37-metre superyacht built by Couach in 2010. Previously named ‘Sun Shine’, she cuts a fine figure on the waves and her zero speed stabilisers increasing onboard comfort at anchor in case those waves are rough. She has 5 sumptuous cabins to accommodate 10 guests and space for a professional crew of six. MAYAMA has a Jacuzzi on the spacious flybridge and comes with an extensive collection of water toys.
We also have a wonderful Heesen build, M/Y MON PLAISIR, available for the Grand Prix. This magnificent superyacht was built in 2008 and the owner invested significant sums of money over the initial budget to ensure the yacht was of the finest quality. She is the only steel hulled displacement 47m Heesen available to charter currently on the market. MON PLAISIR can accommodate 10 guests and 9 crew in her spacious interior. She is decked out with sterling silver, Elmo leather and Calacatta marble hardware and panel trimmings, and American walnut wooden flooring. She also comes with a huge selection of tenders and water toys.
These yachts offer a stylish and luxurious way to celebrate the Riviera’s most high-profile event. They can also be enjoyed as a broader French Riviera yacht charter to explore the region further; perhaps visiting Eze, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and Villefranche-sur-Mer, before returning to port to celebrate with friends and family.
