Monaco Yacht Show Vs MYBA Selection
Burgess stand at the MYS in 2008
Another new yacht show ?
As you probably know, the 19th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) is being held from September 23 to 26, 2009 in the Principality of Monaco.
However, it seems that the MYBA members (Mediterranean Yacht Broker Association) have decided to run a concurrent yacht show for three days from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th September.
The "MYBA yachts" will anchor in the Rade de Saint Hospice, five miles west of Monaco Port Hercule and potential buyers will be ferried by private tender from the official Monaco show to the MYBA Selection fleet.
Major brokerage companies (Burgess, Camper & Nicholsons International, Edmiston & Company, Fraser Yachts...) are all members of the MYBA.
A MYBA broker added that in 2008, yacht owners were often unable to secure one of the oversubscribed berths...and some were also unwilling to pay the high entrance fees required at the MYS.
However, the 19th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show is nonetheless fully booked up and the yacht list will be on-line in July 2009.
