Yacht at Monaco Boat show 2021.


Yacht comes back to the Superyacht business at MYS 2021.


The Monaco Yacht Show is known as the most prestigious display of superyachts in the world. Set in the iconic Port Hercules, this premier, world-class event represents the pinnacle of luxury. Since 1991, the show has enjoyed the recognition and support of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.


This year it is considered as the most anticipated show in the industry since its cancellation in 2020, as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. So, last week, the eyes of the superyacht world have turned to Monaco 30th edition, running from 22-25 September 2021.


Hempel Yacht stand welcomed some of the industry most important decision makers, customers and visitors. Hempel was one of the 300 exhibitors participating on the show. Nearly 60 superyachts has exhibited, including 40 brand-new launches by some of the world’s most famous shipyards including Benetti, Feadship, Lürssen and Oceanco.


The Organizers of the show, had expected to hold a more condensed, buyer-focused version this year, leading with a “VIP Wednesday,” wanting a positively upmarket visiting experience.


There may be fewer visitors than 2019, since both yacht owners and clients looking to buy for the first time, waited until the last minute to attend the event, but that didn’t stop the show to be the most business productive ever.


Backed up by perfect weather, quality attendance, multiple launches and record demand for yachts – we are pleased that we have chosen MYS 2021 for  Hempel big “come back” to the Superyacht business with underwater protection innovative solutions.
Tino Rikkert, Yacht Director Europe:

“This was the first event for Hempel Yacht after the world has been hit by COVID-19, it was really great to finally meet some customers in real life instead of in Teams. The colleagues present on the stand have been extremely busy from 10.00 until 18.30 talking to the most important stakeholders from the industry such as applicators, surveyors, shipyards, (NB/ M&R) and even some superyacht owners showed up. Besides a general interest, we noticed an especially high interest in our sustainable below the waterline solutions like Hempel’s Silic One and Hempaguard systems”.
