The Yachts Everybody Can’t Wait to see
One of the most celebrated events in the sailing world is the annual Monaco Yacht Show. This year it is due to take place at the horseshoe-shaped harbor of Monte Carlos from the 28th of September until the 1st of October. For four days over 30,000 sailing enthusiasts will explore the docks to see the world’s latest and greatest super-yachts, the trends in technology and the breath-taking interiors. In a highly competitive industry, the next-generation super-yachts are pushing the boundaries of yachting in exciting new directions. Here are ten of the most highly anticipated super-yachts of the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show.
1. Benetti’s FB264

2. Admiral’s Quinta Essentia
The largest motor yacht ever launched by Admiral, the Quinta Essentia holds a greener than ever machine in a progressive profile. Vibration and noise levels are minimal with one of the most silent and fuel-efficient systems in the world.
