For those unfamiliar with the splendors of fine boating displays, the Monaco Yacht Show is the largest exhibition of superyachts in the world. Each year, thousands gather at Monaco's Port Hercules to admire, tour and purchase some of the most lavish (and expensive) yachts that money can buy. The 2016 show, which runs tomorrow through Saturday, will display 125 superyachts from the top boating brokerages in Europe, the United States and beyond.
Camper & Nicholsons, a brokerage known to be the oldest leisure marine company in the world, is bringing 17 one-of-a-kind yachts to Port Hercules. The brokerage acquires listings from many of the top global shipyards and offers a diverse range of vessels, from sailing yachts (that cost a mere $1.7 million) to superyachts with interiors that could rival the opulence of a Beverly Hills mansion. Some of these boats, such as Camper & Nicholsons' featured listing, a superyacht called Icon, sell for upwards of $60 million.
So if you want to know what it's like to sail the seven seas in utmost style and luxury, check out some of Camper & Nicholsons' ultra-luxe listings on display at the Monaco Yacht Show.
