Monaco is the most luxurious and glamorous Principality in the world. So you want to arrive in style, right?  I was lucky enough to attend the Monaco Yacht Show this year! I started thinking about the best ways for my readers to arrive in Monaco whether it be for the Yacht Show, Grand Prix or other events.

A chauffeured Limousine is definitely a good idea! I experienced  arriving in Monaco, chauffeur driven in a beautiful Audi A8L with The Driver Company. http://thedriverco.com

Surely the ultimate in Limousine luxury! Here I am pictured below with driver Jonathan who was so professional.  The Audi A8L is the ultimate driving experience, but you can choose from a range of the best limousines.

Monaco is small and can be difficult to navigate around and park during big events such as Monaco Yacht Show which is held every September or Monaco Grand Prix.  A luxury car and driver will take the stress out of your journey, especially with such a friendly company as The Driver Co.

The Monaco Yacht show hosts the best events and parties, which means limitless Champagne and fine wine.  Another very good reason to get a car and driver, no drink driving worries!  I would love to arrive at The Monaco Yacht Show in this magnificent car next year.

Summertime is hectic all along the riviera from Monaco to Saint Tropez, so why not take a car and driver from The Driver Company.  They are friendly, really helpful and speak english.  Take a look at their website or call on +33(0)785053365

MONACO YACHT SHOW 2017:

The Monaco Yacht Show was so action packed with events and parties, I didn’t get time to take up an invitation to arrive in style by Helicopter!  That will have to wait for my next visit to the Principality and I will share with you very soon!

However, I did have time to check out the Bell 429 Helicopter brought over just for the Yacht Show.  If you are looking for a really magnificent Heli (just look at the colour!) with an amazing safety record, exceptional speed, seats 7 plus the pilot, and looks super chic then look no further.  Lets just say that if you need to ask the price, you can’t afford it as the old adage goes! http://bellhelicopter.com

The Monaco Yacht Show isn’t just about the most magnificent yachts in the world.  You can find so many super luxe  things to check out and even buy, if you are lucky enough!  While we are thinking about arriving in style, how about a Lamborghini or even your own Submarine!  Top that!  I really want a Lamborghini now, so much nicer and more comfortable than they were in the old days.

How to arrive in Monte Carlo Diva style? The ultimate way to arrive next year would be to buy your own yacht!  Read my Monaco Yacht Show 2017 blog, I have chosen the best ones especially for you! Read all about M/Y Vertige pictured above on my Yacht Show blog. See you at Monaco Yacht Show next year.  Monaco Yacht Show

Monaco is a very Chic and glamorous Principality, attracting rich, successful beautiful people from all over the world.  I think everyone knows this!  It is not news.  BUT…. there is one week a year when Monte Carlo steps up a gear, even by its own super luxe standards!  This is for the Monaco Yacht Show, surely the jewel in the crown of the yachting world.

Wall to wall Superyachts are squeezed into the harbour, including 125 Superyachts and a total value of an incredible 2.5 billion euros  My villa overlooks the sea and I can see hundreds of the worlds most expensive yachts from my window.  It is a very special time of year here in Monaco.  If you are looking to buy one of the best and most exclusive yachts, there is no other place to be in the world. This is not an exaggeration!

What a week!  I need a holiday immediately after the Yacht Show because it is such an exciting a whirlwind of the best parties and yacht related events.

I spent the week exploring the most beautiful Superyachts.  The most impressive thing I take away with me is the passion, love and dedication these talented yacht designer, architects, companies have for their craft.

The designs are exquisite and the smallest detail is absolutely perfect and built with love and attention to detail.  Every little thing hand made and absolute perfection.

The show includes everything imaginable that is yacht related.  From tenders and toys to furnishings, and deck furniture exquisite crystal lights, plates ornaments the list just goes on and on.

I am going to write about my three favourite yachts because it is impossible to write about all the lovely yachts I have seen!  All three are Italian built yachts, always imbued with Italian elegance, chic and understated effortless perfection.  The clean lines of the yachts are mirrored with the interior design of modern simplicity.

These yachts are pure class in every respect.  A sailing yacht and two motor yachts – not the largest or most expensive at the show but perfection in every detail!

M/Y AURORA:

Built by Rossinavi, Italy’s only family owned shipyard entirely bespoke and custom built.  Designed with the the owners love of sport and adventure in mind, together with a luxurious and modern interior living space.  Aurora is 49 metres long. Max speed 21 knots!  I totally fell in love on the spot.

Introduced to the world at Monaco Yacht Show 2017.  Everything is handmade and the attention to detail incredible.  The stunning marble in the bathroom for example and the sink unit carved from one piece of marble. What is not to love?

S/Y SEVEN by Perini Navi:

My favourite Sailing Yacht is a 60 metre ketch S/Y Seven by Perini Navi, another Italian Yacht company.

S/Y Seven is Italian made,designed with an Italian designer, interior designer (who previously worked with Giorgio Armani) and absolutely everything made in Italy.  I just love this perfect yacht, it is indeed a work of art!

MY: VERTIGE by Tankoa

Another favourite Yacht was M/Y Vertige 50 metres pictured below from boutique Italian shipyard Tankoa. Introduced to the world at Monaco after completing her first Charter season.  Who would like to charter this beauty?   Lots of great toys onboard including 2 huge jet skis and a very cool tender.

Again, I have chosen this yacht as a favourite because i love the cool, clean, modern lines, attention to detail and super chic interiors which are comfortable, minimalist and classy.

PHOTO: Aboard M/Y VERTIGE 

M/Y Vertige is feels very spacious with big open spaces and a lot of natural light.  I loved every detail and would not change a thing!  What do you think of my three favourites? Let me know!
