Monaco Yacht Show 2016 Superyachts

Once again the Monaco Yacht Show, which is held in the south of France each summer, did not disappoint. As usual, it was a stunning array of some of the most innovative and advanced sail and power boats from the world’s top designers and builders. Each year the show seems to outdo itself by featuring the very best of the best when it comes to luxury and styling. There was so much gold, chrome, stainless steel and glass glittering in the sun that it was hard to choose which boats to visit and like previous shows there were simply too many yachts to visit them all. The yachts we did visit reflect a growing trend toward more sophistication, opulence and comfort for discerning owners.

Vendee Globe 2016

It’s called the Vendée Globe because Vendée is the region in Western France that back in 1989 got behind the idea of funding a new around-the-world yacht race that would start from Les Sables d’Olonne, a seaside town that is packed with tourists in summer but bleak and empty later in the year. The Town Fathers thought that this new race would help drive tourism to the region at a time when wind driven rain and cold temperatures are the order of the day. They had no idea just how successful it would become. Not only does the race attract over a million visitors leading up to the start, but the Vendée Globe had become one of the preeminent offshore ocean races in the world.
