Gibraltar took pride-of-place as one of the 600 exhibitors at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show. The Gibraltar Port Authority and the Gibraltar Maritime Administration’s Yacht Registry hosted a stand with the intention of showcasing the Rock.
The yacht show is iconic and is the benchmark that other events in the marine industry aspire to. It brings together superyacht builders, award-winning yacht designers, luxury suppliers, and influential brokerage houses. It also acts as a showcase for the most sought-after water toys, prestige cars, helicopter and private jet manufacturers.
CEO and Captain of the Port, Manuel Tirado, commented that “this event is the perfect platform to showcase Gibraltar’s growing profile within the superyacht industry.”
Minister for the Port and Maritime Affairs, the Hon Gilbert Licudi QC MP, added that “HM Government of Gibraltar is working hand in hand with the private sector to promote superyacht and megayacht calls to Gibraltar and to further grow our services in this industry. We continue to see the fruits of this hard work with some of the world’s best known luxury yachts continuously visiting the Rock over the last couple of years.”
Also present at the show were representatives from GBZ Media Limited, publisher of Gibraltar Insight and the Superyacht Owners’ Guide (SYOG).
