Monaco Yacht Show 2016 started on September 28 and ended on October 1st. It was as astonishing as ever, and I don’t want to present it again as I usually do with other yacht shows, because this was one of the most glamorous yachts reunion this year so far. Nineteen beautiful sailing yachts have been admired by the lucky visitors. The tickets were €150 per person per day, or a four days ticket with €400 per person.

Y.Co is a global brokerage and management company established in Monaco. They came with two sailing yachts here, “Alejandra” and “Panthalassa”. I have to confess that “Alejandra” is one of the classiest sailing yachts I have ever seen.
