From Design To Delivery (Case Study)

The megayacht Viva will be one of the most awaited world premieres at the 2021 Monaco Yacht Show. The team from the Dutch shipyard Feadship presents all the key stages in the construction of this impressive 94-metre luxury vessel, which has been delivered to her owner this year.

Health Measures at the 2021 MYS

The organisers of the Monaco Yacht Show have published the sanitary measures to be applied on the show grounds, in compliance with the Government of Monaco’s hygiene regulations and the reinforced health safety standards set forth by the AllSecure program, which was created by Informa, the group that owns the Show.

These measures concern anyone looking to access the MYS site: visitors and exhibitors during the four days of the show (September 22-25), as well as all technical teams and service providers for as long as exhibiting companies are still on site, i.e. from set-up to disassembly (September 13 to 29). 

Reinforced health measures

In addition to the measures now in place at any event or location welcoming the public (barrier gestures, masks, sanitizing gel available throughout the exhibition), the MYS will also be reinforcing the cleaning protocol for the exhibition’s common areas and will disinfect the ventilation and air-conditioning systems daily.

How to access the 2021 MYS

From September 22 to 25, visitors will have to wear a mask and present a health pass for each day of their visit.

Step 1 – Sanitary check: Present your sanitary pass and a piece of ID at the control points located near the show’s entrances. A “health pass” bracelet will be issued for the day. The bracelet allows you to enter and exit the exhibition without having to present your pass each time.

Step 2 – Accessing the exhibition : Present your “health pass” bracelet and your MYS ticket to collect your visitor’s badge at one of the entrances.

Where can visitors get their PCR or antigen test done?

A list of Monaco pharmacies and medical analysis laboratories is available on the MYS website.

Detailed health measures are available here.

The 2021 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show will be held from September 22 to 25 and will mark the return of the entire yachting industry to one of the most anticipated international superyacht shows of the year.
This year, organisers have maintained the show’s usual high standards, with booths hosting as many as 350 exhibiting companies from across the industry. On board, large yacht owners and charter companies will be exhibiting a collection of 80 superyachts, including 32 world premieres, with an average (and record!) size of 54 metres in length.

A complete vaccination:

For other vaccines, 7 days after the 2nd dose or single dose for those who have had Covid-19.
