Considered to be the flagship event in the international yachting calendar, the Monaco Yacht Show 2018 will welcome a sparkling presentation of around 125 magnificent superyachts, just under half of which will be new launches making their worldwide debuts.
Set in the iconic Port Hercules in the principality of Monaco, from 26th to 29th September, the upcoming event will, as always, represent the pinnacle of luxury and provide the ultimate showcase for industry influencers.
Lining up alongside the superyachts will be 580 exhibitors, ranging from the finest superyacht builders, award-winning yacht designers, luxury suppliers and influential brokerage houses to the most sought-after tenders and water toys, prestige cars, helicopters and private jet manufacturers.
One of the most beautiful yacht this year is the incomparable 50m/134ft motor yacht VERTIGE at the Monaco Yacht Show.
Bursting onto the superyacht scene earlier this year, VERTIGE quickly earned a reputation for herself as she won an award for ‘Best Exterior 38m-50m’ at the World Yacht Trophies 2017 and landed a debut at the Monaco Yacht Show later in the same month.
Stepping on board following her highly anticipated unveiling, it became immediately apparent why VERTIGE is such an exceptional motor yacht for charter purposes.
Exuding an inviting calm, the main salon of luxury yacht VERTIGE abounds in neutral tones and textures and is furnished with a range of large sofas and a separate dining area.
Working closely with Francesco Paszkowski, the Italian designer responsible for both the interior and exterior of VERTIGE, the owner reportedly insisted on having ‘permanent visual contact with the ocean’.
The fulfillment of this ambitious brief is evident in the floor-to-ceiling windows which run along the port and starboard sides, allowing guests to look out across the water whilst enjoying plenty of natural light.
What’s more, the bulwarks on the exterior have had sections removed in order to provide even greater access to views of the water.
Creating the perfect environment to socialise and unwind in, the main salon is undoubtedly the place to be once the warmth has left the exterior.
Indeed, with a large television screen, ample seating, and even a games table, parties can gather here to reflect on their day or simply enjoy each other’s company.
Though families and friends may find themselves enjoying most of their meals al fresco, the formal dining area is perfect for special occasions or a change of scenery.
The sparing use of colour used throughout both the communal and guest spaces also means that there is a cozy atmosphere which is at the same time made to feel highly spacious.
A suitably seductive alternative to the main salon, the sky lounge features its very own full-size bar and can be transformed into an intimate home cinema to keep everyone entertained with the latest blockbusters.
Aligned with the brief of non-stop ocean views, the sky lounge is flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows which can be obscured to enhance the movie watching experience.
Like the lounging area below, this space also benefits from ample seating and informal coffee tables so that guests can relax in style whilst taking in views of the ocean.
Unquestionably the most attractive aspect of the guest accommodation, the master suite boasts its very own retractable balconies to board and starboard.
Forming a seamless connection between the superyacht and the ocean, these balconies are the ideal spot for the principal charter guest to enjoy a morning coffee as well as an evening cocktail.
Besides this revolutionary addition, the master suite also includes its very own lounging space which allows the occupant to kick back in privacy whenever they desire.
Ultimately, with his and hers en-suite facilities and a generously proportioned walk-in closet, guests staying in this suite are handsomely provided for.
Making her particularly appealing to groups or multiple families, superyacht VERTIGE features an extra master cabin on the main deck.
An impressive feat for a superyacht of her size, this unusual cabin configuration has never been seen on a vessel measuring 50m before.
The remaining 3 doubles and twin cabin are located on the lower deck, and this assortment of cabins allows her to sleep up to 12 guests at one time.
Sourcing artwork from a range of traditions, the decorative flourishes found on board VERTIGE are sure to engage and impress guests.
The warm textures which are found in the communal and guest spaces also help to provide a unique character to the superyacht.
Stepping out onto the exterior from the main deck aft, guests are welcomed by an outdoor lounge with both shaded and exposed sections. Formed of two C-shaped sofas, this set-up benefits from a nearby bar to keep refreshments flowing throughout the day.
The upper deck is where the alfresco dining takes place, with a large table situated just aft of the sky lounge capable of seating all of the guests on board. Up on the sundeck, a large Jacuzzi is situated in close proximity to yet another bar, allowing guests to cool off in true style.
To summarize, VERTIGE in one word would be… Paradise!
