Virtual visits

Seen as the safest bubble for travel by far, the region’s ultra-rich take to the sea to satisfy their hunger for adventure whilst maintaining complete control of their luxurious environment. Illustrating this trend, Burgess—a brokerage firm based in Monaco and in Singapore—achieved an industry record of five superyacht transactions (all above 40 meters) in Asia in 2021 alone, reaching pre-pandemic sales records.

Meanwhile in Monaco, one event is returning for its 30th edition. The Monaco Yacht Show is set to showcase the world’s largest collection of 80 super- and mega-yachts (averaging a length of 54 meters), and 32 world-first launches available for purchase or charter in one place.

Happening from September 22 to 25, the world’s leading Superyacht show also launches its first-ever digital exhibit, open to yachting enthusiasts in Asia who are unable to attend the event in-person.

In addition to tailor-made experiences such as virtual visits and 360-tours onboard, the virtual exhibit will also grant one-on-one access to the industry’s top brokers and builders.
