There are just six weeks to go until arguably the most popular race on the Formula 1 Circuit takes place in the heart of Monaco and in view of some of our most luxurious yachts for charter.
There will be four days of racing, beginning on the 22nd May, but the main event, the electrifying Monaco Grand Prix will be held in the heart of the picturesque principality, nestled between France and the Mediterranean Sea, on May 25th.
For many Formula 1 fans the Monaco Grand Prix is the most exciting to watch as it is played out on the narrow roads which wind round the world’s second smallest country. The circuit also takes drivers tantalizingly close to the port of Monaco, where many of our available yachts for charter are berthed at this busy time of year.
Over the next month Monaco will be transformed into a daring race track with stands currently being erected for thousands of spectators who come to Monaco annually to watch the race live. Meanwhile, tens of millions more will be preparing to catch the start of the race on television sets across the globe.
Yet undoubtedly the best place from which to watch the 260 kilometre long race is from the deck of a luxury yacht in the glamorous Port Hercules, where you would be in the shadow of the majestic Rock where the Prince’s Palace grandly sits.
With a glass of champagne in hand and ear muffs firmly in place (though perhaps not so necessary this season), it is a once in a lifetime experience to witness the drivers tear around the track a total of 78 times from the teak deck and supreme comfort of a superyacht.
