A favourite port of call for owners and their superyachts and a base for numerous designers and the major brokers, the Principality of Monaco has always been an exclusive destination. Uniting as it does the most prestigious private yachts in the world under its flag the Yacht Club occupies a unique position in the Luxury Yachting world.


Following in the wake of actions undertaken within “La Belle Classe Tradition”, HSH Prince Albert II wished to extend the expertise and concept to the Luxury Yachting sector. As a result, in June 2008 the Yacht Club de Monaco created “La Belle Classe Superyachts”, a label to unite all those involved in Yachting.

Its aim: to promote technological innovation in the ongoing quest to improve boats; to safeguard the environment and the sea (by encouraging a responsible attitude, use of new or existing innovative techniques, etc); and to have respect for etiquette (crew and owner dress code, courtesy and solidarity rules among members of “La Belle Classe”).

With “La Belle Classe Superyachts”, the Yacht Club de Monaco wants to be in a position to welcome, assist and raise awareness among 40m-plus yacht owners of our maritime culture, and to encourage yachting professionals to adopt a philosophy which is respectful of the environment.
