Since its creation in 2005, at the instigation of HSH Prince Albert II, President of the Yacht Club de Monaco, “La Belle Classe Tradition” has proved its determination to develop traditional yachting, by uniting owners behind a Charter to defend three fundamental values:


–    preservation of our maritime heritage and its yachts

–    respect for naval etiquette

–    protection of the sea and the environment   The aim of the label is to unite owners around its values and to promote top quality seamanship and craftsmanship in order to pass on to future generations a priceless cultural heritage and a certain “art de vivre la mer”.

Today, “La Belle Classe” has over sixty owners of traditional yachts, among which are some of the world’s most prestigious vessels, as well as famous personalities from the Yachting world. All have affirmed their commitment to the label’s values by signing the “La Belle Classe” charter, a genuine moral commitment.
