FunAir Loungers beach set up

Unforgettable Beach Days with FunAir at Monaco Yacht Show

In addition to the adrenaline pumping FunAir Yacht Slides, Climbing Walls and other superyacht toys built for action and adventure, FunAir also know exactly how to relax….. In partnership with the beach days theme at the official Captains and Crew Lounge at Monaco Yacht Show this year, FunAir will be launching three new to market products, perfect for an unforgettable superyacht beach experience.

Outside the Lounge on Quay Louis II visitors will be able to find the new Twin Escape floating on the water. Two detachable beach loungers sit on a stable platform that can float out in the shallows to enhance any beach excursion. The Twin Escape is 3.5m x 3m when deployed and comes with their patented Sea Stairs that help you elegantly step right out of the water and onto the relaxing Escape. Perfect for sunbathing, enjoying time with friends, or perhaps a private chat with drinks out on the ocean.

FunAir Twin Escape

If you like to feel the sand between your toes then you can detach the loungers for beach use and pair them with the second new MYS products launch; the Wave Lounger. FunAir have redesigned their superyacht beach lounger and created a unique, ergonomic flow that is stylish, eye-catching and comfortable. The inflatable Wave Loungers take just a couple of minutes to inflate and deflate, and allow crew to pack multiple loungers on even the smallest tender, making beach set up for larger groups quick and easy. The Wave Loungers can be colour customised and have optional luxury fitted covers available through a FunAir partner. They weigh just 10kg and are around 2.2m long and 85cm wide.

FunAir Wave Loungers

For the starfish amongst you the third product launching at MYS gives you even more space to sit back and beach out. The FunAir Daybed is a double width inflatable beach lounger that can accommodate couples in love, a hoard of kids or give those who like to sunbathe in style all the space they need to stretch out and starfish.

FunAir Inflatable Loungers beach set up

The day bed is an easy to lift 17kg and is 230cm long and 158cm wide. Also available in custom colours and with luxury fitted covers. The Wave loungers and Daybed will be on display outside the Captain and Crew Lounge during Monaco Yacht Show on the dock next to the on-water Twin Escape.

Visitors to the show are invited to come and try out the beach set up for themselves and to experience what total beach comfort really feels like. Captains and crew can also chill out on two loungers stationed upstairs in the private crew lounge where they will be complimenting the interior beach themed space.

Luxury Cars at The Monaco Yacht Show 2018

For the Monaco Yacht Show 2018 the third edition of the Car Deck exhibition is once again set to showcase the very best in tailor-made, luxury cars, customised to the requirements and tastes of their owners, in the same way the superyachts are.

From September 26th to 29th, show visitors, owners and lovers of superyachts and exquisite machinery will have the opportunity to admire a brand-new range of luxury vehicles on display on the Car Deck of the Monaco Yacht Show. This year the MYS has joined forces with manufacturers specializing in tailor-made and custom designed vehicles and hypercars.

BRABUS Classic MB

“The new superyachting clientele is looking for new lifestyle experiences, new sensations to share. When price is not an obstacle to getting what is best the wealthy younger generation seeks more personal experiences that reflect their own identity,” suggests Gaëlle Tallarida, General Manager of the MYS. “Building a big yacht remains the ultimate in made-to-measure. In the same way the Car Deck reflects the superyachting lifestyle with a display of superlatively luxurious vehicles transformed to order according to their owners’ desires.”

Ford GT40

The Card Deck, located on Quai Antoine Ier in Port Hercules, will present a selection of about a dozen cars and a motorbike that are as original as they are exceptional, manufactured in limited editions or as unique prototypes, some of which will be available for test drives by potential buyers.

For its first participation in the Car Deck, the Italian company ARES Design will unveil its superb redesigned two-door Bentley Coupé, based on the four-door Mulsanne 2017 model and built in very small numbers. The new look given to the Coupé by ARES Design involves a total transformation of the bodywork, mainly using hand-worked carbon fibre and aluminium. Prices for this model, for MYS participants, start at € 715,000.

ARES Bentley

Fans of 1960s British motor-cycles will certainly appreciate the ARES Design trial, based on the minimalist style of the latest BMW R nineT, with a sublime vintage look combined with modern performance levels.

ARES Design trial

ARES Design will most probably also showcase the finest version so far of the emblematic Land Rover Defender. A genuine rebuild for this exceptionally robust vehicle that combines a luxury interior with a very high level of performance thanks to a tailor-made turbocharged V8 engine. Prices for this ARES 4×4 built in limited numbers, only 53 to date, start at € 215,000.

ARES Land Rover Defender

This year MYS participants will have the unique opportunity to meet with Alexandre Danton, French automobile designer and artist. Starting with a given model, or even a wreck, Alexandre builds a chassis and bodywork from customized parts, making the vehicle a unique work of art. His company, Danton Art Kustoms, will present two outstanding hot rods: a unique version of the Lamborghini Espada Edition CHD (Super Cars V12) in pure neo-vintage style with an astounding and refined new exterior; and a 1987 Porsche 911 Targa which, with its aggressive aesthetics, flamboyant red paintwork and redesigned racing body, is customized with a Bentley Turbo engine providing exceptional power (400 BHP).

Danton Porsche

Hemmels returns to the Car Deck and will display the finest Mercedes-Benz SL series restorations. Whether it’s the iconic 300SL Gullwing or Roadster, the sporty 190SL or stunning 280SL Pagoda, each car is taken back to its bare metal beginnings. Every component is painstakingly returned to original factory specification, or beyond. In the spotlight too is a new generation of hypercars, including the spectacular Milan Red model. Built by the Austrian motor manufacturer Milan Automotive, the first and only hypercar producer in Austria, Milan Red is at one and the same time a very fast car, a design object and a source of exceptional driving sensations. This luxury vehicle, with a power output of 1,325 HP for a weight of 1,300 kilos, is limited to 99 units at 2 million euros each.

Hemmels luxury cars

For its second participation in the Car Deck, Gentleman Car, the official French dealer for genuine American Shelby cars, will present three prestige models. Hand crafted with total respect for the spirit of the original, the FIA of the Shelby Cobra 289 FIA Continuation Edition series reproduces the characteristics of the race car driven by Dan Gurney in 1963 and 1964 (prices from € 159,000). The Shelby Cobra 427 S / C Continuation is based on a robust chassis built from 4-inch tubes and equipped with a 7-liter Ford V8 engine (prices from € 148,500). The Ford GT40 MKII Continuation is a perfect clone of the car that won at Le Mans in 1966. 90% of the parts are interchangeable with the vintage model! It is also the only vehicle officially authorized to use the GT40 name, as the chassis number testifies (prices from € 218,900).

Luxury car BRABUS-900-Cabrio

BRABUS will show a selection of customized Mercedes models. This German company is the largest specialist in the transformation of Mercedes vehicles and one of the leaders in the development and integration of innovative, functional business multi-media systems for vehicles. This manufacturer is well-known for its tailor-made luxury cars, combining outstanding performance with interior fittings of the highest quality (the models to be displayed will be announced shortly). Alongside its vehicles BRABUS will also be displaying its luxury 11-meter “hyper”-tender, the BRABUS Shadow 800, as part of the Tenders & Toys floating exhibition. Built in partnership with Axopar Boats the tender is distinguished by its use of the latest high-tech components and its thoroughbred exterior design in BRABUS’s distinctive signature color: black. For the first time on the international stage MYS visitors will be able to test the BRABUS Shadow 800 in the water.

Playing around with FunAir at MYS 2017

FunAir traditionally inflate the Fun each year at Monaco Yacht Show and launch something new to the superyacht toy market. This year they will be showcasing the new FunAir Playground and Junior BigAir Blob.

A redesign of a firm family favourite, the FunAir Playground has a slide, climbing frame and leaving off point for a smaller version of the very popular BigAir Blob, which like its big brother has stabilising outriggers that stop it turning in the ocean, and an inflatable stand-off that keeps it in place. Friends and siblings can jump from the playground straight onto the blob and launch their partners into the air.

FunAir Playground Junior BigAir Blob

The Playground can be tethered to the yacht out at anchor, and also works as the perfect accessory for families when it is secured in shallower waters on beach days.

Standing 3.5m tall when inflated, the playground has non-slip material on the steps and top, comfort grip climbing holds and ultra slick vinyl on the slide. This eliminates the need for a coversheet and reduces weight and pack size. The Junior Big Air Blob is also made from commercial grade 1000 denier PVC with FR and UV ratings. Total set up time is just 30 minutes.

John Courtney, MD of Yachting commented, “Part of the reason we work hard on developing our innovation partnerships is to make sure we get regular feedback on our existing products, what the owners, guests and crew would like to see in the future, what affects the use of our products and where we can improve everyone’s yachting experience.

“The Playground was developed because of our partnership with Titan Fleet who needed a durable playground that was robust and could be used by kids large and small. We redesigned it to make it lighter, taller and more stable. Combining the Playground with our Junior BigAir Blob gave Titan Fleet the perfect activity centre for their fleet of charter yachts.”

The redesigned FunAir Playground with Junior BigAir Blob will be on the water, displayed outside the official MYS Captains and Crew Lounge next to the Yacht Club throughout Monaco Yacht Show 2017.

To contact FunAir directly, arrange a meeting during MYS, or to pre-order please email yachting@funair.com, or call John Courtney on +1 512 751 4276.

MONACO YACHT SUMMIT 2017 The guide for new potential superyacht clients

Press release – September 21, 2017

 

This September 26, the 2nd annual Monaco Yacht Summit welcomes new potential superyacht clients – or their reps – to discuss the current issues about first-time charter or purchase of luxury yachts.

Qualified participants will be guided through the daunting processes of Purchase, Charter and Management. New to the 2017 programme is the inclusion of table talks on Design and Crew.

 

PURCHASE

The Purchase & Finance table talk will inspire with a yacht owner’s personal experience, unbiased insight and also provide the tools to determine what advice is required for the process.

Speakers: Ken Judge, Robb Mass, Anouch Sedef

CHARTER

The Charters table talk explores cruising regulations, tax and customs implications, insurance from the owner’s perspective as well as crucial details for the charterer’s consideration.

Speakers: Freddy Desplanques, Sophia Tutino

MANAGEMENT

This important table talk focuses on the importance of yacht managers; their role in safety, compliance, asset protection and cost reduction. Successful management can be measured by the workload it relieves the owner.

Speakers: Xavier Lamadrid, Jonathan Watson

DESIGN

New to the 2017 Monaco Yacht Summit Programme, the future evolution of design will stimulate discussion about creating yachts as “investments” and how design contributes to the success of the yacht on the charter market and later influences its resale value.

Speakers: Laura Pomponi, Stefano Pastrovitch

CREW

Also new at the 2017 event, the Crew table talk will address issues of interest and concern for Owners and Charterers such as employment contracts, crew selection and management as well as social security.

Speakers: John Cook, Charles Dugas-Standish

The subjects will be discussed in a casual ambiance to enable an effortless flow of dialogue.

If you are interested in either the first-time purchase or charter of a yacht and are new to the yachting industry, you are welcome to apply for your participation by emailing concierge@monacoyachtshow.mc.

If you wish to appoint your personal assistant or family office representative to attend on your behalf, please advise concierge@monacoyachtshow.mc.

We look forward to welcoming you to this exclusive and informative programme.

Monaco Yacht Show Superyacht Tenders and Toys

Monaco Yacht Show launches Tenders & Toys: A new exhibition devoted to superyacht tenders and toys

Visitors to the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show will discover a brand-new exhibition area devoted entirely to the trendiest luxury tenders and water toys on the market.

The creation of the Tenders & Toys zone at the 2017 Show is the MYS’ response to the yachting industry’s goal to attract a new, younger, superyacht clientele. Entertainment is one of the leading criteria in the selection of a yacht to buy or charter with the new generation of superyacht enthusiasts. 

Brokerage companies recognize that one of the criteria of a successful charter experience depends on the diversity of the leisure equipment and water toys available on board.

Located on Quai Albert Ier, Tenders & Toys will display fifteen or so tenders on two sites, one on the quay (in the extension of the Dutch HISWA pavilion) and the other on the water (opposite the Car Deck and the Starboard). Yacht owners, skippers and future clients will be able to choose their tenders from among the variety of products on view in Tenders & Toys. A wide range of tenders exists, with different characteristics for different functions – transfer to a marina, beaching on a wilder coastline, a gentle jaunt or a sportier outing – but the trend in the market is towards ever-larger boats offering performance and comfort equivalent to that of superyachts.

Tenders & Toys will thus raise the curtain on the elegant Mazu Yacht Thirtyeight, a 12m open launch for sea-going trips, or the latest Gozzo model from the Italian yard Apreamare, just introduced on 1 September. Maori Yachts will launch its new 17m tender whose ingenious design and superb performance should fulfil even the wildest dreams of its clients.

Cox Marine is coming with its new diesel engine, already hailed as a genuine revolution with a range three times greater than the average for conventional petrol engines. For its first participation in the Monaco Yacht Show Compass Tenders, double prizewinner at the Showboats Design Awards, will be highlighting its expertise in the manufacture to order of one-off tenders for superyachts. As for water toys, Tenders & Toys will present in particular a sea-kart, the new all-carbon version of which will be unveiled at the MYS, an electric surf board, and the very first underwater drone, along with a whole range of nautical accessories and inflatable structures for fun with friends or family.

The new Tenders & Toys zone will complement the range of tenders exhibited for some years already at the Monaco Yacht Show. Visitors can see another 21 tenders afloat on the Quai Jarlan, a private submarine by U-Boat Worx in the Darse Sud Plongeur zone or that of the American manufacturer Triton displayed at the entrance to the Parvis Piscine tent. And of course, two helicopters, the Agusta AW 169 (Tenders & Toys) and Bell Helicopter’s Bell 429 (entrance to the Parvis Piscine tent)!
