Monaco YachtsWritten by Laura Ciocan
Sea and rich people: where else to find a better combination than in Monaco! A real yacht parade can be admired throughout year in Hercule Port besides local yearly yachting events. From imposant, big-sized ones to neat, small, jewel yachts. If you are a yachting amateur or if you are hardly interested in matter (as I was before seeing this impressive display) you will find something to like here.
There is a restraint, exclusivist rich group that has a thing for yachting, mainly because they can afford to! You and I, we both know that we'd like to own even a small, "unpretentiuos" sailboat, don't we? And have at least once dreamed to relax on deck of a luxury yacht in Monaco. But, hey, who needs a yacht in a so busy world? Do we wake up in morning with nothing better to do than dress in white completely (maybe some blue too), have our cafe au lait (maybe a croissant also if not on diet) and go to quay ordering around employees to rub up better that side? We certainly don't! If you say you do, that's another story!
What better place (and object) for a competition: who has bigger, more expensive model, envies arise, disputes start... Shirley Bassey reportedley complained of big size of "Le Grand Bleu" belonging to Russian billionaire Abramovich. The yacht appearantly spoiled view on port of her uphill apartment. Well, what else would you like rich people to do?...
Besides occasional cruises and constant care some rich peolpe find a practical use to their yachts: some rent them, others live there. Owning a yacht can be extremely useful if you are a tax exile, especially UK citizens who live in Monaco but work in UK. Renting is very profitable, especially during holidays season or when big events happen in Monaco: prices go from EUR25,000 per week to EUR365,000 per week, depending on size and facilities.
