Yachting and Lifestyle Come Together in Monaco

Monaco Classic Week 2013 will take place from 11 to 15 September 2013

Held by the Yacht Club de Monaco since 1994, the Monaco Classic Week is the only event to bring together in the same port classic sailing yachts, period motor-yachts and old motorboats, with all these wonderful boats setting sail together.

From 11 to 15 September 2013, every member of the yachting elite, whether classic, sailing or motor-powered, will meet at the Port Hercule to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Yacht Club de Monaco.

A festival dedicated to classic yachting will spread throughout the whole of the Quai Antoine I, with an exhibition of Titouan Lamazou at the Galerie Marlborough from 10 to 28 September, while the Monte-Carlo Auction House will hold an auction of classic boats, paintings and maritime objects.
