Monaco is a year-round superyacht destination recognised as the jewel of the French Riviera. The Grand Prix is the most coveted of all its events, made evident by the fleet of superyachts that converge on the Principality. Neighbouring Fontveille Harbour, which sits at the foot of the Rock of Monaco, is also a popular spot to drop anchor during the F1 weekend, allowing guests to catch tenders ashore to immerse in the goings-on, yet far enough removed to escape the signature racing car ‘whine’.
Likewise, yachting holidays to Abu Dhabi are growing exponentially. With a six-pad heliport just a few hundred metres from the Yas Marina circuit, the 200 natural islands close to the metropolis create a vibrant charter itinerary.
Monaco F1 Grand Prix
Nothing beats the thrill of being on board a trackside superyacht at Monaco Grand Prix. Uniting one of yachting’s pinnacle ports with one of automotive’s foremost racing circuits, Formula 1 comes alive on the historic Monte Carlo racetrack.
The Zone 1 harbour section of the track along Quai des Etats-Unis is one of the most exciting, offering uninterrupted views from the tight Tabac corner, across the starting grid and around the first swimming pool chicane onto Route de la Piscine.
Even for those yachts that aren’t trackside, the ambience is thrilling, and the revelry extends into the early hours with parties on board, drivers’ galas and the Principality’s legendary night life.
The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is a highly anticipated event on the F1 Calendar, thanks to its exotic location, exciting circuit design and the fact it’s one of only three day-night championship Grand Prix races, typically starting at dusk and ending under illuminating floodlights.
Abu Dhabi is also Formula 1's season finale, which means an unrivalled party scene spreads across the city during race week as everybody looks to celebrate the end of the season, with world-class DJs flying in to rev the nightlife up a gear. Alternatively, stay on board and party the night away superyacht style.
