Yachting in monaco

As part of its remit to promote Monaco and in the face of growing, increasingly competitive competition, YCM launched its Monaco Capital of Yachting project in 2012.

Yachting is an industry and way of life in its own right. Positioning Monaco as the sector’s world capital makes total sense. Proud of a long tradition for innovation, Monaco is one of the most influential places in the world that sets trends in yachting: this is the opportunity to be a “Silicon Valley of the Seaside”.
