Monaco Capitale du Yachting


A forerunner since the end of the 19th century and benefiting from numerous assets and infrastructures adapted to the expectations and needs of its guests (Yachting Professionals, Hotels, Starred Restaurants, Opera, Casino, Luxury Shops…), the Principality has established itself over time as an essential port of call for shipowners and yachtsmen with high purchasing power.  

Eager to share the strong values that have shaped his country’s identity, built its reputation and preserved its tradition of innovation, HSH Prince Albert II, President of the Yacht Club de Monaco, launched the ”Monaco Capital of Yachting” initiative in 2012. 

10 years later, this initiative has been transformed into the collective brand ‘‘Monaco Capital of Advanced Yachting’’, a real tool for international influence for all the State’s services and all the professionals who contribute to the country’s economy. Bringing together all the players in the sector, the common mission is to promote Monaco as the capital of tomorrow’s innovative and sustainable yachting throughout the world.

Signatories of the Charter of Commitment


When the brand was born, our intent was clear: we wanted to demonstrate  our respect for history and the masters, an then allow our creativity free rein. 

Lanéva Boats has its roots in the nineteenth century, and more specifically in the work of German engineer Moritz von Jacobi who, in 1838, launched the world’s first electric boat on the River Neva in St Petersburg, watched by Tsar Nicholas I. It was the first time in history that royal eyes had the opportunity to see an electric boat in action. 



HY-Plug is a consulting firm helping its clients: boat builders, shipyards, brokers, naval architects, yacht designers, captains or owners to know and understand the sustainable technologies available on the market for their project. But also with ports for charging stations. HY-Plug’s slogan is a good representation of its concept: to be a link between the different actors to preserve the seas and oceans.




ETYC is the very first company to offer training, auditing and advice to yacht crews in order to adopt the right environmental protection behaviour.

Although architects and engineers have been able to find technological solutions to make yachts less polluting for several years, behaviour on board has never really evolved; yet it is urgent to act. A recent WWF study shows that the Mediterranean is the most polluted sea in the world, containing 4 times more waste than the 7th continent of plastic.
