The 18th Monaco Yacht Show Already Sold-Out

From the 24th to the 27th of September 2008, the companies of the luxury yachting sector will return to Port Hercules for the 18th Monaco Yacht Show. Seven months before its next edition, the show is already sold-out thanks to an impressive repeat exhibitor rate as well as new requests for the few stands that were available in early January. International luxury yachting industry professionals are not mistaken in positioning the MYS as the super yacht show which attracts a global high-end professional and private clientele: 500 exhibitors and 28,000 participants are expected for 2008.

The MYS accurately reflects the evolution of this sector: in 2007, the show presented an exceptional f... (more)

Arabian Knights and Their Floating Palaces

Some of the largest, most opulent yachts in the world belong to Arab royalty and businessmen. Only one, Phocea, the largest privately owned sailing yacht in the world, owned by a woman, is available for charter. Arab royalty and oil sheiks, like most Western elite with a taste for a lavish lifestyle, are fond of adding a megayacht or two as part of their big ticket possessions since they constitute the ultimate status symbol. A mega or super yacht is defined as a private luxury cruising vessel that is at least 85 feet in length. Some currently being built are surpassing 450ft! At one time a 75ft boat was considered large. Now even 150ft is seen as modest. The cost can run in the tens of millions of dollars, and annual running expenses can add an average of 10-12% of the yacht's value.

Who Will Buy Larry Ellison's (World's Largest) Megayacht?

International Yacht Vacations & Charters Magazine - News  Coverage EXCLUSIVE GOOGLE NEWS by YV&C Yacht Vacations & Charters Magazine's editor-at-large reports: Ever since Larry Ellison agreed last week to an unusual settlement to end the "derivative lawsuits" against him resulting from insider trading allegations dating back to 2001, a settlement which will cost $122.5M, the megayachting world has been abuzz with speculation as who could afford to buy the 452-foot Rising Sun megayacht from him – the world's largest yacht – and maybe help defray some of that expense. Bigger even than Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen's massive 414-foot Octopus, Rising Sun made her first visit to the South of France in May 2005 during the Cannes Festival and just prior to the Monaco Grand Prix and has been mentioned in the same breath as steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal, owner of a $128M ho...

Monaco Yacht Show 2005 Live Coverage - M/Y Jasmin The Scent of Pure Excellence

International Yacht Vacations & Charters Magazine - News  Coverage EXCLUSIVE GOOGLE NEWS by YV&C Of how many vessels in the world, when first you see them, can you truly say that you were awestruck? Quietly, but conclusively. Awestruck. M/Y JASMIN, with her dark blue hulk, flared bow, white superstructure, and her flawless fully-faired finish, is such a vessel. Berthed conveniently at Atakoy Marina, just 15 minutes’ drive from Istanbul’s main Ataturk airport. When I boarded her, the JASMIN is the only yacht I have ever yearned immediately to circle over in a helicopter to enjoy an aerial view before going on board. From the very first moment, it is crystal-clear that you are entering not just “another superyacht,” but an incredibly unusual, one-off, memorable creation. And for some reason my first instinct was to want to see her from above, from... (more)

Amartya Sen: The Idea of Justice

His latest book, The Idea of Justice, is a serious re-examination of the foundations of justice from a global perspective. He speaks of the two definitions of justice in Sanskrit - niti (institutional justice) and nyaya (realized justice) - and how we are too often misled by the utopian vision of ideal justice, only to allow societal injustice all around us in our everyday lives. For Sen, justice must alleviate suffering. Here's his lecture to the folks at The Carnegie Council (video here): AMARTYA SEN: It is always an absolute delight for me to be back here at the Carnegie Council. I am very grateful to Joanne for being so kind and so welcoming. It's very nice to meet some old friends, familiar faces, and some new ones--Joel [Rosenthal] and other old friends, but a lot of new ones too. I am very grateful. I am not going to go into the distinctions in the Indian epis... (more)
