Deadline Soon for Monaco Grand Prix Yacht Charter Berth Applications


Plenty of vessels remain available for the Monaco Grand Prix. In addition, Cannes Film Festival held around same time.  The window to secure prime dockage for The Superyacht Experience™ is rapidly closing.



Dock masters in Cannes and Monaco set deadlines for acquiring a slip due each Spring.  This is due to heavy demand for the best berths.  In Cannes, dockage requests are for the quay of the Port de Cannes.  Particularly, directly adjacent to the entrance to the film festival.  In Monaco, ideal berths are stern-to along the quay. This area borders the street track at Port Hercule de Monaco.

“First-time special event charterers often don’t realize that Port Hercule blocks the coming and going of Superyachts during the multiple days of the Monaco Grand Prix,” says Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters. “We let our clients know it is more important to secure dockage early than it is to select a yacht.  Renting a yacht and being forced to anchor in the bay and use the tenders to get ashore to watch the race or attend the film festival is time-consuming and hampers the true superyacht experience of being right next to the action.”   



Berth application deadlines for 2016 are early.

  • Monaco Grand Prix.  Deadline for filing a berth application – 29 February, 2016.
  • Cannes Film Festival.  Deadline for berth applications – 4 March, 2016.



Finally, consider a special event Côte d’Azur yacht charter this spring. Subsequently, 1-800 Yacht Charters offers complimentary paperwork processing of all berth filings and applications. It is a complicated process. We gladly handle it on your behalf.   This is all about relaxation for you and yours.  For more information, contact your 1-800 Yacht Charter team at
