Thanks Johan, don't worry it's not a sacrifice! About Sanssouci Star, she had a round stern. It was changed during a refit, but I don't remember when. Note the roof above the aft deck is still round. Another detail about Sanssouci Star, her bow was also modified few years after her launch. The fore part of the hull was cut and changed!

Nice photos indeed! ...and thanks for sacrificing some night's sleep to post them for us. About Sanssouci Star, has her stern been modified? She used to have a round stern, but the photo indicates that she has a flat transom.

To continue the visit, here are the yachts on the small pier between the Quai des Etats-Unis and the former north digue. There were Basma, Gaja, and the sail yachts Far & Wide, Y3K.

Here is a general view of this area, I assume it's not easy to understand for those who never saw a MYS.

Some yachts were also moored stern-to on the other side of the floating pier. There were StarShip, Seven Sins, and My Space. You can also remark the stern of Gran Pez on the left of My Space.

There was also a new floating pier, in the middle of the harbour, between the T-jetty and the floating pier in parallel of it. There were Waverunner, Centium, Streamline, and Gran Pez (moored alongside behind, not visible on the picture).

Inside the Port Hercule, it was interesting to notice that the new north basin was fully used for the yachts not displayed to the Show. Lady Moura was moored alongside the contre-digue, on the left of the picture.

Another surprise was to see Sanssouci Star. She's sailed a lot since her recent sale. She left the Baltic sea at the beginning of the Spring for a long cruise in the Med. It may be her first appearance on the French Riviera, personally it's the first time that I see her.

And there were some real good surprises in these "visitors". The biggest surprise was Al Yamamah, owned by the Saudi Royal Family (initially supposed to be a yacht for Saddam Hussein). It's certainly her first visit on the French Riviera. You can find her card here :

As you can see, the "show" was also off Monaco. Every year, many yachts are anchored off the harbour, approximately 40 to 50 yachts. Consequently there was a real ballet of tenders in the Port Hercule.

I will give a little summary about the Monaco Yacht Show. Many other websites gave you the usual pictures of the show, so I will try to report something different...
