Year-round, Monaco is a spectacular place, but when you combine it with the most popular Formula 1 race in the world, the experience is magical. For well over 50 years the Monaco Grand Prix has been regarded as the most prestigious motor race in the world — not to mention one of the grandest social events on the calendar. The streets are lined with exotic sports cars and the harbor is jam-packed with dozens of super yachts, all vying to be part of the world’s most glamorous grand prix.
This year savor seven glorious days aboard Le Ponant, a luxurious sixty-passenger yacht, visiting the most exciting destinations possible. Even more impressively, you will be moored in the Monaco harbor, right in the epicenter of the Formula 1 paddock area during the Grand Prix.
Mooring inside Monaco Harbor is truly a luxury and only those with “connections” are even considered. Watch the Formula 1 drivers and teams prepare for the weekend and feel the anticipation amplify as the race draws closer.
While others make dining reservations weeks in advance, Le Ponant guests enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at their reserved table, being served gourmet food and having gracious stewards cater to their every whim. While regular spectators walk miles through crowded streets to their grandstand and hospitality suites, Le Ponant guests walk but a short distance to their chosen viewing. As others jostle for attention in crowded lobbies, Le Ponant guests will be taken care of by an attentive crew.
A majestic three masted yacht, Le Ponant offers relaxing cruises crafted to respect the tradition of famous sailing yachts in an intimate and welcoming atmosphere. Enjoy a refined lifestyle onboard, the warm charm of your cabin and lounges and restaurants that invite you to relax throughout your sailing.
Le Ponant offers a large comfortable lounge and two restaurants, one with a terrace. A water sports platform is available at the back of ship for direct access to the sea and water-based activities. Meet someone new in the Emeraude Lounge, enjoy some alone time in the Saphir Lounge or be entertained by the onboard pianist after dinner each night. On Friday night join Grand Prix Tours for their Formula 1 driver cocktail party onboard and get to know the men behind the machines.
Start planning your trip of a life time. Be right in the center of the Formula 1 action on the deluxe sailing yacht “Le Ponant” moored in the Monaco Harbor or choose from a selection of 4 and 5 star hotels in Monte Carlo or Nice.
