The superyachts that float long and magnificent are undoubtedly the figureheads of the Monaco Yacht Show. But among the floating palaces and some 30,000 onlookers sit 500 exhibitor stands.

From service provision to products, these stands represent some of the most recognisable companies in the superyacht industry and form the lifeblood of the supply chain. Every new year welcomes a host of innovations and 2015 promises to be no different.

At MYS 2015 e3 Systems will be showcasing its HYBRID communications solution. With superyachts being used as centres of business, as well as holiday (or semi-permanent) homes, connectivity is not simply desired it is expected – on the open ocean or hugging the coast line. The HYBRID solution combines satellite signals with land-based services and allows on board communications systems to switch seamlessly between the two. Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G LTE, broadband and satellite services are all assimilated to provide what the company promises will be 100 per cent connectivity.

e3 Systems: HYBRID

Hug Engineering will be presenting its improved e-power diesel particulate filter soot reduction system for 55kW to 250kW superyacht gensets. The new e-power system requires less space than previous models and also acts as a load bank for idle operations of the engine - for engines with low exhaust gas temperatures. Results show the effective removal of exhaust gas soot particles of up to 99 per cent.

Without the practical products that cover communications, security, motion, energy, navigation, pollution negation and much more, a superyacht simply would not function. But if superyachting were merely a practical pursuit the industry would have fallen at the first hurdle – superyachts require the elements of eye-catching luxury for which they have become renowned.

Van Berge Henegouwen: Magnolia 1.50mm

New to Van Berge Henegouwen’s portfolio is the SiliconCore Magnolia 1.50mm LED Display. In each square metre of display the Magnolia contains 440,000 pixels and features one of the smallest pixel pitch displays on the market. Each bespoke screen is made from a number of tiles and can therefore be configured to fit any size and shape, making the Magnolia not only vivid but practical for the superyacht market.

A comprehensive Monaco Yacht Show 'best of' product review will appear in The Superyacht Report issue 165 covering safety and security, entertainment, communications, decking and more.
