September marks the beginning of a busy show season. The two predominant superyacht shows of Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) and Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) deliver year after year for exhibitors displaying their latest trends and of course, those top yachts to visit along the docks.

MYS has always stood as a benchmark for how the rest of the year will fare in the superyacht market. As Johan Pizzardini, communications and media manager for MYS explained "Monaco will stand as the major hub for ultimate luxury yachting during MYS and not only for the superyachts displayed but for the other events we'll be hosting this year". This year's 23rd annual MYS, taking place from 25 - 28 September will be no different. Brokers spend the summer preparing for the show season ahead and recently spoke with The Superyacht Owner sharing their views for the show and what yachts you need to make time for.
