The 6 biggest yachts at the Monaco Grand Prix

Ah, Monaco – a billionaires’ playground, and host to one of the most thrilling races on the F1 calendar, the Monaco Grand Prix.

With the city-state being right by the water, many wealthy folks opt to watch the race not from the grandstands but from their yacht.

And the average person can too as one-day rentals are available for as little as a few hundred dollars.

But we’re dreaming of watching it from one of the bad boys that made this list.

These are the six biggest yachts attending the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix – all 80 meters (262 feet) and above!

By the way, make sure you don’t miss a race by checking our 2022 Formula 1 calendar.

6. Grace – 81m (265.7ft)

Originally called Kibo, the yacht was sold in 2018 to businessman John Reece and renamed Grace in 2018.

Built in 2014 by Abeking & Rasmussen, the yacht is a regular in the waters of Monaco.

There’s plenty of room on her tiered decks to watch the F1 cars lapping Monaco’s streets all weekend.

When the racing is done, there are plenty of amenities to enjoy as well, with the yacht hosting a beach club, grand piano and even an elevator.

5. Secret – 82m (269ft)

Another Abeking & Rasmussen build, Secret stands out even on the waters of Monaco with her Sam Sorgiovanni-styled exterior.

It even has its own elevator for nice added touch of luxury.

There are sure to be plenty of eyes on Secret as the yacht is currently for sale as well.

Offered through Burgess Yachts, she could be yours for $84.4 million.

4. Man of Steel – 86m (282.1ft)

Man of Steel made headlines last year as the second-most expensive yacht sale in 2021, changing hands for a whopping $150 million.

Previously, she was called Seven Seas and belonged to none other than film director Steven Spielberg.

The 2022 Monaco Grand Prix is the first major event she will appear at following the sale.

She’ll be moored right in the heart of Port Hercules, where her new owner, steel baron Barry Zekelman, can soak up the action from her lower swimming pool or upper deck jacuzzi.

3. Cloud 9 – 89m (292ft)

Another recent sale, Cloud 9 changed hands just earlier this year, making the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix her first event after renaming as well.

Originally called Infinity, the sale price was withheld.

However, Cloud 9 is available to charter for a cool $1.2 million A WEEK!

With an onboard pool and plenty of lounging areas on her multiple decks, there’s plenty of space to watch the F1 from.

2. Lionheart – 90m (295.3ft)

The flagship from Italian builder Benetti, Lionheart is a regular in the waters of Monaco, with her home base in Port Hercules.

Spending most of the time cruising the French and Italian rivieras, she’s currently sat at the end of Quai Rainier.

Owned by Topshop owner Sir Philip Green, Lionheart is worth an estimated $150 million.

1. Tatoosh – 92m (301.8ft)

The biggest yacht that will be at the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix, Tatoosh is currently listed for sale for $96.7 million.

The only 300-footer on this list, she was finished in 2000 by German shipyard Nobiskrug.

Curiously, Tatoosh features bulletproof windows, along with a waterfront diving platform and a swimming pool of course.

Unquestionably, this will be the most imposing and one of the most recognisable yachts attending the Monaco F1 Grand Prix.
