Yacht Club de Monaco shares its expertise in the concept and development of Yachts Clubs and Marinas

With a view to supporting its owner members in their choice of ports of calls, in 2011 Yacht Club de Monaco launched ‘La Belle Classe Destinations’. This label sets a standard of excellence in terms of quality of facilities, services and safety in superyacht marinas that are being developed around the world. In providing its expertise, YCM encourages new projects with the intention to establish an exclusive network of yacht clubs and marinas that fully respects each destination’s charms and individuality.
