The Cluster Yachting Monaco is a centre of competitiveness uniting 100 interdependent organisations and companies operating in the same sector, aims to bring together all shore-based yachting professionals working in the Monaco marketplace. It was established on the initiative of a top level committee (Conseil Stratégique pour l'Attractivité de Monaco) set up by the Monaco Government in 2019.
In accordance with the wishes of all its members, Yachting Monaco Cluster is there to provide a platform of communication between yachting professionals in the Principality.
The primary goal is to interact and generate dialogue with decision-makers and develop synergies, with a willingness to be open to other related business sectors.
