Monaco Yacht Show and Ethereal

Ethereal during her build at Royal Huisman

Two of the world’s top computer gurus have recently received their own very special super yachts from the Royal Huisman Shipyard in Vollenhove, Holland

Bill Joy, a co-founder of Sun Microsystems and now a Silicon Valley venture capitalist has taken delivery of the 58 metre ketch Ethereal, while Netscape co-founder Jim Clark sailed off in Hanuman, a 42 metre replica J-class racer Endeavour II whose design dates back to the 1930s.

Hanuman is heading across the Atlantic. But there is every hope that Ethereal will stay in Europe to make a debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in the Principality in September.

We are busy trying to piece together previews for several of the world’s top super yacht magazines. These articles will give detail of the yachts on show, what you should see and who you should meet.

If you have news about what your company is going to be showing at Monaco this year, or if you have events or product launches you would like us to attend, then please contact us.

  1. Dear Michael,
    Stumbled on your blog this morning, I used to work with you in Plymouth as a deckie. My name is Matthew Kotze. Not sure if you remember me?
    As planned I started up my own yacht delivery business Thumbs Up Sailing Yacht Delivery

    I love the look of Endeavour II, The J’s truly do have their own class!
