Traveling the World by Air and Sea – Why Every Yacht Owner Needs a Helicopter

Travelling the world by air and sea is a thrilling experience. Both yachts and helicopters give you the ability to access new and exciting places around the world. A unique place for yacht owners to anchor on the coastline is Monaco. This principality is renowned for its upscale casinos, luxury hotels and restaurants, the Grand Prix motor race and the Monaco Yacht Show. In addition to owning a yacht, purchasing a helicopter can help you reach unchartered areas.


Enjoying time on your yacht near the marina and participating in exciting immersion activities can be made a lot easier with a Bell 505 or a Bell 429. As the most advanced helicopters in the classes, the Bell 429 and the Bell 505 are perfect matches for yacht owners. Helicopters are excellent forms of private and corporate travel. Fixed-wing aircraft is useful for fast travel to save time and increase efficiency; however, helicopters provide privacy, accessibility to limited areas, and most importantly saves precious time in getting to and from your destination.

There is no compromise when it comes to comfort and luxury. The Bell 429 provides a smooth and quiet ride and includes a large cabin that can seat up to seven passengers. This aircraft is easily customizable for luxurious amenities, such as Mecaer Aviation Group’s (MAG) luxury interior option providing VIP customers with multiple options to enhance cabin interiors and choose from a variety of seat configurations. Bell’s VIP-configured aircraft can be personalized and equipped with advanced technologies and an In-Flight Entertainment Enhanced Lounge (I-FEEL), which provides an interactive touch screen based entertainment, communication and flight information management system.

You can learn more about our incredible aircraft, perfect for yacht travel, at the Monaco Yacht Show September 26th through 29th. We look forward to seeing you at the Parvis Piscine entrance.
