The Port, Monaco
Always worth a look, the harbour of Monaco is home to a wide variety of boating excess, much of which appears to be for sale at any time.
Among the professions serving the world's acute maldistribution of wealth here are the Yatch-brokers, testimony to the fickleness of fortune. It comes, and it goes.
Few of these boats actually leave the harbour, though among those that do will be found racing yatchs. (Peter de Savary once memorably described ocean yatch-racing as like " standing under a cold shower tearing up 50 pound notes") Most normal people are content to admire boats from the shore. It takes a particular type of individual with deep pockets to own one. Even the tiddlers burn money.
Take a walk around the port and enjoy the hyperly expensive boats lined up equiped with boat crews. Nice...
