Monaco is the world’s second-smallest country, but only literally speaking. Once you get inside its .75 square miles, it is larger than life. A magnet for the 1%, the French Riviera city-state has a worldwide reputation for glamour and affluence.
In fact, one in every 56 people who live in Monaco has a $30 million net worth, and the price of prime property there sells for $9,000 per square foot, according to Wealth-X’s World Ultra Wealth Report. When you couple such wealth with a prime location on the Mediterranean, it is no surprise that Monaco is also an iconic superyacht hub.
