The buyers showing up at the Monaco Yacht Show each year have so much money to spend on yachts that it's almost absurd.

First, a bit of background information: the Monaco Yacht Show is one of the biggest superyacht shows in the world. This year, there will be 125 yachts on display — 46 of which will be superyachts. There are also several other exhibitions for luxury yacht accessories.

We spoke with Laurence Shukor, a team member at the five-star Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, who helps set up buyers with a personal yacht shopper for the show. Shukor shared with us the inside scoop on how the super wealthy secure the right superyacht:

The Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo runs a program called the Sapphire Experience where those in town can book a room that comes with a personal buyer from the yacht show. Below you see the five-star hotel's decadent lobby.



How much you spend for the Sapphire Experience depends on the kind of room you stay in. The Junior Suite Prestige, pictured here, costs $5,243 for two nights with the Sapphire Experience.



But a more luxury suite, like the Suite Azur, will go as high as $12,781 for two nights with the personal buyer.
