Los Angeles, CA May 19, 2012 - My YachtTM Monaco, now in its seventh year, will welcome a new brand partner aboard for 2012. Monster Headphones is to showcase three of its exclusive models during 4 days of luxury hospitality and Formula 1 race viewing at this year's 70th Monaco Grand Prix. Nicholas Frankl, of Entertainment Marketplace, brokered the deal.

The models to debut will be: Inspiration, Monster's first over-ear, noise canceling headphone, as well as the elegant over-ear Diamond Tears - EdgeT and, in alliance with Diesel, the iconic lifestyle company, Monster is offering VEKTRT, a trendsetting personal listening solution. Says Nicholas Frankl, "Monster is synonymous with premium quality. The partnership with My YachtTM Monaco, given the superior relationships it has developed over its many years in and around the Principality and the Grand Prix, is a natural fit and I am sure that guests, and the Royal couple themselves, will very much enjoy this new collaboration."

The company will display the headphones, plus give guests an opportunity to ear-test them, while on board My YachtTM Monaco. Held on board a 46m (150-foot) private Feadship superyacht moored next to the road course in Monaco's Port Hercule harbor, guests enjoy views of all the Monaco F1 Grand Prix racing action from Thursday through Sunday.
