Categories blog, Yachting Events

When you say Cannes, you say luxury. When you say luxury, you say Cannes Yachting Festival.

Since 1977, Cannes has been annually hosting Cannes Yachting Festival, one of the biggest and most extraordinary in-water boat shows in the Mediterranean region.

Held every September in the splendid bay of Cannes, the festival has widely grown, especially over the last several years, to establish itself as one of the main luxury events on the nautical calendar.

For its 41st edition, which will take place, from 11-16 September 2018, in Cannes Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto, Cannes Yachting Festival is expected to gather more than 600 boats, including motoryachts, sailing yachts, multihulls, tenders and more. The world’s leading nautical companies will be present with their latest boats and luxury vessels, more than a hundred of them will be making their world debut.

On the Vieux Port, there will be an area dedicated to new superyacht models. In the Pantiero, various exhibitions will be held, presenting boating equipment and service companies and, at just a few steps from it, the Palais des Festivals will host the Luxury Gallery in its third edition, where high-end brands will showcase their luxury products. Among them, there will be leaders in the jewelry industry, watchmaking, fashion and accessories, spirits, household linen, high-tech products, art, and many other different services.

Port Pierre Canto, which is only 7 minutes by boat from Canne Vieux Port, will be specially designed to host the Brokerage and Charter Area where an exclusive range of some of the finest superyachts will be exhibited over the 6 days of the event.

A shuttle service will be provided between the two ports to make it easy for visitors to explore all the show.

This year, also, the show will include the Concours d’Elégance—a parade devoted exclusively to vintage and modern-day boats measuring less than 12 meters—to pay tribute to the great history of sailing in the French Riviera.
