Internationally renowned Festival

2 MINUTES READ

The Cannes Yachting Festival is expecting this year once again to welcome more than 50,000 visitors from across the world to view and trial 600 boats on show

The Cannes Yachting Festival has been the first to take place in the international yachting calendar since 1977 and therefore leads the season with the highest number of new model launches and innovative designs. More than 100 boats will make their world premiere at the show, from 11th to 16th September, positioned at each end of the famous Croisette. Recognised as one of the most important international boating events and Europe’s largest in-water show, the Cannes Yachting Festival is known for its eclecticism and the wealth of vessels presented in a range of sizes. With over 100 sailing boats it retains its position as the largest gathering in Europe.

Following the successful launch of the ‘Luxury Gallery’, situated within the Palais des Festivals, the Cannes Yachting Festival will once again showcase luxury brands outside of yachting. This will include watches, jewellery, fine sprits, fashion and accessories, design, art, high-tech products and services. On the other side of the Croisette, only seven minutes by sea from the Vieux Port, Port Pierre Canto will once again welcome the second-hand yachts from 22 m to 65 m in the brokerage area. It will also welcome, for the first time, the entire toys area of the show relocated there to get more space and present more products.

Returning for a fourth year, the Cannes Yachting Festival’s Concours d’Elégance competition provides a unique spectacle of rare vintage and modern-day boats at the heart of the world-renowned show. This unique event, scheduled on Saturday 15th September, is a seamless addition to the show’s luxury credentials.
