Since 1977, Cannes has welcomed thousands of yachts to its ports. This year the Cannes Boat Show will exhibit 580 boats & 150 world premier editions.
Just as the holidays are coming to an end, it’s still not over yet for those who work in the yachting industry along the Côte d’Azur. Since 1977, Cannes has welcomed thousands of stunning boats and luxury superyachts to its three main ports, including the ‘Vieux Port’, ‘Port Pierre Canto’ and the ‘Palais de Festivals’. This year is going to be the biggest yet, with 580 boats expected to be exhibited, along with 150 world premier editions.
The Cannes Boat Show welcomes all those international yacht brokers, boat owners, potential buyers and superyacht enthusiasts, to meet and appreciate the yachting industry together, on one of the most notorious coastlines in the world. Exhibitors at the boat show will be showcasing new superyachts and luxury sailing yachts from all over the globe both in and out of the water. As well as the vessels, other exhibitors will be presenting naval products and services, from gourmet food deliveries to various yacht tenders and toys.
The Cannes Yachting Festival is definitely not a show to be missed, being one of the greatest and unique yachting events in the world. This year, organisers have decided that potential buyers can do sea trials, meaning that they can take a luxury superyacht out for a spin before making a purchase!
Expect grand yachts such as S/Y INMOCEAN (pictured below), a classic Fitzroy sailing yacht to be exhibited by superyacht broker Alex Clarke, of Denison Super Yacht Division. Primarily designed for cruising off beaten tracks, she has three beautiful staterooms designed by Adam Lay Studio and a spacious deck, ideal for social gatherings.
Tenders and other yacht toys are also due to be displayed. Denison Superyachts will also be showcasing the famous OTAM 58 HT (pictured above), a chase boat with an incredible cruising speed of over 50 knots. For those seeking extra space, she is the ideal addition for any yacht owner. She is spacious, luxurious and stylish, and a perfect entertainment area.
