The Cannes Yachting Festival and the Monaco Yacht Show are two of the most exclusive events in the superyacht world, making the French Riviera a very exciting place to be in September.
Whether you’re in the market to buy, sell, or charter a yacht, or are simply interested in seeing some of the finest superyachts, supercars and toys on earth, the Cannes and Monaco yacht shows – which become the global epicentre of all things yachting and luxury – are your port of call.
Cannes Yachting Festival
The Cannes Yachting Festival kicks off the action in 2019 between the 10th and 15th of September, bringing over 600 vessels to the palm-lined ports of Cannes, including 122 boats on their world debut. In 2019, the Cannes Yachting Festival will introduce the Sail Area in Port Canto, where over 100 sailing boats will be exhibited, making it the largest in-water exhibition of large sailing yachts in the world. Port Canto will also host the superyacht toys exhibit, while the Vieux Port will display spectacular motor yachts and the illustrious Luxury Gallery, which showcases elite brands complementary to the superyacht lifestyle.
Some of the finest yachts for sale in the Cannes Yachting Festival fleet include the 36m S/Y PATH (pictured above), a stunning Baltic Yachts sloop built for world cruising adventures, and 36m motor sailor S/Y LUNAR, boasting a convertible tender storage/swimming pool. Both of these yachts are exhibited for sale through Fraser.
Monaco Yacht Show
The Monaco Yacht Show has become an international byword for glamour, with around 120 of the world’s most spectacular superyachts being exhibited within the historically famed principality. The Monaco Yacht Show dazzles visitors with a thrilling line-up of yacht debuts, the latest and greatest supercars and water toys, while VIP lounges, gala events, and yacht parties make the show an exceedingly exclusive social occasion. Now in its 29th year, MYS 2019 will take place from Wednesday 25th to Saturday 28th of September.
Fraser will be exhibiting four superyachts at the show proper, as well as additional yachts for sale and charter which are available for viewing at anchor.
50m S/Y ALL ABOUT U2 cannot fail to amaze with her cool contemporary interior, on-deck bar, and transom beach club, while the award-winning 50m explorer yacht M/Y ENDEAVOUR II has been built for world-cruising adventure, featuring hybrid diesel-electric propulsion and floor-to-ceiling views including master drop-down balcony. Also on show are the beautiful 46.5m M/Y QUEEN ANNE, and 44m M/Y VIRTUS 44 (see lead image), a 2019 launch featuring beach club, tender garages, and superb layout including large master suite in a high-volume layout.
For any yacht lover or yachting professional, there’s no other place to be in September than on the French Riviera for the Cannes and Monaco yacht show season.
