For six days this September, the Cannes Yachting Festival will turn the city of Cannes into the world capital of boating and yachting.
The Cannes Yachting Festival is a premiere venue for selling boats and yachts. Its diverse, demanding clientele are looking for “the best” before sealing the deal.
Every year in early September, more than 50,000 enthusiasts fill the ports of Cannes to discover the world’s most beautiful boats.
As the first show in the boating season, the Cannes Yachting Festival is Europe’s leading in-water boating event. The major players in pleasure yachting come here to launch the show season by showcasing their new worldwide models.
Approximately 600 boats and yachts are exhibited by the world’s greatest shipyards and most famous brokers. There is the mythical Riva, England’s Sunseeker, France’s Jeanneau, Prestige, Bénéteau and Monte Carlo, alongside the USA’s Chris Cra and many more: they can all be seen in Cannes. These brands come to debut their latest models before a knowledgeable audience representing every continent.
From standard production boats to custom vessels, a vast array of modest dinghies, sail boats, multihulls and the biggest, most luxurious yachts awaits on the Cannes waterfront.
Master mariners and casual skippers alike will find the perfect boat from 2 to 50 metres. For loyal water craftowners who want to freshen up their vessels with a makeover, the docks at the Cannes Yachting Festival will also host a bevy of equipment manufacturers. There is a wide selection featuring on-board smart home solutions, new paints in subtle shades that are perfect for sprucing up hulls, the latest eco-friendly engines and more.
