august 03, 2018 - Cannes Yachting Festival

Internationally renowned Cannes Yachting Festival returns 11 to 16 september 2018

Taking place from 11th to 16th September 2018, the #cannesyachtingfestival is expecting once again to welcome more than 50,000 visitors from across the world to view and trial 600 boats on show. The #cannesyachtingfestival 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 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 #cannesyachtingfestival 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 #cannesyachtingfestival 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 7 minutes by sea from the Vieux Port, Port Pierre Canto will once again welcome the second-hand yachts from 22m to 65m 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 worldrenowned show. This unique #Event, scheduled on Saturday 15 th September, is a seamless addition to the show’s luxury credentials.
