Every year in early September, more than 50,000 enthusiasts fill the ports at each end of the Croisette to discover the world’s most beautiful boats.
Considered as one of the most important international boating events and Europe’s largest on-water show, the Cannes Yachting Festival is known for its eclecticism and the wealth of vessels presented. More than 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 Craft 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 52 metres. For loyal water craft owners 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.
