Cannes Yachting Festival : motoryachts and powerboats at the Vieux Port

While new, monohull, and multihull motorboats over 10 metres will be exhibited in-water, the equipment manufacturers and service companies will be on land. This configuration will be more consistent and will make it easier to identify the main categories of boat types and sizes, all while taking into account the port’s considerable technical constraints (height and space in front of quays, draughts, accessibility, etc.).

The whole area has been completely reimagined with new sections such as the Terrasse Pantiero, which, thanks to the installation of new pontoons, will accommodate boats of between 14 and 20 metres in length, creating a link between the yachts at the Jetée and the smaller boats at the Pantiero. A new site dedicated to semi-rigid boats, also on land, the Quai Max Laubeuf is an all-new village dedicated to inboard and outboard engines.

The Palais remains the place of elegance with its dinghies at the entrance, as well as its equipment manufacturers and high-end service companies. The Luxury Gallery, at the heart of the Palais, even larger is the space dedicated to the unique excellence, expertise, craftsmanship and lifestyle of renowned and more exclusive brands.

On the Port Canto side, one stop will serve the Sailing Area and another one the Brokerage & Toys Area. Different types of sea shuttles will be available with capacity ranging from 10 to 100 people to allow an even smoother, more flexible service and to ensure a departure every 15 minutes.
