Cannes Yachting Festival : The new sailing area at Port Canto

With over 500 metres of linear quayside dedicated to monohulls, and the same for multihulls, the new Port Canto spaces will provide a showcase for new sailing boats between 10 and 35 metres in length. The new Sailing Area will offer all the convenience of an exceptional experience where the very latest and finest monohulls and multihulls from around the world will line up for viewing by the visitors.

Cannes Yachting Festival : The new sailing area at Port Canto

On land, the Yachting Festival’s loyal “Sailing” exhibitors and the new builders and creators in this sector will share the 4,000 m² quayside area offered by this new space, double the on-land space that was available in 2018! The shipyards, equipment manufacturers, and service companies working primarily in the sailing sector have large spaces to welcome their visitors.

With its wide dykes and quays, Port Canto has large walkways throughout the Sailing Space enabling visitors to enjoy a better view of each boat on show in-water on one side, and of each reception stand. Visitors coming from all five continents can discover the ultimate in sailing boats presented by the leading players in the French and international nautical industry.

Visitors, professionals and enthusiasts alike, will find all the services they are used to: a prestigious restaurant whose menu is provided by our partner Maison Dalloyau, a VIP Club in an all-new floating penthouse by Rev House Sea, a press service... but also a new village of food trucks for a world tour of flavours, and a champagne bar.

As was the case in the previous years, the “Brokerage” area is located on the Jetée du Phare, the large starboard dyke (on the right) when arriving at Port Canto by sea. For nearly 15 years this space has hosted the leading French and international players in the second-hand luxury yachts market and presents some fifty motor boats and sailing boats of at least 22 metres long and up to 65 metres long this year. Available to buy immediately, these second-hand luxury yachts are also sometimes available to lease.

Since 2018 the “Toys” area has been installed in Port Canto opposite the second-hand luxury yachts, taking advantage of this dyke’s wide spaces to exhibit on-land an increasingly large selection of sport, fun, and nautical activities equipment. This year there is a large collection of jetboards, longboards, and jet skis including several electric motor models and many more.
