Charter a Yacht for Cannes Film Festival 2023

Diamonds and gold aren’t the only things that glitter at the Cannes Film Festival. With the arrival of spring on the French Riviera, Hollywood’s elite descend upon the sparkling shores of Cannes’ Boulevard de la Croisette for the world’s most prestigious film festival.

Just steps away from the iconic Palais des Festivals and her famous red-carpeted steps is the heart of Cannes: her harbor sitting pretty with Port Pierre Canto at one end and Vieux Port at the other. With a backdrop of superyachts all lined up and prepped for charter, there’s no better way to see and be seen this festival season.

Reasons to Charter a Yacht During Festival de Cannes

Floating offices and private parties

This usually quiet seaside village transforms overnight into a superyacht hotspot. For 12 days, Cannes plays host to film premiers, glamorous soirées and the who’s who of Hollywood: celebrities, producers, directors and screenwriters as well as financial brokers and those in the business of entertainment.

By day, your yacht is a private floating office space perfect for conducting meetings, networking and even exclusive screenings. By night, transform your superyacht into a chic party venue to host the stars.

Sail the Med

The Cannes Film Festival marks the opening of the Mediterranean yachting season. Step away from the chaos and sail away to the Lerins Islands or Saint Tropez for the day. Superyachts are known to host celebrities wanting a break from the buzz. The pastel shores of Nice and Antibes are but a short cruise away.

Of course, once the festival wraps up, Formula 1 in Monaco is but a week away. Extend your charter by a week to really enjoy what the French Riviera has to offer, then hang out by Port Hercule for another weekend of high-octane action.

Health, safety and security first

With all the crowds that major events bring, health, safety and security are often a major concern. Superyachts, with their private crew and fully trained staff, are more secure than a conventional hotel room. Your charter broker can help you select a yacht and specialized staff suited to your needs.
