Yachting in the Heart of the French Riviera

Cannes prides itself on being “the world’s most eclectic exhibition,” with a selection of luxury yachts ranging in size from 16′ (5m) to larger than 164.04′ (50m) available on display on the breathtaking shoreline of the Côte d’Azur. This year’s event takes place in two different venues: The Old Port and Port Canto. The Old Port of Cannes is a historical site, accompanied by a charming town and a large circumference for viewing. Here, revered motor yachts from the smaller range are on display, accompanied by world-leading shipyards. The latter location, Port Canto, features distinct sections: luxury sailing yachts from 32.81′ (10m) to 114.83′ (35m) at Escape Voile & luxury motor yachts from 72.18′ (22m) to 183.73′ (56m) at the Brokerage Area.

Dazzling yacht enthusiasts as well as current and potential yacht owners, The Cannes Yachting Festival is one of the most spectacular yacht shows in the world. The annual Cannes Yachting Festival will treat guests to breathtaking views of the bay of Cannes and all things yachting. Taking place in Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto, the show will have nearly 600 yachts on display— it is the largest in-water yacht show in Europe.

With an impressive collection of exhibitions, attendees may enjoy the Luxury Gallery, VIP programs, the Elegance Competition, the Innovation Area, Green Route, naval architect consults and more.
