The Cannes Yachting Festival is one of my favourite yachting events of the year. The yachts are on display in both the old and new harbours of Cannes. In the old harbour you can see the latest motor yachts and motor catamarans of all sizes and price ranges. In the new marina, you can see the latest sailing yachts and sailing catamarans, as well as some pre-owned luxury yachts. Due to our long presence in the yachting industry, we have excellent contacts. We can arrange exclusive viewing appointments for the yachts of your choice. We will accompany you and give you our assessment of the quality and equipment of the yachts. All this is completely independent and always on your side.

We look forward to meeting you and helping you make your dream yacht a reality – whether for charter or purchase.

Nestled along the sun-kissed coastline of the French Riviera, the annual Cannes Yachting Festival stands as a testament to the splendor of the maritime world. From September 12th to 17th, 2023, this prestigious event will once again transform Cannes’ Vieux Port and Port Canto into a haven of nautical opulence, showcasing a remarkable collection of boats that range from sleek sailing vessels to impressive motor yachts.

A Maritime Showcase of Elegance and Innovation

Step into a world where the sea meets innovation and luxury, as the Cannes Yachting Festival unveils a stunning array of approximately 700 boats, spanning from 5 to 50 meters in length. It’s not just the sheer number that dazzles, but the diversity that truly sets this event apart. Whether your heart yearns for the elegance of monohull sailboats or the power of multi-hull motor vessels, you’ll find a captivating selection to explore.

The Enchanting Dual Haven: Vieux Port and Port Canto

As you wander through the bustling ports of Cannes, you’ll find yourself immersed in a maritime paradise, with the Vieux Port and Port Canto hosting this magnificent event. The iconic Croisette, renowned the world over, serves as the connective thread between these two vibrant hubs of yachting excellence.

The historic Vieux Port, steeped in tradition and charm, provides an enchanting backdrop for boats of less than 10 meters, laid out ashore for enthusiasts to admire up close. Meanwhile, the on-water spectacle unfolds at the elegant Port Canto, showcasing boats beyond the 10-meter mark in a picturesque maritime ballet. The ambiance is unmatched, as the Mediterranean sun glimmers on the azure waters, setting the stage for a truly unforgettable experience.

Where Innovation Meets Adventure

Prepare to be enthralled as you engage with the biggest players in the maritime industry. Innovations that redefine the boundaries of technology, design, and comfort are presented in a way that only the Cannes Yachting Festival can orchestrate. This event isn’t just a showcase of boats; it’s a glimpse into the future of seafaring.

Perhaps the most unique aspect of the festival is the opportunity it presents. Imagine yourself taking the helm of an exceptional yacht during sea trials, feeling the power of the engines beneath you and the wind in your hair as you navigate the sparkling waters of the French Riviera. It’s not just an event for spectators; it’s an invitation to become a part of the maritime world.

A New Horizon: The Small Boat Area

In 2023, the Cannes Yachting Festival introduces a novel addition to its maritime marvels – “The Small Boat Area.” This floating oasis, nestled within the Vieux Port on the Pantiero, is dedicated to motor units ranging from 8 to 11 meters in length. This carefully curated space provides an intimate setting to explore these smaller vessels, offering a linear exhibition that allows visitors to immerse themselves in the intricate details of each boat.

As you stroll along the pontoons positioned at the end of the quays, you’ll be captivated by the elegance and craftsmanship on display. Every boat tells a story, and in this new marina, you won’t miss a single one.

A Voyage of Elegance and Discovery

The Cannes Yachting Festival isn’t just an event; it’s a celebration of maritime excellence, a canvas upon which innovation and elegance converge. As the sun dips below the horizon, casting a golden glow on the waters, the festival transforms into a world of enchantment and possibility. It’s an opportunity to witness the latest innovations, to forge new connections, and to experience the thrill of the open sea.

So mark your calendar for September 12th to 17th, 2023, and set your course for Cannes. The Cannes Yachting Festival awaits, ready to whisk you away on a journey of elegance, adventure, and boundless maritime wonder.
