The Cannes Yachting Festival is a veritable nautical fashion show in Cannes’ two harbors! Every year, hundreds of boats, from the smallest models to the giants of the seas, play the sublime models afloat and show off their most beautiful hulls to a clientele of enthusiasts, whether they are small yachtsmen or buyers of luxury yachts.

Dreams on the sea

When around 650 boats from 5 to 48 meters disembark in the splendid bay of Cannes, it obviously doesn’t go unnoticed! For a week, the port Canto and the Vieux-Port have eyes only for these boats, whose eclecticism is matched only by their novelty. Whether sailing, motor, monohull, multihull, hard-shell or semi-rigid, there’s something for every taste and every budget.

Yachting enthusiasts can come and unearth the latest novelties and even find accessories on the spot. Major buyers, or the most elite clientele, discover the luxury yachts that fascinate so many. They can even try them out at sea.

Previews on the rise

The Yachting Festival is renowned for offering world previews of new products at each edition, which contributes to the event’s renown and makes it one of the nautical industry’s major gatherings.

The tens of thousands of visitors each year are spoilt for choice: from new to second-hand, for sale or rental.

There are numerous areas ashore offering a multitude of products, including fameux toys, the nautical toys so popular on large yachts.

Green on the Grande Bleue

Yachting is no exception to the protection of the planet debate. The industry and the Cannes festival are relaying the efforts undertaken by professionals over the last few years.

Exhibitors, grouped together in a specific area, demonstrate, at each edition, the progress made in this area with concrete ideas, projects or products already available on the market.

Objective, to leave as small an environmental footprint as possible. Yes, boating is evolving!
