THE INTERNATIONAL YACHTING EVENT
Since 1977, the Cannes Yachting Festival takes place every September in elegant, luxurious surroundings in the sparkling bay of Cannes.
As the first show in the boating season, the Cannes Yachting Festival is Europe’s leading in-water boating event. The major players in pleasure yachting come here to launch the show season by showcasing their new worldwide models. Exhibitors and visitors meet in two exceptional French Riviera ports : The Vieux Port and The Port Canto.
Nearly 600 boats measuring 5 to 55 metres are displayed in water and on land in these two ports, including 120 world premieres. The shipyards offer trips out to sea so that new buyers can try out the finest yachts in the world and make an informed choice.
