Vieux Port, Cannes
12 - 17 Sep 2023
Back for its highly anticipated 46th edition, the Cannes Yachting Festival is a staple event for both the yachting and social calendars of Cannes.
Scheduled to run from 12-17 September 2023, this show is one of the leading in-water yacht shows in Europe. The Cannes Yachting Festival attracts around 700 boats each year, which are divided between two iconic marinas; Vieux Port and Port Canto.
Setting itself aside from many other yachting events, the Cannes show offers visitors rare opportunities to indulge in sea trials on various motor yachts and luxury yacht charters, providing a first-hand experience of the yachting lifestyle at its best.
Globally renowned for being one of the must-see yachting events of the year, attending the show will naturally introduce visitors to some of the biggest names and yachts on the market.
Over 100 models make their global debut at the event each year, in addition to a host of toys and tender displays, showcasing the latest innovative developments in the industry.
But with all the spectacular new yachts in the marina, visitors can also get excited about an incredible collection of vintage boats with the annual Concours D'Elegance display.
Paired perfectly with a vibrant social scene, the popular Cote d'Azur event enhances the already enticing environment with a selection of side attractions and events.
Premium shopping at the Luxury Gallery prepares all charter guests for an indulgent West Mediterranean charter, with a specially curated selection of prestige retailers from fashion, jewelry, real estate and nautical niches.
For inspiration, visitors to the show can witness adrenaline-pumping watersports demonstrations with equipment often found on luxury yacht charter packages. Some of the activities include paddle boarding, Jet skis and flyboarding.
As one of the major highlights adorning the South of France, Cannes is a chartering destination not to be missed.
With social events sprinkled throughout the year at the famous Palais des Festivals, and of course within the marina, there are ample opportunities to see and be seen at some of the most prestigious events in France.
With such esteemed events like the Cannes Yachting Festival and the Cannes Film Festival attracting high demand each year, booking early is always advised for Cannes yacht charters.
