Every September the beautiful seaside town of Cannes welcomes an impressive gathering of luxury yachts to its shores for the prestigious Cannes Yachting Festival, which in turn marks the first superyacht meet of the season.
Founded in 1977, the Cannes Yachting Festival has become one of the most important platforms for builders, designers and yacht brokers to present a wide variety of boats, ranging from tenders to superyachts available for both sale and charter.
Indeed, the six-day event is also renowned for unveiling the latest yachts to hit the market as well as the newest models, and gives the media and potential buyers the opportunity to get first-hand experience.
Yachts and exhibitors are spread across Cannes in three separate sites: the Vieux Port, Port Pierre Canto and the Palais des Festivals. There is also a new Luxury Gallery, dedicated to luxury, crafts and lifestyle, which is located inside the Palais des Festivals.

LOCAL DESTINATION INFORMATION
Backed by gentle hills and flanked to the southwest by the rugged cliffs and wild rivers of the Corniche d’Esterel, the exuberant seaside town of Cannes has become a sybaritic haven for those looking to escape in unrivalled luxury. Famed for its Fifties status as a millionaires playground and the glittering annual film festival, it still retains the charm, glamour and allure of its heyday.
