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 meeting of the season.
Known best for hosting the world famous Cannes Film Festival, this glamorous French Riviera location provides the perfect backdrop to one of Europe’s leading in-water boat shows. 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 motor yachts and sailing yachts.
The Cannes Yachting Festival is situated over three separate Cannes superyacht sites - the ‘Vieux Port’, ‘Port Pierre Canto’ and the ‘Palais des Festivals’. The event is also renowned for unveiling the latest yachts to the market as well as the newest models, giving media and potential buyers the opportunity to get first-hand experience.

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.
