Welcoming back many favorites such as the extensive display of sailing yachts in Port Canto and the Super Yachts Extension in Vieux Port, the show has also introduced an enhanced display of small boats which has moved from a land display to a dedicated zone in the heart of the Vieux Port marina.

Alongside all the magnificent yachts equipped for France yacht charters, visitors to the show will also be able to enjoy enticing cuisine, a sumptuous VIP environment and the Luxury Gallery which is situated within the Palais des Festivals.
