Now in its 41st edition, the Cannes Yachting Festival brings together close to 620 boats measuring from five to 55 metres. As always, the varied fleet is made up of motor yachts, sailing yachts, multi-hulls and small motorboats, and over 100 will be making their world debuts.
The new yachts are on display at the Vieux Port, where the ‘Super Yachts Extension’ hosting yachts of 25 to 55 metres can be found next to quais lined with other smaller recently launched yachts.
Forty-six second-hand superyachts available for both charter and sale are, meanwhile, being exhibited across the bay at Port Pierre Canto joined by their expert brokerage houses.
50,000 visitors from around the world are expected to attend and take in the on-water displays of vessels as well as the 500 plus exhibitors
Over the duration of the show, more than 50,000 visitors from around the world are expected to attend and take in the on-water displays of vessels as well as the 500 plus exhibitors.
There is also a ‘RIB Village’ and tender and toys area at Port Pierre Canto. New for 2018, this section reflects the rapidly growing superyacht toy sector and is anticipated to be a popular show addition.
For visitors wishing to access Port Pierre Canto, there is a free public shuttle departing every 15 minutes from the 'Super Yacht Extension' in the Vieux Port.
Another highlight of the event is the Concours d’Elegance which will return for its fourth edition on Thursday 13 September at 5pm with a showcase of vintage and modern day boats. The parade pays tribute to the rich history of yachting in Cannes and the French Riviera.
The Cannes Yachting Festival 2018 runs each day from 10am to 7pm, apart from Friday 14 September when it closes at 10pm and the final day, Sunday 16 September, when it closes at 6pm.
