40th anniversary of the Cannes Yachting Festival

True to its reputation as Europe’s leading in-water boat show, the Cannes Yachting Festival, on its 40th anniversary, will be hosting nearly 600 boats from 12th to 17th September 2017 in the two ports of Cannes: the Vieux Port and the Port Pierre Canto. Yachts, superyachts, sailing boats, multihulls, small motorboats… Around one hundred boats will make their world premiere and admired by more than 51,000 visitors from all over the globe.
At the Cannes Yachting Festival, there is a wide range of possibilities! Want an inflatable dinghy for a day trip or a 50 metre yacht to go sailing?
Every enthusiast can find their ideal boat from 2,80 to 50 metres among the fleet presented by the most famous international manufacturers.


The boats, with hulls gleaming in the sunshine, compete with one another in their modernity, design and technology making the choice that much more difficult. A sea trial in the bay of Cannes will no doubt help the future captain to make up their mind!
Much more than a boat show, the Cannes Yachting Festival is a showcase for the gems of the seas, which, like the Place Vendôme, highlights unique skills and the «craftsmanship» of shipbuilding. It allows everyone to discover a world that is sometimes difficult to access for their viewing pleasure and great mechanics. An unmissable event for sea lovers.


To complete the offer proposed to visitors, the Cannes Yachting Festival hosts the exceptional worlds of luxury homes, crafts and lifestyle, which present their know-how and new products in the Luxury Gallery.
Many beautiful brands will gather together around their common passions: yachting and luxury.
Last but not least, the Cannes Yachting Festival is organising the 3rd edition of its Concours d’Elégance. A parade of vintage and contemporary boats, reserved for owners or collectors of motorboats and day boats of less than 12 metres.
To be admired in the Vieux Port de Cannes for the delight of all boat lovers, taking place on Thursday, 14th September from 5 pm.
