Come Meet Us At The Cannes Yachting Festival


September 12-17, 2023, Cannes

Nestled in the radiant Bay of Cannes, the Cannes Yachting Festival returns this September, continuing its illustrious tradition since 1977. As the first boat show in the sailing season and Europe’s preeminent in-water event, it beckons yachting enthusiasts, connoisseurs, and industry stalwarts from all corners of the globe.

The Yachting Mecca

The festival’s charm lies in its unique location: the Vieux Port, an iconic harbor that stretches across Cannes’ heart. Each year, this age-old Provençal port becomes a grand showcase of luxurious boats, with the world’s leading shipyards vying for attention.

Just across the Croisette, the Port Canto — Cannes’ secondary port — holds its own allure. Recognized for its focus on the Sailing Area, this newer port also houses large pre-owned yachts and the enchanting Toys Area.

The Palais des Festivals stands as a testament to high-end yachting, drawing brands specializing in leisure boating. Meanwhile, the Luxury Gallery inside the Palais is a haven for luxury aficionados, offering a curated selection of luxury items and services that encapsulate craftsmanship, heritage, and opulence.
