TBA (Dates to be announced)

By Katie Scott

Returning to the sparkling Bay of Cannes, the annual Cannes Yachting Festival returns with a wide array of motor yachts and some of the hottest luxury charter yachts on the market.

Leading the new yachting season each September, Cannes comes alive with both Vieux Port and Port Canto playing their roles in one of the biggest European yachting events of the year. Catering to many niches across the maritime industry, visitors to the show can expect to see a wide range of sailing yachts and motor boats of all shapes and sizes, plus a curated collection of exhibitors along the docks with merchandise, gadgets and a host of services to complete any luxury yacht charter package.

With around 100 models making their debut at the show each year, Cannes has long been known as a must-see yachting event in France, hosting many of the biggest names in the industry such as Benetti, Azimut, Sunseeker and Princess.

Featuring dedicated zones throughout the two marinas, those visiting the show will have close encounters and guided tours around the attending motor yachts, plus the chance to endure sea trials or book South of France yacht charters there and then.

In addition to the motor yachts, the Cannes Yachting Festival annually welcomes back many popular attractions such as the Concours d'Elegance with vintage yachts on parade, the Luxury Gallery for premium shopping opportunities, and many smaller exhibits primed to educate, inform, and offer taster sessions of the latest watersports and indulgent extras.
