For six days in September, this nautical industry crown jewel plays host to the stars of international yachting, which descend on the French Riviera to showcase their luxury, style and elegance – echoing the glamour of its host city!

The world’s finest yachts

A major meeting point, the Cannes Yachting Festival is renowned for the eclecticism of the boats it presents. Every year it welcomes nearly 600 motor and sailing units, monohulls and multihulls from two to 60 metres in length, of which more than 100 are global debuts.

A major asset of the Cannes Yachting Festival, sea trials offer the opportunity for future owners to take the helm of the exhibited yachts and test them in the bay of Cannes before making their purchase a reality.

The biggest names in the industry

With the floating spaces occupied by the jewels of the seas, the quays of the Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto bring together the biggest names in terms of equipment and services, as well as the show's prestigious partners.

The Cannes Yachting Festival also gives pride of place to luxury brands, both renowned and more exclusive, by giving them the spotlight in a dedicated and resolutely premium space: the Luxury Gallery. Luxury, craft and lifestyle brands are hurrying, in this unique setting, to come and showcase their expertise to a new, select clientèle that is passionate about exceptional objects and services with high added value.

Global visitors

The 50,000 visitors, coming from all five continents of the world, walk the aisles of the show every year and find themselves seduced by the latest innovations and the ultimate in both yachts and luxury. A number of the visitors enjoy the Cannes Yachting Festival VIP programme, which includes a personalised tour, helicopter transfers, visit of yachts, access to the VIP Club, and much more.

Yachting and luxury meet in Cannes for the pleasure of both professionals and yacht enthusiasts!
