During 10th to 15th September 2019, Cannes will receive a new edition of Cannes Yachting Festival. Since 1977, this luxury lifestyle event takes place in the elegant, amazing and sparkling bay of Cannes. Recognized as the first show in the sailing boating season, it is also famous for being Europe’s leading in-water boating event. At Cannes Yachting Festival, all the most important players in pleasure yachting come to the event season for showcasing their new worldwide models with a contemporary design.
Cannes Yachting Festival is a symbol of personality, stability, and heritage. The Bay of Cannes will be transformed into an impressive hive of yachting activity when the 42nd edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival gets underway on 10 September 2019.
The event totally dedicated to showcasing luxury yachts is split between Vieux Port and Port Canto, and a free seven-minute sea shuttle service runs every 15 minutes to transport show-goers from one port to the other. Vieux Port will showcase the latest superyachts and debut launches from shipyards around the world, and Port Canto will act as an enthusiastic brokerage area for those looking to purchase a one-off modern yacht.
In this year edition, the superyachts festival will orchestrate this event by moving more than 110 sailing boats, monohulls, and multihulls to Port Canto to host the largest in-water exhibition in the world of new sailboats. Besides this, the Vieux Port, one of the oldest harbors on the French Riviera, will welcome prestigious exhibits presented by the world’s largest shipyard and will be completely dedicated to the nautical motor industry and luxury and the lifestyle in the Luxury Gallery. At Cannes Yachting Festival 2019, you can find the Luxury Gallery, dedicated to luxury, crafts, and lifestyle, that will be situated inside the Palais des Festivals. All the exclusive visitors will discover this space with its elegant scenography from their arrival by the main entrance of the show.
The Concours d’ Élégance will be another event at Cannes Yachting Festival 2019: this exceptional parade is an occasion to see vintage and modern-day boats on the show and pay tribute to the rich history of yachting in the heart of the French Riviera.
