See you at the 40th Cannes Yachting Festival

This September marks a very special anniversary for the Cannes Yachting Festival as it celebrates its 40th year in on its superbly sited venue, the bay of Cannes. From 12 to 17 September 2017, the Cannes Yachting Festival opens the European show circuit and is at the forefront in showcasing the highest number of new model launches, innovative designs and the region’s pick of the luxury charter yacht fleet.


The 2016 show attracted 51,000 visitors to the venues in Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto, a vibrant mix of luxury yacht and sail boat amateurs and seasoned experts alike. A chance to preview over 600 boats displayed both in and out of the water and 530 exhibitors.

Recognised as one of the most important international boating events and Europe's largest in-water show, the Cannes Yachting Festival is known for its diversity of charter yachts in a range of sizes from all over the globe. Following the successful launch of La Terasse during last year's show, the Cannes Yachting Festival is unveiling the 'Luxury Gallery' situated within the Palais des Festivals which will be dedicated to premium brands outside of yachting: automotive, timepieces, jewellery, gastronomy, private aviation, leather goods, art and design.


The pièce de résistance at this year's show will be the third edition of the Concours d'Elégance – an on-water parade of vintage and contemporary boats, reserved for owners or collectors of motorboats and day boats of less than 12 metres. This takes place on the Vieux Port de Cannes to the delight of all boat lovers, Thursday 14 September from 5 pm, with prizes for Judges' and people's choice.


The Riviera and Med charter fleet will be well represented at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival. Luxury Charter Group will attend, inspecting charter yachts and renewing contacts with the Captains, crews and management of these magnificent mega yachts.
