IDEAL PLACES FOR DISCOVERY

Come and admire the most beautiful yachts and sailboats and take the helm of exceptional units during sea trials!

VIEUX PORT

Cannes' Vieux Port is one of the oldest harbours on the French Riviera. It enjoys a privileged place in the heart of the city of Cannes at the edge of an idyllic seafront and at the foot of Le Suquet hill. The image would be incomplete without the Lérins islands facing it. The port is bordered to the west by the boarding quay for the islands and to the east by the famous Albert-Edouard jetty along the Palais des Festivals, providing more than half a kilometer of quayside to accommodate all the large yachts.

In 2022, the Vieux Port hosted 535 prestigious new motor boats ranging from 5 to 48 metres in-water in length, presented by the world’s leading shipyards and featuring many new products.

Vieux Port is also the setting of the Luxury Gallery, an area dedicated to luxury and the art of living. 

PORT CANTO

On the other side of the Croisette, the Port Canto is the setting of the Sailing Area. In 2022, it brought 116 new sailing boats ranging from 10 to 33 metres in length, both monohull and multihull, of which 19 global launches. These boats will be exhibited in-water facing the stands of the shipyards, equipment manufacturers and service companies. This large area is entirely dedicated to sailing. It adds another atmosphere to the trade show.

The Yacht Brokerage & Toys Area in Port Canto accommodates about 30 previously owned boats in-water, available for sale or hire. This year, the Yacht Brokerage area accommodated the biggest boat at the Festival with an exceptional length of 73 metres in length.

The space on land is occupied by the nautical toys which have become must-have accessories for big yachts or for a day at the beach. 

 

LUXURY GALLERY

From their arrival in the show, visitors discover the Luxury Gallery, a space dedicated to luxury, crafts and lifestyle. Located inside the Palais des Festivals in the Vieux Port and equipped with an elegant and refined scenography, it allows visitors to discover famous brands or more confidential actors offering exceptional products and unique know-how.
