In 2019, the new in-water configuration with new motor boats in the Vieux Port and the creation of a space dedicated for all sailing boats at Port Canto were a great success!

Regular Yachting Festival Sailing exhibitors (boat builders and equipment manufacturers) share 4,000 m2 of quay surface: a perfect stage for the biggest global in-water showcase for new super yachts! Thanks to the wide quays, visitors can comfortably enjoy their visit admiring a wonderful view of the monohull and multihull boats.

The Yachting Festival's Sailing Area brings together the leading players in the sailing industry and the ultimate in terms of sailing boats and equipment in an amazing setting.

In 2022, 116 new sailing boats ranging from 10 to 33 metres in length, both monohull and multihull, of which 19 global launches were lined up along the quays. Under the flags hoisted on guy wires flapping in the wind, visitors are immersed in this unique and timeless atmosphere so many sailing enthusiasts look for.

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. 



Covered sea shuttles connect the two ports approximately every fifteen minutes, for free.
