Since 1977, the Yachting Festival takes place every September in elegant, luxurious surroundings in the sparkling bay of Cannes.
As the first show in the boating season, the Yachting Festival is Europe’s leading in-water boating event. The major players in pleasure yachting come here to launch the show season by showcasing their new worldwide models.
SAILING AREA 2019
In 2019, the Yachting 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 sail boats.
Vieux Port, one of the oldest harbours on the French Riviera, each year welcomes prestigious exhibits presented by the world’s largest shipyards.
Port Canto is devoted to large second-hand yachts. It also hosts the sailing area and the Toys area.
The Luxury Gallery, dedicated to luxury, crafts and lifestyle, is located inside the Palais des Festivals. Visitors discover this space with its elegant scenography from their arrival by the main entrance of the show.
This exceptional parade is an occasion to see vintage and modern day boats on show and pay tribute to the rich history of yachting in the heart of the French Riviera.
You can choose the VIP program that suits you to attend the Festival as a distinguished visitor.
