VIEUX PORT

THE WORLD’S BIGGEST SHIPYARDS

 

Each year, the Yachting Festival offers visitors and exhibitors a choice setting: in the bay of Cannes, just a stone’s throw from the old town and next to the Palais des Festivals, the Show stretches out over two harbours, Canto and Vieux Port.

Vieux Port, one of the oldest harbours on the French Riviera, each year welcomes prestigious exhibits presented by the world’s largest shipyards.

ENERGY OBSERVER

Odyssey for the future on display

The exhibition will stop in at the entrance of the Vieux Port of the Yachting Festival.

Starting as the hull of a legendary racing boat on which Peter Blake won the Jules Verne Trophy in 1993, Energy Observer has been transformed into an electrically-powered ship of the future, running on a mix of renewable energies and a carbonfree hydrogen production system that is seawater-based. Energy Observer travels the world on a planned odyssey of 50 countries and 101 stopovers!
