Cannes Film Festival Yacht Hire & The Monaco Grand Prix 2015 – Starting summer with a bang!

The month of May truly marks the start of the season on the Riviera, with Cannes Film Festival & the Monaco Grand Prix capturing global attention and attracting many beautiful faces, celebrities and high profile figures to the Cote d’Azur lands and seas. At 212 Yachts we’ve been busy organising Cannes film festival yacht charters and accommodating many of these guests with luxury yacht charters & super yacht tenders. We thought we’d give you a brief summary of these two fantastic spectacles!

The Cannes Film Festival – A Quick Look at FiF

The Cannes Film Festival never fails to disappoint. It is always a period of glitz, glamour, star-studded controversies galore! There is always high speculation of who will win the highly rated and much sought after ‘Palme d’Or’ award. A large part of the Cannes Film Festival are the ‘controversial’ films taken into consideration. It could be seen as a sign of how we as a society are moving forward and are no longer scared to discuss certain ‘taboo’ topics, for example, lgbtq+ rights, racism and poverty.

On a lighter note, there is true glamour outside the screen. Designers have the opportunity to show off their finest works on the most well-known faces while actors show off their best sides to the never-ending crowds of paparazzi. Moreover, many stars are spotted along the luxury ports of Cannes. Some regular yacht charterers include Piers Brosnan, Kendall Jenner and Leonardo DiCaprio. These beautiful vessels provide the perfect getaway from the Film Festival frenzy, with intimate parties taking place on yachts. 212 Yachts was very busy hiring yachts for events in Cannes, something we do all year around!

Monaco Grand Prix – A Summary

The Monaco Grand Prix always turns out as a more intense motor sport spectacle than we anticipate! With 78 laps and the betting stands open, it’s anyone’s guess as to who will win! With skilled overtakes and pit-stop advisors, it isn’t always clear who the winner in the wealthy principality may be. The bumps and thrills continue off the course but this time in the form of hip shaking, and champagne spraying at popular clubs such as Zelos, Black Legend & Jimmy’z with a host of glamorous & wealthy guests boogying to the early hours.

Port Hercule is equally ripe with sleek superyachts with many GP visitors choosing to stay on board. The 212 Yachts team charter some incredible yachts and provide luxury superyacht tenders so VIPs can zip from one yacht party to another. Popular tenders include the ever elegant Wajer, the much sought after Van Dutch 55, and the infamous Gaya for charter. The glitz and glamour of Monaco will never fail to disappoint!
