The Cannes Yachting Festival
The Palais des Festivals rolls out the red carpet in September of each year. This signifies the beginning of the prestigious annual Cannes Yachting Festival. A celebration of all things nautical, it’s a must see event. Vieux Port and Port Canto are always a who’s who of the yachting world, and you can smell sophistication in the air. We’re going to be there, are you?
Every year, the event is jam-packed, with people travelling from afar to marvel at the many hundreds of boats and exhibitors. The footfall is always extreme, and people flock to Cannes in their tens of thousands. The festival is a chance to see all of the new trends in yachting. Super yachts and sailboats are in such high supply that they seem to extend miles beyond view. We of course, are present each and every year, accompanying our clients in their yachting endeavours.
Le Vieux Port
Vieux Port is truly a land of luxury, with deals being struck on the latest of super yachts every which way. Guests and prospect buyers are invited to take a tour of these powerful vessels. With yachts boasting modern and plush interiors, full kitchens, dining rooms and master bedrooms. Top suppliers also showcase their best wares, from food to furniture, Vieux Port has it all.
Global society is trending undeniably in a greener direction, there is an ever-growing focus on Eco-friendly Super Yachts, and we of course support this move. The X Shore eElectric 8000 (shown above) was one of the stars of the Vieux Port in 2019. With new boats like this boasting 100% electric power and still reaching a top speeds of 25-30 knots, they tend to draw the attention of the crowds. In an age where the protection of our environment is of ever-growing concern and importance, these new models offer a way for people to carry on yachting, without a carbon footprint on their conscience.
