Cannes Yachting Festival: a rendez-vous for luxury sailing 

Cannes’ Vieux Port and the Port Pierre Canto will lend their sites to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Cannes Yachting Festival between 12th and 17th September as more than 600 luxury vessels go on display.

Organisers of the Cannes Yachting Festival are set to reveal a number of premium brands related to the super yachting lifestyle with art, furniture and décor, and high-end services in the Luxury Gallery at the Palais des Festivals.

There will also be the third Concours d’Élégance – a parade of vintage and contemporary boats highlighting the savoir-faire and craftsmanship of ship building. Competing criteria will include: the boat’s design, the state and quality of preservation, its story, the rarity of the model, the finesse of the crew and the quality of the presentation. Four prizes will be distributed and a ceremony will be held alongside prestigious partners such as the Italian car manufacturer Maserati, Dalloyau gourmet catering, and jeweller FRED. 

Attendees will also discover a wide range of motor vessels of up to 50 metres liners along with 110 sailing yachts at the biggest boat show in Europe.
