Europe’s leading in-water boat show returns to the glittering Bay of Cannes on 11th September 2018, for its 41st edition. The Cannes Yachting Festival will feature almost 600 boats, ranging from motor and sailing yachts to tenders and day boats. They will be showcased across Cannes’s two main ports: the Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto.
Some of the festival’s highlights are a super-yacht extension on the Vieux Port for new models, exhibitions of boating equipment in the Pantiero and the third edition of the Luxury Gallery, an area in the Palais des Festivals dedicated to luxury crafts and lifestyle.
There will also be another edition of the popular Concours d’Elégance, an exceptional showcase of vintage and modern day boats paying tribute to the rich history of sailing in the French Riviera.
Before the show starts, take a look at some of the most spectacular yachts on display:
Azimut Grande 32 Metri
The Azimut Grande 32 Metri will mark its world debut at Cannes. Designed by Stefano Righini and interior stylist Achille Salvagni, the yacht features a spacious beach club and a lateral garage which can house a five-metre tender and three metre Jet Ski.
The Cannes Yachting Festival will be the stage of Pearl Yachts’s big reveal of its semi-custom flagship model, Pearl 95. This is the largest vessel ever to be built by the British yacht builder and was styled on the exterior by Dixon Yacht Design, while the interior carries the mark of Kelly Hoppen.
