Every year in the two ports of Cannes, the Cannes Yachting Festival welcomes prestigious new motorized yatchs from 3 to 45 meters in-water, presented by the world’s leading shipyards. The big names in leisure boating and yachting invite you to Cannes Bay, where they are ready to showcase the many new products and world premieres in a luxury and elegant setting.

The Cannes Yachting Festival is the biggest get-together for the boating community. With 300,000 sq. m of exhibition space spread across both land and water, 600 exhibitors and over 650 boats on display, the Cannes Yachting Festival attracts more than 54,000 visitors every year. Coming from all four corners of the globe, international owners and buyers will come together in a magical atmosphere. The exhibitors, including almost all of the major players in the French and international nautical industry, will be spread across the two ports of Cannes. Especially noteworthy in these spaces are the stands you ill find related to ship design and architecture, motor and sailing boat construction, nautical services and equipment, luxury ranges, artisanship and yachting lifestyle as well as the latest innovations from around the world. Free water and land shuttles, chartered for the general public, will connect the two ports every quarter of an hour.
