There are only a few days left till the world’s most anticipated and famous nautical salon: the Cannes Yachting Festival.

Reaching its 40th year, the event takes place in the two magnificent ports of the French Riviera: Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto, from the 12th to the 17th of September.

The Yachting Festival, organized every year in September since 1977, is an appointment which cannot be missed. This is both due the beauty of its location as well as the importance of the event and its participants.

The Cannes Show is the first of the European nautical season and the most important for all enthusiasts in the industry.  It attracts those interested in the latest news as it has previews before the other fairs.



Edition 2017




There will be about 600 boats both in the water and on ground.  These will be divided into two locations: Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto.  Of these boats a hundred of them will be presented as a world premiere.

This is a rich and heterogeneous show.  The boats include both small and maxi motor yachts, 10 to 25 metre long sailboats, multi-hulled boats and small and medium motor boats from 2.80 to 50 metres.

More than 50,000 visitors are expected and you will be able to view the products of all the leading brands in the industry.  You can also experience the boats in the water for those interested in buying.

And the nautical world isn’t the only thing on show. For lovers of luxury, there is also the Luxury Galley on the ground floor of the Palais Des Festivals.  This is a true maison of style, crafts, fashion, design and art.



Furthermore you will also be able to attend the third Concours d’Elégance.  This is a parade of vintage and contemporary crafts under 12 metres and will be held on Thursday, September 14th.  It will bring together enthusiasts and collectors from all over the world.

Finally, to allow all participants to visit the fair in comfort and enjoy all the services, the Yachting Festival has created two different exclusive proposals.  The first is the VIP Card (valid for two people in three versions: 1 day, 2 days or 6 days depending on the duration of the visit) and the Riviera Card (valid for two people in 6 days).

The possession of these cards will be linked to a number of advantages including the Maserati car service and access to the Panoramic restaurant and VIP Club, whose menu was created by Maison Dalloyau and Maison Louis Roederer and their best vineyards.
