Since 1977, the Cannes Yachting Festival takes place every September in elegant, luxurious surroundings by the sparkling bay of Cannes. This year’s 41st edition of the show takes place in September 11-16, 2018. The Festival offers visitors and exhibitors a choice setting: in the bay of Cannes, just a stone’s throw from the old town and next to the Palais des Festivals. The Show stretches out over two harbours, Canto and Vieux Port.
Vieux Port, one of the oldest harbours on the French Riviera, welcomes prestigious exhibits presented by the world’s largest shipyards. Port Canto is devoted to large second-hand yachts. Brokers and charter companies offer a selection of around fifty 22 m to 65 m yachts.
Whether it’s the number of boats in all categories or the number of sailing boats, the Cannes Yachting Festival confirms its position as Europe’s largest in-water boat show. From the Vieux Port to Port Pierre Canto, from one end to the other of the famous Croisette, the best of the international offering of motor, sailing, monohull or multihull meets in Cannes every September!

During the six days of the show, visitors will have the pleasure of discovering the world of Maserati and the latest models in a luxurious lounge, in one of the most unique locations facing the dock of mega yachts. The famous Trident brand will provide a fleet of different Maserati models to ensure the transport of guests and visitors, who hold a VIP or Riviera card, to the Cannes Yachting Festival. The courtesy car service, available on simple reservation at the concierge lounge, will mainly provide the following connections: Nice airport – show, Vieux Port – Port Pierre Canto, Cannes hotels – show.
