The Cannes Yachting Festival 2021 takes place from 7-12 September 2021 in Cannes, in the very heart of Cote D'Azur.
The Cannes boat show first took place in 1977 in the elegant French city every September. The exhibition showcases almost 600 boats, including superyachts, motor yachts, catamarans, tenders and sailing yachts.
With a vast array of vessels presented, the Cannes Yachting Festival is one of the largest in the world. Two city ports, the Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto host the in-water exhibition. Covid-19 required the organisers to cancel the boat show in 2020, and the 2021 Cannes Yachting Festival marks the return of this exceptional celebration.
New at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021
The arrangement of the show changed in 2019 – all the sailing yachts are now presented in Port Canto at the other end of the Croisette, leaving motorboats to stretch the area at the original Vieux Port location. The brokerage area stayed at Port Canto. Organisers say that the change of layout helped create 1,000 extended metres of additional berthing.
Which boats will be at the Cannes Yachting Festival?
The other major event, the 2021 Dusseldorf boat show, was cancelled due to Covid-19, so the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021 parades a flotilla of more than 400 motor yachts and 100 sailboats.
Do not wait to schedule your invitation to experience an exclusive viewing on any luxury yacht at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021.
