Cannes Yachting Festival : An Exceptional trade-show


First nautical event of the season not to be missed, the actors of the yachting industry will present their novelties in world preview in a luxurious and elegant universe.

Two emblematic sites will host this event, the Old Port of Cannes and Port Canto. While the Vieux Port presents prestigious motor boats from the world’s largest shipyards, Port Canto is dedicated to sailing monohulls and multihulls as well as second-hand yachts, not to mention the “WaterToys” area, a veritable paradise for nautical toys. Free sea and land shuttles, available to visitors, will provide a link between the two ports every quarter of an hour.

With 300,000 m² of exhibition space on land and in the water, 575 exhibitors, more than 620 boats, 141 of which are previews, and more than 54,400 visitors expected, the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022 will renew its role as a matchmaker between owners and buyers from all over the world. So much business conducted in a most elegant and friendly atmosphere and a dream setting.
