“After nearly a month of fitting and installation, we’re ready! As is the case every year, we’ve put all the necessary means in place to enable visitors to discover the very best of the French and international offer in luxury yachting and monohull or multihull motorboats or sailing boats, in the idyllic setting of the French Riviera.
This year the Yachting Festival is organized between the two ports: the Vieux Port hosts the ultimate in motor boats while Port Canto becomes the new showcase for the most beautiful sailing boats. Visitors can use the various types of free sea and land shuttles provided to get from one port to another easily. However, we recommend they take the boat to enjoy a fleeting moment on the water, with a magnificent view of the Croisette and the bay of Cannes,” says Sylvie Ernoult, Director of the Cannes Yachting Festival.
