With more than 500 boats on display in water and on land, 160 of which will be on show for the first time ever, the two exceptional French Riviera sites, the ‘Vieux Port’ and ‘Port Pierre Canto’, located at either end of the famous Croisette in Cannes, are just right for hosting Europe’s leading in-water boat show.
6th – 11th of September 2011
The first gathering of the season, the Cannes show brings together the key players in pleasure boating and international luxury yachting, whether they be exhibitors showcasing their new vessels, products and services or visitors–yacht owners or future buyers–enthusiastic and eager to take advantage of a unique opportunity offered by this show: the sea trials! What could be better than taking the helm of a magnificent luxurious yacht, experiencing the sensation of sailing, before making the purchase?
Along the quays and pontoons, the show’s well-informed visitor will enthusiastically discover, in a unique atmosphere, the finest vessels on offer today from shipyards around the world, floating gems gathered together in a single showcase. Yachting lovers from every continent will appreciate the magical atmosphere of a real in-water show.
