Renowned Cannes Yachting Festival 2016


As always, this 39th edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival will be held in September (from 6 to 11 September 2016) in elegant, luxurious surroundings in the sparkling bay of Cannes.

One of the boating season’s most prestigious events, this Show is Europe’s leading in-water boating event. With over 50,000 visitors in 2015, the Cannes Yachting Festival hosted in Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto, attracts luxury yacht and sail boat amateurs and seasoned enthusiasts alike. A chance to preview almost 600 boats displayed both in and out of the water.

Extending this already rich o er and strengthening its position, the Cannes Yachting Festival is putting on a great show for this new edition by unveiling an area previously kept private and only known to members of the select VIP Club :
La Terrasse.


Situated on the roof of the Palais des Festivals, La Terrasse boasts a panoramic view across the old port and its yachts, the bay of Cannes, Croisette and the Lérins Islands. Alongside the most prestigious yachts, La Terrasse will serve as a showcase, allowing its visitors to discover the exceptional o erings of luxury brands presenting their latest products and expertise (cars, watches, jewellery, gastronomy, tableware, private aviation, leather goods and design).
In addition to this exhibition area, the outside of La Terrasse will be dedicated to various events hosted by these companies.
This new area will o er the Cannes Yachting Festival’s visitors a unique experience, between land and sea, satisfying their taste for these exceptional products, and giving them the opportunity to admire the unique expertise and art of living of these luxury companies.
