The Cannes Yachting Festival takes place 12-17 September 2017 in the bay of Cannes, stretching across the town's two marinas, Port Pierre Canto and Le Vieux Port close to the old town and the Palais des Festivals.
Around 600 boats will be on display in water and on land in these two marinas, with around one hundred world premieres. Le Vieux Port, one of the oldest marinas on the French Riviera, will welcome exhibits from marine suppliers as well as many of the world's leading shipyards, with the opportunity for buyers to sea trials during the Show.
Port Pierre Canto is devoted to large second-hand yachts with sales and chater brokers on hand for viewings of around 50 yachts between 22-50m.
For the second year in a row the Cannes Yachting Festival will also house the Luxury Area dedicated to leading luxury lifestyle brands ranging from cars to jewellery.
Also returning is the Concours d'Elegance, a motor boat parade sponsored by Show partners Frédérique Constant, Studio Harcourt Paris, Louis Roederer, Lise Charmel, Foglizzo and Skippers Motor. The Concours d’Elégance takes place on the Festival beach on Thursday, 14 September at 1pm.
