There’s just one month to go in order to complete the transformation of the Vieux Port and Port Canto in Cannes, which will accommodate nearly 400 boats recently released by the most prestigious French and international shipyards. The 43rd show will open for 6 days, from Tuesday 8th September.
This new event will play host to an eclectic offer, with some 400 boats ranging from 3 to 43 metres including; in-water or on-land, sailing and motor boats, monohull and multihull, hard and semi-rigid hulls, all divided between Cannes’ two ports. Among these 400 boats, over 140 are being presented for the first time. Despite the pandemic which has directly, and significantly affected the yachting industry in recent months, many of the major players will be present to meet their customers at Cannes, exhibit their new collections and be involved in the restart of the industry. Visitors can therefore enjoy a show rich in varied content and enhanced by many new products.
For the second consecutive year and after the successful launch of the Sailing Area, the show will be arranged by boat type: motorboats will be exhibited at the Vieux Port while the sailing boats will be moored at Port Canto. On the quayside of each of the ports, visitors will be able to discover equipment manufacturers and service companies. Regulars will find the Luxury Gallery, a sector dedicated to luxury and lifestyle at the Vieux Port and the “Toys” area for nautical toys on the other side of the Croisette, at Port Canto.
Free Shuttles Between the Two Ports
A free land and sea shuttle service (buses accessible on presentation of an event access ticket) connects the two ports and is available to all visitors and exhibitors.
