    Just when you thought Cannes couldn’t get any more chic, the Cannes Yachting Festival comes around for another year to transform the city into (once again) the spot to be seen in the South of France. Europe’s leading in-water boating event is the first show in the boating season, surrounded by the sparkling waters of Cannes, and all of the top names in luxury boating.

     

     

     

     

    From Sept. 12-17, the Cannes Yachting Festival will showcase luxury yachts, sail boats, motorboats, monohulls, multihulls, toys, day boats, tenders, new boats and used yachts available for sale or lease. Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the show will welcome over 600 yachts into two exceptional harbors in which the show takes place: the Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto. These harbors offer breathtaking views of the largest yachts in the port, the bay of Cannes, La Croisette and the Lérins Islands.

     

     

    This year’s highlights include the Superfly GT 42, an ultra-luxe, state-of-the-art yacht premiering at the festival, among others.
