Every September for the past four decades, the Cannes Yachting Festival has showcased the finest in the yachting world. It is set against the luxurious backdrop of Cannes’ two sparkling ports: the Vieux Port and the Port Pierre Canto. As one of the largest of its kind in Europe, the Yachting Festival is the place to be for boat builders. Meanwhile the world’s major players in pleasure yachting come to show off new, state-of-the-art superyachts.
Whilst Cannes is a great place to spot superyachts all year round, visitors to the Yachting Festival will be treated to over 600 boats on display. They range from two to sixty five metres in length, while more than 500 yacht and maritime exhibitors attend too. In fact, the event is so popular that half of its visitors come from overseas. Admiring the world’s sleekest liners and tailor-made vessels is an international pastime.

Countless maritime itineraries are in easy reach. Take the route from Nice to Monaco to enjoy Villefranche sur Mer, Cap Ferrat and many secretive anchor points along the way. Or navigate around Antibes and Cannes, stopping off at natural beauty spots like Île Sainte-Marguerite (one of the four tranquil Lérins Islands) – an exceptional island where nature, culture and relaxation meet in blissful harmony under a canopy of eucalyptus and pine trees.
For additional luxury, the South of France offers an exceptional standard of chefs. Why not hire one for superb onboard private dining during your sea journey. Toast Parc du Cap life over a glass of champagne! Taking in the striking vista has never tasted so sweet.
