Cannes Yachting Festival


After two years of work, reflection, and consultation with a very broad panel of French and international customers that represent many sailing or motor boats, and with the support of the Cannes city council and the Nice Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Yachting Festival will take up the entire bay of Cannes and its two ports, dedicating Porto Canto to the Sailing Area and the Vieux Port to
motor boats.

“The aim of this significant development is to provide the Yachting Festival with the space that had been lacking for a number of years and thereby to satisfy the growing demands of the exhibitors and enable the ‘sailing’ nautical industry to enjoy unsurpassed visibility and an exhibition space that, due to the lack of space, was never available at the Vieux Port. This fundamental change in the Yachting Festival 2019 will contribute to the growth of the nautical sector as a whole and its global dimension.From September, we’ll take up the entire bay of Cannes which will become the world capital for sailing and motor boats. Our in-water capacity will be increased, compared to 2018, by almost 30% for sailing boats and almost 10% for motor boats. Taking up, more or less, all of Port Canto, which I should point out is located on
the other side of the bay of Cannes just 8 minutes by sea from the Vieux Port, sailing boats that have been present at the Yachting Festival since its creation will now have more exhibition space, both on land and in-water, ensuring incomparable visibility.We are currently working on different daily event projects around sailing, both in-water and on land. We look forward to welcoming an internationally renowned patron for the show and a number of prestigious guests of honour”
The 42nd edition of the Yachting Festival will take place from 10 to 15 September 2019 and will be organised around the two ports in the bay Cannes, expanding Port Canto and hosting three main activity sectors:
This new Sailing Space responds to the numerous demands from the shipyards over the years for more inwater space in order to exhibit more boats and highlight their range and also offers bigger reception areas on land to welcome their customers in the best possible conditions.
With over 400 metres of linear quayside dedicated to monohulls and over 400 metres for multihulls, the new Port Canto spaces will provide a perfect setting for new sailing boats between 10 and 35 metres long.
On land, the loyal “Sailing” exhibitors at the Yachting Festival and the new builders and creators in this sector will share the 4,000 m² quayside area now offered by this new space, which is double the area of 2018!
The shipyards, equipment manufacturers and service companies working primarily in the sailing sector will have available large and comfortable spaces in which to welcome their customers.

With the wide dykes of the quays, Port Canto will offer large walkways throughout the Sailing Space enabling visitors to stand back and enjoy a better view of each boat on show on one side and of each reception stand on the other. This new Sailing Space at Port Canto will offer all the convenience of an exceptional experience where the very latest and finest monohulls and multihulls from around the world will line up for viewing by the visitors.
“Visitors coming from all five continents will be able to discover the ultimate in sailing boats presented by the leading players in the French and international nautical industry. What we are in the process of creating is an unbelievable Sailing Space! This has never been seen before and our ambition is quite simply to open the
largest in-water exhibition of new sailing boats in the world!”
The visitors, professionals and enthusiasts, will find all the services they are used to: prestigious restaurant, snacking, VIP Club, press service, etc.
As was the case in the previous years, the Brokerage Space is located on the large starboard dyke (on the right) when we arrive at Port Canto by sea. For nearly 15 years this space has hosted the leading French and international players in the second-hand luxury yachts market and presents some fifty motor boats and sailing boats of at least 22 metres long. Available to buy immediately, these second-hand luxury yachts are
also sometimes available to lease.
Since 2018 the “Toys” space is installed in Port Canto opposite the second-hand luxury yachts, taking advantage of wide spaces of this dyke to exhibit on-land an increasingly large selection of sport, fun and nautical activities equipment. A growing sector, “Toys”, for the young and the not so young, have become must-have equipment on yachts and are great fun and thrilling for those who use them! On show in 2019 will be an extensive collection of jet boards, long boards, jet skis and many other things too!
