Cannes Yacht Festival

Charter a private jet to the Cannes Yachting Festival, an annual event held in September surrounded by the elegant, luxurious sparkling waters of the French Riviera.


The Cannes Yachting Festival is Europe’s leading in-water boating event, and the first show of the European boating season attracts major players in the pleasure yachting industry to showcase their new models. In 2015, the event drew more than 50,000 people from five continents, with international visitors accounting for nearly half of the crowd.

Fly private to the beautiful Côte d’Azur this September for the Cannes Yacht Festival 

The event is held at two ports along the French Riviera, the Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto. Nearly 600 boats and yachts will be on display in the water and on land between these two locations, including around 100 models making their world debut. Shipyards even offer trips out to sea for potential buyers, allowing them to experience a particular yacht before making an informed decision.

The Vieux Port, the city’s historic old port, will be home to the Festival’s largest vessels with a variety of motor and sailing yachts over 25 m, some reaching 55 m. You’ll also find the Palais des Festivals near Vieux Port, where a number of shipyards, banks, interior designers, architects and other nautical services will be on display. There are also sections of the festival dedicated to Catamarans, Sport Fishing Boats and Powerboats as well.
