Luxury Yachting in Cannes

5 December 2015

Luxury yachting in Cannes is an activity that has experienced a strong development over the last years. Cannes, at the heart of the luxuriant, prestigious and lavish coastal region of the French Riviera, is not only the place where the Cannes Yachting Festival takes place, an unmissable event in the luxury yachting scene in Europe, but also offers to numerous clients luxury yacht rental services in the French Riviera, crewed charter boats departing from Nice, Cannes, Monaco, Antibes or St Tropez.

During the warm summer evenings, the frequent firework shows in the bay of Cannes are best appreciated from a yacht’s deck.

With the modernization of the port Canto of Cannes, our home port, recreational yachting continues its development, by receiving increasingly large boats in this striking area. This is how, to this day, the activity of Luxury Yachting in Cannes keeps on prospering and thriving.

Cannes, a continuous yachting activity

Those who thought that the importance of  Yachting in Cannes had come to its lowest point, have mostly forgotten how strongly this activity resists to time, and even to the changes of our days, and they have forgotten even more how prestigious these Luxury superyachts are. Indeed, the clients are not hard to find, especially during the vacation time, and even more so during the summer season.

Those who are yachtsmen, who are on vacation or who come as tourists, from all corners of the world, do not hesitate to come to the Cote d’Azur aboard their recreational boats and also aboard equally gigantic cruise ships, each one heading to unique destinations. Along with this very special movement, events and manifestations are permanently organized, throughout the year, in this region of the French Riviera. Along with the Cannes Film Festival and the Formula One Grand Prix of Monaco, the yachting festival of Cannes is also an iconic and famous event.

It is in Cannes where luxury yachting always keeps its high-profile headquarters in the south of France, and where its presence is continuously noticeable.
