Buy a Boat in Cannes French Riviera – Yacht Purchase

31 January 2021

Are you looking to buy a boat in Cannes? Internationally reputed as the preferred yachting destination on the Cote d’Azur by world-wide boating enthusiasts, it makes perfect sense to purchase a yacht for sale in Cannes.

Cannes — ideal base for private yachts

The magnificent bay of Cannes is located in the heart of the French Riviera, and famous for its fabulous spirit of never-ending celebration and joyful carefree life, elegant people and celebrities, expensive cars, exceptional restaurants, and palatial hotels, trendy beach-clubs, and above all, two well-equipped huge marinas (the “Vieux Port” and “Port Canto” – our homeport) full of the most impressive luxury yachts and Superyachts.

Cannes not only fascinates and attracts VIP tourists from all over the world but is located quite centrally along the Cote d’Azur, within short navigation of the other “hot spots” on the Riviera such as Monaco, Nice, Antibes or Saint-Tropez. Our five-star beach resort is also the preferred departure point for sailing to Corsica, Sardinia, or the Italian Riviera. In addition, Cannes is also easily accessible from the Nice International Airport or the Cannes-Mandelieu Private Airport, both a short drive away. This convenient geographical location makes Cannes an ideal base for private and charter yachts.

Indeed, with the growing demand for yacht charters in this region, buying a yacht in Cannes could also be a profitable investment, or at least balance your boat’s yearly running costs.

Considering a yacht purchase in Cannes is also the best solution for those eager to be a part of the glamorous social life on the Cote d’Azur and international events such as the Cannes Film Festival as there is no better way to successfully experience them or organize corporate events than on board a Superyacht moored in Cannes.
