~ The Old Port

First of all, the western edge of the harbor is bounded by the embarcation dock for the islands, and the eastern edge by the famous Albert-Edouard pier, which runs alongside the Palais des Festivals. It offers more than half a kilometer of quay to accommodate all the big yachts.

The Vieux Port is also home to the Luxury Gallery, an area dedicated to luxury and the art of living.

It is totally dedicated to the motorboat industry, with more than 530 recent motorboats from 5 to 48 meters.

~ Port Canto

Port Canto is divided into 3 areas. The one we’re interested in is the Sailing area, which features the world’s largest showcase of new tall ships afloat, with its 4,000 m² of dock space. Thanks to the generous width of the docks, visitors can comfortably enjoy the wide range of boats on display.

In short, the Cannes Yachting Festival is an exceptional showcase for the boating industry, offering boat lovers and professionals alike a unique opportunity to discover the latest trends, innovative technologies and top-of-the-range products in the sector.

Join us from September 10 to 15 at the Cannes Yachting Festival!

We look forward to seeing many of you at this major event. Our dealers remain at your disposal for a visit or any other request.
