The annual Cannes Yachting Festival marks the beginning of boating season for Boating World. Set in the luxurious surroundings of the sparkling bay of Cannes, this event is Europe’s premiere on-the-water boat showcase thanks to the volume of major yachting companies from around the world on display.

It’s a festival that is dedicated to big names in luxury yachting, such as Fairline, Fountaine Pajot, Jeanneau, Riviera Yachts, Sunreef and Sea Ray. Each year these shipyards use the Cannes Yachting Festival as the platform to premiere the new models produced in their yacht ranges.  

Not only do visitors get the opportunity to view the yachts, but legitimate buyers also have the opportunity to meet the designers, architects and water-test the boats over the course the of the event.

With the announcement of 120 new models to be launched at this year’s festival, the 2018/2019 boat market can expect to see a vibrant year ahead.

Insiders predict the spotlight will be on the following world premieres:

The Sunreef 60 and 80 Sailing Catamarans, both positioned to be ideal luxury charter and transoceanic adventure yachts.

With its exceptionally large flybridge; there is massive excitement to discover the offering of the new Fountaine Pajot 67 Sailing Catamaran.

Fairline Yachts are bringing back a classic with the release of the new Fairline Targa 43 Open, envisioned to be a more-than worthy successor of the original masterpiece.

Consistent with the Sun Odyssey line reputation, the new Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 410 is expected to be a stunning sailboat for its size.

Besides the 600+ boats on display, measuring 5 to 55 metres, the Cannes Yachting Festival stages a wealth of boating solutions and accessories. Our highlights include the opportunity to view the latest innovations in boat stabilization from Seakeeper, advancements in engine fuel-efficiency from Volvo and Mercury engines and award winning marine fishing and marine electronics from Lowrance.
