Since 1977, the Cannes Yachting Festival takes place every September in elegant, luxurious surroundings in the sparkling bay of Cannes.

As the first show in the boating season, the Cannes Yachting Festival is Europe’s leading in-water boating event. The major players in pleasure yachting come here to launch the show season by showcasing their new worldwide models.

Exhibitors and visitors meet in two exceptional French Riviera ports: The Vieux Port and The Port Canto.

Nearly 600 boats measuring 5 to 55 metres are displayed in water and on land in these two ports, including 120 world premieres. The shipyards offer trips out to sea so that new buyers can try out the finest yachts in the world and make an informed choice.


From Tuesday 10 to Sunday 15 September 2019 from 10 am to 7pm

Late opening until 10 pm Friday 13 September. Closed at 6 pm on Sunday.

In 2019, the Cannes Yachting Festival will orchestrate this event by moving more than 110 sailing boats, monohulls and multihulls to Port Canto to host the largest exhibition of new sail boats in the world.

Port Canto will continue to host the “Brokerage” area for second-hand boats from 22+ metres and the “Toys” area.

The Vieux Port will be fully dedicated to new build motor boats and yachts.

A free shuttle service, maritime and on land, will provide the link between the two ports.
