The Cannes Yachting Festival will kick off in just a few days time. Hosted from 6th to 11th September at the Cannes Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto, the Show will kick off the yacht show season with over 550 yachts on display, almost 500 exhibitors, and in excess of 50,000 visitors.
Amongst the highlights at the Show this year will be the global launch of Turkish shipyard Sarp Yachts’ very first superyacht, the Sarp 46. Measuring 46 metres, she will be one of the largest yachts on display.
The 46 metre Fast superyacht from Baglietto featuring designs from Francesco Paszkowski will also enjoy her official unveiling in Cannes following her completion this summer, whilst the largest vessel on display is set to be the 52 metre Tommy, built by the Italian shipyard Benetti in 1995. An impressive total of 92 global launches will be made throughout the week.
New to the event this year is the introduction of a new area: La Terrasse (click to see at Facebook). Ideally situated at the departure of the VIP shuttles, this new privileged area overlooks the old port and its 500 yachts on one side, and the Cannes bay and Croisette on the other, and is reserved exclusively for luxury stakeholders across the luxury goods, superyacht and automobile sectors.
Tickets for the Cannes Yachting Festival can be purchased online until 5th September. Both the Sales and Editorial teams of SuperYacht Company will be present in Cannes next week.
