Yachting Festival
from September 10 to 15, 2019,
Cannes – Vieux Port & Port Canto


Since 1977, the Yachting Festival has been held each year in the month of September, in an elegant, luxurious setting in the bay of Cannes.

The first show in the nautical season, the Yachting Festival is Europe’s most important nautical get-together afloat.

It brings together all the players on the boating scene who exhibit their new models at this world preview.

  • 51,000 visitors
  • More than 600 boats up to 50 metres
  • 542 exhibitors
  • 219 new models, 122 world previews

In 2019, the Yachting Festival is making a splash by gathering together all the sailboats, monohulls and multihulls, in a dedicated, specially prepared harbour.

With more than 100 sailboats in Port Canto, the Yachting Festival will thus become the world’s biggest exhibit of large new sailboats afloat, offering unparalleled visiting conditions for fans and buyers of boats.


The Yachting Festival presents sailing in all its diversity and richness on the occasion of the inauguration of the Espace Voile on Port Canto.

The Yachting Festival’s DNA also includes motorboats, whose past is awarded a place of honour in the “Elegance Contest”.


Dedicated to luxury, craftsmanship and the art of living, the Luxury Gallery is located inside the Palais des Festivals. Visitors discover this space offering elegant scenography as soon as they enter the fair.
