The Côte d’Azur is blooming again, after a forced cancellation by Covid-19 in 2020, the Cannes Yacht Festival starts with fantastic weather as you are used to from the French Riviera. From September 7 – September 12, 2021, you will find in Cannes the most beautiful yachts and boats from the most renowned yacht builders.
The azure coast awakens longings, for long sunny days, magnificent beaches, Mediterranean villages and beautiful nature. From September on, the yacht industry and well-heeled buyers looking for their own yacht finally gather in Cannes again. Until deep into the night, you can hear loud cork popping of champagne bottles, relieving laughter and experience a super balanced mood of the guests in Cannes on these days.
The Cannes Yacht Festival
The Cannes Yacht Festival was founded in 1977 as a boat show in Cannes. Every September, the Mediterranean city in France presents around 600 boats in its ports, including motor yachts, superyachts, catamarans, tenders and sailing yachts.
Owning your own yacht, not a dream for many wealthy people – financing makes it possible
Anyone who has been to a yacht show and admired the interiors of these fantastic, handcrafted one-offs, or even had the opportunity to take a short ride on a 50 meter or longer yacht, knows how hard it is to leave or not be allowed to call this unique luxury their own.
That’s why there are fantastic flexible financing methods that make a yacht affordable and ensure that you and your family or entourage can fully enjoy the last rays of sunshine this year while indulging in a unique luxury on the high seas.
Together with our service partner, we offer them the appropriate financing of assets from 1 million pounds. We have many years of experience with the financing of yachts and superyachts and are also happy to advise you on site with a glass of the finest champagne and in a suitable atmosphere. With yacht financing it does not matter whether you want to buy a new yacht or whether you want to buy a used yacht. We make both possible.
Advantages of yacht financing
The ulterior motive of a yacht financing is obvious. Because this financing offers the possibility not to tie the own financial reserves to this intention to buy a yacht.
By own organization possibilities regarding the capital participation in the purchase price as well as the increased final installment at the financing end, personally coordinated monthly debits are possible.
The advantages of yacht financing allow you to keep your liquidity free for other business activities. Customized yacht financing is also possible during the construction phase of your yacht, if you want to have your individual yacht built by a shipyard.

But let’s get back to the Cannes Yacht Festival
In Cannes, the festival takes place in two ports, Vieux Port and Port Pierre Canto.
Since 2019, the division has changed a bit. The sailing yachts are exhibited in the Port Canto at the other end of the Croisette. There are also, as always, the brokerage area. The motor yachts can be viewed at the Vieux Port.
The different locations are about 15 minutes apart by boat or bus shuttle. Which is not much of a challenge though, as all you have to do is show your ticket to be transported from one site to the other for free. I think it’s a fantastic idea, as I always manage to meet fantastic new people to interact with on this short distance.
Then there is another advantage for the guests of the fair, through this division, 1,000 running meters of additional berths were created, which is an increase of 7% compared to 2018.
The Cannes yacht show is much more than just boats and ships
For several years, the organizer of the Cannes Yacht Festival also offers an extra area for unique luxury goods for visitors to the show. From fine fabrics to exclusive accessories to luxury cars of the special class. A visit is definitely worth it, I can only say that every year I get to know something new and fantastic in this area.
Getting to the Cannes Yachting Festival
From Nice airport you can take a shuttle bus directly to Cannes or hop on the 200 and 210 buses that go directly to Cannes. If you prefer to travel to the Cannes Yachting Festival in style, you can book a helicopter from Nice airport and be at the action in 7 minutes for about 500 euros.
Where to stay during the Cannes Yachting Festival
Right up front, book a hotel in advance because because of the event most hotels are booked up right away. Tip from us, book a hotel for example in Antibes. Antibes is a resort between Cannes and Nice on the French Riviera.
Antibes is known for its old town, which is surrounded by fortification walls from the 16th century, beautiful. Also with moorings for yachts. If you’re lucky, you’ll see a superyacht or two here without a lot of crowds.
What boats will be at the Cannes Yachting Festival?
Since the 2021 Düsseldorf Boat Show was canceled, this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival can absolutely hold its own with a large fleet of 450 motor yachts and 115 sailboats.
