Benetti's 180-foot Ocean Paradise will be Largest Boat at Cannes Yachting Festival
August 12, 2014
With market intelligence stating an increase in demand for boats from 25m plus, Cannes Yachting Festival leads the way for those interested in the world's finest boats – with both sails and engines, mono and multi-hulls, ranging between 5 – 55m.
Formerly known as Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes, the rebranded Cannes Yachting Festival, sees some the world's finest shipyards present their latest releases in the Vieux Port, including the Mythos 122 from Riva, the fleet's largest and first to be constructed from aluminium, the solar powered Shipman 59 by Seaway Yachts, the new Beneteau Oceanis 60 for super slick sailing, the premiere of the Hardtop Otam 58 and the ultimate boy's toy Frauchser's 747 Mirage.
At the opposite end of the Croisette, in the recently renovated Port Pierre Canto, guests of the festival can look to buy fifty second-hand yachts exhibited by the world's most important brokers and see a combination of motor and sail charter boats, for example Let It Be (Heesen Yachts) from Burgess and Inmocean (Fitzroy Yachts) from Denison.
Cannes Yachting Festival takes place each year in the glittering Bay of Cannes. This year sees major renovations to Cannes' marinas being completed and looks set to welcome over 50,000 visitors to the show. In addition to the charter boats, second-hand boats and world premieres from the famous shipyards, guests will also be able to enjoy new spaces for day-boats, Toys and RIBS, purchase gear in the Equipment Village as well as wander the new Shopping Village selling lifestyle brands.
