Cannes Yachting Festival 2023

The Cannes Yachting Festival 2023, the post-summer show taking place between Vieux Port and Port Canto in the French town from September 12 to 17, is approaching. Several shipyards will present on the French Riviera for the first time in the water some new boats, or new versions of models already presented during the year.

There will be no shortage of new products at the Cannes Boat Show again this year, with more than 600 exhibitors and about 650 boats all to see. We have already unveiled some of the most anticipated powerboats we will have the opportunity to see at Cannes, but we will have time to discover more as the event, the first of the post-summer season, approaches. From watercraft to superyachts, there are always several brands at Cannes that decide to present their new models to the public. The show will be open to the public from Tuesday, Sept. 12, to Saturday, Sept. 16, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., while Sunday, Sept. 17,opening hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, September 15 is an opportunity to visit the show even after dark, as the exhibition area will be open until 10 p.m.

Cannes Yachting Festival 2023 – Where and When

Cannes Yachting Festival 2023 will be from Tuesday, September 12 to Sunday, September 17, 2023. There are two locations, connected by land or by sea, thanks to the shuttle service that allows travel between the two areas:

  • Port Canto, for sailboats, water toys and yacht brokerage
  • Vieux Port, for motor boats

The big news this year, however, is the area dedicated to smaller boats, the Small Boats area. This new in-water exhibition area is dedicated exclusively to powerboats between 8 and 11 meters in length. The docks will therefore be located at the Vieux Port, more specifically in the La Pantiero area, next to the dinghies and RIBs. There is curiosity to find out what is new in this segment, certainly one of the most demanded by the market, in the Mediterranean and beyond. We will tell you about these and other powerboats set to debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023.
