I consider Cannes one of the most important shows of the year with more than five hundred boats on display in water and on land, 160 of which will be shown for the first time ever. Cannes shows into the two exceptional French Riviera sites, the ‘Vieux Port’ and ‘Port Pierre Canto’, located at either end of the famous Croisette, just right for hosting Europe’s leading in-water boat show. Cannes is what is considered by many the first gathering of the season, coming on the heels of the end of Summer and going into the fall of the year, this show brings together the key players in pleasure boating and international luxury yachting, whether they be exhibitors showcasing their new vessels, products and services with visitors, yacht owners or future buyers enthusiastic and eager to take advantage of a unique opportunity offered by this show: the sea trials! Along the quays and pontoons, the show’s well-informed visitor will enthusiastically discover, in a unique atmosphere, the finest vessels on offer today from shipyards around the world, floating gems gathered together in a single showcase. A lot of important World Previews; Galeon will show for the first time ever the new flagship 780 Crystal, Absolute 40 Fly 40 STY 43 STY and 53 STY, Adagio 58 Europa, Alen Yacht 425, Apreamare 45 Smeraldo, Atlantis 58, Austin Parker AP54 Fly, Azimut 45 Fly and 120 SL, Beneteau 49 Flyer Gran Turismo, Bluegame 40, Bilgin 145, Cantieri delle Marche 86 Darwin, Cranchi 30 Endurance 35 M 40 M and Fifty 8 Fly, Ferretti 720, Ferretti Custom Line 100 and 33 Navetta Crescendo, Fiart 58 Genius, Greenline 70 Hybrid Ocean Class, Itama Forty Five, Jeanneau NC9, Princess 60 and V72, Riva 27 Iseo, Sealine SC42, Sessa C44 and 45 Fly, Sunseeker 53 Manhattan, Unica 50, Uniesse 55 Sport.
