Each year, the Cannes Yachting Festival marks the end of summer or the beginning of the fall boat show season, depending on how you want to look at it. This year's event begins on September 12th and is the 46th edition of the show which attracts nearly 700 boats. Divided among two marinas this year - Vieux Port and Port Canto - there will be a new segment for smaller yachts this year ranging from 26 to 50-feet.
Several of the new boat brands represented by SI Yachts will have strong participation in this Cannes Yachting Festival highlighting the innovative and trend-setting progressions of each shipyard. While not all of these models will make it to the U.S. for the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in October, it will be a window into the future offerings from some of the most iconic builders in the world.
While we cannot cover every single boat in the show, we are experts on the below models that will be on display. If you are interested in receiving more information, pricing, and availability of any of the below boats, please send us an email at Sales@SIYachts.com or fill out the form on the page.
ABSOLUTE YACHTS ON DISPLAY AT CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL
The luxury flybridge yachts coming out of Italy in the last few years have created fierce competition between the shipyards there, and across the pond in the U.K. Companies like Sunseeker, Azimut, Ferretti, and others continue to invest millions in their equipment, facilities, and designs. Absolute Yachts doesn't produce the sheer volume that say an Azimut-Benetti shipyard does, but their model ranges offer fresh and innovative solutions that subtly enhance your comfort on board. The result has been a strong book of orders, along with the awards to back them up. At this year's Cannes Yachting Festival, you can see:
PARDO YACHTS ON DISPLAY AT CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL
SI Yachts has quickly become one of the largest dealers for Pardo Yachts in the country and it's easy to see why. Similar to Van Dutch in style (they're also a sister company at the same shipyard) this is a boat where you can make a statement. Sexy, remarkable lines make Pardo models impossible to miss on the water. The hallmarks of each boat, regardless of which model lines, include elegance, spaciousness, high performance, and the finest interiors. If you haven't set foot on a Pardo, find one at your next boat show.
PRESTIGE YACHTS ON DISPLAY AT CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL
The Prestige Yachts brand has always been about creating a 'luxury home on the water' that gives you the same sense of comfort and relaxation as your own. Models like the 590 FLY were a game changer for the French builder, allowing them to create a great value in an exceptional layout that owners could enjoy with multiple guests for weekend trips or longer. Can you imagine if Prestige built a power catamaran and how they would utilize that space? Now you don't have to with the Prestige M-line which will be on display at Cannes with their newest model.
PRINCESS YACHTS ON DISPLAY AT CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL
One of the most dominant and exciting displays at this year's Cannes Yachting Festival has to be that of Princess Yachts. Aside from displaying world-class models like the flagship Y95 and the S72 (above), this will also be the world premiere of the new Y80. The Princess display will be located at Vieux Port right in the heart of Cannes. See these Princess models at the Cannes Yachting Festival:
