CANNES, AN EXCEPTIONAL TRADE SHOW AT THE HEART OF THE FRENCH RIVIERA

The Yachting Festival will host  an eclectic offer of nearly 650 boats, from 5 to 45 meters on-water and less than 10 meters ashore. These boats are sailing or motor, monohull or multihull, rigid or semi-rigid hull.

The Athenian Yachts team , the exclusive dealer of Jeanneau and the official dealer of Lagoon and Bali in Greece, represented by our Sales, Crewed and Bareboat chartering departments, is going to have a strong presence in Cannes Yachting Festival, participating in the unveiling of the world’s largest boat builders’ latest models, and meeting with brokers and agencies from all around the globe. 

VIEUX PORT

Cannes’ Vieux Port is one of the oldest harbours on the French Riviera. It enjoys a privileged place in the heart of the city of Cannes at the edge of an idyllic seafront and at the foot of Le Suquet hill. The image would be incomplete without the Lérins islands facing it. The port is bordered to the west by the boarding quay for the islands and to the east by the famous Albert-Edouard jetty along the Palais des Festivals, providing more than half a kilometer of quayside to accommodate all the large yachts.

In 2022, the Vieux Port will host more than 530 prestigious new motor boats ranging from 5 to 45 metres in-water in length, presented by the world’s leading shipyards and featuring many new products.

Vieux Port is also the setting of the Luxury Gallery, an area dedicated to luxury and the art of living. 

PORT CANTO

On the other side of the Croisette, the Port Canto is the setting of the Sailing Area. In 2022, it will bring more than 120 new sailing boats ranging from 10 to 28 metres in length, both monohull and multihull, with more than 20 global launches. These boats will be exhibited in-water facing the stands of the shipyards, equipment manufacturers and service companies. This large area is entirely dedicated to sailing. It adds another atmosphere to the trade show.

The Yacht Brokerage & Toys Area in Port Canto accommodates about 40 from 22 to 56 metres in length previously owned boats in-water, available for sale or hire. The space on land is occupied by the nautical toys which have become must-have accessories for big yachts or for a day at the beach.
