Britain’s most prominent motor yacht brands have chosen Sevenstar Yacht Transport to ship their yachts to the Cannes Yachting Festival. No less than nine yachts ranging from 52-feet to 88-feet, from four high-flying brands – Princess, Sunseeker, Fairline and Pearl – are on board the M.V. Egmondgracht and will arrive in Cannes by the end of August, well in time for the Boat Show starting September 9.

Managing Director Iain Smallridge of Pearl Motor Yachts states, "The co-operation with Sevenstar Yacht Transport was again flawless and their timing for this sailing was spot-on. For quite some time now, Sevenstar has shipped every boat for us within Europe and it is a pleasure working with their team. At Pearl Motor Yachts, we are making the final arrangements for the Cannes Yachting Festival, where our much anticipated Pearl 65 will be launched. We are confident that she will be a great success!"

Their service has been impeccable again, with a sailing perfectly planned and on time as promised from Southampton for the Cannes Yachting Festival, as we requested."

The Cannes Yachting Festival is the first boat show in the Mediterranean of the season, running from September 9-14. It brings together the key players in pleasure boating and international luxury yachting, from exhibitors showcasing their new vessels, products, services to visitors, yacht owners and future buyers. Some 580 boats will be on display.
