Cannes Yachting Festival has been the first to take place in the international yachting calendar since 1977 and therefore a forefront in showcasing new model launches and innovative designs. It had more than 51,000 visitors from five continents and 630 boats on show last year. Special events are expected to take place this year to celebrate the 40th-year milestone. 

Following the launch of La Terrasse during last year’s show, the Cannes Yachting Festival is unveiling the ‘Luxury Gallery’ situated within the Palais des Festivals which will be dedicated to premium brands outside of yachting.

This will include watches, jewellery, fine sprits, fashion and accessories, household decoration, linens, furniture, design, art, high-tech products and services.
