After yet another successful event in 2022, the organisers of the Cannes Yachting Festival are excepting even more from this year’s show.


An anticipated 55,000 avid boaters, professionals, and seasoned enthusiasts alike will once again be able to view the world’s finest boats, yachts, accessories, and even a superyacht, or two.

Over 650 craft of varying sizes (ranging from five to fifty metres), located in both Vieux Port (motor) and Port Canto (sail), will grace the event, and as usual, expect a number of world premiers from the industry’s biggest shipyards.


As per tradition, Vieux Port will be home to motor-power, with a range of petrol, diesel, hybrid and full electric craft ranging from 5 to 45 metres on show. Here, motor enthusiasts will find an exceptional variety of products, totalling more than 480 boats in the water and on land.

The Jetée will host the Super Yachts Extension (SYE) comprising of three floating pontoons which will feature thirty superyachts of over 24 metres.

Continuing on from the Super Yachts Extension, the Quai Max Laubeuf will present a number of large yachts including twenty catamarans up to 24 metres long and 12 metres in beam.


Vieux Port: Located in the heart of the city, Vieux Port is one of the oldest harbours on the French Riviera.

More than 40 small boats from 10 metres will also be exhibited on-water in the quay and around fifty small rigid and semi-rigid units from 5 to 10 metres will be exhibited on land.

The Quai Saint-Pierre will be the on-water home of the industry’s most stylish dayboats, motorboats, centre consoles and motoryachts, with the Pantiero quay showcasing a wide range of motoryachts up to 20 metres long.
