With less than two months to go before it opens, anticipation is riding high for the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival.
From 6 to 11 September, Europe’s largest in-water show becomes the first major international event of the season. Vistors can explore the latest yachts, innovative nautical equipment, exclusive high-end services and much more on display.
“Thanks to the renewed confidence of our exhibitors, this 2022 edition is shaping up to be a very good one with projections for 550 exhibitors and 140 previews, in line with the previous year,” says Sylvie Ernoult, director of the Yachting Festival.
“There are more boats and we hope that close to 640 units will be exhibited. Our visitors will enjoy discovering some real gems in-water and on land, boats of all types, equipped with traditional engines or anticipating the future with the first on-board electric, hybrid or hydrogen power systems,” she adds. “We are delighted to support our exhibitors in their eco-friendly development by enabling them to showcase their innovations, in particular through our ‘Green Route’ and ‘Innovation Village’.
“Little by little, the nautical industry is improving its environmental footprint and we too are following suit by developing our own eco-responsible commitments within the framework of the organisation of this exhibition — for example: less paper, better waste management, etcetera.”
The full current list of exhibitors is now available on the Festival website, with more still being added daily.
Global premieres set to take place at Cannes include the Sunseeker 100 Yacht, Riva’s 102 Corsaro Super, 56 Fly by Absolute Yachts, 70 Sunreef Power, and Benetti Oasis 34.
