With September drawing to a close, and winter fast approaching, it must be time to start thinking about this year’s Caribbean yacht charter.
The 35th Cannes International Boat Show took place between the 16th and 19th September in the festival town of Cannes, on the French Riviera. As the first of the season’s post-summer yachting exhibitions it provided the first opportunity for those considering their next luxury yacht charter to see what is available.
Held just before the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show, which concluded this weekend, the exhibition in Cannes was every bit as anticipated in the yachting calendar. In fact the event, which is popular with brokers offering Caribbean yacht charter options, is the larger of the two with Cannes topping the table with the number of ‘in-water’ boats of any European yacht show. And, with more than 583 boats on display in water and on land, a third of which will be on shown for the first time, it’s also the place to come if you are looking to purchase, not just charter.
Held in the town’s wonderfully atmospheric ‘Vieux Port’, as well as Port Pierre Canto, a stone’s throw from the famous La Croisette, The Cannes Boat Show offers sailing enthusiasts the opportunity to preview and talk to the brokers of these fine yachts. Dolmen Yachts was, of course, in attendance, finding the ideal vessels for our client’s next luxury yacht charter.
Exhibitors, visitors and organisers have declared this year’s show a resounding success. A total of 45,600 visitors came through the turnstiles across the six days of the show, slightly more than last year by 1%. There was also a marked increase in international visitors from regions such as Russia, China, South America, as well as the key markets of Europe.
Monaco has just enjoyed one of its busiest and most successful Grand Prix to date – but the Principality still has a number of exciting events to host this summer, making it the ideal luxury yacht charter destination.
