The Europe’s largest in-water Boat Show celebrated the 45th anniversary with an outstanding success. During the six very warm days, almost 650 boats (monohull and multihull, motor and sailing boats) and 135 world debuts, as well as the latest nautical equipment and numerous innovations, were revealed for 54,000 French and international visitors.
“In many ways 2022 will remain unforgettable, not only because we celebrated the 45th anniversary of the Festival but mainly because we reached our ambitious objective which was to exceed the results of the 2019 edition prior to Covid. We are proud of and happy with these results,” explains Sylvie Ernoult, Director of the Cannes Yachting Festival.
And the yachting industry has not escaped ecological awareness either. The Festival laid out a “Green Route”, showcasing more than 60 exhibitors which presented a concept in favour of the environment, giving its visitors the opportunity to learn more about this eco-friendly transition.
Moreover, an “Innovation Village” was installed in the sailing area to showcase “intelligent” start-ups in the nautical sector that cover boat design to putting owners in contact with captains.
While the Yacht Brokerage area accommodated the biggest boat at the Festival ever with an exceptional length of 73m.
The future of this Yacht Show looks brilliant and they are already waiting for us from next Sep-12 to Sept-17, 2023. See you in Cannes!
