Luxury yachting events of the World

There are a handful of very important events in the luxury yachting calendar where superyachts are chartered to attend the event or the boating industry displays luxury yachts for sale. The Monaco Grand Prix is a unique event in the luxury yacht world where yachts are chartered as a luxurious base to see the motor racing. The Cannes Film festival is similar in that yachts are used as bases for accommodation, events and entertainment. The Monaco Yacht Show is the largest boat show for superyachts in the world. These 3 events all take place on the Cote d’ Azure region of France and Monaco in the Mediterranean where there is a great selection of yachts for charter.

The Monaco Yacht Show (MYS)

Every Monaco Yacht Show is bigger and better than the last, with more luxury superyachts (for charter and sale), designers and yacht builders exhibiting than ever before.

The Monaco Yacht Show is held annually in September at Port Hercules, Monaco, and brings together professionals from the international luxury yachting sector. Companies and individuals include luxury yacht builders, brokers, designers, equipment suppliers, and service providers and they gather to show off the latest and greatest luxury yachts for sale and charter in Monaco.

The Monaco Yacht Show is the only yacht show worldwide which is exclusively devoted to superyachts of over 25 meters in length. It is the largest floating luxury yacht display in Europe of super and megayachts. This makes the Monaco Yacht Show premiere showcase for Super Yachts.

Monaco Grand Prix

The Monaco Grand Prix has been held annually since 1929, in the Principality of Monaco. It is a Formula One race which is considered to be one of the most important and prestigious races anywhere in the world.

The Grand Prix race uses the actual city streets of Monte Carlo and La Condamine, which are specially prepared in advance. The cars race down right past the moored super yachts in Monaco harbour. The narrow course is made up of several tight corners, elevation shifts making it the most dangerous and demanding track still used for Formula One motor racing.

The Cannes Film Festival

The Cannes Film Festival, which takes place in Cannes, France, around May every year, is the most famous film festival in the world. This is the one hotspot event of the world where film stars and the rich and famous congregate around beautiful luxury yachts. It is also the only one where private charter yachts serve as luxury accommodation, floating offices and entertainment and party centers.

Normally a luxury yacht will berth right in the inner harbour, along side the Palais des Festivals Cannes, without leaving its berth - although berths are at a premium for the event and authority is required from the port many months in advance.
At the old port the sheer size and number of yachts, in such close proximity, makes the port of Cannes seem like a hotel for luxury yachts. This is where many of the VIPs stay and many of the private parties and private deals take place.

Experience the ultimate Cannes Film Festival accommodation aboard your own staffed luxury yacht. Ideal for either private individuals to corporate or large groups. Relax in the very proximate Cannes harbour and enjoy the finest wine food and service.

The America's Cup

The America's Cup is an exciting yacht racing event, with the last event having taken place in San Francisco in 2013. See more details and the dates for the next event by clicking the link provided here: AMERICA'S CUP.  Always an important event in the yachting calendar, The America's Cup attracts a flotilla of luxury yachts which are used as platforms to see the racing and to host entertainment functions.

Please contact a friendly CharterWorld yacht consultant if you would like more information about any of the above events or would like to view a  yacht.
