There is nowhere like the Mediterranean as the weather heats up for summer and there is nowhere hotter, more chic or exciting than the French Riviera for the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival – two of the world’s most prestigious events hosted along this beautiful stretch of coastline.
So why not immerse yourself in the harbour side glamour on board a luxury yacht?
The Monaco Grand Prix is an annual event that takes place in the streets of Monte Carlo and is one of the most challenging Formula 1 races in the world, attracting attention from motorsport enthusiasts and the rich and famous alike. A yacht charter during the Monaco Grand Prix is the ultimate way to experience this event. Not only do you get to watch the race from the comfort of your own yacht, but you also get to enjoy the luxurious amenities that come with it. Imagine sipping champagne in the jacuzzi while watching the cars whizzing by, or having a gourmet meal on the sun deck prepared by your personal chef as you soak up the electric atmosphere.
In May the French Riviera hosts the annual Cannes Film Festival, perhaps the most famous celebration of cinema in the world. The festival is known for its glitz and glamour and the red carpets draw the crème-de-la-crème of the movie industry to show off their films and fashion. While the streets and hotels may be packed with people, a yacht offers a peaceful and private oasis where you can relax on the deck, soak up the sun, and enjoy the spectacle away from the crowds.
A yacht is also a great way to entertain guests or clients if you are attending these events on business. Chartering a luxury yacht offers accommodation and event space in one while impressing your associates with a unique and unforgettable experience.
The French Riviera is home to luxury yachts of all shapes and sizes which can be chartered for a few days to attend one of the events or for a few weeks to incorporate business and pleasure or even a full tour of the Mediterranean over the summer months. We are delighted to share our pick of luxury yachts available to charter during these fabulous events.
