The Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes is fast becoming the Med show of choice for European boatbuilders, so why not whisk yourself away to the Cannes Boat Show 2013?

Possibly the easiest sell in the boat show calendar, Cannes is a great place to go full stop, but it’s even better when the Vieux Port is full of boats. This year’s show will take place from 10-15 September. Check back regularly for any updates and news.

Boats
Although there are craft of all sizes here, there’s no mistaking its big boat friendliness, with 21 vessels over 98ft and a few over 165ft. Don’t be deterred though, there are still 200 boats between 20ft and 50ft. Boats exhibiting include the Ferretti 960, the Couach Nornet, the Cranchi Eco Trawler Long Distance 53 and the Bayliner Element
