Yacht Charter: A Must-Try for Cannes Film Festival

Cannes Film Festival

The prestigious and highly anticipated 74th Cannes Film Festival is scheduled to take place on the 6th of July, having been postponed from its original early May date due to the pandemic. This star-studded event will attract some of the world’s most prominent filmmakers and actors. Some will be coming to watch exclusive premieres, while others will be hoping for their work to be recognised with a major award. But one thing is certain – most attendees will simply be happy to have an excuse to visit this stunning part of the world.

Picturesque beaches, buzzing nightlife, charming streets, world-class food scene – it’s no wonder Cannes is a hotspot for the rich and the famous. And among their favourite ways to enjoy this French Riviera city is by yacht. Cannes is known for its yachting culture, with many ports along its coastline. The weeks approaching and after the film festival are its peak season, with plenty of different charter options on offer. Rest assured that they will be subject to strict health protocols to keep passengers safe. So, if you want the ultimate luxury travel experience, there is no excuse not to make your yacht dream happen this summer.

Since the Cannes Film Festival is held at Palais des Festival in Cannes Vieux Port, it is no wonder that there is such a strong association between yachts and this cinematic event. In fact, the red carpet walk is just outside the Palais, which places it in full view from the port. Just picture yourself soaking up the lively, glamorous atmosphere from the comfort of a 156m Dilbar, a 143m Sailing Yacht, or perhaps even a private superyacht in stunning 55m Turquoise. You’ll experience what it’s like to live like a celebrity, enjoying the best that life has to offer.  

And sightseeing isn’t the only thing you can do on a Cannes Film Festival yacht charter. If you’re in search of exclusive accommodation, or looking to organise an elegant soirée, why not do it by yacht? Avail of a static yacht charter along the quay by the Palais des Festival so you can host your own events at sea. You can even throw parties on board, provided you follow the COVID-19 protocols to ensure safety among your guests. You can also incorporate the event into your luxury yacht charter journey along the spectacular French Riviera, and watch the festivities from there while docked in either the Port Canto or the Old Port for the day. Find some peace over at Saint-Tropez, Antibes, or Nice if you want to escape the buzz of the festival for a while.

Whatever you decide, a yacht charter is guaranteed to make your Cannes Film Festival experience a memorable one.
