The Cannes Film Festival is the most famous film festival in the world and the only one where private charter yachts serve as luxury accommodation, floating offices and entertainment centers.
The formal program takes place in the "Palais des Festivals" - the main convention center in Cannes where there are several theaters showing movies nearly non-stop for 10 days. The Palais is directly next to the Old Port of Cannes and it´s a long standing practice to charter a super yacht and use it to attract and entertain clients. It is quite an amazing site to see many of the world´s nicest Super Yachts all lined up along the Jetee Edouard Albert, resplendent in the branding of the key players of the film industry.
Screenings and parties abound all over Cannes, in exclusive hotels, beach parties and, of course, many of the world’s finest yachts, gathered in the famous old port next to the Palais. Chartering a yacht has been in vogue since the very beginning of the Festival’s history in 1946, and it remains the most glamorous setting for promoting your company during this high profile event.
A luxury yacht offers the ideal base for companies during the Film Festival, offering easy access to all the main events, as well as great impact for your branding in this highly visible location. By day the yacht can be used for private meetings and screenings, with catering provided by the professional Crew on board. By night, the yacht becomes a chic venue for hosting cocktails, dinners and parties, with all the service and trimmings of a top club.
Here are the charter yachts available for this year:
Santa Maria – motor yacht - accommodation for 6/8 Guests in double cabins - One Twin - Convertible - Huge Deck Space for up to 100 guests when safely moored at quay - Disco Sound System on Top Deck !!!
