Cannes Yachting Festival 2016

Europe's largest on-water yacht show review

The Cannes yachting festival 2016 saw some fabulous weather which made for great inspiration to be yachting on the Cote D’Azur.

The festival had a marvellous variation of offerings from jet powered surf boards to industry leading 30 plus meter yachts.

The star of the show for us was the Riva (Ferritti group) the Italian presence was made known from the moment you approached the show with a striking black Riva 44 raised up at the entrance gates, on the water the fabulous new Riva Florida blew us away with its beautiful open deck space and slick profile.

The British brands where there in the form of Sunseeker and Princess both of which with a fantastic range on display and both launching exciting new entry level cruisers In the shape of the Sunseeker 53 and the Princess 49.

The festival was bigger and better than ever we are already looking forward to 2017.
