Cannes Film Festival Attracts Super Yachts From All Over The Globe

The Cannes Film Festival, with its lovely setting on the breathtaking Mediterranean Sea, is almost synonymous with the superyachts it attracts.

Yachts at Cannes make up its own subculture in the festival’s festivities. Super yachts are anchored on the Cannes harbor, but about 60 A-list boats are parked along the jetty Albert Edouard in the shadow of the Palais, turning the jetty into a sort of luxury park on water.

Most yachts are rented by banks, private financiers and film commissions from around the world, and Hollywood agents will scanter up and down the docks looking for investors for their movies. Prices to rent these yachts range anywhere from $130,000 to $400,000 a week.
