Annually held in the fabled city of Cannes, the 37th edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival (also known as the Cannes Boat Show) took place between 9 and 14 September in the Bay of Cannes. Considered to be the Europe’s leading in-water exhibition, the Cannes Yachting Festival 2014 totally lived up to visitors’ expectations. The festival offered show goers the opportunity not only to preview some of the most outstanding yachts on the market for sale and for charter, but also to test them out at sea. Overall, the show welcomed more than 50 000 visitors and 480 exhibitors from 34 countries.
Among the show’s large array of exhibitors from around the world was also our partner Nautis, represented by Jérôme Fragnon. Visitors interested in affordable luxury yachts for co-ownership could learn more about SmartYacht’s current offers and about our concept from Jerome at the stand PAN 116.
Over the course of the six-day event, our exceptional offers received a great deal of interest from show goers. We ran a special promotion on the ¼ share of the Sunseeker Manhattan 66, which was available for 199 000 euro – an outstanding deal for a luxury yacht of this caliber.
Sunseeker 60 Manhattan was offered for 197 500 euro for ¼ share of the yacht. The beauty of a yacht ownership with SmartYacht is that you own a luxury vessel at a significantly reduced price and, yet, you get to feel like you are the solo yacht owner thanks to our unique system of yacht management. We have eliminated all hassles of yacht ownership from our yacht share holders and made sure that each one of them gets to enjoy their yacht throughout all seasons of the year, thus tackling the common misconception that boat share holders do not get to enjoy their yacht in high seasons.
Cannes Yachting Festival is among our favorite yacht events of the year. This fantastic international festival annually welcomes those, who work in or appreciate the yachting industry. The show is an excellent industry gathering for networking.
Exhibitors do not only present luxury yachts and grand sailing yachts, but also a variety of marine products and services. A selection of superyacht toys and tenders, yacht provisioning, and technical management companies also exhibited at the show.
