12 superyachts to charter at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival

Held just a stone’s throw from Vieux Port de Cannes on the French Riviera, the Cannes Film Festival lures the superyacht crowd to the south of France each spring. The harbour is the centre of the action, with the red carpet that welcomes filmmakers, movie stars and celebrities to the Palais des Festivals running right past the docks. The Cannes Film Festival is a highlight of the yearly yachting calendar and booking a charter is the best way to soak up all of the glamour – or to host an unforgettable movie premiere after-party. With the 75th edition fast approaching from May 17 to 28, 2022 (just before the start of the F1 Grand Prix in nearby Monaco), it’s time to book a charter yacht to attend the event in superyacht style.
