Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes a Success for Camper & Nicholsons
Once again, the Festival de Plaisance de Cannes was a resounding success for Camper & Nicholsons with a fine line-up of nine motor and sailing yachts at the show, and a further six at anchor.
Now in its 36th year, the show is the first major yachting event of the season and opened its doors last week to a host of industry professionals and keen yachting enthusiasts as well as existing and new buyers alike. Over 580 yachts were on display, 150 of which made their world debut, both within the show and at anchor in the beautiful surroundings of the Old Port and Port Canto in Cannes.
As the only brokerage house fully present at both the Old Port and Port Canto, Camper & Nicholsons made its mark with a selection of outstanding motor and sailing yachts on display ranging from 23.5m (77’) to 44.2m (145’) in length and €2,750,000 to €12,750,000 in price. A further six yachts offered for sale and charter through Camper & Nicholsons were situated at anchor and were available for viewings via a fleet of elegant high-speed VIP tenders provided by our partners at J Craft. A luxurious selection of the latest, Mercedes-Benz S-Class Mercedes were also at our clients’ disposal for the duration of the show before even being available for sale in France, thanks to Mercedes-Benz Monaco.
An array of exclusive social events hosted by Camper & Nicholsons took place throughout the week both on-board the yachts and ashore alongside our partners including an invite-only cocktail evening on board sailing yacht Northern Spirit. On the Thursday evening in partnership with Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, OnboardOnline and Med Yacht Services, we hosted what was undisputedly the best end of summer Crew Bash of the year with over 350 guests sporting purple wristbands and sunglasses in the convivial setting of Port Canto's Restaurant Yvette. The crew were entertained late into the night with live music from the well-known Blah Blah band and as much free beer, wine and delicious food as they could manage.
