A clear indication that the industry is thriving can be felt when visiting some of the major events on the yachting calendar. The success of shows, such as the Cannes Yachting Festival is a prime example of that the Europen market keeps recovering.
The biggest on-water boat show in Europe closed its doors last Sunday with over 51,000 visitors. There was a 2% increase in the number of attendees over the previous year. The city of cinema host nearly 600 vessels between Cannes Old Port and Port Pierre Canto.
The revamped Cannes Yachting Festival ticks all the boxes with prominent exhibitors and prestigious superyachts alike. The scene has definitely been set and I am already looking forward to the 2017 edition.
