Indeed, setting sail near huge yachts is an amazing experience and who knows, maybe you’ll be invited to spend an afternoon on the yacht’s dock.

It is not uncommon to spend an afternoon speaking with fellow sailors over a coffee overlooking the port.

Pricing and Information


As in all of France, the French Riviera's high season is typically starting from early May to mid-September. In addition to the high season, there are several regional events that can cause a spike in the amount of tourists. For yacht charters in Cannes, we recommend booking well in advance. Due to the luxury of the area, prices will be a bit higher than most other areas during this season. On average, you can expect to pay around 450€ per day for a catamaran and 250€ per day for a sailboat. For motorboats, the range is very wide depending on your needs. The inventory in Cannes ranges from luxury yachts to fishing boats, so it is recommended to sort by the type of activity you will partake in. 


If you wish to charter a bareboat, you will have to keep in mind that France does not explicitly require a license, but you will need to provide a nautical cv detailing all of your previous experience. We recommend to bring all licenses as well as a detailed summary of where you previously chartered and what type of boat you captained. For motorboats, you are required to possess a license, except for inland waters and canal boats. 


Overview of Cannes


The image of Cannes is associated solely with glitz and glamour and although this might be true, the city has something special to offer for a large spectrum of tourists. The turquoise waters mixed with white sandy beaches and the charm of the old town will make you see the city differently and solidify the idea that Cannes is one of the most charming resorts in the world.


After you walk along La Croisette and see the luxury and elegance of this old fishing town, charter a yacht and enjoy the abundant sunshine. The sailing conditions in Cannes are ideal with winds that are moderate and waves that are relatively calm. Take in the scenery from the water as you see the beautiful contrast between the distinct architecture and the water. From Cannes, you can easily sail over to the Lérins Islands to experience a completely different scenery. You’ll be met with the fresh scent of pine while exploring unspoiled hidden beaches at Île Sainte-Marguerite.


Cannes is famous in all corners of the world. Its old port is considered as an essential place to sail by sailors.
