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.

Stats: 36.2 metres, Benetti, 2009, 9 guests, 6 crew

With her forest-green hull and traditional-looking lines, W Explorer is sure to turn heads when dropping anchor in Cannes. Her sundeck was completely refurbished in 2016 to become the standout feature of the superyacht; a Jacuzzi, al fresco dining, cocktail bar and al fresco dining setup complemented by a state-of-the-art surround sound system set the scene for hosting glamorous after-parties during the festival. For more formal dinner parties, a dining table for eight offers al fresco dining on the main deck in any weather, protected by windbreakers and equipped with infrared heating. A well-stocked toybox including SeaBobs, waterskiing gear, a windsurfer and three Jet Skis will help guests explore further when embarking on an extended cruise of the Mediterranean post-Cannes.

W Explorer is managed by Burgess with a weekly charter rate starting from €75,000.
