The Most Spectacular Superyachts in The Med
Ahead of the Cannes Film Festival, 17-28 May, Borrow A Boat Plus founder & CEO shares his guide to the flashiest superyachts in the Med.
Every spring the world’s eyes turn to the French Riviera for the Cannes Film Festival, and interest is never solely on the year’s big-screen offerings. The lure of the festival is such, that for ten days every May, the world’s rich and famous descend to network and party on some of the world’s most exclusive superyachts.
Matt Ovenden, founder & CEO of Borrow A Boat Plus, one of the world’s leading superyacht charter marketplace’s, says: “Every year the Cannes Film Festival plays host to the world’s glitterati, along with some of the flashiest, most outrageously decadent superyachts in the world.
“The event is a sure highlight of the yearly yachting calendar, no doubt because the French Riviera is a mecca for yachting. Boasting turquoise waters, an abundance of white sandy beaches, the balmy Mediterranean climate, easy access to vibrant nightlife, world-class restaurants and bars… it’s not difficult to see why.
“Whether you’re heading to the film festival or just curious to see how the other half live, yachting in this area of the world is truly something special and makes for one of the world’s most luxurious and memorable boating experiences.”
