51,000 visitors, 530 exhibitors from 40 countries and 630 motor as well as sailing yachts – these are the figures that make up the 39th “Cannes Yachting Festival”. At the beginning of September, Europe’s leading in-water boat show took place in Cannes on the Côte d’Azur. Anissa Mediouni, CEO of Engel & Völkers Yachting, was one of the exhibitors at the show together with her team. She reported as follows: “This year the event attracted a record number of visitors to the ‘Le Vieux Port’ and ‘Le Port Pierre Canto’ harbours in Cannes.”
Engel & Völkers Yachting showcased two very special yachts at the event: the 23-metre sailing yacht “Gigreca” and the 24-metre motor yacht “Maria Teresa”. “Gigreca” was built at the “Admiral” shipyard in Italy, and marks the production of their very first sailing yacht. Meanwhile, “Maria Teresa” was originally a transport ship and has since been transformed and refitted into a luxurious feel-good yacht.
