The Setting

The event will bring together all sailing boats, monohulls, multihulls, sailing yachts, motor yachts, tenders and day boats. There will be two locations. Porto/Pierre Canto will be a “brokerage” area for pre-owned boats from 22 meters up. It is also the site for the “Toys.” and will serve as the sail area with 100 large sailing boats. This will make it the largest sailing exhibition in the world. Top charter yachts are also in the port for charterers to examine. Vieux Port, on the other hand, will be for the nautical motor industry exhibit. There will also be another display for luxury and lifestyle in the Luxury Gallery. Debuts of the largest models will be in here. To provide the link between the ports, there will be a free shuttle service on land and in water.
