{Cannes Yachting Festival} VIDEO. Aboard a Connected Boat

Welcome to the Cannes Yachting Festival, Europe’s leading in-water boat show and the must-attend nautical event of the season.

It’s right here, just footsteps away from the celebrated Palais des Festivals, that we delight in the latest innovations—not on the silver screen, but in seaborne luxury and speed.

On the menu for this year’s edition, the connected boat.
