Yachthub Group at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023

As is now custom, Yachthub Group made another triumphant appearance at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival, which was held from the 12th till the 17th September 2023.

The month of September marks the return of the now legendary Cannes Yachting Festival, with boating enthusiasts and industry giants flocking to the glamorous shores of France’s best-known Riviera. Since its inception in 1977, the Cannes Yachting Festival has attracted the great and the good – as well as the latest – in the world of boating. It is officially the first show of the boating season, taking place in elegant and luxurious surroundings towards the end of the summer period.

As Europe’s leading in-water boating event, major players in pleasure yachting congregate in Cannes to showcase their new premiere. Among them this year was the Yachthub Group team, taking the lead with their formidable collection of brands.

This year’s fleet consisted of the following marks, as well as a select number of models which took centre stage in the Cannes Harbour:


As a staple performer at the Cannes Yachting Festival, Sunseeker never fails to impress. This year’s collection featured the show debut of the Superhawk 55 and the Sport Yacht 75, which turned many a head with their presence. Other models included the Manhattan 55, Predator 65, Manhattan 68, Yacht 76, Yacht 88, 90 Ocean and 100 Yacht.

We’re also pleased to announce that Sunseeker was awarded two trophies at the festival. The Superhawk 55 won Best Exterior Design in the 45’ to 64’ yacht category, while the Ocean 182 won Best Layout in the 80’ to  98’ yacht category.

Axopar and Brabus Marine

Presented at stand numbers QML 179 and QML 321, Yachthub Group presented an impressive collection of Axopar and Brabus Marine vessels, showcasing the robust wonders of this Scandinavian alliance. Boats which were up for sea trial included the Axopar 45 XC Cross Cabin, Axopar 45 Cross Top / Sun-Top, Axopar 37 XC Cross Cabin and the BRABUS Shadow 900 Sun-Top. Meanwhile, boats on show within the marina were the Axopar 45 Cross Top / Sun-Top, Axopar 37 Sun-Top, Axopar 28 Cabin, BRABUS Shadow 900 XC Cross Cabin Black Ops and BRABUS Shadow 500 T-Top. Finally, the boats chosen for display were the Axopar 25 Cross Top, Axopar 22, and the BRABUS Shadow 300 Quantum White.

Bavaria Yachts

Bavaria Yachts kicked off the Cannes season with the world premiere of the new BAVARIA C46. Nominated for Europe’s Yacht of the Year 2024, the new BAVARIA C46 exhibits the proven Made-in-Germany solidity, combined with a further improved sailing performance and a heightened feel-good factor on board. The BAVARIA C46 develops, interprets and expands the design concept of the German shipyard’s successful C-LINE, redefining standards in its category. Her success as a vessel have been made possible by pronounced chines and a V-bow, which had already achieved excellent sailing characteristics in the previous BAVARIA C38 and C42. 

Other brands which were brought forward to the festival were Cranchi and Nautitech, sealing Yachthub Group’s position as a titan on the Mediterranean boating industry.


Our team look forward to hearing from you.
