SUNSEEKER AT CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL 2023
Visitors to the preeminent yachting event of the season will have exclusive access to Sunseeker yachts from every product range up to 100 feet from Tuesday, 12 to Sunday, 17 September 2023. Set against the stunning backdrop of the French Riviera, this highly anticipated event promises to showcase Sunseeker excellence, innovation, and unrivalled luxury.
The Cannes Yachting Festival is the ultimate rendezvous for the world's most impressive and sought-after yachts. Now in its 46th edition, this year's festival is set to surpass all expectations as Sunseeker prepares to welcome guests with an exclusive VIP lounge and ultra-sophisticated Whispering Angel bar courtesy of Moët Hennessy.
The dramatic Sunseeker 100 Yacht in a midnight grey will take the show spotlight. Her all-grey exterior, teamed with a black hardtop, flashing glimpses of stainless steel, and crystal clear glazing, is a sensational display of Sunseeker’s commitment to offering personalised and bespoke yachts. The midnight grey 100 Yacht is a rare project with personality and flair. Without a doubt, this will be the most photographed yacht in the Mediterranean this summer.
