Cannes International Boat & Yacht Show – September 15 – 20, 2010
A few months before the opening of the 33rd Cannes International Boat and Yacht Show, the big names in international boatbuilding have redoubled their drive and ingenuity to adapt their offer to the new world Order.
If the world of pleasure boats and luxury yachts has been heavily hit throughout the 2008/2009 season by the worsening economic conditions, it seems the time has now come for a slight recovery, supported by the unwavering interest of the yachting fraternity. There is no doubt that the new models and world previews will be at the port of Cannes starting 8 September.
In Pursuit of Performance and Innovation: the key words of the sector
Already in 2009, in the midst of the crisis, French and international shipyards showed a capacity for innovation and exceptional resource to cope with the downturn in the market. In 2010, this concern is still relevant more than ever, and has paid dividends at many levels: new hulls, choice designs, and ever more irreproachable quality of service, etc.
And because there cannot be boating activities without a protected environment, the incorporation of environmental considerations is now one of the catalysts of the market: new engine types, hybrid engines, solar panels, LED lighting… As for the craft labelled “Bateau bleu” that comply with marine regulations, there will be many boats presenting equipment that allows better protection of the environment.
