The stars have arrived, champagne corks are popping and fireworks light the night sky. The Cannes Film Festival 2014 is very much underway. The latest news from the red carpet is that, amongst the star studded line-up of Nicole Kidman, in town promoting the centre-piece of the festival “Grace of Monaco”, Cate Blanchett and the notorious lothario, Dan Bilzerian, Blake Lively is stealing the show, embodying Bardot, South of France sex appeal in Chanel Coutour.
Widely regarded as the start of the season, with the festival in full flow, Cannes is absolutely buzzing. With the lion’s share of the wild parties taking place in the Old Port, there is no better way to experience there is no better way to experience the Film Festival than on a yacht. There is still availability on some amazing yachts, including CLARA ONE, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Boatbookings team and get yourself down to Cannes.
The stunning 31 metre, Arno Leopard, ALEON is similarly available for charter immediately. Stunning, sporty lines make her really stand out from the crowd while her top speed of 43 knots leaves a day out in St Tropez or a night out in Monaco just a short cruise away.
The open aft deck is superb. The huge sunpad is the best place to show off your sexy tan either while cruising or while at anchor. Further seating provides the opportunity to dine al fresco or just sit back, relax and let lazy afternoons melt away. With a further sunpad located on the forward deck, there is enough space for all of your guests to find their favourite spot, spread out and relax.
Her interior is refined, elegant and contemporary and, with a permanent berth amongst some of the French Riviera‘s most stunning yachts in Cannes‘ Port Canto, she is a great choice for a charter this summer. With the Boatbookings team based in Cannes, there is nobody better placed to get you the best deal onyour dream charter in the South of France.
Cannes is alive and buzzing with anticipation for the famed Film Festival, beginning on 14th May. The iconic Carlton Hotel has been decorated to almost unrecognisable lengths promoting the latest Hollywood blockbusters such as the new Transformers movie and The Expendables 3. The beach clubs have been transformed into concert venues, party spaces and meeting areas and last but not least the prestigious old port of Cannes is filling up with the world’s finest super yachts ready to house the biggest names in film! We’re in Cannes looking at the most iconic yachts at this year’s Festival de Cannes…
In yachting size really does matter, and taking up the “Quai du Large” this year is MOGAMBO. An award-winning design from Nobiskrug, she has a simple yet truly effective exterior with mysterious grey hull and huge windows flooding the interior with light. The sleek exterior almost disguises the fact that MOGAMBO is of colossal size, weighing in at an impressive 73.55 metres. Comprising of three decks of contemporary opulence, this luxury super yacht offers everything from a beach club to a hair salon and meeting spaces to saunas. Impressed? MOGAMBO’s price tag is €600,000 per week, with a minimum charter period of 10 days.
In a world where tradition is everything, with white and blue being the norm, standing out is key. For Roberto Cavalli, standing out comes in the form of a beautifully painted pearlescent hull. From some angles the 40 metre Baglietto super yacht glows in a stunning teal, but see her in port and she’s a striking purple. Self-named RC isn’t on the charter market so we cannot confirm the interior but from the social media snaps of celebrities such as Made in Chelsea’s Mark-Francis Vandelli we see multiple animals prints and extravagant patterns. What else would you expect from such a famed designer?
Tom Daley Goes Global follows the travelling adventures of the diving sensation as he embarks on a whistle-stop backpacking trip.
Cameras follow Tom and his best friend Sophie as they kiss their families goodbye, pack their bags and head for the wilds of some of the most incredible countries on earth such as Thailand, Japan, Australia, Morocco and New Zealand. The trip is a life-changing experience that will see Tom as he’s never been seen before- roughing it in hostels, sleeping on night trains and making new friends – as he takes in everything typical of a student-backpacking trip in just six weeks.
Tom and Sophie’s yacht charter, provided by Boatbookings, included meeting up with Mollie King from The Saturdays in uber cool Cannes – a glamorous stop off away from the rigours of backpacking.
Events on the French Riviera have kicked off to a flying start, with MIPIM last week being recognised as one of the biggest and best yet we have many more to look forward to and big shoes to fill!

NAMELESS is one of our favourite new boats on the charter market for 2014. Not only does she have beautifully executed interior design; she has also already gained a fabulous reputation throughout the yachting industry for events, having executed an unforgettable party at the Monaco Yacht Show 2013 for brokers to see the huge array of qualities she has on offer. Without a doubt one of the most handsome boats on the charter market today, she’s available for the Monaco GP at the rate of €25,000 per day.
