The Cannes Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique; Charter a Yacht for the Best Fireworks this Summer!

One of the best ways to witness the Cannes Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique this summer is from your own private yacht. Escape the crowds and busy beaches, lie back on your own luxury sun loungers without developing a crick in your neck as you look up to the sky, and watch the battle to win the best fireworks display.

See the sky light up with bursts of colours and dazzling lights, and feel the vibration of the bangs echoing around the bay of Cannes. From your own yacht out on the water, it is like your very own private display. Sit back, sip on a glass of champagne and enjoy your luxury yacht charter in Cannes with your friends and family!
