The berths at Cannes work on a first come, first serve basis; you need to plan ahead in order to get the best spot. In order to apply for the berth, you are required to chow the charter contract, company documentation, yacht license and documentation, and fill out an extensive application

We would be more than happy to find you the perfect charter yacht and submit the berth application!
