The Best in Cannes for MIPIM 2014!

Cannes is heating up this weekend, and with a Spring heatwave just in time for MIPIM 2014 it’s set to be one of the best weeks yet. The biggest and best in property are on their way to Cannes for one of the biggest events in their calendar. An opportunity to showcase developments and achievements worldwide, and what better way to showcase success than by hosting colleagues and partners on one of the world’s finest super yachts in the hub of yachting that is the Old Port of Cannes.

The Boatbookings team are down at the port welcoming clients and ensuring events run smoothly and successfully, and we’ve seen a couple of favourites perfect for events in Cannes and also the Monaco Grand Prix 2014.


Towering above all others was LATITUDE, a stunning 2008 52 metre Benetti. We love Benettis, the outside space they offer and a wide beam allowing you to host large events on expansive decks. Her interior is modern and elegant, with a fun splash of red to add a wonderful energy that surrounds her interior. She has multiple private meeting spaces, including dining options that comfortably seat twelve, Portuguese Bridge, private owner’s balconies and of course a spacious flydeck with large jacuzzi and breakfast dining.


When wanting to stand out on a static charter, the stern of a yacht is of huge importance for the wow factor. On departure today we saw BARON TRENCK, a stunning 2011 Eurocraft with a beautifully striking exterior arriving in the port. Volume on her flydeck is completely unrivalled allowing wonderfully private parties for business groups. Her interior is classic and offers accommodation for up to 10 in complete comfort, also offering excellent work space for productive working days.

If you’re looking to charter for events such as MIPIM, MIPCOM, MAPIC, the Cannes Film Fesitval, Cannes Lions or the Monaco Grand Prix, contact one of our event specialists on the French Riviera today.

We wish all our clients, and everyone at MIPIM 2014 a very successful week of exhibitions and networking!

Make every charter an event on DEVOCEAN, be it the Cannes Film Festival or just a Family Vacation!

Recently, Tom and Cordy from the Boatbookings team had the pleasure of visiting DEVOCEAN, a majestic 37m Sunseeker!


We were given a most friendly and warm welcome on board by Captain Ivan whose enthusiasm was great to see on a wet Tuesday morning in the South of France (it doesn’t rain that often!). After discussing Ivan’s illustrious career in yachting in the spacious, tasteful and homely main saloon over one of the best Espressos we’d ever had, it was time to take a look round DEVOCEAN’s interior spaces.

Splendid Bar!

The master cabin is situated forward of the main saloon. Classically appointed with oak panelling and including a comfortable private seating area, this master is truly a home away from home for any discerning charter guest. The full beam bathroom with his and her sinks and whirlpool bath tub ensures total comfort. Below decks are four further guest cabins, each beautifully finished with predictable Sunseeker attention to detail and style. The twin cabin is laid out for 3 guests with a pullman bunk bed berth. This cabin can be converted into a double making DEVOCEAN flexible, perfect for families or friends.

Luxurious Master Cabin!

As amazing as the interior is, it is only half of the story! Step outside and be amazed by the amount of deck space at your disposal. Choose from any one of the 3 decks and you won’t be disappointed! Enjoy casual aft-deck dining for lunch or breakfast before heading up to the top sun deck to spend the morning relaxing and sunbathing or wallowing in the jacuzzi. At lunch time, head downstairs to the large dining table and enjoy a fantastic freshly and expertly prepared lunch, or stay on the sun-deck for an informal barbecue before settling down for another indulgent afternoon on the water. For active and younger charter guests, there is a great selection of water toys; jet skis, sea bobs, fishing and diving equipment are sure to keep everyone entertained.

Spacious Top Deck aboard DEVOCEAN!

DEVOCEAN has also recently become available for event charters and would be perfect for hosting large groups of up to 50 people at dock. Based in Juan Les Pins, she is perfect for MIPIM, CANNES LIONS and the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL. Her exceptional crew and huge deck spaces make her perfect for hosting larger groups. DEVOCEAN would certainly make any corporate or private charterer stand out on the glamorous French Riviera.

Luxury Event Yacht Charter for MIPIM 2013

big_powdermonkey-1-12834-mainMIPIM 2013 will take place between 12-15th March and will bring together all of the key players in the global property market. The Palais des Festival Cannes at the heart of the Croisette is the perfect venue for this prestigious annual event. The show provides unrivalled access to world leaders, including the greatest number of development projects and sources of capital worldwide. This year, it is estimated that there will be around 200 exhibitors from 70 countries.

We believe that the best way to enjoy large corporate events such as MIPIM in complete luxury is to charter a luxury motor yacht with a berth at the Vieux Port de Cannes. Traditionally, a key element of the show revolves around the many Super Yachts docked directly adjacent to the Palais des Festivals in the Old Port of Cannes, providing hospitality suites for entertaining and deal closing. Located right next to the Palais des Festival, the old port provides great proximity to all events, whilst giving guests more space and better service than in a hotel. Do you want to hold important business meetings or evening cocktail parties in style? If so, chartering a luxury motor yacht is definitely for you.

POWDERMONKEY is one of our favourite yachts for charter on the French Riviera. This Falcon 100 provides great accommodation for up to 10 guests in 5 luxurious cabins. Each cabin has an en-suite, making her an idea choice for large events such as MIPIM 2013. She has a great saloon for welcoming guests, as well as a Flybridge to enjoy cocktails, whilst watching the sunset over Le Suquet.

ANTISAN is another of our favourite yachts for large events, especially because of her Italian crew that never disappoint. This Alalunga 110ft luxury motor yacht provides comfortable accommodation for 10 guests in 5 cabins. She is the perfect yacht for entertaining, thanks to her open-plan saloon, decking and lounging areas. Her crew have great experience at offering great service for events for up to 70 guests, as well as having one of the best chefs around. She has a great BOSE sound system and a Jacuzzi, making this yacht a great choice for your MIPIM 2013.big_antisan-alalu-640462861
