Antibes Yacht Show 2012

Antibes Yacht Show first opened its doors in April 2007 in response to a strong demand for a spring show in the region. It is dedicated to the brokerage and charter of larger yachts. Since 2011, a designated refit area has been added in the Bastion St Jaume, widening the appeal of theAntibesboat show.

Antibes Yacht Show is proud of the Port’s History and from the very first year asked Mr. Camille Rayon to be the Show’s Honorary President. Mr. Rayon was a real pioneer in the creation of many ports in the region and without his vision the Port Vauban would not be what it is today. It would have never been able to welcome yachts such as M/Y Dilbar, M/Y Kingdom, M/Y Carinthia VII or the M/Y Maltese Falcon to only name a few. You can read more about Mr. Camille Rayon on the page dedicated to the Port Vauban.

From 2007, Antibes Yacht Show visitors have increased year on year. The first year there were 8 000; in 2011, there were just over 13 000 yachts lovers coming from 65 different countries to discover the 150 yachts exhibited. Antibes Yacht Show combines beautiful spring weather withEurope’s largest yacht marina.
