Enjoy the South of France’s hottest events from your own private yacht in Summer 2019

The summer season in the South of France boasts a busy social calendar packed with a wide variety of events, the best known of which include the MIPIM, Monaco Grand Prix, Cannes Film Festival (Festival de Cannes) and Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. And what better way to enjoy these events than from your very own private yacht, whether for a day charter, hosting a private function or on a full length charter in and around the French Riviera?

No matter what your requirements for an event-based charter, however short or long, there is a wealth of choice in the IYC fleet with many yachts set up for both smaller charter groups or large static events alike. Offering privacy, unbeatable service and a luxurious setting like no other, a yacht is the perfect choice as a base when planning a visit to one or more of these events. On choosing a yacht the experienced crew will then craft a custom experience, tailored perfectly to individual guests to ensure an unforgettable time on board. Huge outdoor deck areas provide stunning gathering spaces to enjoy the atmosphere of an event, with the glittering lights of the French Riviera ensuring an exquisite backdrop for a charter. Come ashore to enjoy land-based events by either strolling straight on to the dock or arriving in comfort by private tender.

You may attend the  MIPIM (Marché International des Professionnels d’Immobilier – held 12-15 March 2019).

For the glitz and glamour of the Cannes International Film Festival (held 14-25 May 2019) a yacht provides the perfect glamourous setting to enjoy the sights and sounds of this star studded event. The festival is renowned for its parties and a yacht is the ideal location for an event, with berths in the heart of the red carpet action. Also held in beautiful Cannes, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, (held 17-21 June 2019) sees the world’s brightest creatives descend upon Cannes and a superyacht is a popular base for both corporate hosting and accommodation.

Viewing the world famous Monaco Grand Prix (held 23-26 May 2019) from the deck of a superyacht has rightly earned a reputation as a must-do experience for both racing fans and novices alike. Every year huge numbers of yachts flock to Monte Carlo to take advantage of the track side berths in Port Hercules, mere metres from all the buzzing race action. Imagine the thrill of watching the Formula 1 cars fly around the track from your own private charter yacht, cold glass of champagne, beer or custom cocktail in hand.

With a varied fleet on offer in the region throughout the summer yacht choices for these key events range from 24 metres all the way up to 60m Mia Elise II ,with weekly rates available. For static hosting 49m La Dea II can host up to 100 guest and 45m Secret Life 150 guests, while 44m Bliss can host an impressive number of 150 guests, with several more of the IYC fleet able to host smaller groups between 20 and 60 people.
