Experiencing the Cannes Film Festival

7 May 2018

The Red Carpet at the Cannes Film Festival










The Cannes Film Festival has, for over 70 years, been attracting the best the film industry has to offer.  Each May, at the beginning of the Mediterranean’s cruising season, Cannes transforms into a festival city welcoming the actors, directors, cinematographers and producers at the top of their game and in their finest couture.  It is a wonderful time to enjoy an already magical city as it begins to shake off winter and the sunbeds appear on the shoreline for summer.

The appeal of chartering a yacht on France’s Cote d’Azur is obvious yet to do it during the Cannes Film Festival is something else.  It brings together the best in human artistic endeavour, the natural beautiful of the French Riviera and the glamour of Hollywood.  Yet which yacht to choose?  Let Ocean Alliance navigate the options for you.

M/Y SHERAKHAN is one of the largest yachts Ocean Alliance represents at 69.65 metres.  Having undertaken a large refit in 2017, SHERAKHAN has emerged refreshed yet still maintaining the charm of her 1965 build year.  There is accommodation onboard for 26 guests in 13 staterooms whose every need is met by 19 professional crew members.  There are more watersports, tenders and equipment than can possibly be used in a week-long charter plus an onboard spa.  Chartering this superyacht is experiencing the best of yachting and having the Palme D’Or as the backdrop only adds to the glamour.

Or perhaps you are after something more modern?  M/Y MUCHO MAS is 44 metres of modern elegance and sophistication.  Her metallic silver hull sets the tone for an understated yet opulent interior designed by Jonathan Quinn Barnett.  She has five staterooms for 10 guests and the Owner’s suite even includes a therapeutic Vichy shower for pre-gala preparation.  Yet it is in her entertaining areas where MUCHO MAS excels.  There is the obligatory jacuzzi with 54 jets with a swim-up bar; a sun deck which you will never want to leave for its full bar, bbq and sunbeds not to mention a misting system to cool you down; casual outdoor dining as well as formal indoor options which meet at the main deck’s bar; and another jacuzzi on the foredeck!  If this superyacht were a movie, it would be a thriller!
