Spread over the Vieux Port, Espace Riviera and the Port Pierre Canto, the show will offer close to 500 boats on display, built by the leading luxury shipyards. Le Vieux Port will showcase inspiring new models and products over the six day event, with a mix of motor boats and sailing boats ranging from 10 to 62 metres on the water, and parts manufacturers and service companies positioned on land.
