(UPDATED 5/14/19) There was some concern last month that this would be the sleepiest Cannes Film Festival in years, but in true dramatic fashion the festival added not only Elton John with his premiere of “Rocketman” but also Quentin Tarantino with the premiere of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” which all but guarantees a star-studded Cote d’Azur and a hopping superyacht party schedule.

The Cannes Film Festival becomes one of the season’s destinations for many of the world’s very wealthy, all showcasing their magnificent superyachts in various locations along the French Riviera, from Antibes to Monaco or directly off the Jetee Albert Edouard in the Old Port of Cannes. When you attend the Cannes Film Festival, you will see many of these mega yachts anchored just off the shore for the envious to see.

Since many of these yachts cruise during the day with their guests and change locations often, I am once again including Monte Carlo, Cap d’Antibes, Marseilles, La Ciotat, and St. Tropez in my roundup this year which also leads up to the Monaco Grand Prix at the end of May. I am currently in the South of France visiting a few of these yachts and will report on the who’s who in the French Riviera during the Cannes Film Festival. This list will be updated daily and will include new arrivals throughout May.
