After a long wait, the yacht show season is finally back in action. Kicking off in the South of France with the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021 and drawing to a close with the Monaco Yacht Show 2021, the month of September will see a flurry of activity in the yachting market. Expect new superyacht projects announced, new yacht sales and an opportunity for the entire industry to come together once again.
With so much superyacht show action in September, it can be challenging to keep track of the latest news and developments – but social media platforms provide the answer. Here we look at the top 10 yachting Instagram pages to follow this show season to never miss a beat.
Yacht show season: Top 10 yachting Instagram pages
1 – Cannes Yachting Festival
Already in full swing, the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021 opened its doors on 7th September and will draw to a close on Sunday 12th September. Regularly attracting thousands of yacht owners, buyers and industry professionals, the annual event is hosted in the spectacular bay of Cannes. After more than a year of cancelled boat shows, the 2021 edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival is even more significant than usual, marking the first luxury yacht show for many since the beginning of the pandemic.

The Monaco Yacht Show is the ultimate superyacht event. Bringing together hundreds of the world’s latest and greatest superyachts in the iconic Port Hercules in Monaco, the annual event is renowned for its stellar superyacht lineup.

More than 60 luxury yachts will be on display in Monaco this year, as well as 300 exhibitors ranging from shipyards to yacht designers and luxury yacht brokers and more.
MYS 2021 kicks off in the Principality on 22nd until 25th September. Follow all the latest updates on Monaco Yacht Show 2021 on the show’s official Instagram page @monacoyachtshow_official.
