Ahh…Spring – that uplifting, transitional season between winter and summer. In the midst of record cold weather here in the United States, it’s easy to daydream about "springtime" and her promise of rebirth and renewal.
Like the Swallows that return faithfully to roost at San Juan Capistrano’s Mission, the Glitterati, and the paparazzo who follow them, descend upon the Côte d’Azur to renew a decades-long love affair with fine films and famous actors.
Playing host to the many celebrities and VIP’s who make their way to the South of France for this special event are some of the world’s newest and largest yachts. Here, where privacy from tourists and onlookers is hard to come by, luxurious superyachts offer discreet accommodations and a secure venue for parties and business meetings.
The 2011 Cannes Film Festival takes place May 11 to 22. Billed as a celebration of cinema, film producers and actors from around the world come to Cannes, France to screen their latest projects and look for buyers and investors.
Demand to rent a private yacht for a Cannes Film Festival 2011 yacht charter is brisk, as the main exhibition hall is directly adjacent to a large marina.
Here, on the deck of a superyacht, film studios can host lavish parties where movie stars and producers can mingle. For more discreet meetings, movie executives and investors can meet in the comfort of a yacht’s sky lounge to negotiate film projects.
Among the yacht’s available for the festival is the 54-meter motor yacht MARAYA, with accommodations for 12 guests and deck space for a cocktail party of 150 patrons. Weekly rentals begin at 300,000 EUROS.
