Deadline Soon for Monaco Grand Prix Yacht Charter Berth Applications

While plenty of vessels remain available for the Grand Prix as well as Cannes Film Festival yacht charter, the window to secure prime dockage is rapidly closing.

Each spring, the dock masters in both Cannes and Monaco set deadlines for acquiring a slip due to heavy demand for the best berths.  In Cannes, that means along the quay in the Port de Cannes, directly adjacent to the entrance to the film festival.  In Monaco, the ideal berths are stern-to along the quay that borders the street track at Port Hercule de Monaco.

“First-time special event charterers often don’t realize that Port Hercule blocks the coming and going of Superyachts during the multiple days of the Monaco Grand Prix,” says Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters. “We let our clients know it is more important to secure dockage early than it is to select a yacht.  Renting a yacht and being forced to anchor in the bay and use the tenders to get ashore to watch the race or attend the film festival is time-consuming and hampers the true superyacht experience of being right next to the action.”   

Berth application deadlines for 2016 include:

  • Monaco Grand Prix: deadline for filing a berth application – 29 February, 2016.
  • Cannes Film Festival:deadline for berth applications – 4 March, 2016.

If you’re considering a special event Côte d’Azur yacht charter this spring, 1-800 Yacht Charters offers complimentary paperwork processing of all berth filings and applications. It’s a complicated process and best left to yachting experts.  For more information, contact your 1-800 Yacht Charter team at
