Hollywood Icon Takes Own Luxury Yacht to Cannes Film Festival

Why rent a private yacht to attend the world’s preeminent film festival when you can stay onboard your own superyacht? 

That’s exactly what Steven Spielberg did – opting to stay aboard his 282′ luxury yacht charter vessel, motor yacht SEVEN SEAS, during the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival, which took place in Cannes, France.

The legendary film producer and director spent most nights onboard the Oceanco motor yacht SEVEN SEAS, along with wife, Kate Capshaw.

Spielberg served as the President of the film jury for the main competition.

When asked about his role as head of the jury, Spielberg replied, “It is an honor and a privilege to preside over the jury of a festival that proves, again and again, that cinema is the language of the world.”

The infinity swimming pool on her aft deck can conveniently be transformed into a full helipad, or used as a screen for viewing movies while on deck or in the pool, itself.  

Some of our readers may remember first reading about yacht SEVEN SEAS in June, 2011, while Leo DiCaprio and then-steady Blake Lively were onboard.  Later that same summer, the Mediterranean yacht charter vessel was again in the news when the Steven Spielberg yacht ran afoul of the Italian Coast Guard while guest Gwyneth Paltrow was visiting.

After the film festival concluded, the yacht and her owner planned to spend several weeks privately cruising the Mediterranean before heading back to the United States.
