The strong presence from Sunseeker France and Sunseeker London, combined with Sunseeker International’s support and an impressive stand and on-water display, led to a very positive 2012 Cannes Boat Show. The show continues to grow year-on-year and is proving to be one of Europe’s most prestigious shows. It was evident this year that manufacturers are starting to use the Cannes show as their platform to launch new products, both small and large, at both ends of the spectrum. Although still small when compared to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, this year there were more than 400 exhibitors participating from 24 countries and the show attracted over 50,000 boat enthusiasts.
The desirable location and the accessibility of the show make Cannes a client-friendly venue and this was reflected in the increase in the number of International visitors and families in attendance. The Sunseeker stand developed a significant presence with its prime location, benefiting from direct client access. Being based in the capitanerie building, the stand lent itself to a purpose-built VIP hospitality lounge. The new Portofino 40 was unveiled for the first time at the show and was received extremely well by guests, clients and press followed by encouraging feedback. The new model was joined by 10 additional Sunseeker yachts from the range including the 28 Meter Yacht which made its Mediterranean debut along with the Predator 115. Sales success was evident with orders taken on the Portofino 40, new San Remo, Manhattan 53, Manhattan 63, 28 Meter Yacht and the Predator 115.
