Commencing with the Sunseeker Open Golf Tournament at Cannes Mougins Golf & Country Club, where 60 guests enjoyed a morning’s round at the stunning coast side course, the Sunseeker Rendez-vous culminated in a beautiful evening hosted at the new Capitainerie in Port Canto, with over 300 Sunseeker guests attending.

Set against an impressive backdrop of Port Canto, where dozens of Sunseekers were moored in honour of the event, guests enjoyed delicious cocktails from an award-winning mixologist provided by Shore Solutions. Upstairs in the Sky Lounge, along with a live cooking showcase , the party took off with the live band ‘New Loopy Groove Gang’ and DJ MAYINCA entertaining clients as fireworks from the Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique Cannes illuminated the sky.

Cocktails and entertainment enjoyed, a presentation from the event partners concluded the night, and prizes for the winning Sunseeker Open golfers were awarded by luxury menswear brand Francesco Smalto.

Boat owners were invited to cruise to Port Canto for the Sunseeker Rendez-vous and as a result, a total of 24 Sunseeker yachts were berthed in Cannes for the event. Ranging from a Portofino 40 right up to a 115 Sport Yacht, the Sunseeker line-up was a real spectacle and offered guests the unique opportunity to step on board and admire a wide selection of models both current and classic.

The day also saw a number of very special super cars on display, provided by Al Ghassan Motors. Golfers teed off alongside an Aston Martin Vantage V8 SP10 and a DB9 Volante, whilst at Port Canto a Lamborghini Huracan LP-610-4 and a Ferrari 458 Italia Spider completed the luxury showcase.
