For the first time, Posidonia is participating in the Cannes Yachting Festival!
We are thrilled to have a Posidonia booth at the Cannes Yachting Festival for the first time.
The Cannes Yachting Festival has been held annually since 1977 in the beautiful bay of Cannes. This edition opens on September 12 and closes on September 17.
The event hours are from 10 am to 7 pm every day, except for Friday, September 15, when the exhibition will have a special evening opening until 10 pm.
The Cannes Yachting Festival is the premier event in the European boating industry, where shipyards and companies from the global nautical sector gather to present their world premieres.
The Posidonia booth is PAN358, located at the Vieux Port, one of the oldest ports on the French Riviera.
Posidonia is a leading company in the field of mooring and towing for Super Yachts. For years, we have exhibited at the Monaco Yacht Show, but this year we were drawn to the liveliness of the Cannes fair and wanted to try this new experience. Like all first times, we are filled with curiosity and interest.
Posidonia has been supplying the world's largest yachts for many years.
These mega yachts have been growing longer over the past decade, and Posidonia equips them with high-holding power or extremely high-holding power anchors. The finishes can also include mirror-polished stainless steel. The anchors can be provided with or without a plate to allow for flush mounting, improving maneuverability and enhancing the vessel's aesthetics. Our anchors are articulated shank anchors, and they are welded, tested, and internally polished in Italy by specialized personnel.
We provide super yachts with highly customized anchors and deck equipment, featuring inserts made from precious materials or unique designs (rigorously designed and tested, with IACS certifications available upon request).
At our booth at the Cannes Yacht Festival, we will showcase a 400 kg high-holding power (HHP) HV anchor, a mirror-polished stainless steel bollard, and a 25 kg Bruce-type anchor. We will also display connecting elements such as the Neptunia Swivel Shackle, accessories like the mirror-polished stainless steel Kenter shackle, special chains, and ropes, including the very special HMPE rope. HMPE rope is made from ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, with each individual strand coated for durability to reduce abrasion and extend its lifespan. The strength of HMPE rope is comparable to steel cable.
A unique aspect of the Cannes fair is its industry focus while also opening up to maritime enthusiasts during the weekend, creating a relaxed atmosphere towards the end of summer.
