It is just less than a week until the opening of the Cannes Boat Show next Tuesday morning, and the Sunseeker Exhibition Team are hard at work building the world-famous stand that encompasses the Capitanerie every year.

In the run up to show the Sunseeker Blog Book has exclusive access to photos of the Sunseeker stand as each wall panel is built, each carpet is laid and each Sunseeker arrives in Cannes Vieux Port…

Yesterday morning, we received confirmation that the brand new Sunseeker Manhattan 55, which premieres at Cannes, and the Predator 68 arrived in France with boat transporters Peters & May. Having been loaded on the cargo ship “MV LIFTER” on the 26th of August, the Sunseeker yachts docked safely in Nice on the evening of the 2nd of September. Currently en route to their berths at the Cannes Boat Show, below are a selection of photos of the yachts being loaded in Southampton.

Whilst the yachts make their way to Cannes, construction of the stand is increasing at a fast rate of knots. Now that the building materials are in place, the exhibition area is once again turning into the stand that we all know and love. Scroll below to see the most recent changes…
