But those who want see a large collection of large yachts — and in some cases get aboard and take one for a test — the Sept. 8-13 Cannes Yachting Festival is the place to be.

This year more than 550 boats will be on display, more than 100 models will be making their world premiere and roughly 80 percent of the boats will be available for sea trials.
