Yachts Galore at Cannes Film Festival 2016

When the Cannes Film Festival is underway, the yachts come out to play.

The Cannes Film Festival is not just for watching films, but also for watching luxury yachts fill the Port de Cannes . The festival is a time when celebrities and luxury yacht owners alike come to the French Riviera, find port in Cannes and climb to land to watch hundreds of filmmakers' hard work unfold on the big screen. But who really needs an excuse to cruise the French Riviera?

The festival, which started on May 11, runs through May 22 and a variety of notable yachts have already found port on the coast of Cannes, like Steven Spielberg's The Seven Seas.

We've collected our top yachtspotting images and videos, for those who couldn't make it to the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
