September represents an incredibly important month for Princess Yachts and BJ Marine with Cannes and Southampton boat shows taking place, and we have incredible displays lined up for both!

We also have immediate availability on a few select models.

Cannes Boat Show

In Cannes, from the 12th-17th September, we will have 8 stunning boats on display. There will be show debuts for the Y95 and the S72 as well as the much anticipated World Premiere of the Y80. A particular favourite of ours, the F45 will also command a lot of attention and with Irish clients already booked in for time aboard. 

James Kirwan, Group Manager of BJ Marine/ Princess Yachts Ireland, will be in attendance throughout.

It is a busy show and viewing by appointment so contact James on [email protected] or 087 7712223 in advance of the show.
