From September 10 to 15, Cannes will host the 42nd Cannes Yachting Festival. More than 600 boats will be on display and 130 of them are worldwide premiere. Here are some of them toghether, strictly in alphabetical order, with some other interesting new entries.

  • AB Yachts – AB100 Lea
    Lea, the AB Yachts’ new 30 metre will be on display in Cannes for her world premiere.

With a length of 30 meters, but with the possibility to register it within 24 meters, in this model AB Yachts has managed to combine perfectly two main market requirements: maximization of the internal volume available together with the ease of management of a pleasure yacht, making AB 100 versatile and suitable for many needs. AB 100 is built with the latest generation lightweight materials, advanced composites and special bonding systems, all technologies designed and tested by AB Yachts that have now become a landmark in the world of yachting.

The interior is fully customizable, from the division into compartments to the interior furniture.

  • Absolute Yachts: Absolute Navetta 68 – Absolute 47 Fly
    Absolute Yachts will display two world premières in Cannes: the Navetta 68 and the 47 fly and a French première: the 62 Fly.

Absolute Navetta 68 – Named “The Absolute Vision”, for her marked innovative features this boat offers internal and external spaces conceived for the maximum conviviality, which are composed of precious and fine materials, according to the classic, everlasting Made in Italy style.

The layout features four cabins, including the VIP one and two cabins with single beds. In addition, two separate cabins are envisaged for the crew. The main deck is conceived to be a triumph of brightness, elegance and flexibility of use as
the idea is to leaving space to the owner’s imagination, going along with his tastes and his needs.
Absolute 47 Fly – “The Absolute Gateway”, the 47 Fly has refined lines offering very spacious and well-organized flybridge area, fully equipped, and a very large sunbathing area towards the bow to make the most of the moments spent outdoors.

The cockpit has double access from the platform to ease mooring operations, as well as a large storage and a ceiling with linear LED lighting along the entire length of the boat: a unique touch of style. The main deck enjoys uninterrupted visibility thanks to the large windows. Walking over to the lower deck, you can find three wide cabins for a total of 6 beds. The engine is entrusted to Volvo Penta’s IPS650. 

  • Arcadia Yachts – Sherpa XL
    Arcadia Yachts is preparing to celebrate its tenth anniversary with the world debut of the new Sherpa XL at the Cannes Yachting Festival. Successor of Sherpa, XLis another step in the growth process of the shipyard philosophy, giving life to a new line of yachts next to the historical A line.

The concept of the Sherpa XL, developed with the Milan-based Hot Lab design studio develops around the arrangement of the decks. The bow decks are staggered, so there is one central staircase with reduced height differences. This unusual layout has permitted to achieve large spaces in a limited height, arranging volumes in unusual ways. 

The direct relationship with the sea is enhanced in the cockpit, which is connected to the stern platform by a short set of scenic steps. These steps create an interlocking pattern between the narrow topside and the low volume that supports the sundeck. This large space, nearly 65 square metres in size, is unencumbered and can be enjoyed at any time of the day.  

  • Azimut Yachts: Azimut Grande S8 – S10 – Azimut 78 – Atlantis 45
    Hat trick for Azimut Yacht sat the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival, where there the will be on display two world and one international première: Azimut Grande S10, Azimut 78 and Atlantis 45.

Azimut S8 – A surprise debut at Cannes this new model that exudes charm and develops the style codes expressed by Alberto Mancini in the Collection: modernity, power, design and sportiness, interpreted with the utmost elegance.

24.63 meters long, she stands out for her highly innovative technology, combining the extensive use of Carbon Tech with a triple installation Volvo Penta IPS propulsion system to deliver undisputed benefits in terms of performance, quiet running, manoeuvrability, consumption and comfort.

The one of its kind layout features four cabins on the lower deck and a closed galley on an intermediate deck. The Main Deck concept is an alternation of lounge and dining areas, characterised by seamless continuity extending across the interior and exterior design. In the stern, the Pivoting Platform Expander system makes it easy to extend the swim platform.

The interiors by Francesco Guida are available in two decor versions: Platinum and Black Pearl. Both cosy and sophisticated, they stand out for the colours and materials used for the furnishings.

Azimut Grande S10 –Rather than being a mere evolution of the S series, the Grande S10 is really a standalone model. The arrival of Alberto Mancini to do the exterior design brought a welcome burst of energy with the result that it is essentially new.

Admired for his purist approach, Mancini likes to take his inspiration from the aeronautical and car design worlds, being particularly familiar through his work with the latter. He explained the philosophy behind this boat as follows: “I took my inspiration f from three sources: a beachhouse in Malibu with large terraces leading down to the shore; a megasailer that inspired the split-level cockpit, and the car world because car design is always hugely inspiring”.

The yacht’s Francesco Guida interiors remain top secret but the eclectic Neapolitan engineer did let one hint slip: “They are designed as the evolution of a stylistic direction that started with the S7 and S6, and so they very meticulously mix metal, lacquer and leather finishes with classic wood given original treatments. There is generous master stateroom with a central bed, corner bar, dressing area and bathroom” he finishes.

Azimut 78 – With exterior lines designed by Alberto Mancini and interiors by Achille Salvagni, Azimut 78 is the largest yacht ever built at the Avigliana Shipyard. 

Mancini’s exterior design creates a continuous line that runs from bow to stern, giving the impression of reaching skyward and playing on chiaroscuro contrasts, light and shadow, and concave and convex surfaces. This approach to design (the designer has coined the term “infinity line”) and the sense of upward movement are also clear on the flybridge, where the handrail and roll-bar are one and the same object and become an integral part of the design.

The interiors are bathed in the signature smooth atmosphere that is a feature of the work of Achille Salvagni, who prefers sleek, flowing lines to hard angularity. In the living area, the traditional distinction between sofa and dining areas is abandoned in favour of a single sophisticated space furnished with great care and personality. Salvagni’s signature style, which is often inspired by art, gives the settings an elegant and refined appeal, with furnishings that seem suspended in midair, full-height glazed surfaces and a clever combination of soft colours, ranging from purple to baby blue, in an approach to style that can never be taken for granted.

Atlantis 45 – Also worthy of special mention is Atlantis 45, which makes its international debut at Cannes, although the Italian public saw it in a preview last May, with interior and exterior design developed  in partnership with Neo Design. Atlantis 45 has exceptional storage capacity and interior livability, with full-beam owner and guest staterooms, and a galley and dinette that face each other for better functionality.

Outside, the generous forward and aft sunpads and the big windshield with no central upright ensure that navigation is an enjoyable experience, without affecting the aggressively sporty lines that are a feature of this class. The new Azimut Atlantis 45 is fitted with two Volvo IPS 600 units (435 hp), driving the yacht to a top speed of over 33 knots while maintaining excellent manoeuvrability.

  • Beneteau: First 53 – G.turismo 32 – Montecarlo 52 – Swift Trawler 41
    Four world première for the French yard: First 53, Granturismo 32, Montecarlo 52, Swift Trawler 41.

First 53: Benefitting from the “First” legacy of 40 years at sea, the eagerly awaited First Yacht 53 from Beneteau will make her debut in Cannes.

The First Yacht 53 is a high-end sailing yacht marrying luxury and performance, making her comfortable and easy to move around. Two stars aligned for her creation: Roberto Biscontini of America’s Cup fame for the hull design and Lorenzo Argento for the interior and exterior design. The First Yacht 53 boasts strong features designed for sailing purists, with high expectations of excitement at the helm and life at sea.

Granturismo 32 – Designed to provide a perfect transition from a day boat to an express cruiser, the Gran Turismo 32 makes use of the Flyer 10 deck plan, while retaining the panache of the Gran Turismo line.

It also lives up to the challenge the BENETEAU designers set themselves of marrying the spirit of a large open boat with that of a spacious comfortable hard top. 

Montecarlo 52 – The French-built “elegant contemporary cruiser” is over 16 metres long with a 4.6 metre beam and “boasts enhanced spaces, light and comfort” in its world-class design — courtesy of Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard (exterior line) and Andréani Design (interior accomodation), with a V-hull designed in partnership with MICAD.

The new hull has helped create a larger saloon, which features a minimalist décor of light-coloured woodwork and linings. The interior is very bright due to huge saloon windows, while the open aft galley connects well with the cockpit once the doors are open.

Swift Trawler 41 – The new Swift Trawler 41 is 13.30 metres long and has a beam of 4.20 metres, and is the inal addition to the successful range of ive long-distance cruisers by the the french boatyard.

Designed to replace the previous Swift Trawler 44, the new Swift Trawler 41 has been placed appropriately in the 40 foot passagemaker category, but the concept has been given a fresh look. A mid-range boat with a strikingly stylish and aggressive proile, she relects the Swift Trawler line renewal perfectly, which began last year with the arrival of the Swift Trawler 47. 

  • Benetti Yachts: Delfino 95 – Fast 125 – Mediterraneo 116
    Spotlight on three yachts in the Class category for Benetti.

“Aslan” is the seventh Delfino 95 unit, The exterior design is by Giorgio M. Cassetta and the interiors are by the Benetti Interior Style Department, which has created a design that is heavily inspired by the world of sailing yachts, as desired by the owner. The use of teak is particularly striking and a clear reference to sailing boats.

The boat’s leitmotiv is its understatement, which taken together with the sophisticated refinement of straightforward design choices delivers a remarkable sense of elegance

Accompanying “Aslan” to the show will be “Bangadang”, the eighth unit built of the Fast 125 model yacht renowned for its clean lines. The exterior design is by Stefano Righini and the interiors are the work of UK-based RWD, which has designed three different style solutions especially for Benetti: Land, Sea and Air. 

The owner of “Bangadang” opted for ‘Air’, which combines clean lines with a distinctly modern personality. 38.1m in length, the yacht is equipped with high performance technology for speed and manoeuvrability. The owner of “Bangadang” has opted for minimalist styling and clean lines, choosing ‘Made in Italy’ furnishings from brands like Cassina, Minotti, B&B, Meridiani and Paola Lenti. The flooring throughout the boat is oak parquet, with alternating colour shades and crafting techniques. 

“Botti” will be the third yacht exposed in Cannes. The 35.5-meter “Botti” has a fiberglass displacement hull and a carbon fibre superstructure. She is the third Mediterraneo 116 unit in the Class category and extends across four decks.

The exterior design concept is by Giorgio M. Cassetta, while the interiors are a jointly work of Benetti’s Interior Style Department, and Radyca design studios. The sleek, sweeping design of the exteriors is reflected in the layout of the interiors and their decoration, in which light and big spaces work together to create warm, light-filled settings. Fine fabrics, wood accents featuring warm colours and soft lighting set the tone in the communal settings and the spaces reserved for the owner and their guests.
