Something remarkable will define this year’s edition of the Cannes Yacht Show as some of the world’s finest Yachts will make their first appearance at the show in September.
The Yachting Festival of Cannes which begins on September 6 through 11 marks the start of the new season, with about a quarter of the yachts making their official global premieres on the French Riviera.
The festival is a gathering of Yacht aficionados from all over the world who will see new offerings from the world of boating. Some of the interesting Yachts to see are:
Chris-Craft’s the Commander series which feature a new 42-foot lobster-style cruiser built in Italy by Austin Parker. The Commanders were classic cruisers of the 1960s that represented the pinnacle of the brand. The new Commander 42 will be powered by twin 435 hp Volvo IPS engines. It features a sizable two-stateroom cabin. The interior is spacious and elegantly finished with zebra, walnut, or whitewashed wood options, a head with a separate shower (including a glass door and mosaic tiles), and a galley-up design.
Another yacht to see is the new Azimut 66, whose flybridge line was redesigned by designer Stefano Righini. It made its first appearance in 2013. The 66 shares key characteristics with its earlier siblings the 50, 80, and 72, including side windows shaped like shark fins, a spacious flybridge with multiple seating areas, and a bow that has been transformed into a mammoth lounge area. The exterior is sleek.
You can’t be at the Cannes Yacht Show and not see the new 54-foot Pershing 5X Factor which is a departure for a brand that has become synonymous with traditional elegance and style. The 5X has several features including a hydraulic swim platform at the transom that lowers about two feet into the water. With a safety net around the perimeter, the 14-foot-wide platform becomes a pool for children and other guests on hot days.
