1/24

Amer 110

This year’s Cannes Yachting Festival line-up is looking particularly strong, with several new arrivals from the world’s biggest yards.

Our round-up starts with the 33.5 metre Amer 110, which was recently launched by Italian yard Permare. Notable for its quadruple 900hp IPS Volvo Penta engine set-up, this all-GRP yacht hit a top speed of 30.5 knots on her sea trials.

Andiamo

At 47.6 metres LOA, Andiamo is likely to be one of the biggest yachts on display at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival. Launched by Italian yard Baglietto in June and currently undergoing sea trials, she was styled inside and out by Francesco Paszkowski. Star features include her transatlantic cruising range when cruising at 12 knots, which is made possible by twin 2,012hp MTU 12V4000 M63 diesel engines drawing on a total fuel capacity of 80,000 litres.

Arcadia 85

Italian yard Arcadia Yachts will be bringing the latest version of its 25.9 metres Arcadia 85 to the Cannes Yachting Festival this year. Designed for owners who want a close relationship with the sea, this all-GRP cruiser features an innovative winter garden that can be completely opened up to the elements via sliding glass windows. Another standout features is her 40 square metre solar panel array, which can deliver 4.5KW of power to the electrical system, thus boosting the eco credentials of the Arcadia 85.

Azimut Grande 35 Metri

The new flagship of the Azimut range, the Grande 35 Metri stands out from the crowd with her innovative foredeck layout. The trapezoidal bow design was developed in collaboration with Stefano Righini and allows for a spa pool, sunloungers and a separate seating area. What’s more, the entire section can rise up hydraulically to allow the crew to access the storage lockers beneath. Five hulls have been sold since the Azimut Grande 35 Metri was announced at the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival and we expect a few more will shift at this year’s show too.

Canados 808 Maximus

A brand new model from Italian yard Canados, the 808 Maximus is due to undertake a grand tour of the Riviera this summer before her official unveiling at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September. Styled by Marco Casali, this 24.6 metre fast cruising yacht will boast a sporty top speed of 30 knots thanks to its lightweight Kevlar/Aramat composite construction. There was a strong focus on the aft deck layout during the development of the 808 Maximus, which can be seen in the fitment of an extra-wide gangway that is wheelchair accessible, flanked by two L-shaped seating areas.

Clorinda

Swooping exterior styling and equally dramatic 34-knot performance make Clorinda one of our stars of Cannes 2017. Launched by Palumbo Group in July, this 36.45 metre cruiser is historically significant as the first ISA yacht to be completed since the Ancona-based yard was acquired in August 2016. She also features an unconventional layout, with the indoor dining area situated aft of the main-deck lounge.

Custom Line Navetta 33

Custom Line has revamped its popular Navetta 33 yacht and hull number one is due to get its public debut at Cannes 2017. Styled inside by Ferretti Group Engineering and with exterior design by Zuccon International Project, this 33 metre tri-deck yacht boasts many premium features, such as a spa pool on the upper deck, a fold-out balcony in the saloon and a full-beam owner’s cabin on the main deck. The previous version of the Navetta 33 was a massive hit — 20 hulls were launched in total — and the new generation seems set for similar success, with the first five hulls already sold.

8/24

E Vai

This lightweight 25.25 metre carbon fibre yacht from Italian yard Mylius is sure to turn the heads of sailing aficionados visiting this year’s Cannes show. Hull number three in the yard’s flagship Mylius 76 range, E Vai displaces just 30 tonnes and boasts a sleek flush-deck design by Alberto Simeone.

9/24

Elsea

Launched in April at the Italian yard, 49.9 metre Elsea marks an exciting new direction for Cantiere Cerri Navali, as she is the first yacht in the fully custom Fuoriserie line. Her sleek styling is courtesy of Studio Bacigalupo and reflects her sporty performance, with a top speed of 27 knots achieved during her recent sea trials. Key features include two saloon areas — a formal space with a dining table on the main deck and a more cosy area on the upper deck, which is ideal for hosting on-board movie nights for all ten guests.

Ferretti Yachts 920

The Ferretti Group will be giving a debut to five new yachts in Cannes, including two from its signature range. The Ferretti Yachts 920 is the larger of the two and features a raised bow design that allows for a wider main-deck master cabin. The Italian yard adds that the foredeck seating area is also the largest it has fitted to a yacht of this size, with two sofas, sunloungers and removable parasols. Propulsion comes from a pair of MTU diesel engines, with the most powerful option making a top speed of 30 knots possible.
