Cannes Yachting Festival 2016 drew to a close over the weekend, following six days of the world’s biggest yards showing off their latest models. We noticed five key trends on display at Cannes, the first of which is a change in the way yards are using their foredecks.
Superyacht foredecks have always been popular for private relaxation in the Mediterranean, with stern-to berthing meaning that this is the best place to escape prying eyes.
With this in mind, many manufacturers have started moving the superyacht spa pool from the aft deck to the foredeck. The first Mangusta Oceano 42 (pictured above), Sunseeker 116 Yacht Fleur and Takara by Sanlorenzo were just three of the yachts shown embracing this trend at the 2016 Cannes show.
