According to organizers of the Cannes Yachting Festival 2016, over 630 boats, ranging from 2.10 to 52 meters, were on display.
This year 191 new models, both sailing and motor yachts, were presented in Cannes, offering significant clues on market’s trends.
Designers pay great attention to provide generous volume and a close relationship between exterior and interior areas. Backed by sophisticated glass technology systems, large glazings on superstructures and hulls let plenty of natural light in while offering great views on the surrounding environment. A generous use of glazing also has a stylish effect on the exterior.
3-Meter High Windows
The Custom Line Navetta 37, which debuted in Cannes, is a perfect example of these trends. So is the new model of the Benetti Displacement Class range, the Mediterraneo 116, which features continuous majestic 3-meter-high windows in the main saloon.
Both the Ferretti Group and Azimut-Benetti arrived at Cannes with a fleet of new models. Ferretti’s presence went from the Ferretti Yachts 450, the range’s captivating entry level, to the 16.51-meter Pershing 5X, with iconic brand Riva displaying the timeless Rivamare and 76′ Bahamas.
Azimut-Benetti showed off 17 yachts representing the group’s five collections. A noticeable one was the brand new Azimut 66 Flybridge, whose volumes and spaces are exploited to the last centimeter.
