Summer is winding down. The kids are going back to school. That means boat-show season is about to start. A few weeks ago, we informed you of several small superyacht world premieres at the Cannes Yachting Festival. Here, we’re presenting the five biggest boats bowing there, plus one more “small” debut. Six more megayachts to see at Cannes for sure.
- Baglietto 48M. This newly launched 157-footer (above) is the queen of Cannes this year. She’s a spec yacht, so she’s available for sale. Francesco Paszkowski Design styled her with larger ports than her sistership, Andiamo, delivered last year. Baglietto’s interior-design department rearranged a few areas inside to increase usable space, too. This includes the beach club, which can include a gym or spa (floor space is yours to arrange).Check out the infinity hot tub on the sundeck as well.
- Conrad Shipyard’s Viatoris. Poland-based Conrad Shipyard may not be familiar to Americans, but builds yachts to 197 feet (60 meters). Viatoris is a 131-footer (40-meter) for a repeat customer, with styling by Reymond Langton Design and naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design. Viatoris is quite opulent inside, with Macassar ebony and rosewood. In addition, her four guest suites can convert to two large VIPs.
- Custom Line Navetta 42. The biggest Navetta to date, at 138 feet, is among the biggest megayachts to see at Cannes, too. Spanning four decks, she varies from the standard layout for this semi-custom model. The owner requested four, rather than five, staterooms below decks. In addition, overall, he made a number of personalized requests. In fact, he calls her “a maxi yacht built with the care of a tailor-made suit.”
- CCN Fuoriserie 40. The “40” denotes 40 meters, or 131 feet. Besides being among the biggest megayachts to see at Cannes, that makes her among the biggest CCN deliveries to date. In Italian, fuoriserie loosely translates to “custom built,” a hint as to how she was constructed. Made for cruising in light ice, she also hosts diving expeditions for her owner and guests.
- Maiora 36 Harmony. While Maiora launched this first Maiora 36 last year, she’s never attended a yacht show. Capabable of a reported 30 knots, she looks sleek. Yet, she has good volume for her 118-foot length, given a sizable beam of nearly 27 feet (8.2 meters). Highlights of the design include a big sunning space on the foredeck, plus a 23-foot-wide (7-meter-wide) flying bridge.
- Pearl 95. Pearl Yachts’ second superyacht isn’t among the biggest megayachts to see at Cannes, but worthy of attention nonetheless. A sporty yacht, she should hit a maximum speed of 28 knots. While she has four guest staterooms below decks, two can convert into one suite. A particularly nice feature: sliding-glass doors to each side of the saloon.
