The Cannes Boat Show (the Festival de la Plaisance de Cannes) starts tomorrow, premiering new superyachts and showcasing some of the industry’s most exciting launches before the Monaco Yacht Show later this month.
The new flagship from Ferretti is the 29.2-metre planing yacht the Ferretti 960, designed in collaboration with Studio Zuccon International Project. The sporty, sleek outline features a forward main-deck owner’s suite and floodable tender garage, plus four further same-sized guest cabins with large windows. The flybridge looks to be popular outdoor relaxation areas, as does the swim platform with lift for diving and launching the toys (including a Seabob) and tenders.
The 44-metre Monokini, the third in Baglietto’s fast line, launched in May and is the first yacht to hit the water since the yard was taken over by new owner the Gavio Group. Design comes from Francesco Paszkowski, with interiors by Alberto Mancini that are inspired by the world of high-end aviation. With an eye-catching, masculine grey hull and streamlined outline, she features two fold-down side terraces in the guest area and interiors in wood, steel and leather. Topping 30 knots, she is speedy too.
Conrad C115 Lunar
The first in a new series is always cause for excitement, and the stunning 35-metre Lunar from Conrad Shipyards marks the beginning of what looks to be an intriguing new series of motor-sailers. Designed by Frank Neubelt of Newcruise with naval architecture by Vripack, the focus is on optimising the interor volumes and exterior spaces. A full-beam owner’s suite spans eight metres, and a foredeck pool converts to a tender stowage space when under way. Lunar is shown by, and for sale through, YPI.
