The Cannes Yachting Festival heralds the start of the boat show season. Held every year across the View Port and Port Pierre Canto marinas, it showcases a mixture of new and brokerage yachts to suit every taste and budget.

Here is SuperYacht World's pick of five superyachts making their public debut.

1 Benetti Mediterraneo 116

Cannes marks the debut for this 35.5-metre yacht, which features exteriors by Pierluigi Ausonio/Benetti and interiors by Giorgio Maria Cassetta/Benetti. The yacht is characterised by light interior spaces and clever layouts.


2 Perini Navi Dahlak

A sistership to regatta superstar P2, Dahlak has just been launched and will make her public debut at the show. The 38.2-metre yacht also features naval architecture and sail plan optimisation from Philippe Briand Design.


3 Cantiere delle Marche Narvallo

The latest from the Italian shipyard, Narvallo is the latest in the Nauta Air range. The 33.4-metre yacht is built for long range cruising and exploration, with a range of 5,500 nautical miles at nine knots.


4 Gulf Craft Majesty 155

The largest yacht at the show is making its European debut in Cannes. The 47-metre superyacht is the flagship of the UAE-based yard, and features exteriors by Gulf Craft and Yankee Delta Studios.
