The French Riviera is well known for attracting some of the world’s most glamorous people and most of the world’s most outrageous superyachts during the Cannes Film Festival. But if you really want actually “see” a large collection of large yachts (in some cases actually get aboard and take one you’re interested in buying in out for a test-drive), the Cannes Yachting Festival is where you want to be in September. It’s one of the world’s leading in-water boat shows and this year over 550 boats will be on display, over 100 models will be making their world premiere, and roughly 80% of the boats will be available for sea trials.
And if you do make to the Cannes next month, be sure to check out these 7 must-see yachts. They’ll be well worth the trip.
The Benetti Vivace 125 shares the distinctive construction, technology, style, and spatial layout with Benetti’s Flagship, the Veloce 140. It also features an innovative Rolls-Royce propulsion system, a wave piercing hull, and is built of composite materials including carbon fiber.
The hull is over 27-feet wide and is divided into three decks that sport bold styling and plenty of horizontal windows to accentuate the Vivace’s sleek lines. The hot tub and comfortable lounge area in the bow is sure to be a hit along with the huge aft deck area that provides a lucky owner and guests with a livingroom on the water.
And this is just the beginning.
