We now look at the largest yachts on display at the upcoming show.

Accommodating up to 12 guests in 8 cabins, Suri was extended amidst ship in 2012 by 11 meters, which extended her sundeck, arguably the nicest area on the yacht, and extended the helipad. Amongst the yacht's special features are a large cinema room on the lower deck with a glass-bottom floor to observe the fish and an observational lounge on top of the bridge.

The new Riva’s flagship entered the water on Lake Iseo. Riva 68’ Diable forged in the storied Sarnico shipyard and scheduled to make its debut in September at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021. The brainchild of Mauro Micheli, founder with Sergio Beretta of Officina Italiana Design, working in partnership with the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari and the Group Engineering Department, this yacht revolutionises the open concept, incorporating exciting technological and functional design innovations that elevate liveability and comfort on board to their maximum level. The innovative built-in hard top is one of the stand-out new features of this yacht. This solution protects and shelters the central areas of the yacht, including the dining area and the helm station on the main deck. The result is total coverage and maximum comfort, without sacrificing the enjoyment and sportiness of an open yacht with a top speed of 40 knots.Another interesting functional design feature is the sunroof that can be opened in two directions (forwards and reverse) for maximum liveability and comfort on the move. The layout of the lower deck features three cabins for six guests, arranged around an open space containing a galley and a dinette for versatility and convenience. The master cabin is amidships, with the twin cabin with single beds to port and the VIP forward.“Riva 68’ Diable is the irresistible temptation to which every Riva owner and fan can’t wait to succumb.

The 56.7m superyacht with five decks and a tonnage of 1050 GT, has the exterior from Studio Zuccon International Project. The studio is known for creating vessels with functional and lifestyle features normally found on boats of larger sizes. A straight bow gives the yacht a great character, her contemporary lines of extremely clean form, she has a perfect balance between volumes and proportions. The interior will be made by Piero Lissoni. Her layout is untraditional – the wheelhouse has been relocated from the upper deck forward to its own dedicated deck. The owner's cabin is located on the upper deck, a 54 sq. m space overlooking the very large owner deck, a private deck from which to enjoy an exclusive view of the sea’s infinity. The new layout has also made it possible to create a spacious full-beam VIP cabin forward of the main deck that can be used as a second owner's cabin. The yacht can accommodate 12 guests in six cabins. One of the great features is an extraordinary 110 sq. m beach area, created by opening hatches on three sides which become small beaches on the water's edge, illuminated by the transparent-bottomed swimming pool on the main deck. The decision to place the garage at the bow made it possible to create a large space equipped to accommodate tenders of up to 7.5 meters and numerous toys. The yacht will be delivered in June of 2023. Sanlorenzo was founded in 1985 in Viareggio by yacht builder Gionvanni Jannetti.
