Oceanic 143 Trideck
The latest flagship of Canados’s Oceanic range was launched in July. The Oceanic line brings to the market the unique concept of an Explorer styled yacht in terms of design and range with much more than the 13 knots usual top speed offered by most explorers on the market. She is the result of an in-house design and engineering with interiors by Michela Reverberi Design from Rome. The Oceanic particular hull architecture, named by Canados Technical Office as “Displanning” was developed by the shipyard. The vessel features a short superstructure and a huge open aft deck, which is dedicated to fine dining and elegant lounging about, rather than the suite of tenders and water toys generally found aboard its intrepid cousins.
Custom Line 140
Custom Line 140’ is the largest yacht ever built by Custom Line. It features a profoundly sporty aesthetic, as well as the highest standards of comfort for both owner and guests, excellent performance and superior technology, combining design, comfort and spaces never seen before. The elegant and powerful silhouette features generously sized hull windows, while the floor-to-ceiling glazing on deck offers direct contact with the water, emphasized by the open stern rails. The interiors are designed and built by Custom Line Atelier team of architects.
The new Maori Yacht flagship was designed in full Maori style, maintaining the simplicity of Marco Ciampa’s work while still maximizing comfort through commodious interiors. Its body is fully realized with a fiberglass infusion which allows it to glide across the water. The yacht features large windows that outline the spaces spread across the three floors of interiors, all of which consist of a lounging area. Maori 125 has an estimated top speed of 18 knots and a range of 4,200 nautical miles.
B.Yond 37 Goga
Goga, the first of eight B.Yond models currently on order or under construction, was launched in July at a gala thrown by Benetti. The interiors of the superyacht were designed by Benetti architect Mauro Izzo. The model, created by Stefano Righini Design, was motivated by the idea of Paolo Vitelli, the founder and president of Azimut|Benetti Group, who desired a yacht with four decks and a modern yet potent aesthetic. Goga has a sophisticated internal layout that more closely resembles a 50-meter yacht than a 37-meter ship, making the most of the 395 GT of room.
Azimut Grande 36M
The all-new 35.2m Azimut Grande 36M features the exterior by Alberto Mancini and an interior made by Achille Salvagni Architetti. Her D2P Displacement to Planing Hull designed by Pierluigi Ausonio of Studio P.L.A.N.A. in conjunction with the Azimut Benetti R&D Center combines the comfort typical of a displacement hull with the performance of a planing hull and she has a significantly improved fuel efficiency. She can accommodate 10 guests across five cabins and features an innovative upper deck with single-level walkaround. In the center of this deck is located a sky lounge with sliding glass doors. The yacht also has a full beach club.
Benetti’s new Oasis 34M fiberglass superyacht brings the Oasis Deck® solution in a length of just 34 meters. Like her big sister, Oasis 40M, the yacht’s exterior styling is the work of UK firm RWD and the interiors are by Bonetti/Kozerski, the New York based architects. The yacht has an elegant vertical bow and a sleek outline that slopes gently down to the water, broken only by the wheelhouse with its vertical windscreen and the floor-to-ceiling windows. Oasis 34M spreads across three decks. She has a large sun deck with hard top, and multiple outdoor areas.
Van der Valk
The innovative 34m explorer combines a spirit of adventure with superyacht standards of comfort to embrace life on and close to the water. Her Fast Displacement hull, wave-piercing bow and Hull Vane transom wing offer a superb performance and major fuel savings. The superior stabilization of a gyro system at zero speed is combined with a fin system for rough passages. Lady Lene’s exterior was made by Guido de Groot Design, the expedition-style yacht will be fully wheelchair-accessible thanks to an elevator which connects all decks. Her sophisticated interior was designed by Carla Guilheim and Guido de Groot Design and includes an owner suite with an office, which is located on the lower deck as there are two doubles and one single cabin. The VIP suite is situated on the bridge deck.
With the new SP110 model, the first open coupé in the history of Sanlorenzo, the company entered the world of sports yachts. SP110 is created by Studio Zuccon International Project (exterior lines), Piero Lissoni (interiors), under the supervision of Tilli Antonelli. The first yacht in the SP – "Smart Performance" range, the SP110 aims to guarantee high performance with maximum energy efficiency thanks to a fractional propulsion system consisting of three significantly smaller engines with an optimal power-to-weight ratio. The use of various weight-saving solutions, such as the use of lightweight materials, further optimizes consumption and performance. The two-deck yacht is equipped with an energy recovery system that uses monocrystalline solar panels.
102 Corsaro Super
A dazzlingly beautiful flybridge yacht, the new 102’ Corsaro Super spreads across three decks and can accommodate 10 guests across five cabins. The yacht has almost 100 sq. m of liveable open-air spaces, and 140 sq. m of glazing and glass surfaces that reduce the barriers to visual contact with the natural world around the yacht. One of the highlights of the new superyacht is the complete redesign of the stern area on the main deck. This entire space will be configured as an extended 35 sq. m beach club dedicated to conviviality and comfort.
Sunseeker 100 Yacht
The new Sunseeker 100 Yacht was launched in April 2022 and is set to surprise – every element has been carefully considered in meticulous detail. She features an elegant, powerful exterior. Her seamless flybridge sets a new era of Sunseeker’s design. A secluded private terrace, sunbathing hideaways, and generous ‘beach club’ are just a few of her remarkable features.
Azimut 30 Metri Magellano
The new Azimut flagship is designed by the same team as the previous mobel, Magellano 25 Metri. The exterior was styled by Ken Freivokh and the interior was made by Vincenzo De Cotiis. The new 30-meter yacht offers spacious, light-filled interiors that De Cotiis has successfully made intimate and inviting. The new Magellano spread across three decks. The design is inspired by the seamless contact with the sea, from the infinity terrace to the generous terrace on the upper deck for socializing and enjoying the pleasure of cruising in the open air. The huge windows – over 70 sq. m of glazed surfaces – also ensure uninterrupted visual continuity between the interior spaces and the surrounding natural environment.
At the Cannes Yachting Festival, German shipyard YYachts shows a brand new Y9. The yard’s newest flagship, the Y9, with a length of 27.40 m, presents the same volume of a 100ft yacht with a private owners’ apartment to offer maximum privacy, comfortable guest cabins and a large and flexible crew area. The yacht is a Bill Tripp design. The owner also wanted to have a noise free yacht at anchor. Therefore YYachts used solar panels at the sunroof plus hydro drives so that there is no need to use the generator at night. The interior of the Y9 was jointly developed by two design studios. Norm Architects from Copenhagen and Design Unlimited from Lymington combined their architectural and yachting experience and created a Scandinavian elegant look for the Y9 that follows the principle of "soft minimalism".
Lynx Crossover 27
Lynx Crossover 27, named Avontuur was built for the American owner. The vessel features naval architecture by the Alkmaar-based studio Diana Yacht Design and exterior design from the drawing boards of the Dutch studio Bernd Weel. Her interior was made by the French designer Franck Darnet. Avontuur offers three guest cabins and with the crew quarters also integrated into the guest space. Avontuur has a large light-filled main deck saloon, 70 sq. m main deck which transforms easily into a spacious entertainment area once the toys, an Air Nautique G23 and a five-meter RIB, are launched.
Ferretti 860 is the result of collaboration between the Strategic Product Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department. The yacht is the third yacht developed by architect Filippo Salvetti (exterior design) and Ideaitalia (interiors). Her features include the introduction of floor-to-ceiling windows and glass fashion plates, which punctuate the sleek, powerful silhouette and characterize the contours, and the windows in the hull and superstructure, which share the same family feeling as the brand’s latest models. The interior design is even more radical and striking, dominated by harmonious, flowing lines set off by several distinctive accents.
Grand Banks 85
The 26.58m Grand Banks 85 is the shipyard’s newest flagship. The GB85 is an ocean-going Bluewater cruiser that is also nimble with a shallow draft, making it equally suited for coastal cruising. Designed to travel efficiently at 21 knots for extended cruising, and easily handled by owner-operators, the internal configurations also accommodate spacious and impressive crew-quarters capabilities should that be the owners’ choice.
Sunreef 80 Eco
The Sunreef 80 Eco is a modern eco-yacht. Among its distinguishing features is a revolutionary patented, composite-integrated system of solar panels built into the hull, superstructure, bimini and mast of the catamaran. This award-winning 80ft electric yacht is also capable of producing clean energy while under sail thanks to a state-of-the-art hydro-generation system.
The updated Bering 70 yacht will be presented at the exhibition for the first time. The new B70 has a number of differences from the previous case: an additional 1.5 meters in overall length and an increase in its width by 1 meter. The yacht also received an alternative stateroom layout, with a spacious full-beam master stateroom located in the center and a large guest stateroom in the bow. Traditionally, Bering 70 will become a full-fledged stand open to guests.
Extra X76 Loft
The Extra X76 Loft naval architecture, as well as exterior design, of the newest X76 Loft, were created by the technical team of Palumbo Superyachts in collaboration with Guida Design. The interior is a creation of the Milan based studio Hot Lab. The direct connection with the sea is achieved through a generous 50 sq. m cockpit and the aft galley retractable window. All the on-board utilities can easily be powered by solar panels. The lower deck accommodates eight guests into four comfortable double cabins, of which the full-beam owner's cabin is located amidships.
The Numarine 22XP is the entry level boat in the XP Series to date. The exterior and interior design were made by Can Yalman, while Umberto Tagliavini took care of the efficient naval architecture. The new yacht has almost all the same features as the 26XP but inside a 22 meter hull. The 22XP’s interior is among the most voluminous for a 70-footer out there on the market. The layout of the 22XP offers three or four spacious cabins, including a full-beam master suite.
Astondoa 677 Coupe
Astondoa will unveil the 677 Coupe in Cannes. A model that defies the standards in its segment, is distinguished by its clean and sporty lines that flow along the length of the boat creating a suggestive and provocative profile. Its sensational interior capacity allows for three cabins with their private bathrooms and an optional fourth cabin. Its inverted bow, a hallmark of the Coupe range, as well as its large glass surfaces blend with the own lines of the boat, creating a unique silhouette that will captivate lovers of sporty sailing who are reluctant to do without luxury on board.
Prestige Motor Yachts will present the Prestige X60. The yacht offers an exceptional level of comfort, with multiple areas for relaxation and an entirely open ‘infinity cockpit’ that affords incredible views of the ocean and creates easy access through a large electric sliding door to the saloon. She will be accompanied by Prestige M48 – the first power catamaran from Prestige Yachts.
Pirelli 50, the flagship of TecnoRib's Walkarounds line, will be unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival. The 15-meter walkaround designed by Mannerfelt Design Team will be featured along with a Pirelli 42 and two models of the Pirelli 35, respectively the model that won the Red Dot Design Awards 2022 and a second sterndrive model.
Evo R4 XT Walkaround
Exactly a year after the official presentation of the yard’s flagship at the Cannes Yachting Festival, Evo Yachts is back with a new European preview: Evo R4 XT, a highly customized and appealing 13-meter walkaround. Evo R4XT walkaround is characterized by a new beach area with the full-custom multifunction stern platform developed by Besenzoni exclusively for the yard based on a design by Valerio Rivellini. This tender lift transformer – unheard of until now on a 40-footer – adds an extra meter in length to the boat and enables the entire length of the stern platform to fully submerge, facilitating access to the water or piers of any height in total safety and comfort.
