It's easy to fall in love with a classic, and M/Y Antisan is a stand out with a perfect mix of elegance and classicism. Based at Vieux Port, she is one of the best options for luxury yacht charter for groups in Cannes.
At 33 metres in length with a beam of almost 8 metres, she offers a well-priced charter experience where her generous dimensions place her as a fine choice for clients seeking space that is usually found on bigger yachts.
Available for Mediterranean charters throughout the year, Antisan's professional crew are highly skilled with service during luxury events and parties in Cannes and her onboard areas allow clients to maximise their experience for relaxing or entertaining as they wish.
Antisan has the capacity to host parties in port for up to 100 people, or even larger numbers during main events such as Cannes Lions, Cannes Film Festival, MIPIM, ILTM or MIDEM utilising the adjacent quay.
Her onboard areas are versatile and adaptable to the needs of private or corporate groups such as weddings, anniversaries, family birthdays, reunions, or corporate lunches. For anyone who seeks a lifestyle of pleasure, the key features of Antisan will only enhance that; from the inviting main salon and dining room to the lounge area on the aft deck or top deck, there are generous recreational areas.
The spacious sundeck space with fully-fitted biminis is ideal for both informal parties and formal gatherings – with adaptability to host 28 guests for a sit- down meal, throw a cocktail soirée with DJ and bar area or cruise the coastline on an informal day charter making use of the sun loungers, seating options and BOSE surround sound system to fully relax and take in the Mediterranean vistas. Of course, additional entertainment such as AV equipment, flair bar staff or party entertainers can be arranged to step the party up a notch!
On the main deck, guests can enjoy shaded al fresco dining for 10/12 people on the aft deck or head forward to the foredeck where raised sun-pads beckon for leisurely afternoons and the Jacuzzi provides a luxurious place to soak with a glass of Champagne.
The upscale finishing continues inside where the refined interiors with neutral fabrics in the main salon and dining room set the stage for a welcoming space to relax or host a business meeting. Warm mahogany wood, contemporary artworks and plump sofas add to a classy ambiance, with modern amenities such as a hi-fi entertainment system, satellite TV and home cinema ensuring an agreeable environment for leisure or business.
A huge advantage with Antisan is her rare certification to cruise the French Riviera with up to 40 passengers – most yachts are not permitted to cruise with more than 12 passengers - meaning charter clients for groups in Cannes can explore other destinations along the French Riviera.
One of the yacht's biggest assets is also her highly skilled crew. Captain Andrea Bianchi, with 35 years of charter experience offers 'perfection and detail' alongside his professional, multi-lingual crew who have worked together as a team for 8 years.
An important consideration for group events on the French Riviera is the cuisine and Antisan will design a menu tailored to your tastes, dietary requirements and guest numbers. When you arrive for your charter, the yacht is ready to go and fully stocked with your preferred food, wine and beverage selections.
Arrangements can be facilitated for special occasion dining, or catering for large corporate groups. Every meal, whether you're dining as a guest at an informal business lunch or formal Wedding breakfast will be artfully presented and a first class experience. Unrivalled service from expert crew and world-class food to satisfy any discerning palate means your Cannes luxury yacht charter is destination dining at its finest!
M/Y Antisan accommodates up to 11/12 guests in five comfortable ensuite cabins, so your guests can stay onboard and experience the magic of cruising in the Mediterranean.
The forward master suite is a pristine oasis with King bed, Wifi, satellite TV, telephone and a DVD player allowing for privacy with added touches for modern comfort. Special features are the ensuite bathroom with Jacuzzi, and the expansive picture windows which offer maximum natural light and give guests a privileged view of the sea while underway or at anchor.
Below deck, four additional suites accommodate guests in elegant comfort - a queen VIP suite, two double suites and a spacious twin suite with two single beds and a pullman bed. All guest rooms have ensuite bathrooms with shower, air conditioning, high-quality linens, Wifi, satellite TV, DVD player, telephone and stereo sound system.
Cannes itself is a popular place to visit in it's own right and clients booking static charters will find a lively destination to discover with all amenities easily reached from Anstisan’s berth. We can suggest the top restaurants to dine at in Cannes, the swishest cocktail bars to socialise at, where to find the best shopping in town and recommended places of interest.
Cutting distances short, Antisan has excellent sea keeping abilities underway - comfortably cruising at 25 knots and flirting with a top speed of 30 knots. Enjoy a morning at leisure in Cannes before taking advantage of the sun-beds as you cruise for lunch with guests in St Tropez or explore one of the other hotspots along the French Riviera coast.
As a charter yacht Antisan is not burdened by unnecessary equipment, yet holds enough water toys to ensure hours of fun! Along with the indispensable RIB tender, guests will find a jet ski, paddle boards, wakeboard, inflatable kayaks, towables, water skis, kneeboard and equipment for snorkelling and fishing. Extra toy requests can be accommodated.
The Îles de Lérins are a short distance away from Cannes and ideal for family charters with clear swimming waters and a network of walking trails. The islands have a vast history involving pirates which is sure to entertain the younger members onboard M/Y Antisan!
Stop by the Fort Royal on Île Sainte-Marguerite to see the cell where the Man in the Iron Mask was locked up, or venture to the tranquil Île Saint-Honorat where guests can roam amongst the vineyards, medieval fortress, island chapels and historically-listed cannonball ovens. The monks who live at the island monastery split their time between prayer and producing wine, fruit liqueurs or a herb-based liqueur ‘Lérina'; if you feel a need for benediction you can join a wine tasting session or buy a bottle at the island shop.
St Tropez, fabled and famous, is more than just a pretty town that Brigitte Bardot stamped onto the map. Reached within one and a half hours from Cannes on M/Y Antisan, it's a town that equally sets the bar for trendsetters as well as retains established traditions. Step ashore to browse the boutiques or watch boules at place des Lices, or visit the seasonal beach clubs at Plage de Pampelonne for dining on the sand. We recommend Bagatelle, Club Les Palmiers, Club 55 and Tahiti Beach where a chilled glass of Champagne is a prerequisite for an indulgent day.
A yacht charter to Monaco is a bucket list experience. Historical, splendid and decadent, this small Principality has plenty of things to see and do. Chance your luck at roulette at the Casino de Monte-Carlo, go shopping for haute couture, dine ashore at some of the world's best Michelin addresses such as Le Louis XV Alain Ducasse at Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo or soak up the atmosphere of the Palais Princier and Monaco-Ville. Enroute, beautiful bays will tempt you to spend a languid few hours; don't miss Paloma Beach at Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat or Plage Mala at Cap d'Ail.
Antisan is a success regarding her crew, features and layout and therefore unrivalled for comfort and capacity for a group yacht charter in Cannes. When booking her for your event, you'll quickly realise that everything mirrors the perfection that a luxury yacht charter should reach.

Dutch shipyard, Amels has confirmed that it will start building a 78-meter custom yacht designed by Espen Oeino. The yacht will become the shipyard's largest by gross tonnage and the first collaboration between Amels and Oeino.Acquired in 1991 by DAMEN Shipyards, Amels was established in 1918 and underwent several changes of ownership in the 1980s, including a brief period of time when it was owned by Donald Trump. The yard's most recent breakout success came with the Limited Edition series, made up of 6 models from 55 to 83 metres with exterior by Tim Heywood. The line became one of the most successful in the 50m+ range, with over 28 yachts sold.In 2014, Amels announced that it would create a Custom Yachts division, with the idea in mind to build bespoke yachts up to 110 meters in length. The first known iteration of this becomes the 78-meter Oeino-designed yacht that it plans to deliver in 2021.Although smaller in length than Amels' flagship 83,5m Here Comes The Sun, the new yacht will have an interior volume of over 2,850GT and therefore more than its flagship launched in 2016.
