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.

Cloud 9 spotted in Bonifacio, France
Recently delivered CRN Yachts vessel Cloud 9 has been spotted in Bonifacio after being seen in Portofino, Italy, a couple of days ago. Launched in January 2017, the 74-meter Cloud 9 becomes the shipyard's second largest yacht to date, outranked only by the 80-meter Chopi Chopi. Burgess acted as Owner’s Representatives throughout the project.With an exterior by Zuccon and an interior by Winch Design, Cloud 9 is able to accommodate up to 16 guests (12 when chartering) in a master suite, a VIP suite and 6 guest cabins catered to by a crew of 22. Focused on a free interior-exterior flow, Cloud 9 boasts over 1,000 square meters of liveable space. Amongst the yacht's key amenities are a private deck, complete with an intimate lounging area, forward of the master cabin, an extensive beach club with an extended platform. From a technical standpoint, the yacht is featured by twin Caterpillar 3516C engines of 2,680 hp each, giving Cloud 9 a maximum speed of 16.5 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots.The owner's previous Cloud 9 was a 60-meter CMN built in 2009 and sold in June 2015 at an asking price of €34,900,000. She has since been renamed to Ice Angel, a name previously held by a 50-meter Heesen, which is currently on the market asking €22,500,000.Photo by Julien Hubert
4th Horizon PR110 hits the water in Taiwan
Hull four of the Horizon Yachts RP110 yacht model has been launched earlier this month in Taiwan. 33.53m yacht will be delivered to the U.S. as an inventory yacht for sale with Horizon Yacht USA.The Horizon RP110 features naval architecture by Horizon and Donald Blount and exterior styling by J.C. Espinosa. A spacious salon and dining area accommodates 8 to 10 guests, and her spacious 25’ beam and interior layout provides five staterooms – with an on-deck Master – plus separate crew quarters forward in the bow. The interior design features mahogany as the main wood and accents of santos rose and camel-colored leather.Also found on board the RP110 are extensive outdoor areas, including a tender garage that can serve as a beach club, large aft deck settee, and flybridge with a full bar, dinette seating and Jacuzzi. Additionally, the RP110's innovative double-chine hull design provides stability and shallow draft, along with enhanced hydrodynamics to minimize drag and improve overall performance.Since the debut of the Horizon RP110 superyacht in 2013, three hulls – including hull one that delivered to a repeat U.S. owner – have since been sold to the owners around the world, and hull four will mark the second RP110 in the U.S. Horizon Yachts has recently delivered hull one of its new E98 motoryacht series that has been launched in February this year. The Taiwanese shipyard also announced the signing of a CC115 superyacht order for new owners from Mexico with the delivery in 2018.
Norway: the steady rise of Scandinavia in yachting
Yachting tends to be associated with its early Mediterranean roots, yet recent accelerating growth in the superyacht sector in Norway may indicate the beginning of a shift to new yachting hubs. From Espen Oeino's influence on yacht design to the largest yacht in the world to be built in Norway, the country's mark on yachting continues to strengthen as capacity in Northern Europe starts to lack.Monaco-based Espen Oeino has been designing yachts since 1986, penning the lines of many of the the world's leading shipyards' flagships including Lurssen's 156-meter Dilbar, Heesen's 70-meter Galactica Super Nova and Fincantieri's 140-meter Ocean Victory. The Norwegian designer's most ambitious projects may however be the 181.6-meter REV to be built by Vard for Norwegian billionaire, Kjell Inge Røkke valued by Forbes at $2,7 billion and primarily known in the business world as the majority stakeholder in Aker, a shipping and offshore drilling conglomerate.Scheduled for delivery in 2020, the 181.6-meter yacht, set to be the world's largest, will be built by Norwegian shipyard, Vard, topping Azzam's length by almost 2 meters. "The REV will be a platform for gathering knowledge", explained Kjell Inge Røkke, "I would like to welcome researchers, environmental groups, and other institutions on board to acquire new skills to evolve innovative solutions to address challenges and opportunities connected to the seas".Operated for scientific excursions in tandem with WWF Norway, the Research Expedition Vessel should also be made available for charters of up to 36 guests to help fund more scientific work. Vard was chosen for the build as Mr Røkke's first large trawler came from the shipyard, from which continued a 30-year long working relationship between the two.The REV won't however be the first significant megayacht coming out of Norway. Indeed in 2013, Graeme Hart, New Zealand's richest man, ordered a 107-meter explorer from Norway-based commercial shipyard, Kleven. In November 2014, as the first Ulysses was under build, Hart commissioned a second 116-meter explorer from the yard.Delivered in 2016, the 107-meter Ulysses was dubbed by many as the ultimate explorer due to her 22-meter tender on her bow, launched by two special cranes. Amongst her stand-out attributes are a 8,500nm range, an 11-meter swimming pool on the upper deck and a helicopter garage on the top deck."I am very pleased with the quality of the work that has been done by Kleven, and how our organization have worked together to bring this exciting project to life', commented Graeme Hart in November 2014 on Kleven's work on the first Ulysses.Soon after her delivery, the explorer designed by Norwegian firm, Marin Teknikk, was put on the market asking $195 million ahead of the delivery of the new 116-meter Ulysses scheduled later this year.Amidst growing development coming from the Norwegian superyacht ecosystem, a new player announced it was diversifying into the sector in November 2016. Ulstein Verft, a commercial shipyard based in Norway, then confirmed it was building a 88.5-meter yacht, designed by Espen Oeino, for one of the world's biggest ship owners.With the marine platform and hull line design being developed by Ulstein itself and the general arrangement and exterior being penned by Oeino's Monaco-based studio, the 88.5-meter is set to be delivered already in the first quarter of 2018, a significant advantage of Norwegian upstarts compared to established superyacht yards in Northern Europe where waiting lists typically extend for several years for builds of this size.Yacht construction and design is however not the only thriving part of the Norwegian superyacht ecosystem. In recent years, an increasingly important number of superyachts have started coming to visit Norway and its fjords amidst a thirst for new destinations. This uptick has become so significant that an association called Superyacht Norway was even established by local players to promote the destination.Although still in an embryonic stage compared to the Med or the Caribbean, the May through September charter season in Norway is attracting more and more yachts. Recently, these have included visitors such as the 33.5-meter Feadships Kamino and Moon Sand Too and the 73.69-meter Ilona.Popular destinations in Norway for superyacht cruises include Rosendal, a port at the foot of the Folgefonna glacier, near ski slopes, trek paths and waterfalls as well as Lofthus, a small privately-run port deep within a fjord with its own five-star hotel often visited by Norway's Queen and other high-profile visitors.Although still in its very early stages, Norway's superyacht scene could soon start to rival the more established yachting hubs in Northern Europe and the Mediterranean, perhaps unlocking areas in Norway and Scandinavia as new yachting destinations.
Hakvoort Soprano delivered
On April 7, 38.25m motoryacht Soprano has been launched at Hakvoort. Now it has been confirmed that the yacht has been delivered to her owner.This project is the result of collaboration between the Dutch shipyard, naval architects Diana Yacht Design and interior designers Felix Buytendijk Yacht Design. Designed with a displacement-type hull shape, she features flared V-sections in the bow, large overhangs, a moderate deadrise amidships and a canoe stern. Suitable for global bluewater cruising, the yacht provides accommodation for 8 guests and 7 crew members. Located on the main deck, the owner’s suite includes a stateroom with a king-size bed and bathroom forward. The main lounge contains two sofas in an open plan arrangement with the dining area, which centers on a table for 10 guests. The open aft area will have a built-in seating with teak table. A foldout platform amidships will be recessed into the side the hull giving access to the water for boarding and swimming.On the bridge deck is another lounge, which leads out on to an open aft area with al fresco dining table for 10 guests. The aft deck also houses the main tender while the fore deck hosts a laser sailboat and the MOB tender. The captain’s cabin can be found aft of the the wheelhouse. The accommodation is found on the lower deck, which will contain two double guest staterooms and a VIP stateroom. Crew quarters include a well-equipped mess, three comfortable cabins and smart connections to storage areas and technical spaces. The sun deck features a wealth of open space for sunbathing as well as another built-in seating with teak table. A large whirlpool bathtub forward is able to accommodate four to six people and a BBQ grill is installed in the bar.Soprano is a real gentleman’s yacht, blending the timeless beauty of our maritime tradition with lots of modern touches. She provides an excellent performance at sea, is exceptionally quiet and is superbly finished: the quality of the materials – the finest marbles and woods – is as important as the seamless way in which they have been fitted together. The owners asked us to create the full package for them – and Soprano certainly deliversDirector Albert Hakvoort jrHakvoort has launched its biggest yacht to date, 61m Just J's in November 2015.
