Take a look at our selection of 16 motor yachts to be displayed at the Cote d’Azur
The first part of the Yachts Croatia guide for the Cannes Yachting Festival is dedicated to yachts longer than 27 meters, and this part is dedicated to motor yachts that can be seen at the largest European nautical fair.
Absolute 48 Coupé
Absolute 48 Coupé stands out for her bold style, high level of usability, and a strong commitment to sustainability. For example, her roof is equipped with a set of solar panels, one of which is transparent to let in natural light without overheating the room. In the salon, the large side windows envelop the entire deck and, together with the panoramic windshield, offer uninterrupted visibility.
From the inside, this breathtaking view turns into an actual 360-degree panorama. The cockpit is wide and extremely cozy, with no visual barriers or fixed obstacles.
For this reason, its space can be adapted to multiple configurations, transforming itself to the desired way of life on board. The opening of the side gunwales offers a direct view of the sea and the new glazed balustrades towards the stern give an unparalleled scenery, even from the salon and the helm station.
The outdoor furniture can be easily arranged in different configurations, adapting to the different needs onboard: perfect for either maximum relaxation or intriguing conversations.
Absolute 60 Fly
The 60 Fly is a yacht that will redefine the range with new ground-breaking design elements never seen on a Flybridge boat of these dimensions, such as the Owner’s quarter at the bow and the aft cockpit terrace, free from any fixed furniture elements.
A new perspective is offered by the bow master cabin – the cabin is raised from the lower deck, the ceiling is high, and the array of textures and colors chosen for the interior design will satisfy even the most refined tastes.
The atmosphere is sophisticated and relaxed, dedicated to the owner’s comfort and privacy: the walk-in wardrobe, the vanity with a sea view, and the wide side windows to feel fully immersed in nature complete the ambience.
The exterior lines are now enriched by elegant transparencies, thanks to the glazed balustrades that offer breath-taking views from both the fly and the cockpit: the latter, thought without fixed elements, can be furnished at the owner’s taste for the first time.
Great care for the furniture as well: on board the Absolute 60 Fly modular furniture can be adapted to the actual use. The areas are dedicated to the social moments with family and friends, to enjoy panoramas in complete freedom: various configurations are available for the owner to choose from, in order to fully enjoy the on-board life as desired.
Azimut 53 is the new Azimut proposal that will compete in the market segment of mid-range Flybridge boats. With streamlined lines, it hides surprisingly large spaces inside, perfect for a family wishing to spend extended cruises on board in absolute comfort. The external design, characterized by a refined aesthetic, is the work of Alberto Mancini while the interiors, elegant and contemporary in style, are designed by the Azimut Style Office.
Azimut Magellano 66
The new Magellano 66 is a modern and timeless Navetta. The internal layout, thanks to the boat’s generous dimensions, offers an extraordinary level of comfort and versatility. The spacious day zone is designed to optimise onboard living, distributed over a single level, with vast windows creating an airy, light-filled environment.
Outside too there is also no shortage of space, and there is no better example of this than the impressively large flybridge, with a stern lounge area that can also incorporate an American bar.
At her worldwide debut, Azimut 68 is the newest model in the Azimut Yachts Flybridge Collection. Designed to be the most modern and fashionable of all the yachts in her range, Azimut 68 is pure avant-garde. The dynamic exterior lines of this 21m yacht are pinned by Alberto Mancini while the elegant interiors are designed by Achille Salvagni.
Beneteau Grand Trawler 62
Grand Trawler 62 is a long-distance cruiser at heart and the perfect embodiment of ‘slow living’. She has an exceptional cruising range of 900 nautical miles with 10% fuel reserve and at a cruising speed of 9 knots. Fitted with two MAN i6 730 hp engines, she is optimised for adventure, with reserve power to reach 20 knots when required.
Designed by Micad naval architectural office, her full displacement hull was specifically developed to optimise the passagemaker’s cruising range and efficiency. The hull is well protected by high freeboards and has been studied to roam seas across the world. She is modern with flowing lines and her extensive living areas in the open air are cleverly juxtaposed with enclosed spaces bathed in light from generous glazing.
The impressive 31 square metres of flybridge space makes it one of the largest in this size. The Grand Trawler 62 is available in two versions: three or four cabins. The owner suite is situated midships in the three cabin layout, making good use of the maximum beam. With the four cabin layout the forward guest cabin becomes the owner’s cabin.
Beneteau Gran Turismo 45
The Gran Turismo 45 sets new standards in terms of functionality and on board hospitality. With its large windows, vast sundeck and U-shaped cockpit seating, the GT 45 fosters conviviality and the enjoyment of a great indoor-outdoor experience.
Designed with versatility in mind, the Gran Turismo 45 offers unrivalled adaptability to changing conditions, allowing the crew to elevate on board liveability to another level. The Gran Turismo 45 offers excellent handling on the water. It’s Air Step hull provides outstanding performance and superb manoeuvrability, whatever the speed and sea conditions.
At low speed, the boat can be steered easily using the joystick and the optional bow thruster giving you fingertip control over in-harbour manoeuvres and berthing operations. When at sea, the pilot can open the throttle and enjoy the thrilling sensations of the inboard engines – Volvo Z-Drive D6-380/DPH (2 X 380 HP) or Volvo D6-IPS 600 (2 X 440 HP).
Faithful to overcoming every stereotype, which has always been the brand’s stylistic hallmark, with the new BG72 Bluegame expresses at its absolute best its cross-over soul, which is not satisfied with belonging to just one segment.
On the contrary, the BG72 goes even further by combining the concepts of the BG and BGX ranges; the result is a successful encounter between open and flybridge. The BG72’s surprising layout, with a completely open upper deck and the original lower deck of the BGX range, is destined to bring together lovers of both types of craft, removing all compromises.
Evo V8 is the new fascinating project by Blu Emme Yachts, the shipyard behind renown brand Evo Yachts, destined to be a talking point with its innovative design and extraordinary technological content. An exterior and interior layout that can be transformed in seconds to cater for an unbelievable variety of uses, combined with the ambition to offer a totally new concept of cruising at the intersection between the worlds of sailing and motor yachts, make Evo V8 a unique and unprecedented concept for a new type of owner.
With a design penned by Valerio Rivellini, the new 24-meter springs from the desire to find the point of intersection between suggestions from the two worlds of sailing and motor yachts.
Pardo Endurance 60
The new Endurance 60, like all Pardo yachts, is designed to offer comfort and style on board, ease of use and great reliability over time, as a result of a fully controlled manufacturing chain. The yacht owner is paid great attention as evidenced by the position of the master cabin, the generous and finely furnished spaces, private with stylistic and functional details, ideal for relaxation below deck.
The Endurance 60 fully embraces the night & day cruiser philosophy: excellent soundproofing guarantees silent navigation and low consumption even at night, continuity between interiors and exteriors during the sunny hours of the day is ensured by the large side windows of the main deck which, when open, create a continuous space between the bar and the dinette with the external aft table.
The result is a real floating terrace that extends the stern area to 41 square meters (including the large swim platform) for complete relaxation in close contact with the sea. The hull lines based on thorough CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) analyses (the same performed on sailing yachts) allow this boat to navigate at 10-12 knots when cruising and at 23-25 knots when planing. All these features, along with low consumption and hybrid engine provision, make the new Endurance 60 a yacht with a strong vocation for eco-sustainability.
Self-assured and defiant, with innovative features and an incredible top speed of 48 knots: Pershing 6X expresses the boldest and most daring side of the brand’s character, the side that always appeals to lovers of excitement on the water.
Compact but in no way incomplete, it packs all the best of the brand’s leading-edge technology into a compact form factor. 18.94 metres long and 4.80 metres wide, Pershing 6X turns heads with its highly aerodynamic profile and large glazed surfaces in the hull that flood the lower deck with natural light.
The main novelties include style features that clearly reflect Pershing’s approach to design in recent years, further improving functional and comfort-related design goals without affecting outstanding performance.
They include the new styling of the big aft sun pad, the carbon and teak table in the cockpit dining area, and the chaise longue with reclining backrest positioned forward. The first Pershing 6X unit has a layout with three cabins – master, VIP forward and guest starboard – and three bathrooms with separate shower.
The new Prestige 690 that joins the F-Line reflects the heritage of the brand and integrates all the latest evolutions. Spacious and bright, everything on board has been carefully considered for living close to the sea. Benefiting from the renowned experience of the Garroni Design office, she offers an immense Flybridge over 22 square meters and, like the X70, unequalled fit and finish.
The Flybridge is completely open and offers multiple layouts, with an island lounge, lounge chairs, or an outdoor saloon with a comfortable sofa. This space is equipped with a large dining area that can accommodate up to six people and a large, fully equipped galley. Particular attention has been paid to fit and finish: woods are selected with meticulous attention to detail, corners are rounded, metal is stainless steel, polish is perfected, and welds are as discrete as possible.
The interior layout is carefully considered to offer more ease of movement, more comfort on board, and more privacy.
Separate access to the owner’s stateroom affords full privacy, even when the Prestige 690 is configured with four staterooms. New standard equipment includes Ship Control, the system that enables you to access all of the electronic functions of your boat via your multifunction display screen or smartphone. The Prestige is also powered by optimised Volvo IPS 1200 or IPS 1350 twin engines with joystick control for ease of handling, well adapted even for short-handed cruising.
Princess Y72 is the latest addition to the sophisticated Y Class range, delivering a new level of design, luxury, interior ambience and space alongside stunning performance and technology. Featuring beautifully sculpted exterior forms, theY72 is fitted with expansive full-length hull windows, also seen on the Y95.
Indoor and outdoor living areas are optimised to create sociable yet practical spaces. The Y72 is designed for outdoor living, with an optional extended hardtop with electric opening louvered roof section or glass panel, to allow the sunlight in as you embark on your voyage.
The flybridge is the perfect place to entertain loved ones. Her layout is comparable to that of larger Y Class yachts, offering two seating areas and aft sunpad. The large U-shaped dining area, appointed with handcrafted teak table, is situated opposite a fully equipped wetbar with electric barbecue, sink and drawer fridge, creating the ideal space to enjoy al-fresco dining. The aft sunpad can also be replaced with three sunbeds or optional crane to lift and stow a Williams Sportjet 395 or equivalent tender.
Forward on the lower deck, six guests can enjoy three beautifully appointed guest cabins filled with light from the full-length hull glazing. A dedicated staircase leads from the main deck to the full-beam owner’s stateroom amidships, via a private lobby area connected to the saloon. The all-new Princess Y72 is fitted with powerful twin MAN V12 engines – either 1400mhp or 1650mhp variants – the latter powering the Y72 up to 34 knots.
Riva 68 Diable
The new Riva 68 Diable incorporates inspiring technological and design innovations, accompanied by the cultured taste for tradition and fine detailing that is the brand’s stylistic hallmark today.
One of the main new features and strengths of this open is the new hard top with a clean, linear design in which the technical and technological components are hidden from sight, protecting and sheltering the central part of the yacht and therefore the dining area and the helm station on the main deck. Equally impressive is the sunroof that can be opened either at the front or the back, for the utmost in liveability and wellbeing when cruising.
The layout of the lower deck offers three cabins for six guests arranged around an open space containing a galley and a dinette for versatility and comfort, with the master cabin amidships, a double cabin with single beds on the port side, and a VIP cabin forward.
The Sirena 68 brings together all the qualities that an experienced cruisers would seek in a new yacht—essentially an upgrade in comfort and confidence in all areas. The vibe of the Sirena 68 starts with the details. When each person steps aboard, their eyes come to rest on a facet or a fabric, an accent or an angle, some hint that lets them know they’re welcome in a way that is somehow simultaneously familiar and new.
Like all Sirena’s, the 68 incorporates the innovative German Frers hull design which delivers world-class range by allowing displacement speeds for extended cruising.
The saloon welcomes those entering from the aft deck where a dining area and open-concept galley awaits them. One will notice the play of light in this expansive space, as enormous panes of glass draw the eye to ever-changing views. On the lower deck the amidship master stretches across the full beam, where a king-size berth welcomes the owner, a floating sensation is provided thanks to the unique inventive lighting design and to the large hullside windows admit natural light.
Sunseeker Manhattan 55
Exemplifying the latest in Sunseeker’s exceptional design capabilities, the Manhattan 55 is crafted to enhance comfort and cruising whilst providing owners with an array of social spaces from the vast flybridge to the generous saloon. The exceptional layout allows owner and guests to move effortlessly between entertaining spaces.
A key feature that truly sets the Manhattan 55 apart from its peers is the innovative powered glass cockpit/galley window that can be lowered at the touch of a button. With the adjacent cockpit door open, this feature creates an exceptional inside/outside environment.
The interiors boast exquisite attention to detail with a new palate of upholstery that provides a contemporary look.
The lighting design has been exceptionally well-considered throughout and includes concealed lighting within ceiling panels and furniture. Powered by new Volvo Penta D13-800 engines, the Manhattan 55 can cruise comfortably at 25 knots with a range of 230 nautical miles or achieve more than 30 knots at full throttle.
