The 43rd Cannes Yachting Festival will start next week on September 7. The event promises an exceptional display of the newest superyachts. We choose ten of them.
Panam bears the signature of Francesco Paszkowski Design both for the exterior and the interior, the latter in collaboration with Margherita Casprini. Sleek and aggressive, this 40m has impressive performances, ensured by the aluminum alloy hull and three MTU engines 16V2000 M96L and three KaMeWa water-jet engines (n. 2 x S71-4 on the sides and one central booster S63B-4), which push her up to a maximum speed of 31 knots and a pleasant cruising speed of 25 knots. The interior is in a contemporary style with warm woods, light shades of gray and taupe embellished with onyx and marbles chosen by the owner.
Cantiere delle Marche’s first Flexplorer superyacht Aurelia features design by Hydro. She has collapsible aft deck bulwarks, which fold out to port and starboard to create an “infinity deck”. The loft styled interiors made by Francesco Paszkowski Design. She has an asymmetrical layout on the main deck. One of her remarkable features are the bulwarks that are collapsible on both sides for around 7 meters to increase the deck space astern. Once the bulwarks are folded down it becomes a beach area of more than 115 sq. m.
The 38.2m long and 7.9m wide, the Azimut Trideck is the new flagship of Azimut Yachts. The Trideck proposes a revolutionary layout, both indoors and outdoors. The yacht has three decks + one, offering a new space, an extra deck at the stern that fits among the traditional ones. It is the sea view terrace, a floating aft deck of 30 sq. m that seems to remain suspended in the air, two meters above the water. The exterior design was penned by Alberto Mancini. The interior is made by Achille Salvagni. The new symbol of the brand’s innovative DNA.
Motopanfilo 37M is a fiberglass and composite yacht designed by Lazzarini Pickering Architects for the interiors and Francesco Struglia in collaboration with Benetti for the exterior. Her elegant lines evoke were inspired by the Benetti “navette” from the ‘60s. Very retro and very modern at the same time.
The 37XP has a full displacement steel hull with a composite superstructure. The exterior is made by Can Yalman and naval architecture by Umberto Tagliavini. The interior penned by Hot Lab. She has an impressive 345 GT with a 5,000 nautical mile range at 10 knots.
SL120 Asymmetric is the name of the new flagship of the asymmetric line by Sanlorenzo. The external and internal lines of the SL120 Asymmetric were designed by studio Zuccon International Project. The Asymmetry allows the expansion of the main salon, eliminating the starboard side deck and maximizing connection with the sea by creating an ample dining room on one side, with full-height glazing, and a living area on the other side. Very unique, very Sanlorenzo.
Wally WHY200 is the latest motor yacht developed by the Wally design team led by Luca Bassani and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, with the collaboration of Laurent Gile NA for the naval architecture and A. Vallicelli & C for the interior design. The new compact yacht weighs in at 200 GT and under 24m (78’8”) load line length, but conveys the comfort and space of a much larger displacement yacht alongside the speed advantages of a semi-displacement yacht. A spacious owner’s suite with the uninterrupted 200-degree views is the absolutely must see.
Extra X86 'Haze'
The X86 modern exterior lines are made by Francesco Guida. Interior signed by Lawson Robb. The large seamless windows offer a magical sensation of being inside a large crystal dome, providing great brightness to the exclusive internal living areas and a 360° panoramic view. The main features of the G.A. include the forward wheelhouse, which makes the saloon and aft deck very spacious and ideal for being transformed into an "entertainment space for late indoor movies". Spacious and unusual.
76' Perseo Super
With an overall length of 23.25m and a maximum beam of 5.75m, the new Riva sport-fly is a result of collaboration between the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, designer Mauro Micheli, the founder of Officina Italiana Design with Sergio Beretta, and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department. Over 40 sq. m of glazed surfaces on the hull and in the superstructure characterise the yacht’s sleek profile and enhance the sporty look of the exterior styling. She has a large cockpit with the dining area, which can be easily converted to a spacious sun pad. The sun deck offers a place both to relax and to pilot the boat. True Italian signature craftsmanship.
With one-off design by BG Design Firm, as well as bespoke engineering and hull lines by Umberto Tagliavini Marine Design, the new Otam 70HT is the epitome of dynamic performance and timeless style. At 22.30m in length and with a beam of 5.40m and 21 degrees of deadrise, the 70HT is very seaworthy, spacious and comfortable for a speedy luxury cruiser of her size. Clients are free to choose their own layout and interior solutions. A key feature of the interiors is the futuristic dashboard, also designed by BG Design Firm. It’s inspired by the aeronautical and automotive world and the design resembles the console of a jet fighter.

Italian Daily Nautica reports that 27m Naseem caught fire and later flooded. The incident happened on Thursday the 12th May in Puglia. The Coast Guard tried to put out the fire and rescued three crew members, but unfortunately the yacht sanked. The cause of the fire is unknown and will be investigated. Naseem was delivered by Dominator in 2009. With a beam of 6.6 m and a draft of 2.5 m, she had a GRP hull and GRP superstructure. She was powered by Caterpillar engines of 1800 hp each giving her a maximum speed of 24 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots. Naseem's maximum range is estimated at 420 nautical miles.

The shipbuilder Alpha Custom Yachts is a family-owned company recognized for its elegant, unique, and innovative vessels. The brand’s new-build yachts can be completely customized according to the clients preferences. The brand new Spritz 116 might be the perfect example of awe-inspiring features. With five guest staterooms including a full-beam master cabin, it’s hard to beat all the perks of this particular model. There are many benefits to owning a new Alpha Custom Yacht, especially the Spritz 116. Here are the three main features:Huge interior and exterior volumeAlpha Custom Yachts worked with Italian superyacht designer Giorgio Cassetta and naval architect Laurent Giles to create a distinct vessel with an elegant interior layout as well as a well-thought-out exterior space for the Spritz 116. Like many Alpha yachts, the interior of this yacht prioritizes comfort without compromising personal space. The size of the heads and the width of beds in the twin cabins are similar to a 145’ yacht. In the VIP cabins, the beds are king-size, providing plenty of room to move around. This is made possible by an exceptionally wide beam – the molded beam is a rare 26’11” on a yacht of this length. For comparison, the beam of yachts of comparable length is often at least 3 feet less. Aside from the obvious implication it has on volume, the hull design (combined with lightweight composite construction) has also resulted in an extremely shallow draft of 5’8”, which is desirable for cruising in areas like the Bahamas to the Sea of Cortez in Mexico.Alpha Spritz 116 outdoor spaces have several spots available to lay out in full sun or shade. The aft deck features a hydraulically operated platform capable of supporting a tender, an impressive plunge pool that can be covered with teak to serve as a dance floor, an outdoor lounge overlooking the pool, and a stunning outdoor dining area–more on that later. Another spacious lounge with plenty of seating is found on the foredeck, and the 100 sq. m flybridge deck boasts not only lots of space and panoramic views.Enclosed exterior diningFamily-owned shipbuilder Alpha Yachts is known to build its vessels with shared space and family in mind. With that notion, all its yachts feature an extremely well-planned outdoor dining space. The Spritz 116 aft deck includes a vast and well-protected dining area large enough for 12 guests–something that doesn’t often happen on a yacht of its size. The space is enclosed for a pleasant and comfortable outdoor dining experience. The covered alfresco dining space is located forward on the aft deck and connects the outdoor beach club and the interior main salon. It is fitted with a large marble dining table and a portside wet bar. Overhead, the teak ceiling helps wick away moisture and is specially designed to include air conditioning vents, LED lighting, and a surround sound system.Endless customization optionsThe Spritz 116 can be furnished and adapted as you see fit and to your liking. Any specific custom features might be added. For the shipbuilders and designers, “the whole vision…was addressing the needs of people who own those boats, rather than those of the yard – to ignore compromises that are usually accepted to make yachts cost-effective and unnecessarily conservative in style and layout,” Cassetta explains. Key examples are the 7’ 3” ceilings, extensive sound insulation, floating floors, crew cabins with elevated beds, gentle and wide stairs, wide beds, full-size showers and closets, custom paint touches at the waterline and on the radar domes, and so much more. But above all that, there is so much more that can be customized. Alpha Custom Yachts was founded by two brothers, Jorge And Roberto Aboumrad, who recount that their love for the sea started at an early age. They began their journey in the industry over 30 years ago, founding Performance Boats, which is now the largest boat dealer in Mexico. They began to realize that their ideal yacht, one that prioritized connection between friends, family, and the sea, was simply not on the market. They were inspired to take matters into their own hands. Drawing inspiration from actual yacht owners and their needs, they surpassed the limitations of traditional yacht design and forged a new standard of design and engineering for yachts in the 30-meter size range.Denison has long been a leader in the yachting industry with a rich family history dating back to 1948, and the start of Broward Marine in Fort Lauderdale. Today the company provides complete yachting services worldwide, including superyacht sales, yacht charter, crew placement, and new construction.
