In Detail the Top Ten Yachts at Cannes are:
XP26 from Numarine Comfort on board a yacht is everything, and here with their XP26 a yacht making her world debut Numarine have taken great care in eliminating or reducing all sources of noise and vibration. The on-board systems that resolve these issues are from the shipyard’s longstanding partner Silent Line, noise and vibration experts for luxury yachts, commercial vessels, and industrial and architectural projects. Usually, this advanced technology is applied on much bigger yachts over 80 metres in length
R35 from Princess Yachts Radical in that the boat uses a dynamic foil system, to dramatically improve stability and seakeeping, whilst reducing drag by up to 30 per cent the builder has worked in collaboration with BAR Technologies, the company behind Britain’s last attempt to win back the America’s Cup. The Princess Active Foil System (AFS) does not elevate the hull above the waterline like the America’s Cup sailing yachts. Instead, it uses the lift to dynamically adjust the heel and running angle to optimize both ride and comfort.
S6 from Azimut Yachts is the second model in the new S generation sports range from Azimut Yachts, featuring the extensive use of carbon for its construction and representing another milestone in the shipyard’s pioneering research and development work. The combination of Carbon Tech and a propulsion system with three Volvo Penta IPS pods puts the yacht at the forefront of technology in its category, with the ability to achieve unprecedented levels of efficiency combined with peerless handling and silent running.
Majesty 125 from Gulf Craft After enjoying decades of great growth as Middle East’s leading shipyard, Gulf Craft is at the threshold of a new journey forward, fueled by a three-point strategy that redefines three key development areas. Before to see what we mean by visiting Altavita
GT320 from Invictus Yachts The new GT 320, the third model in the GT range, combines all the features of other models in the range, such as the manoeuvrability and dynamic properties of the 280GT and the large liveable areas for comfortable cruising of the 370GT flagship. The new model will be offered with single or twin engines and a broad range of power options.
A105 from Arcadia Yachts Developed by the shipyard together with Hot Lab studio, the A105 concept takes Arcadia Yachts signature convivial and al fresco spaces to a whole new level. Contact with the surrounding nature is ensured thanks to large apertures that reduce the need for air-conditioning, solar panels integrated into the superstructure, and the extensive use of highly efficient thermal insulating glass. On the upper deck, the convertible sky lounge opens aft onto the sun lounge to create a 65-sq/m relaxation area.
Euphoria E54 from Sienna Yachts Designed by German Frers – now available also in a new twin rudder version – continues to be a great commercial success.
74 Sport from Sunseeker Sporty and sleek, the brand new Sunseeker 74 Sport Yacht, with 38 knot capability, boasts the latest Sunseeker design cues and sporting prowess as the recently launched Predator 74. However, while maintaining her dynamic look, the in-house design team at Sunseeker has created the 74 Sport Yacht with an exceptional flybridge – almost unperceivable within her profile lines.
The Foiler from Enata Delivering a smooth and exhilarating ride for passengers, Foiler offers a comfortable high-performance hybrid propulsion driving new experience. Its retractable carbon fibre hydrofoils deliver strength, rigidity and lightness, allowing the yacht to fly 1.5 meters above the water for the most exciting and relaxing yachting experience. Foiler is completely out of the water at 17 knots with a maximum speed of 40 knots in flight mode
Silent 55 from Silent Yachts Making her world debut at the show This is the first and only oceangoing solar-electric production catamaran in the world.
