CANNES, Sept 7 — From September 8-13, during the Cannes Yachting Festival, the city will be able to boast the most luxurious port in the world. Take a virtual visit of five of the most beautiful yachts of the tradeshow before the official opening.
Benetti Crystal 140’
In Cannes, luxury yacht builder Benetti will present its Crystal 140’ model, a name that echoes the light that travels through the prestigious boat. Four decks are available to passengers and the main deck is built to function as the very heart of the vessel. A large sofa and bar have been installed for the relaxation angle. Normally reserved for water scooters and other water vehicles, the stern has been furnished specifically for sunbathing. The space includes a shower, bathroom, refrigerator and several lounge chairs. The yacht can accommodate a party of 12 pampered by a crew of 7. The Crystal is 137 ft. long and 29 ft. wide and the yacht’s fuel reserve, limited to 58,000 liters, allows this sea colossus to travel 4,000 nautical miles.
Azimut Magellano 66
This vessel is the latest of the brand’s Magellano range—boats dedicated to cruising and whose style is a modern take on trawlers. The Magellano 66 only began its adventure this summer and boaters will get a first look during the Cannes Yachting Festival. The vessel allows passengers to relax on the main deck at the first level while enjoying the view from the cockpit so as not to miss out on the pleasures of navigation. Special attention was given to the rest of the boat where a large elevated bed has been installed under which is a number of storage compartments. In total, the yacht includes five cabins, one reserved for the crew.
C.Boat 27 SC “S Version”
In the range of boats built from steel and aluminum, this model was launched in June of 2015. Thanks to large scuttle windows, the vessel is bright and allows for closer contact with the water. Inside, the layout is sleek and only the most prestigious materials have been used. The yacht includes five cabins, each equipped with separate shower and private bathroom.
Fjord 48 Open
With its ability to sail up to 40 knots, this boat is ideal for sports enthusiasts. It is also equipped with a garage space to store water scooters and other sea vehicles and can be used as a scuba-diving platform. For those less in search of thrills, sunbathing is also an option. In the cockpit, lounge chairs can be unfolded for some much deserved relaxation.
Otam Millennium 80 HT “Mr Brown”
This sporty vessel, built by the Italian Otam navy yard is not just for yachtsmen in search of speed. Accompanying guests will be thrilled to sink into one of the four leather armchairs situated close to the pilot. Interior decoration is elegantly refined thanks to the use of ebony, teck and raw textiles and leathers in natural shades. — AFP-Relaxnews
