THIS YEAR’S CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL will again be the leading showcase for new models from the world’s leading luxury yacht builders, with about 100 world premieres sitting among 500 motor yachts and 100 sailing boats on display from Vieux Port to the superyacht-focused Port Pierre Canto.

Azimut Yachts will again be one of the dominant exhibitors as the Italian builder stages an 18-strong display including three world premieres: the Azimut S6, Azimut Grande 25 Metri and Azimut Grande 32 Metri (see Special Feature). In addition, the yard’s 55 Flybridge and Atlantis 51 launched at Boot Dusseldorf in January will make their Cannes debuts.

The 18 yachts will span the brand’s five Collections – Atlantis, Magellano, S, Flybridge and Grande – and range in size from the Atlantis 34 to the flagship Azimut Grande 35 Metri, which was premiered at Cannes last year and has already sold at least 10 units.
