Sanlorenzo SX100

Sanlorenzo SX100 (30.5 m, Sanlorenzo, Italy)

It is impossible to describe Sanlorenzo yachts by providing a dry list of their features and advantages, as to be able to appreciate their fantastic design and non-standard approach to interior space layout you simply must see them. In September 2023 in Cannes there was a premiere of their supersecret crossover SX100. The yacht can accommodate 8 guests in a luxurious master suite, a VIP cabin and two guest cabins. The main saloon has a spectacular floor-to-ceiling glazing. The multifunctional aft area can serve as a beach club or as a place to store water toys and a large 5.65 m tender. Four Volvo Penta engines provide a cruising speed of 20 knots and a top speed of 23.

Bluegame BGM75 (22.7 m, Bluegame, Italy)

The Italian Bluegame brand, which is also part of Sanlorenzo Group, presented a new model of theirs in Cannes, too: the BGM75. The first boat in the new multihull BGM range, the BGM75 boasts enhanced stability both when anchored and underway, larger space on board and reduced fuel consumption. Thanks to the two connected hulls BGM75 offers a full beam owner's cabin of extraordinary dimensions, an ample saloon and a spacious aft beach area. But, according to the shipyard, BGM75 is not a classic multihull, as this innovative boat is a lot less "boxy" than ordinary catamarans. You can find more details about it here

Sirena 48 (15.96 m, Sirena Yachts, Тurkey)

The Turkish shipyard Sirena Yachts presented their smallest model to date with a semi-displacement hull. No matter how small it is, its capabilities are huge: the cruising speed is 15-16 knots, and at the economical cruising speed of 10 knots the expected range is 520 nm. The top speed the boat can reach is 27 knots. There is an ample swimming platform to carry a tender and other water toys. One can choose out of three alternative interiors, install an optional hardtop over the flybridge and solar panels. No wonder that even before the world premiere the shipyard had already sold 18 hulls.

Wallywhy 150 (24 m, Wally, Italy)

At the heart of the concept behind the Wallywhy 150 there is ample open deck space and a raised pilothouse. The shipyard positions this extraordinarily looking crossover as an ideal vessel “for experienced owners who fully understand and appreciate the skillful use of space, the considerable living areas and its unmistakable personality”. One should note that during nearly 30 years of designing and building cutting-edge aggressive style yachts, there have been some dramatic changes, and the Italian shipyard is directly related to it.

80 Sunreef Power Eco (23.8 m, Sunreef Yachts, Poland)

The Polish catamarans manufacturer presented their 80 Sunreef Power Eco that is almost 24 meters long. The shipyard dubbed it “the world’s most advanced electric motor yacht”. It is the first in a new generation of eco-catamarans, equipped with two 180 kW engines each and a set of ultralight batteries of 440 kWh. The surface of the yacht – both the hull and the superstructure – are outfitted with the brand’s innovative solar power skin of about 200 square metres. A high level of customization suggests a variety of layouts, including the master suite location on the main deck.

Silent 62 3-Deck (18.86 m, Silent Yachts, Austria)

Another Cannes debut is from the innovative Austrian shipyard Silent Yachts with their new flagship the Silent 62 3-Deck solar electric catamaran. It is the brand’s first ever triple-deck yacht, developed on the basis of the popular Silent 60 model, but it is about 50 sq.m larger thanks to a fully equipped upper deck. There are numerous layout options for this version, but at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023 they showed the one with an open sky lounge. However, there can also be a saloon or even a master suite instead. According to the shipyard, Silent 62 3-Deck can travel up to 100 miles a day on solar energy only, thanks to the solar batteries of 17 kWp.

Vespro (16.7 m, Centounonavi, Italy)

Innovative both from the technical and design point of view, this cruiser can develop speed up to 56 knots with a range of 350 nautical miles, and at the cruising speed of 50 knots it’ll consume just 8 liters of fuel per nm. It is a classic Mediterranean open boat featuring modern solutions: for example, the windshield can be retracted into the hardtop. On the lower deck there are two exquisitely decorated cabins, two bathrooms and a large saloon with a galley.

Evo R+ (18 m, Evo Yachts, Italy)

Pershing GTX 116 (35.2 m, Pershing Yachts, Italy)

The world premiere of this new sport model took place in Cannes, although due to its size, the GTX 116 was also shown at the Monaco Yacht Show 2023. At both shows one could see the first hull ordered by a US customer to be used in Florida, although at the end of July 2023 the yard launched which confirms the impression the boat made on its potential customers. The appearance of the yacht literally screams about her sport capabilities, while at the same time there is no shortage of comfort onboard, with an almost 40 sq m beach club, connected with a power hydraulic swim platform.

Arcadia A96 (29 m, Arcadia Yachts, Italy)

The interior design of this 29 m long boat was developed by Igor Lobanov, who had thought of a variety of layouts. There can be 5 cabins for 10 guests and the quarters for the crew of 5. The yacht boasts large openable glazed surfaces and a shallow draft, which means that A96 can cruise in almost any waters. The propulsion system of four Volvo Penta IPS1.200 (1.350 as an option) engines allow one to optimise the living spaces, offer excellent maneuverability, low level of noise and vibration and reduced fuel consumption.
