«Fast And Furious» at The Cannes Yachting Festival

«Fast And Furious» at The Cannes Yachting Festival

The Cannes Yachting Festival is a major event in the international yachting world and is the setting for some real technological and mechanical gems.

From 6 to 11 September, in the Bay of Cannes, 400 motor boats will be presented berthed in the Old Port, some of them as world premieres. Among them are some of the most beautiful Formula 1s of the seas: sporty lines, bold style, powerful engine, optimal sailing pleasure... Here is a selection of muscular «day- boats» to discover at the 2022 edition:

ASCHENEZ SRL - Invictus GT 320 S

Conceived by the designer Christian Grande, the GT 320 S retains its modern and uncluttered style but with a sporty engine: 42 knots top speed and a cruising speed close to 26 knots. The fibreglass hull is fitted with a superb carbon fibre hard top that is particularly effective on sunny days. This option is in addition to the customisation possibilities offered by the Italian shipyard, such as the hull colour (vanilla, dark wood, metallic grey, white, etc.), the teak deck and the leather fenders with Invictus logo.

With a re-styling by Giuseppe Bagnardi of the Rome- based design studio BG, the new look of the OTAM 58 GTS accentuates its sporty character and strengthens its style while respecting the boatyard’s DNA. Powered by twin 1825hp MTU engines coupled with ASD14 Arneson surface drive, it has a top speed of over 55 knots and cruises comfortably at 48 knots. It also offers a more aerodynamic profile that reduces turbulence to ensure better performance and more comfort aboard at very high speeds.

The all-new Frauscher 1212 Ghost is the result of years of development and incorporates many of the features of the brand’s smaller powerboats.

LOMAC NAUTICA – GranTurismo 10.5
Monohull motorboat l Measurements: LOA 10.60 m and beam 3.51 m l Built in Italy

The GranTurismo 10.5 joins the family of Lomac’s top-of-the- range boats. It features an all-new high-performance hull with a deep V running from bow to stern that allows for smoother sailing in rough seas and better performance in terms of speed and reduced fuel consumption, even at low and medium speeds. Its top speed is 55 knots, attained thanks to a pair of Yamaha F350 outboards. It is equipped with two powerful Yamaha V6 outboard engines, each with 300 horsepower. All boats in the GranTurismo range are designed to offer the ideal combination of design, comfort and performance, targeting customers who want sporty performance but are not prepared to sacrifice comfort, practicality and safety.

Monohull motorboat l Measurements: LOA 13 m and beam 4.55 m l Built in Italy

The Italian boatyard is back at the Cannes Yachting Festival with its latest project, Evo R4XT, a walkaround born from the collaboration between Valerio Rivellini and Besenzoni, who created a fully customised aft platform for this model, designed to give the 13-metre yacht a new look and - for its guests - a new way of experiencing the sea. This model is the only sporty walkaround in the world with a maximum speed of 38 knots to be equipped with a multifunctional aft platform: a simple operation and 30 seconds are enough to open the XTensions hydraulic bulkheads and transform the beach area into a 270 square foot terrace with a convertible tender lift, similar to a diving board.
