Kicking off the start of boat show season, the Cannes Yachting Festival is set in one of the most picturesque places imaginable for an on-water event - the French Riviera. The sunny coast of the Côte d'Azur has magnificent views, hotels, restaurants, nightlife, and of course, luxury boats. Builders from all over the world come to the Cannes Yachting Festival to showcase their latest models and talk about what boats will be making their U.S. premiere in a few months at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. All different types of yachts are on display from luxury motor yachts to yachts for cruising.
The SI Yachts team will be at the boat show this year. To schedule a private showing of a particular yacht builder or model, please email us at Sales@SIYachts.com or call our main office at 1-718-984-7676.

ABSOLUTE YACHTS AT CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL
Absolute is one of the most innovative and exciting builders to come out of Italy. Because the company does not have a corporate board of directors to answer to, they are free to create astonishing and unique yachts that set new standards in luxury cruising. From specialized furniture throughout the exterior spaces that can be rearranged to create the perfect set up, to massive, picture-sized windows that line the main and lower decks, every Absolute model is an icon in its own class.
SI Yachts Featured: Absolute 56 FLY
The new Absolute 56 FLY is the latest model to make its premiere. Called 'The Absolute Charisma', it features everything you'd expect from the Italian shipyard including innovative exterior social spaces, plush interior accommodations, and an abundance of space and light. The full beam master suite is both private and has stellar views through the large windows.

PRESTIGE YACHTS AT CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL
Prestige has produced some very exciting new models in the last few years and has now embarked on a new power catamaran line. The new M48 will make its debut at the Cannes Boat Show and with its Beneatu Group DNA, should immediately carve its niche within the segment. Prestige will have an excellent mix of models at this show thanks to it being in close proximity to the shipyard.
SI Yachts Feautred: Prestige M48
Prestige knows how to build boats that feel like home on the water, so we are very excited to see what they are able to accomplish with a nearly 20-foot beam on the new M48. You cannot compete with the amount of usable space that a power catamaran offers. Combined with the experience that the Beneteau Group has with building catamarans, and this should be a very successful new line for the builder.

The GT series will be positioned between the walk-around range and the Endurance range. Meant to attract the owners that wish to have the performance of the Endurance line, but with more space and volume than the current walk-around models offer.
