Emerald Star and Salvaje were also at the Monaco Yacht Show. Both left Cannes the same day to arrive in Monaco at the same time. It was interesting to follow these two yachts, really different, sailing side by side.

Another big piece made her début in Cannes, Emerald Star, the CRN 43 metres. Strange feeling about this yacht, she looks interesting from some angles of view, and really bulky from other ones... Her volume is really impressive for this size, perfect for the charter, there is no doubt that she will be a success.

I didn't have time to finish my report about the Cannes Boat Show. Just some words about the biggest yacht of the show, Salvaje, the Mangusta 165. Some rumours on the piers say that the owner of Arctic P is waiting for the delivery of this model (maybe the 2nd hull !?). A nice tender!

This year the Port Canto is still dedicated to the brokers. About 40 yachts are displayed. The more interesting one is a conversion from a military boat built by Lürssen in the 60s. Her name is Sea Star, and her length is 44.80 metres. Her refit took place in Turkey.

Maiora is presenting the fourth hull of the 38DP series. Her name is Melina'C. In comparison to her sisters, she features a very modern interior. It was impossible to take decent pictures of her (the same for the Baglietto).

The biggest San Lorenzo, the 40 Alloy, made an appearence off Cannes. The yacht was anchored between the two ports. A revision about her name, it's not "For H" but "4H". Note her butterfly-styled doors for the wheelhouse!

Baglietto is presenting its last 33.45m (Thunderball series). Her name is B-17. She was launched in August.

Couach Yachts is presenting two new series. Kadimo's (see picture) is the first hull of the 3700 Fly series, and Hummingbird the first 3000 Fly. Note that Kadimo's has an interior from Alberto Pinto. It's the first collaboration between the designer and the yard. Couach is also presenting Lady Emma, the second hull of the 3300 series, sister of Tethis.

Another one is making her début in Cannes. It's Fansea, the second hull of the 33m series built by Cyrus Yachts. The first hull is Angel of Joy, who also made her début in Cannes last year. The two yachts are nearly identical, excepting a modification of the layout of the sundeck (the tender is in a garage), a different decoration, and another color of hull.

The brand new Panther is making her début in Cannes. This yacht was built by Mondomarine, and launched earlier this year. Her profile is really innovative. Interesting detail, she flies a Greek flag.

Here is a little preview about the "Festival de la Plaisance" of Cannes. The show opened its doors on Wednesday 12, and will close them Monday night. On the picture you can see some recent launches like Panther, Fansea, Waverunner, Marabha, and also some older ones like Gaja and Choo Choo.
