Cannes Yachting Festival features various world premieres
Published: Tuesday, 27 June 2017
Evo Yachts, Tecnorib, CMC Marine, Estensi Yachts and Oceanemo are staging their world premieres at the Cannes Yachting Festival (September 12-17).
Italian boat builder Evo Yachts will stage the global debuts of Evo WA and Evo 43’ HT.
The standout feature of the 13.12m Evo WalkAround is the fact that people can move easily between the stern beach area and the bow by walking around the helm station. The day cruiser is equipped with the “XTension” stern sidewalls that can be opened hydraulically in less than 30 seconds by tapping the touchscreen. It can also reach a top speed of 40 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots with two Volvo Penta IPS 600 435hp engines.
Two versions of Evo 43’ HT – one with silver hull and one with blue hull – the latest version of the first model of the shipyard Evo 43’ – will also shine in Cannes. Evo 43’ HT has a state-of-the-art full-carbon T-top. It has all the characteristic features of Evo 43’: customisation, the extendable “XTension” stern sidewalls and the home automation technology.

Tecnorib’s Pirelli 1900 will also have her world premiere in Cannes. The new flagship of the Pirelli fleet is the result of collaboration between Tecnorib and Pirelli. She is 18.5m long, 5m wide and with 16 tonne displacement. Mannerfelt Design Team was responsible for the exteriors, while the interiors were designed by AM Annalisa Martinoni Architettura.
The basic layout features two cabins, two bathrooms and the central living area, containing the galley, a dinette that can be transformed into an additional berth and a dining table. The version in Cannes will have an additional third cabin for the crew. The tender boat can go up to 45 knots with two MAN i6 800ho engines.
Estensi Yachts will present America 380 and Maine 645 for the first time.
America 380 starts from the waterlines design by Zuccheri Yacht Design for 360 GS, renewing them to create a boat that didn’t exist before. The reference is to the American Center Consolle and the sport fisherman of the East Coast of the States. The traditional central deckhouse is replaced by a hardtop with the roll bar inclined towards the bow. She can be used as a day cruiser as well as an exclusive tender for megayachts. She can go up to 32 knots and sleep four people.
Maine 645 is the result of the restyling that Estensi Yachts made on the trawler Maine 640. The new Maine 645 will be presented in Cannes with a completely renewed interior design. Fitted with two Volvo Penta 12V 575hp engines, the 19.8m yacht can go up to 27 knots and have a cruising speed of 14 knots.
Oceanemo 55m will also be premiered in Cannes. The idea of the Sport Utility Yacht was conceived by Aldo Manna and developed by Fulvio De Simoni. She can accommodate a large amount of tenders, water-toys and accessories. She can sleep 12 people and 12 crewmembers on board.
Ferretti Yachts 780 and Ferretti Yachts 920 will also be paraded for the first time in the world at Cannes Yachting Festival. Zuccon International Project’s Bernardo and Martina Zuccon designed both models and will be available for interviews at the boat show.
