Marco Valle, CEO of the Azimut-Benetti Group, told: “We had a very successful Cannes show with Benetti signing seven new contracts. It was also very good for Azimut, particularly at the larger end above 70ft. The lower end saw fewer orders and I think we will see a slowing down in the smaller end of the market. There wiĺl be some chaĺlenging times ahead.”
The growing demand for electric yachts on Cannes yachting festival
As to Sunreef Yachts, its sales team concluded eight new-build contracts which comprised two Sunreef 60 Ecos; two Sunreef Power Ecos, one 60 Sunreef Power Eco and three Sunreef 60 sail catamarans.
Francis Lapp, founder and president of Sunreef Yachts, said: “Twenty years ago, Sunreef Yachts sparked change in the industry by introducing a new kind of yacht – the luxury catamaran. Today, the innovation continues as the shipyard navigates yachts towards new levels of sustainability, safety, beauty and luxury.”
“The growing demand for electric yachts that we have noticed over the Cannes show gives us the energy to move forward in the right direction, the one of responsible yachting.”
Sunreef hopes to announce a major new order at the Monaco Yacht Show which could be the largest, or among the largest, multihulls ordered to date.
