bee 46The week of the Cannes Boat Show has kicked off with its 972 exhibitors and an energy that every year manages to involve more and more enthusiasts and yards, drawn to the pearl of the French Riviera. After presenting you with this season’s trends, during our first round we went to unearth the new products previewed at the Salon of which we provide you with a first small taste. Beneteau, in celebration of the shipyard’s 130th anniversary, is not content with one but presents two new entries coloring its presence blue and orange. After a few years of fasting, the French shipyard is back on big sizes in its queen range by launching the new Beneteau Oceanis 60, which seduced us with a truly prestigious Nauta-designed interior, a huge garage for the tender, and conveniences of all kinds in the cockpit.

Dufour presents its new 382 Grand Large leaving us waiting to see in the water the already announced 350 Grand Large that will be positioned “in scale,” between the 382 and 310. The 382 GL is distinguished by the possibility of choosing as many as six different interior layout designs going from a version more suitable for charters to one ideal for a couple with children aiming for a hull that is small in size and easy to carry.
