5 “midsize” innovations to see at the shows: Oceanis, Hanse, Bali, Dufour and Elan

The boat shows are getting closer, with the Cannes Yachting Festival scheduled for Sept. 12-16 and the Genoa Boat Show from Sept. 21-26. As always, the Sailing Newspaper will tell you, live from the docks of the two most important boat shows in the Mediterranean, all the news and current trends in sailing.

As we wait for the boat show season to get into full swing, let’s take a look at 5 new boats coming to market: the Oceanis 37.1, the Hanse 410, the Elan Impression 43, the Dufour 41 and the Bali Cat Smart. Pure cruising boats, suitable for families and charters, perfect for summer vacations if we want to live aboard pampered by maximum comfort.
