Sacs Technorib – Pirelli 30 and Rebel 50 Sacs: World Premiere
At the Cannes Yachting Festival, Sacs Tecnorib debuts with the new Pirelli 30 for the first time in the water. The boat show will also be an opportunity to see for the first time the full Pirelli-branded walkaround speedboats line (30, 35, 42 and 50) designed by the refined pencil of Ted Mannerfelt, with planing hulls conceived by the legendary designer of the motorboating world Ocke Mannerfelt.

Apreamare Gozzo 35 Speedster: World premiere
Apreamare will present the new Gozzo 35 Speedster, an innovative outboard version of the Gozzo 35 with a black livery. This model aims to combine the timeless style of the typical gozzo from Sorrento, coupled with the sportiness and high performance of a fast-cruiser.
Designed by Marco Casali and Umberto Tagliavini, the iconic Gozzo boasts an 800 hp engine, designed for those owners who prefer the practicality, lightness and power of outboard engines, without sacrificing the tradition and the typical Apreamare style.

Lomac Turismo 9.5 e Gran Turismo 14.0: World premiere
The upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival is a great opportunity for Lomac Milano to show two exclusive new boats designed by the talented Federico Fiorentino: the Turismo 9.5, big sister to the 7.0 that marked the start of the industrial process to renew the Turismo range, and the latest upgrade of Lomac’s maxi-RIB flagship, the GranTurismo 14.0.
The Turismo 9.5 preserves and accents its predecessor’s heavy-duty military look, showcasing a particularly aggressive and sleek design as well as offering spacious areas on board.
The new GranTurismo 14.0, the flagship of Lomac’s most exclusive family of boats, also has a new layout to deliver even more liveability thanks to a generous cockpit and two side passages to optimise movements onboard so ensure maximum comfort as befits a maxi rib of this size.
Besenzoni New Oceano Series
Besenzoni has developed a new range of ladders/platforms made of AISI steel called Oceano: currently including 3 models (LP100 Plus, LP200 e LP300), but it is always evolving and expanding.
Their main function is obviously as a bathing ladder or from boarding/disembarking as well as to ensure an even easier and safer boarding. They can also be used both as an extension of the beach area and as a convenient tender lift platform.
The installation of these multifunctional ladders/platforms, totally tailor-made according to the yacht's characteristics, allows to benefit from an additional space at the stern that can be exploited in many ways.
Pearl Yachts will be at the Cannes Yachting Festival with a 3-yacht fleet: the new stunning Pearl 72, the multi-award winner Pearl 62 and the flagship Pearl 95. Founded in 1998 with the aim of designing a range of luxury motor yachts offering voluminous interiors, combined with opulence and design excellence, Pearl Yachts is now one of the UK’s most prominent shipyards.
