Luxury boating enthusiasts from around the planet will converge upon Cannes from September 9 to 14, where the world's most beautiful yachts will be on display to the public. Here is a preview of five star vessels that are bound to make a splash at the event.
The longest yacht at the festival
At 55 meters long, the Ocean Paradise by Benetti will be the most imposing boat in Cannes this year. The vessel is built around four cabins, all with large portholes so that occupants can gaze out at the ocean. Each cabin also has its own private bathroom. Made of steel and aluminum, the yacht has a 'beach club' on the poop deck where passengers can relax. A small garage hidden in the side of the craft holds two jet skis.
