Walking around Cannes Yatching Festival, a keen observer might have spotted Nauta Designs in a number of yachts.
Since turning from production into design and brokerage, Nauta has focused on interiors and exterior styling of custom sailing and power yachts, and are on the cutting edge of international design.
Nauta Design has had a big presence at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival with new yachts from some recognisable builders featuring Nauta Designs.
These include Beneteau, Lagoon, Grand Soleil and Southern wind.
Beneteau, one of the more prominent boat builders in the world for production series yachts, featured the new Oceanis 51.1 with deck and interior design by Nauta. The stunning yacht was a world premiere in Cannes.
Lagoon introduced the flagship of their motor yacht fleet, the Seventy8. This 23m catamaran has 11m max beam, and is an evolution of the sailing catamaran Seventy7, designed with Marc Van Peteghem and Patrick Le Quément.
Its interior features Nauta Design, who have created the perfect link between interior and exterior by focusing on the main passages from the saloon to the rear cockpit, and from the owner’s lounge to the forward cockpit.
For Grand Soleil / Cantiere del Pardo, the new Grand Soleil 52 LC, the larger model of the elegant Long Cruise range, and the Grand Soleil 58, the yard’s flagship, features deck and interior designs by Nauta, as well as naval architecture by Marco Lostuzzi (GS52LC) and Felci Yachts (GS58) respectively.
At Southern Wind Shipyard, the SW102 Crossbow, the 5th unit of the SW102 series, with general concept, deck and interior designed by Nauta Design and naval architecture by Farr Yacht Design.
Crossbow has an owner forward layout with a VIP and guest cabin amidships and crew quarters aft. The interior style is pared down and modern with light colours and plenty of light for a relaxed atmosphere on board.
