La veloce vita

Ferretti’s 860 was quick to transition from concept to launch, but how does she stack up in the real world? We step aboard in Cannes and take her for a spin to find out.

Cruising with purpose

There’s a quiet revolution happening on yachts and superyachts all over the world as owners and crew think about how they can give back to remote peoples when visiting far-flung destinations – and it’s something we can all get involved in.

Jewel in the crown

The Yacht Sales Co. and Multihull Solutions team will be holding inspections at the 2023 Cannes Yachting Festival, with the jewel in their crown set to be Fountaine Pajot’s new flagship superyacht, the NEW 80.

Open season

Reminiscent of Riviera’s classic open flybridge models but with all the mod cons, the 46 Sports Motor Yacht is perfect for cruising, fishing and taking in the sea breeze from the flybridge; no ladder into the cockpit in sight.

Samba spirit

Schaefer, South America’s biggest motor yacht builder, has sashayed into the Australian market with a range of innovative models, including the 510 GTS. On a Sydney Harbour trial, Scott Alle finds the newcomer packed with attractive features and more than a little bit of fun.

Punching above her weight

With her attractive volume and even more attractive price tag, Gulf Craft’s Majesty 120 is a lot of boat for your money. And, with the yard upping the build and finish quality and quickly catching up with competitors, the 120 should definitely be on your shortlist.

Voodoo charm

What’s the best way to get your new boat from New Zealand to Sydney? Via New Caledonia, of course, with the people who built her as crew. But for Mal, the new owner of the Voodoo XF60 Phoebe, it was more than just a delivery – it was a trip of a lifetime, and the perfect way to learn the yacht’s capabilities.

Cannes 2023 preview

For over 45 years, Europe’s largest in-water show, the Cannes Yachting Festival, has been the first major international event of the season. In 2023, the festival will return to the French Riviera from 12 to 17 September.

Successful scuola

The first edition of Ferretti Group’s Scuola dei Mestieri (School of Trades) training course, which aims to prepare young people to become skilled workers in the yachting industry, has proved a great success.
