This year, our team returned from the Cannes boat show well inspired by new trends in sailing and motor yachting.

In the exclusive ambience of the Cote d'Azur we had a closer look at the most popular and beloved yacht models among our clients and at the new introductions of the main yacht builders.

If you are thinking of buying a yacht or a motor boat, chartering a sailing yacht for your holidays or maybe a luxury motor yacht for your once-in-a-lifetime exclusive holiday trip, here is our small personal summary of the most important trends in yachting:

 For sailing yachts:

- larger and more optimized deck and cockpit areas on yachts of middle size (37 - 45 feet)
- increased cruising speed by means of hull restructure. The innovation of Jeanneau are the so calles crimes - better speed results can be reached by means of a minimal hull restructure while keeping the normal size and weight of the boat at the same time
- double steering wheels on small yachts (up to 40 feet)
- cabin transformation possibilities
- deck saloon yachts lose their popularity
- big (sun)bathing platforms on stern of all Beneteau models
- automatic 360° manoeuvring system - the new invention of Jeanneau - now is available on new Jeanneau models and is called 360 docking system
