Italian builder Azimut Yachts will debut three yachts at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September: the 50 Fly, 77S (above) and Grande 95RPH.

The Grande 95RPH — a raised pilothouse yacht — is the first model in the new “Grande Collection.” Features include a 60-square-meter flybridge and a layout that provides four VIP cabins in addition to the owner’s suite, the company said in a statement.

The Azimut 77S rides a wave-piercing hull and includes a pivoting stern platform, a large one-piece deckhouse window and triple Volvo Penta IPS pod drives. Four prelaunch sales have been made on this yacht, according to Azimut.

The 50 Fly features mirrored deckhouse windows, ample space in the bow and the classic vertical windows in the hull that take inspiration from the Azimut 80, according to the company. The owner’s suite is amidships, and the VIP cabin is forward. There also is a third guest cabin.

The Cannes Yachting Festival runs Sept. 9-14. The boat show takes place at three venues along the Croisette in Cannes, France.
