Vittoria Yachts returns to Cannes Yachting Festival with iconic Jetée
Vittoria Yachts is making an enthusiastic return for its second year at the Cannes Yachting Festival,between September 6th and 11th next. This time the team will be welcoming media and visitors at a stylish new 35 sqm stand at Jetée 180, one of the most iconic and busiest locations at the entire event.
Michele Zorzenonand Paolo Duòwill be delighted to meet the media for one-to-one meetings designed specifically to introduce and explore the very yard’s very latest projects in detail as well as to provide updates on the progress of the builds of the Explorer Bow Sprit 54mand theVeloce 35RPH, both designed by Sergio Cutoloof Hydro Tec.
“We are celebrating two years of Vittoria Yachts with an upgraded stand on the iconicJetee, which attracts the busiest footfall along the jetty of one of Europe’s most beautiful ports. We will be announcing news about our many new partners at the event: from design to interiors and technical finishes. Construction on the Veloce and the Bow Sprit is progressing very quickly indeed and their basic fit-out is almost complete so they are ready to make imminent clients very happy indeed. We will also be announcing an alternative layout for the Veloce this year, designed as ever by Hydro Tec and Sergio Cutolo: a beach club opening in the transom to offer owner and guests even more space to enjoy an even closer relationship with the sea, making the onboard living experience truly unforgettable”. Michele Zorzenon, CEO of Vittoria Yachts
The Veloce 32 RPHis a32m custom yacht penned entirely by the Hydro Tec naval architecture and engineering studio for owners that want a yacht built with signature Made in Italy care and craftsmanship to a standard that only a yard with over 100 years of experience in ship-building can guarantee. Importantly, however, it also delivers superbly high performance underway. Construction of the first example will be complete in January 2024.
The 50m Bow SpritExplorer has a large, rugged hull clothed in masculine lines. Also designed by Hydro Tec, the yacht’s two signature characteristics are a 360-degree crow’s nest and a bowsprit (hence the name). The aft section offers an enormous 250 square metres of indoor and outdoor space, including the wonderfully bright main saloon with four full-height windows that create a veranda-like vibe. Although a technical area, the bridge also hasmerchant vessel-style floor-to-ceiling windows. Two pools with panoramic glazing, one on the sun deck and the other aft, both with special effects, complete the Bow Sprit Explorer’s highlights.
“We are proud and delighted to be returning to the Cannes Yachting Festival at a time of such strong growth for Vittoria Yachts, with major orders at the door and plenty of prospects for our future. We are currently working to broaden our offering on the one hand while strengthening our existing one with new solutions capable of meeting owners’ most diverse requirements, on the other. Of course, we continue to focus too on the whole full custom concept, which derives directly from our experience in military and commercial vessels. Anyone can come to us with an idea and we’ll find a way to develop that idea to not just meet but,where possible, surpass their expectations”. Paolo Duò, President of Vittoria Yachts
