Our editors had to make the trip to Cannes to see the new 870, and it was well worth it. The 870 is the first model in the group’s “Big Craft” range, and it exemplifies Ferretti’s emphasis on luxury, design, and performance. The lines are sharp and graceful, while large windows have been built into the sides of the master and the two guest cabins to provide extraordinary natural light. A pair of 12V MTUs produce a top speed of 30-plus knots.
To showcase its Prestige line of motoryachts and express cruisers, French boatbuilder Jeanneau welcomes select guests to its impressive factory in Les Herbiers in western France. Prospective boat buyers, dealers, and a few lucky journalists got a glimpse of the entire boatbuilding process from the design and engineering studios to the yard where the boats are loaded for truck delivery. Oh and there was a really nice lunch with a little champagne as well!
