Making the most…

“Cannes Festival of Yachting 2019 didn’t disappoint once again, who doesn’t want to be in the South of France in September! Unfortunately, the first day was torrential rain but I was flat out the majority of the day with determined Aussies making the most of their trip to Cannes.

The Lagoon 46 was very well received, as with the stunning 50. The McConaghy 50 was also a show stopper with many people wanting the combination of luxury and speed.

SIXTY 7 Debut

The debut of the Sixty 7– a smaller Seventy8!! I was really impressed with the level of detail in this new model. It is obvious The team from Lagoon have sat down and studied every area to ensure it is ergonomic and practical.

The nice thing about the Sixty 7 which was the same comments made by several of our clients that attended the show is they don’t feel intimidated to operate the boat themselves.

Lagoon has a sure winner with this model and can not wait to see one cruising in Australian waters soon.” Rowan McMahon

Festival of fun

“The Cannes Show as always delivered an opportunity to meet owners new and old across our sparking brands.  The new Lagoon 46 was a standout for those looking to cruise into the blue beyond on an adventure of a lifetime.  We look forward to working to turning these commitments into a reality in the seasons to come.

The Cannes Show is special in many ways and we do our best to ensure our visitors are looked after in every regard.  So make a date in your diary and join us in the French Riviera for a festival of boating and fun this time next year…

Speed and style

The new Sixty7 motor yacht with speed, range and a refined style was a top of the list for many of you considering this form of luxury afloat.  A mini Seventy8 with all of the winning features Australians have embraced is an absolute winner and takes over the mantle from the very popular 630MY with notable inclusions and features we can’t wait to share with you.”
