Boat Show : the 2018 appointment
Also in 2018 the appointment with the Genoa Boat Show, which arrives at the 58th edition from 20 to 25 September, after the success of the last edition. In fact, in 2017 the numbers were excellent: 148 thousand visitors, more than 1000 boats, 884 exhibitors, 32 countries represented and 3400 sea trials.The largest exhibition in the Mediterranean offers the appropriate space for the display of each product: from the motor yachts of the top international brands to accessories and components, from boats to the world of outboard engines and water sports.
The presence of 948 brands is confirmed (+ 7.2% compared to 2017), with 62 additional holdings (58% of which from abroad) compared to the 2017 edition and 46 more boats in the water.
Among the novelties of the show, whose slogan is Welcome home, there are the two flagships, motor and sail, of the event: as for the motoryacht, the largest boat is the new 48-meter T-Line of the historic shipyard Baglietto , based in La Spezia.
Built with the steel hull and aluminum superstructures, the T-Line has large living areas that are spread over 350 square meters. It is able to accommodate 12 passengers in the four guest cabins, to which is added, on the main deck, the shipowning one. The yacht can reach a maximum speed of 16 knots and has 4,500 miles from autonomy to 12 knots.
For what concerns the sail, the largest boat is the 24 meters Mylius 80 ‘of the shipyard of Piacenza Mylius Yachts. It is a project by architect Alberto Simeone, built with extensive use of carbon fiber. The deck plan is designed for both the regatta and the cruise.
But the surprises related to the Nautico 2018 also come from other sites. For example from Sanlorenzo, which exhibits two novelties: the Sanlorenzo SL102 and the SX76. The first of the two, thanks to the particular design with the passavanti only on the starboard side of the yacht, a solution that allows you to recover 10 square meters of interior space, represents a revolution: it is in fact the first asymmetrical motoryacht in the world.
Azimut Yachts, on the other hand, exhibits the Azimut S6, the second model of the S generation, a sporty range of the shipyard. It is a pure coupe, endowed with extreme maneuverability. The exterior design is signed by Stefano Righini while the interiors are by Francesco Guida, who has chosen a style characterized by a modern and discreet elegance.
Amer Yachts, of the Permare Group that celebrates 45 years in business, exhibits the new Amer 100 Duchessa, a 29.60 meter motoryacht which, thanks to the four Volvo Penta Ips 1200 engines, can reach a top speed of 29 knots with a cruising speed of 25 knots.
The English shipyard Princess present this year in Genoa presents, among other things, the new V60, able to reach the maximum speed of 38 knots. Among the ecological innovations, the boat created by the Swiss energy multinational Repower. This is RepowerE, the only full electric boat at the show. It can also be recharged through fast charging systems created for the e-car sector.
