At this juncture between summer and winter, Autumn takes on a transitional feel; the evenings are becoming darker, the mornings cooler, and the Mediterranean ports start to lose their yachts to the Caribbean, bringing to a close the summer season.

That the approach to the end of the year may sometimes feel like a slowing down, it has become tradition to 'go out with a bang', the Mediterranean yachting season culminating in two of the most important, and busy, yacht shows on the international calendar - The Cannes Yachting Festival, and the Monaco Yacht Show.

Right on the doorstep of Princess Yachts Monaco, The Cannes Yachting Festival saw the launch of the brand new Princess 62, an apt celebration for the 40th year anniversary of the Festival.

Showcased also was the stunning special-edition Bentley Continental GT V8 Galene, designed by Mulliner, inspired by the soft lines of Princess Yachts. This beautiful car was in prime position, and perfectly complimented the row of V, S, and M Class Princess Yachts.

Packing a punch and showing how the Princess shipyard can quite comfortably sit alongside the global powerhouses of yards such as Lurssen and Feadship, the newly launched Princess 35M M Class, M/Y WHITE DREAM, and 75MY ENIGMA, were proudly on display at the Monaco Yacht Show.

Arguably the most important show of its kind in the world, and on the doorstep of Princess Yachts Monaco, a raft of impressed visitors toured both boats on display, noting the incredible luxury of the Princess 35M.
