Cannes Yachting Festival: Two new models from Cantieri estensi will make their international debut 


At the Cannes Yachting Festival next September 2016, Cantieri Estensi is debuting the shipyard’s two new models: 535 Maine and 545 GS. Attending its first edition of this international boat show after the change of ownership, the shipyard presents a comprehensive image makeover, new management and, most importantly, two brand new models, both launched in summer 2016.


The new 535 Maine is a 17-meter trawler that offers plenty of space for socialising, not least the roomy outdoor dinette in the stern cockpit and the flybridge designed to provide guests with comfort and relaxation at any time of day. Inspired by traditional lobster boats, the 17-meter Goldstar 545 retains all their distinctive style features, from the shape of the superstructure to the elegant varieties of wood used for the deck.


For both models, the shipyard and designer Zuccheri Yacht Design have joined forces to propose alternative interior layouts offering across-the-board customisation in terms of the varieties of wood used for the furniture and the fabrics. The technical partnership with Volvo Penta brings all the benefits of electronic navigation aids to both yachts, while the innovative technology fitted onboard ensures that both cruising and stopovers are safer, more comfortable and more fun than ever.

At the Cannes Yachting Festival, visits on board 535 Maine and 545 Goldstar and sea trials will be available for both press and public.

Cantieri Estensi

Established in Ferrara in 1996, Cantieri Estensi builds motor-powered pleasure craft from 10 to 20 meters  characterized by a distinct classic style. The range of thirteen models is divided into the Maine and Goldstar lines. Maine is the range of semi displacement trawlers that are ideal for long, relaxing cruises in total comfort, while the Goldstar range draws inspiration from the roomy lobster boats used in the Southern United States. In 2015, the shipyard was acquired by the Garlini family, who have set a radical product restyling process in motion, with a view to re-launching the brand on international markets.
