Five Standouts From The Venice Boat Show

What better setting than Venice for a boat show?

By Michael Verdon 07/06/2021

Venice and boats in the same sentence tend to convey images of gondolas, narrow channels and the Grand Canal. This week, as the second edition of the Salone Nautico of Venice wraps up, was all about modern yachts and sailing vessels—more than 220 from over 160 exhibitors, lining the channels of Venice’s Arsenale.

Robb Report attended opening day of the event—which included aerial acrobatics by six jets in the Frecce Tricolori, the Italian Air Force’s equivalent of the Blue Angels, along with visits by the country’s leading politicians. And, of course, masked crowds just happy to be at a live boat show. Amongst all this activity were yachts actually worthy of being in such a beautiful, historic setting. Here are our five favourites.
