The Winner of the Cannes Film festival: La Vie d’Adele (Blue is the Warmest Colour). Our Yacht Winner – Black and White!

La Vie d'AdeleThe winner of the 66th Cannes Film Festival is La Vie d’Adele (Blue is the Warmest Colour). The most coveted prize in film after the Oscars went to this three hour emotional tale of love and sexuality by Abdellatif Kechiche that centers on a 15 year old girl (Adele Exarchopoulos) and her lover (Lea Seydoux) and is the first time in the festivals history that the Palm d”Or has gone to a French film in two consecutive years. It is also notable that this steamy lesbian epic has won the highest award on the day when hundreds of thousands of demonstrators marched in Paris on Sunday to protest France's recent legalization of same-sex marriage.

However, it is obviously the yachts that are most important here.  Our team here at Boatbookings choose a yacht for every film, yet what were our winners? Which yacht got our Palm d'Or?
After some intense debate, we narrowed the field down to just three yachts. WILD THYME, BLACK AND WHITE and CALLISTO. Chosen for their gorgeous lines, high performance and supreme luxury, they would provide any guests with a charter of a lifetime, yet which one would edge the other out to win Boatbookings Palm d'Or?
And the winner for Best Yacht in the Cannes Film Festival is…..
BLACK AND WHITE as it was ended up sweeping away the field and taking the prize as our favorite yacht from this series of Black and Whiteblogs marking each day of the Cannes Film festival. Her gorgeous lines, immaculate and luxurious interior, fantastic outdoor spaces for sunbathing or al fresco dining and superb crew propelled her to victory.
