BENETTI IS BUILDING a 47m custom superyacht with a displacement steel hull and aluminium superstructure for a repeat client. The motor yacht is scheduled to launch in February 2019 and be delivered in June of the same year.
Benetti’s in-house team are designing the exterior and naval architecture of the new addition to the shipyard’s Custom collection, while Mexican designer Mauricio Gómez de Tuddo – collaborating with Benetti for the first time – is creating the interior.
The motoryacht can sleep up to 12 guests in six cabins, including a full-beam owner’s suite – with a centrally placed bathroom and separate closets – located forward on the main deck.
Fabio Ermetto, Benetti’s CCO, said: “The fact that, yet again, a previous Benetti owner has come back for another yacht is further confirmation that we have worked well in the past and can guarantee quality in the future.
“This sale is a sign of the commercial success that we are currently enjoying, a success that comes from our capacity to listen closely to our client’s needs and from the quality of workmanship that we can count on to make our owner’s dreams come true.”
