Her sleek silhouette was designed by the Benetti shipyard, while Dutch designer Cor D. Rover produced the elegant exterior and the interior was completed by AREA of Los Angeles in collaboration with the Benetti design team.

The steel hull and aluminium superstructure were built for an experienced superyacht owner commissioning from the Benetti shipyard for the first time.

As the name SEASENSE suggests, the owner wanted a design focused on as much contact with the marine environment as possible, and the prioritisation of exterior space over interiors is reflected in the design: The main deck aft features a large pool and a sun lounging area that joins onto a main salon that uses sliding glass doors to expose the interior to the best of the local climate.
