The stunning 61metre superyacht ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ built by the prestigious Italian shipyard Benetti Yachts has been launched ahead of her official launch, which is due to take place in a few weeks time. The Lloyd Class built and MCA compliant mega yacht Diamonds Are Forever will join other luxury charter yachts from December 2011.
With her length over all being 60.95 metres and beam of 10.5 metres, Diamonds Are Forever hull number FB 253, offers accommodation to twelve charter guests in two stunning master suites and four guest cabins. The yacht and her guests are taken care by a crew of 15.
Featuring Evan K Marshall interior design, ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ boasts a variety of natural shades including browns, tans, creams and whites and her large windows allow plenty of light to penetrate her interiors.
There are guest and service elevators to all decks, a full beam sky lounge and vast open and shaded deck spaces. A special feature of yacht Diamonds Are Forever is the additional top deck, located above the sun deck, which forms a very private, panoramic deck.
Her touch-and-go helipad found aft on the sun-deck can be easily transformed into a large relaxing area with several lounge chairs.
The 2011 Benetti displacement charter superyacht Diamonds Are Forever was built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure.
Powered by twin Caterpillar 3512C engines she is expected to reach a maximum speed of 16 knots and her range of 5,000 nautical miles is achieved at 12 knots of cruising speed.
