Benetti launch new 50m motor yacht VICA (FB801)

March 18, 2015

The sculptural and flexible qualities of aluminium lend themselves to client customisation. It is a decidedly Mediterranean vessel featuring spacious exteriors, large decks both to the bow and stern of the upper deck, as well as an enormous sun deck. Luxury yacht Vica ensures “comfortable” hull performance (practically vibration free and silent) thanks to a special elastic connection between the engines and prop shaft.

The exteriors of super yacht Vica have large full-height windows and also three removable panels – a unique VICA feature. The first panel is astern and on the side for hauling in and launching the tender; the second is at the swimming platform; and the third is at the lower deck, enabling the lobby – usually a closed space – to be opened up. In addition – unusual for a boat of this size – the retractable stair that leads down to the water, exclusively for the boat owner’s personal use.

The interior layout of Vica superyacht includes four guest cabins on the lower deck, the boat owner suite towards the bow on the main deck, and an additional cabin on the upper deck. The 12-member crew shares 6 cabins on the lower deck. The interiors were designed for a home-like feel, except for the foyer with its impressive wrought iron stair. Cherry is used throughout in both glossy and satin finishes (for the cabins) with rosewood detailing. The lighting design is quite evocative, featuring LEDs and an alabaster column lit from the inside using white point dynamic brightness controls.

Launch of new 56m motor yacht SURPINA (FB267) by Benetti

March 18, 2015

The all-new motor yacht Surpina (FB267) has successfully hit the water at the Benetti shipyard in Italy. Due to be delivered later this month, superyacht Surpina is a beautiful 56-metre vessel, boasting an instantly striking profile.

The aesthetic impact of the exteriors is the direct result of the luxury yacht Surpina owner’s functional requirements. Unlike most Benetti yachts of this size, the stern areas of the main and upper decks are not open. Instead, they are glazed with large windows that hide the main deck living area and the upper deck gym adjacent to the boat owner suite.

The interiors of super yacht Surpina are classic Italian. The layout includes seven guest cabins plus the boat owner suite. The atmosphere is warm without being heavy, with wood contrasting with white carpet and marble, for an intimate and relaxing environment. Foremost among the materials is the elm root paneling with mahogany, walnut, and rosewood detailing. One of the yacht’s hallmarks is the “precious” period furniture requested by the boat owner – each piece with its own history and a celebration of Italian craftsmanship.

New 63m motor yacht FB264 launched by Benetti

March 18, 2015

The brand new motor yacht FB264 has been recently launched by the prominent Italian shipyard Benetti in Livorno. Luxury mega yacht FB 264 by Benetti is an impressive 63,5-metre steel and aluminium vessel, designed to be 100% custom and exclusively for private use.

63m Benetti superyacht FB264 at launch

Superyacht FB264 by Benetti is designed as an honest to goodness “home on the sea” starting with the internal layout: apart from the saloon on the main deck there are no large common spaces but rather small, intimate ones. Only the finest materials are used – such as a Galuchat headboard.

The simplicity of the intimate spaces aboard Benetti FB264 yacht is offset by the extreme complexity of the workmanship. There are many metal inlays, transparent glass drawers, and other elements that required highly sophisticated woodworking skills, a complex undertaking even for the expert craftsman at the shipyard.

The Displacement to Planing (D2P) hull itself is particularly notable for its energy saving and comfort enhancing properties, and was designed by Pierluigi Ausonio Naval Architecture Studio in conjunction with the Azimut|Benetti Research and Development Center. Luxury yacht Veloce 140’ features exterior design by Stefano Righini whilst RWD-Redman Whiteley Dixon was responsible for her luxurious interiors in cooperation with the owner’s personal designer.

Inside, her living areas are highly customised, with the shipyard offering new owners the opportunity to alter the layout of the standard design according to their own personal requirements. Throughout, a range of high quality materials are used, including light gray Tay wood, and slate gray Tabu for the flooring. The decorative elements are in a silver lacquer finish, with the ceilings in alcantara and a white lacquer finish. In addition, all stainless steel features come with a satin finish, contributing to the collective ambiance of sophistication, elegance and luxury. The interior furnishings are by Minotti, the lamps by Flos and the taps and fittings by Gessi.

Amongst her many features and amenities is a luxurious cockpit in which comes with a daybed that quickly and efficiently converts into an area for relaxation. Furthermore is a large gym containing all of the latest equipment from the Technogym Personal line, which dominates the bridge area on the main deck. Designed at the owner’s request and placed in the bow of the vessel, the area includes a massage area and exploits the full width of the hull, creating a spacious environment to work out.

A particularly exciting feature of the gym is a side terrace, providing excellent views as well as a perfect place to rewind and cool down. In addition, the terrace also provides the gym with an abundance of natural light and ventilation.

Elsewhere on the main deck the salon and dining area can be found. The impressively commodious space also extends into the yacht’s outdoor areas, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor environment for guests to fully take advantage of. The whole space is elegantly decorated, and surrounded by large windows, once again heightening the amount of natural light in the room and creating a welcoming, warm environment.

The dining table seats up to 12 guests, whilst the two plush sofas in addition to the two white, leather armchairs in the salon provide ample seating even for company.

In terms of her accommodation, guests are welcomed into one of five ample, opulent cabins, each located on the lower deck. The dedicated owner’s suite includes a spacious, en suite bathroom as well as plenty of storage space. The remaining guests cabins include two doubles and two twin room, as well as additional Pullman Berths. All are consistently decorated in the same neutral and sophisticated colour scheme, creating an ideal environment to relax and unwind. A crew of up to eight are also accommodated on the lower deck over four crew cabins at the far end of the bow.

The lower deck also features an extensive beach club area, which is accessed by a double flight of steps and equipped with a central bar counter running the length of the bulkhead. The garage is placed transversely to the beam, and can comfortably accommodate up to two tenders.

Moving on to her outside areas, one of the most impressive spaces is the extensive sun deck, covering more than 77 square metres in total. Dominating the space is a centrally placed swimming pool, the first of two large swimming pools found on the yacht. The sun deck pool faces an extended living section on the right of the yacht which is served by a long linear bar on the left.

Her upper deck has not been designed with the traditional fixed furniture found elsewhere on the yacht, and in fact, everything has the ability to be moved or removed with relative ease. This ensures the owner is able to obtain a large circular area that extends outdoors and indoors, offering the perfect environment for entertainment and socialising. Astern, there is another large, luxurious dining table seating sixteen guests in total. Here there is also a relaxation area leading to an internal sky-lounge through electric concertina doors. This provides is a large open plan area that is partly air-conditioned.

At the bow stands the yacht’s second spectacular swimming pool, featuring an exceptional depth as well as a whirlpool. Opposite, there are two large sunbeds and a living area with a sofa and coffee table, offering total privacy and an area to enjoy life on board to the fullest. On this bridge where the captain’s cabin would usually be located in the original design, the owner has requested a conversion into an additional luxury bedroom.

Powered by twin MTU 12V 4000 M93L 3500 mhp engines, super yacht Veloce 140’ has a top speed of 22 knots and a range of 1,250 nm at a cruising speed of 12 knots and is also equipped with a system of CMC Marine electrical fin stabilisers. The size of the engines are somewhat of a landmark for the Benetti shipyard in Viareggio, marking the largest engines that have ever been mounted at the facility.
