The lower deck swim platform becomes a beach club with a sun lounger to both sides creating a space to rest beside the water. On the main deck, there is an abundance of space for hosting large tenders and motorised water toys. A Davit crane provides quick and safe launch and retrieval.

On the upper deck aft, there is a large alfresco dining area in the shade to serve up to 12. Along the stern, two sofas, armchairs and coffee tables create a symmetrical setting where the group can converse in the sunshine and take in the spectacular views.

The bridge deck aft also uses a mirror layout for the alfresco lounge, with two corner sofas, an armchair and a coffee table.

A final alfresco guest space can be found on the sundeck, where a forward Jacuzzi and sunpads take in panoramic views of the destination. Sun loungers are placed aft to port with a seating area to starboard of the communications mast.

INTERIOR

Inside, classic styling and traditional wood panelling are combined with fabrics offering a fresh burst of colour with cream accents.
The lower deck layout places the engine room to the aft with the two twin cabins in front. Forward, there is the crew mess, amenities and crew cabins.

On the main deck, the forward section hosts the double cabins side-by-side and a twin cabin behind to starboard. Behind there is the galley and main foyer staircase with the formal dining area and lounge to the aft. The dining table seats up to 12 guests in timeless surroundings, while the intimate lounge creates an ambient environment using a curving sofa and aft-facing sofa, armchairs and a pair of coffee tables, where guests can unwind in style after exploring warm waters or cold climates.

The upper deck hosts the Master suite forward with a salon behind that can be shared with other guests or put to private use. The salon has a symmetrical layout with both walls fitted with an L-shaped sofa, a nest of tables, coffee tables and stools.

Quick Enquiry

Positive Customer Review: "One of the most memorable parts for me was the launch. I went with my wife, and Benetti had a Roman Catholic priest bless the yacht. It was very beautiful with all the Italian music and then the British national anthem, and it was all very unexpected. I thought I was just going to be putting the boat in the water, but in fact it turned into a very emotional day!" - Owner of a Benetti called motor yacht 11:11
