Both the interior and exterior styling comes from the shipyard in-house team, with Imperial acting as the Owner’s representative and supervisor throughout the build. Her notable amenities include a large swimming pool, helipad and spa, plus a wide array of water toys suited to cruising grounds the world over.
Mega yacht LANA underwent rigorous testing at the yard in Livorno during the lockdown, with complex equipment testing carried out under remote supervision by the manufacturers, based in Norway, Sweden and the UK respectively.
LANA is the second of three 100+ yachts Benetti launched during its first ‘giga yacht season’ and won Yacht of the Year award for vessels above 82m+ at the World Yachts Trophies 2019. The naval architecture comes from P.L.A.N.A. (PierLuigi Ausonio Naval Architecture) and her two diesel electric engines each producing 2,800 kW each give a maximum speed of 18.5 knots and a transatlantic range of 5,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.
Imperial’s Director, Julia Stewart, commented on the recent delivery:
“Being linked to the second 100m+ superyacht ever delivered in Italy by the private shipyard Benetti is a pride that we share with the builder. It was a pleasure to collaborate once again with their professional teams and their dynamic behaviour in a proactive atmosphere. LANA is bold, unique, sleek and aggressive, boasting high ceilings up to 2.7m in height and mixing perfect experience at sea and unforgettable charter moments.
“She is now entering our Charter Central Agency fleet, already with a large array of destinations in her bucket list that she will explore. LANA has an incredible appeal that will make her, for sure, the next decade superyacht charter yacht to experience in her range once in a lifetime. We would like to thank the Imperial team behind this impressive success, their hard work and extreme dedication to making the dream of our client come true.”
