The Crystal 140’ motor yacht Johanna by Benetti Yachts underwent sea trials on 20 January in Viareggio. Excellent weather conditions accompanied the latest model of the successful Benetti Class range as she set out to sea on her trial run.
Once a safe distance was reached outside the port of Viareggio, the usual procedure began for the manoeuvrability and performance tests. Exceptional results were achieved by the Crystal 140’ motor yacht Johanna at the end of a full day’s programme, meeting the expectations of Benetti, the designers, the captain and the owner’s representative on board.
Motor yacht Johanna a Crystal 140’ displayed optimal performance, reaching a maximum speed of 16 knots, thanks to its two CAT C32 Acert engines at 1081 kW. The sea trials are scheduled to be completed in the coming days, for the new model to be delivered to her owner in February. The ergonomic and functional layout of the helm station was designed purposely by Benetti, so as to accommodate the highly technological and compact Integrated Bridge System, developed in house and tested during the trials.
Benetti Crystal 140’ was launched in December 2010 in Viareggio at the Lusben shipyard, owned by Azimut-Benetti.
The launching of the first model of Benetti’s new Crystal 140′ displacement range was another important milestone for the Italian brand Benetti, a world leader in the construction of custom and semi-custom mega yachts. The internal décor of the Motor yacht Crystal 140′ designed by Francois Zuretti together with the owners and their architect, is a personal interpretation of the classic style, evoking the atmospheres and elegance of the Caribbean. The external lines draw large openings on the profile to let in the daylight and illuminate the interiors.
