Turn heads as you tour the Mediterranean charter grounds in impeccable style aboard the mesmerising 107-metre mega yacht LANA from renowned Italian shipyard Benetti. Delivered to her Owner in June 2020, this brand new 107m/351ft luxury yacht is the third and final vessel from Benetti’s ‘giga yacht season’ and the largest Benetti ever available for charter.
M/Y LANA is contemporary in proportions and styling, exhibiting a muscular hull and superstructure in gloss white, complemented by the glow of the warm interior lighting after sundown. The styling from Azimut-Benetti S.P.A covers five decks that each provide their own fantastic amenities: The main deck aft is an extension of the main salon and invites guests to stay and savour the warm summer nights on the sofas with a laid-back ambiance from floor lighting.
The main deck aft is just one place for charterers to rest and enjoy the sunshine and sweeping views of the location, with the upper deck, sundeck and top deck all furnished with sofa-sunbeds to spoil a group of 12 or for memorable dockside events at full capacity. The foredeck meanwhile has excellent space for outdoor exercise and additional sunbathing space. There’s more than one grand alfresco dining area to tempt guests outdoors for the fresh air and views, and the raised pool on the sundeck is sure to be a favourite place to exercise and socialise outdoors.
The interiors are also the work of Azimut-Benetti S.P.A, who have a long-established reputation for quality and elegance. Motor yacht Lana is no different and gives traditional materials like leather furnishings and wooden panelling a modern face-lift for intimate surroundings that are suited as much to large gatherings as family get-togethers. First impressions count and when visitors step into the main foyer they will immediately notice the two intertwined ribbons of light spiralling upwards, surrounded by the staircase as well as contemporary art that manipulates the light.
By contrast, the main salon is an intimate environment, placing three large sumptuous sofas around a coffee table for conversation or a film on widescreen TV. There is a dedicated cinema onboard providing oversized armchairs, another plush sofa and an even bigger widescreen TV coupled with surround sound systems and blackout curtains for the ultimate private cinema experience.
Before settling in for the night, savour a multi-course meal worthy of the world’s best restaurants in the formal dining area: Padded high-back armchairs welcome 18 guests after a day among the golden sand beaches of the Greek Cyclades and the Ionian Islands, as your professional chefs create a banquet that caters to all dietary requirements within the group.
Take a piece of the Eastern Mediterranean with you wherever you go with the beautiful spa-Hammam, an ambient treat that echoes the monochrome colour scheme found throughout Lana by using mosaic tiles. After hours of fun in the Mediterranean sun, wind down with a spa treatment to unknot muscles before bedtime, or for a glowing appearance as you host a soiree by starlight. The adjoining beach club is a spacious lounge to rival the main salon boasting fold-down terraces on both sides as well as the large aft swim platform, while inside there are two large lounge areas and sunbeds for separate conversation and two widescreen TVs for entertainment while your crew keep the refreshments flowing.
The attention to detail continues right up into the helm station, creating a minimalist environment that matches the professionalism of the crew.
As expected of a mega yacht, Lana comes with a marvellous selection of the very latest water toys, among which there are jet skis, Seabobs, windsurfs, wakeboards, Scuba diving equipment, fishing gear and golf gear including biodegradable balls.
When guests aren’t living life to the fullest on the water or the beach, there is a fully equipped gym on board with fitness instructors to keep guests in peak condition despite any over-indulgences during the charter.
When it comes to the accommodation, there are eight marvellous en-suite cabins to host up to 12 guests – A full-beam Master suite with private outdoor terrace and seven VIP staterooms, all of the latter featuring an individual colour scheme for more personalised space.
The lower deck hosts the crew accommodation and sleeps up to 34 highly trained crew, using their skills for fitness instruction, spa massage treatments and six-star service every day.
