Move over, megayachts.
Shipbuilder Benetti has unveiled its new flagship Giga yacht FB275, the longest yacht the company has ever built.
The new 108-meter yacht, which includes exterior design and decor by RWD and interiors by Benetti’s in-house team of designers, has everything from a large swimming pool to an onboard movie theater.
The new FB275 is the longest of three yachts Benetti built concurrently.
“FB275: a great success for Benetti, for Livorno, for Italy. Today we completed this delivery 40 days before the due time. We have made the owner, his captain and his team extremely happy and proud of such a real masterpiece,” said Paolo Vitelli, Founder and President of Azimut|Benetti Group.
The Giga yacht has a max speed of 18.5 knots, and a range of 6,500 nautical miles at 14 knots.
Other amenities include a fire pit, a spectacular observation deck, eight jet skis, a 10-meter tender, and a massive dining table on the main deck.
“The exterior design of FB275 epitomises all that RWD strive for in our designs – elegance, beauty, attention to detail and absolute quality in every surface and sweeping curve” said Adrian Chisnell, Team Principal at RWD. “Many years in development, the exterior lines were created to portray a purposeful and powerful stature yet with a timeless flowing silhouette. Significant engineering accomplishments on board coupled with such an elegant exterior form, masterfully crafted by Benetti create a unique statement – of which RWD’s whole team are incredibly proud.”
It’s a new level of superyacht, and one that will likely find its way to a Caribbean marina in the near future.
