Benetti Innovation and Eidsgaard Design have joined forces and are collaborating on the design of two exciting new 70M and 90M designs to bring something very special to the superyacht industry. 

The 70M-version is designed to look sleek and purposeful with wing-like fashion plates separating the forward and aft sections of the yacht. The bulwarks are lowered aft of the fashion plates and have glass insets to maximising views from the interior and to lower the perception of superstructure volume. This is capped with what looks like a classical funnel but is really a sheltered dining area for 12.

For a 70M yacht the saloons and cabins are huge. The service core has been rationalised and reduced to give precious space back to the owner and guests. The owner’s stateroom is 154 square metres and the saloons 190 square metres each. There is also a dedicated spa and gym located off the main stair atrium on the lower deck. All guests are located on the main deck with a staff cabin on the lower deck adjacent to the spa. 

The service core has been rationalised to ensure a coherent flow of crew invisibly throughout the yacht. Lifts and staircases run in straight lines through all decks, air conditioning and technical spaces have been allocated to areas where they are as unobtrusive as possible. 

The 90M-version has owner’s areas located over all five decks and features a 6.5-metre pool, a 200-square metre double-height main saloon and a 179-square metre owner’s cabin.

The sleek exterior profile is designed to look both powerful and purposeful. The clean profile lines are broken amidships to allow for full height glass to the massive atrium stair located within. Sweeping staircases that enhance the feeling of connection deck-to-deck connect the aft decks.

Boasting a spa, a cinema, six guest cabins, a VIP Cabin, a double-height lounge and enormous owner’s stateroom, this yacht has many unique features that can be adapted to any sort of lifestyle requirement. The double height saloons interconnected with a grand centreline staircase add the impression of grandeur to these spaces. 

As with the 70m, the service core has been modified to ensure clear lines of service throughout the yacht.
