Benetti And Henrik Fisker To Create Yacht Series
Published: Friday, 08 January 2016
Italian yacht manufacturer Benetti has joined forces with international designer Henrik Fisker of Henrik Fisker Design to create a series of innovative 50-metre superyachts. The yacht will be designed in California and built at the Benetti facilities in Livorno, at the heart of the Tuscan coastline.
The concept will integrate a new platform developed by Benetti’s engineering team with Fisker’s sporty exterior and interior designs.
Fisker is pioneering a new design concept to enhance and optimise the onboard experience by utilising more space for both hosting and leisure. The design will add a new ‘human flow’ element to reduce unused space and increase its usability.
The yacht exterior will have a dramatic body using lightweight carbonfibre and other exotic materials, as well as optimised ocean views from all major cabins using reclaimed wood, integrated solar panels and optional hybrid power.
The interiors will feature a new design concept for each of the three decks that will enhance the space and emphasise comfort and luxury. Advanced technology for automated controls will be used throughout the yacht.

Onboard amenities will include a beach club, spa, several bars, a pool and sunbathing areas on multiple decks. A future owner can welcome 12 guests in six cabins, looked after by 11 crewmembers with comfortable staff quarters.
Fisker is renowned as the international designer for famous iconic, exotic and collectable cars. He is best known for his BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, as well as the Artega GT, Fisker Karma Hybrid, the Viking motorcycle, Mustang Rocket and most recently, the Force 1.
