Benetti Reveals Details Of 50m Fisker Yacht
Published: Monday, 11 April 2016
Entrepreneur and international designer Henrik Fisker and superyacht builder Benetti revealed the concept of the 50-metre superyacht Benetti Fisker 50.
Benetti and Fisker worked on this partnership throughout 2015. The yacht was designed in California and will be built in Livorno, Italy.
The Fisker 50 is a new breed of luxury yacht that integrates a new concept developed by Benetti’s engineering team with Fisker’s dynamic sporty design that embodies flowing sculptural lines, a unique front view giving the yacht its own recognizable identity, use of black carbon fibre to accentuate graphics and a visually engaging layout.
The front view of the superyacht is distinctive with three stainless steel bars, unique to the Fisker 50. The captain’s window is accentuated with a characteristic white dynamic line. This is one of the recognizable style attributes of the yacht.
The exterior design shows a dynamic sporty side view with a strong feature line flowing from the front to the rear on all three decks. Extended carbon fibre shark fins give the yacht an aerodynamic and smooth appearance, and allow the functionality of incorporating lights to illuminate the ocean at night.
The superyacht offers ultimate luxury living on each of the decks. Every room is designed to enjoy ocean views in comfort and luxury. Onboard amenities include a beach club, spa, several bars, an ocean facing Jacuzzi, sunbathing areas on multiple decks and water toys including a 6.5m tender. A future owner will welcome 12 guests in six cabins, looked after by 11 crewmembers with comfortable staff quarters.
The main deck has a reception area with a seating and a bar facing the port. It incorporates a large living room with seating for 12 people, and a bar with chairs facing the ocean with floor to ceiling glass walls that slide open to enjoy the ocean breeze. At the end of the main deck is the master suite, starting with a library/office, bedroom and bathroom, all with generous ocean views. The master bedroom features a retractable "fold down" ocean-view terrace and is equipped with a fireplace, a royal bed, minibar, a huge curved TV and starlight ceiling. A large inviting staircase leads to the upper deck.
The upper deck features a movie theater with a giant screen and comfortable reclining beds. During the day, half of the area can be converted into a gym by sliding back the middle beds and removing the chairs. The cinema accommodates 12 allowing all guests to enjoy a relaxing evening.
The sun deck includes rear facing relaxing area, a dining table, a bar and a dual use fire pit or enlarged ice bucket in the center of a circular sitting area.
The yacht exterior has a dramatic body using lightweight carbon fibre accents, reclaimed wood, integrated solar panels and optional hybrid power. Advanced solar panels with a unique graphic for aesthetics, provide ambient deck lighting, using solar power stored during the day. At night, hidden ambient lights mounted on the carbon fibre wings provide light from stored solar power. The interiors features advanced and sustainable materials, and state-of-the-art technology for automated controls and optimal power management.
