Benetti FB269 is designed for one of the brand’s most loyal customers, Italian-American John Staluppi, for whom this is his third Benetti. The modern exteriors are designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta Design and the interiors by the Benetti interior design team.
M/Y Spectre is the first yacht in the shipyard fitted with Ride Control technology, which delivers an increase in navigation stability for a vessel of this type.
The contours of the hi speed cruising hull designed by Dutch firm Mulder Design have been optimised to deliver both maximum navigation efficiency, with a range of 6,500 miles at 12 knots as well as a top speed of about 21 knots, which is 30% more than a traditional displacement hull.
The five-deck yacht features offer big open air spaces for 12 guests. Accommodation is provided in two owner’s cabins, one with access to the private terrace with an exclusive hydro massage tub and a sun lounging area, two VIP cabins on the main deck, and two more guest cabins on the lower deck.
