Consisting of a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure, the exterior of the FB276 is a joint effort between Benetti and Giorgio M. Cassetta Design, while the interior is designed by Bannenberg & Rowell.
FB276 is a modern yacht characterised by onboard liveability, which is achieved by optimising interior volumes with respect to exterior spaces defined by simple, flowing lines.
The feature of this yacht, located on the upper deck, offers the owner 162 m2 of privacy, including the owner’s cabin, which has large glazed surfaces on three sides, two bathrooms, a walk-in wardrobe and a separate living area with sofa and television. These are all connected with a bow cockpit combined with a 55 m2 bow terrace complete with a touch-and-go helipad.
The privacy of the area is ensured during navigation as well, with the help of the “sun roof”, which is specially designed to block the view from the wheelhouse. The central stairway leads directly to the bridge deck and the third cockpit, which has a dining table seating 12, a bar, a jacuzzi and a sun lounging area.
On the main deck, in addition to the saloon with living and dining areas, is the full-beam VIP cabin with side terrace, studio, dressing room and double bathroom.
The design of this yacht also includes the stern beach club, which is open on three sides, offering contact with the sea when both of the two side doors and the stern door are open.
The spaces available in the FB276 have allowed Bannenberg & Rowell to experiment with asymmetrical layouts.
The new approach is clear to see in the beach club, which is rotated about 30 degrees off-centre to open up new perspectives of the sea, as well as in the main and upper deck saloons. Likewise, the all-around owner’s suite has been designed to offer panoramic views through the large windows over the private bow deck.
Christos Ramnialis, Benetti General Manager, commented: “We are very proud of the recent sale of the FB276 to an owner from Germany, which is an extremely important strategic market for us. This is without a doubt the result of the internationally-recognised quality of our products and our consolidated financial solidity.”
