Premiered at the Monaco Yacht Show, Se77antasette is the first concept yacht designed exclusively for Benetti by award-winning international designer Fernando Romero. It embodies Benetti’s spirit of innovation, design, technology and hand-craftsmanship.

Se77antasette breaks away from the traditional concept of yachts that subscribe to a rigid horizontal order. It features a revolutionary design in which flowing lines are combined with complex structures that draw their inspiration from the marine habitat, creating harmonious connections between all decks, design features, and surrounding environment.
Visually, this union between decks creates a single body that seems carved into the structure of the boat, offering original spatial proportions that enhance the close relationship between nature and the sea.
The totally integrated and invisible radar equipment, which is usually in full view on top of the yacht, is hidden inside a glass dome, without compromising the control of the yacht and the safety of the owner, their guests and the crew.
With regards to propulsion, the final configuration is made with five variable speed Caterpillar generators that allow the use of the full power available from the diesel engine as the speed is not limited to any rpm. It then keeps the entire engine room on only the under lower deck, allowing the lower deck to be completely dedicated to accommodation.
Vincenzo Poerio, Benetti CEO stressed the innovative essence of this project, born from a union between the two different worlds of yachting and civil architecture.
“The major difficulty was to make an already excellent product even better. If the shipyard’s identity is recognised universally as a sophisticated luxury product, then the Se77antasette elevates yachting to a higher dimension than we have ever seen before, drawing on Romero’s skill and Benetti’s know-how”.
Se77antasette stands out for its space adaptability. The stern entry deck, with three complete openings, is transformed into a huge terrace that overlooks the surrounding sea, becoming an exclusive spa area dedicated entirely to rest and relaxation.
Here, guests can relax in the freshwater swimming pool and have a massage, or alternatively use it as a gym or a place to work in a relaxing environment.
The central area on the Se77antasette has a double-height space in the heart of the ship and a visual link between each deck, which opens up to create space.
The saloon can be fully transformed into an open dining area for breakfast with all the family, into a screening room, into a theatre or into a dancefloor with a strobe light disco ball in the middle and a DJ station for partying with friends, depending on the owner’s use.
The 100sqm master suite is situated in the forward area of the main deck. It’s also with 140sqm of private outdoor space to enjoy in complete seclusion. Inside there are an office, made-to-measure wooden bed, a large marble bathroom which has a view of the sea and a terrace.
Two VIP cabins and four guest cabins are on the lower deck.
Fernando Romero, founder of FR-EE, commented: “Settantasette is the result of analysing the DNA of Benetti and thinking further on the possibilities that new technologies have enabled, allowing us to create an entirely new yachting experience.”
“The sinuous lines and contiguous spaces have engendered a seamless and sophisticated ecosystem of programs and connectivity. This extraordinary collaboration has seen FR-EE and Benetti successfully merge our collective expertise to realise a state-of-the art superyacht, a new craft for the 21st century.”
