Introduced for the first time in 2011, the 42m long, 9m wide superyacht built from composite materials is the flagship in the Classic category.

The layout extends over four decks, providing accommodation for 12 people in five guest cabins. There is also the full-beam master suite forward on the main deck, which is appointed with a private bathroom and offers a 180-degree view of the sea thanks to long windows through which light floods into the interior.

The garage for tenders, jet skis and water toys has been moved forward and given a side entrance. This solution makes it possible to devote the entire stern to a huge beach area.

Two CAT C32 Acert engines give the yacht a range of over 4,000nm at a cruising speed of 11 knots.

The owner is satisfied: “The success of this project is a perfect example of everything Benetti represents as a brand worldwide, and it bears witness to the extraordinary quality of the products built by the shipyard. It will be a pleasure for me to navigate this yacht the world over, showing it off with pride.”
