Benetti 67-meter custom yacht FB284 is under construction
Italian shipyard Benetti announced that they are working on its 67-metre 1,200 GT Benetti project FB284. Benetti’s own engineers, architects and designers have worked together with exterior designer Giorgio M. Cassetta to achieve a functional and stylish superyacht. FB284 can accommodate up to 14 guests and 19 crew across six decks.Benetti FB284 was inspired by the platform used for yachts such as Metis, the 65-metre FB270 and FB274 as well as Project Fenestra. Superyacht's exterior styling has been planned to emphasise her length with continuous lines. The curve with the superstructure is broken by the bridge wings.The decor was chosen to be timeless with high-end materials such as Curly Maple woods, black Macassar Ebony with orange veining, Carrara White and black Saint Laurent marbles. The interior layout will have luxury areas such as an elegant main-deck saloon, an upper-deck owner’s suite with a private study and two bathrooms as well as beach club in the stern with a hammam and gym. The bridge deck will play role as a ‘party deck’ and have multiple outdoor lounge areas served by a large bar. The deck will be connected to the 90-square-metre sun deck and a Jacuzzi. Benetti Chief Commercial Officer Sebastiano Fanizza says: “If it’s true that buying a superyacht is an all-engrossing emotional experience, it’s impossible not to take account of the shipyard’s key role in supporting the owner in areas where rationality plays a more important role. It’s here that we make the difference, offering the design flexibility and construction standards that come from proven, long-term experience. This is the result achieved together with Giorgio M. Cassetta’s design for FB284, a ship that’s different and makes her owner feel “at home” by expressing strength in the form of extreme onboard liveability, becoming the perfect setting for memorable moments.” Credits: Benetti

Benetti revealed new 37m yacht design inspired by the 1960s lifestyle Motopanfilo
Italian yard Benetti showed a new displacement yacht design that is inspired by the lifestyle and traditions of the 1960s known as the Motopanfilo. To give you a quick insight, Motopanfilo translates to motor yacht. It was the 1960s term for the large yachts that quickly became the playthings of the world's elite. Benetti teamed up with exterior designer Francesco Struglia to recreate the design and style of past Benetti yachts and make “design for today”.The interior has been made by Italian studio Lazzarini Pickering Architetti with a focus on a “contemporary makeover” to the nautical traditions of the past.The saloon has warm, light wood on the floors and curved ceilings while touches of white and blue can be seen all around. The cabin walls also follow the gentle curve of the hull.This new concept can accommodate a total of 10 guests in an owner’s suite at the bow of the main deck as well as contains four additional guest cabins on the lower deck. Moreover, if the owners do not choose to have four additional guest cabins they can install a small sauna.The studio also focused on maximising the impression of space and light inside the interior, by combining the vast windows with the use of mirrored surfaces to increase the perception of interior space and emphasis ocean views.The exterior can be described as “clean-cut”, with “tapering forms” and plenty of exterior volume. The stern features a spacious beach club and large bathing platform, while the tender garage has been tucked away to the side.An observation deck has been placed above the hard top and is described as an “intimate fourth deck” for sea or star gazing.Benetti's yacht will have a number of engine options available for owners, providing a maximum speed between 16 and 18 knots and a range of 3,800 nautical miles at 10 knots.Unfortunately, the shipyard hasn't released renderings of the interior yet, but we are impatient to see the result.
