New Model: Benetti 47m Imagination FB501

Benetti inaugurated a new semi-displacement line, entirely made of aluminum with the new 47m Imagination hull FB501. The first model FB 501 for this new series has been delivered to her owner in mid July 2010. Imagination should be considered the evolution of the Golden Bay line designed by Stefano Natucci, who also signed the new 47-meter yacht. The interiors, completely customized according to the owner’s needs, have been designed by Francois Zuretti, and feature a six double cabins plan. Surely innovative is the owners room having a private terrace with jacuzzi on the fore peak deck. The yacht has exterior lines that are original both in their conception and in form. Her hull is innovative below the waterline too and can reach speeds up to 24 knots, cruise at 22, and run 3500 nautical miles at an economic 12 knots with twin MTU 3650hp engines.
