New Model: Benetti Class 140 Crystal

Benetti has launched the first 140 Crystal model of the new Class Range in the World Yacht city of Viareggio, in Italy. This new member of the Benetti Class range the 140 Crystal was put into the water on Wednesday 1st December amid great enthusiasm during the Catholic blessing ceremony, which was a simple but moving event attended by the owner, his family and by all the people involved in building this beautiful super yacht, that stands out for its modern and innovative design. In the world of yachts, the 140 Crystal is inspiring and creates a special relation with the sea and the love for outdoor life. Comfort, stylishness and functionality characterize the dining areas and lounges of the sun deck and upper deck. The interiors open over the sea through large windows. The internal decor, designed by Francois Zuretti together with the owners and their architect, is a personal interpretation of the classic style, evoking the atmospheres and elegance of the Caribbean. The external lines draw large openings on the profile to let in the daylight and illuminate the interiors. Power for the 140 Crystal is twin Cat engines 1449hp each, which give a 15 knots max speed.
