Projects: Benetti Sail Division 98 Logica, Benetti Sail Division 105 Logica, Benetti Sail Division 105 Logica Evolution

Benetti Sail Divsion continues to present projects of its innovative Logica range as designed by architect Luca Brenta.  The 98 Logica pictured above is the smallest model of this range, measuring just short of the one hundred feet mark.  Presented first as a 96 Logica project before being renamed as the 98 this Luca Brenta project follows other traits of the larger models of this range, as contemporary design which fuses early twentieth century looks with a modern minimal super structure filled with glass surfaces, and a two and half decks.  Interior guest accommodation is for four double guest cabins with owners stateroom located on the main deck.  Crew accommodation is four persons located to bow in two cabins and a seperate quaters which features a dinette and a second galley.  Power is for twin 1000hp MAN engines which give a 14 knots max, and a 13 knots cruise, and a 10 knots economic this last giving a 3200 nautical miles range. 
The Benetti Sail Division 105 Logica is the most classic looking of the models of this range mostly for its more standard traditional glass surfaces.  Altough just a couple of feet larger to the smallest 98, the 105 Logica adds an extra guest cabin in the seven plus feet of more lenght.  Power is for identical twin 1000hp MAN engines which give a similar 14 knots top speed, 13 knots of cruise, and a 10 knots of economic run which gives a 3700 nautical miles of range.
For the 105 Logica Evolution, Luca Brenta shows a similar looks to the rest of the range with the contemporary looks outlining a modern feel thanks to the large glass surfaces as used on the main, and the flybridge deck.  Accommodation is again to a similar layout with a plan which has five double guest cabins, with the owners state room located on the main deck in the forward part.  Power is again entrusted to twin MAN 1000hp engines which give identical estimated speeds as the standard more classic looking 105 Logica.
