Projects: Benetti Sail Division 131 WT, Benetti Sail Division 100 WT, Benetti Sail Division 80 WT

Benetti Sail Division continues to expand its line of Super Yacht by including new interesting range, and as the Logica designed by Luca Brenta here it presents the World Traveller range by architect P.B. Behage.  This range will feature a hybrid design feel of a tug towing boat with those of a Mediterranean yacht.  Four models all designed by architect Behage make of the World Traveller range of which the 115 RPH WT has already been launched.  Pictured above is the largest of the World Traveller range projects the 131. A two and half deck with a raised pilot house make the exterior of the 131 WT which will feature a six or five cabin layout with the owners room located on the main deck.  An incredible size flybridge is another feature, and this has been achieved thanks to the location of the tenders, and PWC on the fore deck.  Crew accommodation is for seven or eight persons.  Power is from twin 1000hp Cat engines giving top speeds of 14 knots, a cruise of 13, and an economic 5300 nautical miles long range 10 knots.   
Benetti Sail Division 100 World Traveller is the second in size of this very interesting line of super yachts.  For the 100 WT designer Behage presented a two deck super yacht with a split level two steps separate flybridge.  A four cabins for guest interior sleeping eight or ten is located on the fore part of the lower deck.  The owners room is located to mid ship, and features an office, breakfast table, and walk in ward robe.  Crew quarters are located to aft, and apart sleeping five or four persons offers a lobby with small galley. Power is from twin 596hp Cat engines which reach a top speed of 13 knots, a cruise of 12, and a 4300 nautical miles at 10 knots long range.    
The 80 World Traveller represents an important project for Benetti Sail Division as it is also its current entry level smallest model of the fleet.  The 80 which is regarded as a pocket sized super yachts offers a similar plan to the 100 with everything being smaller. Guest accommodation is for eight or ten in four double cabins.  Unusually and this being the main difference from the 100 in the owners stateroom located to fore, showing a hull very much dedicated to seamanship more then to inner space.  Crew quarters are located to aft, having a small galley and two rooms sleeping two or three.  Power is from twin 450hp MAN engines which give an 11 knots top speed, and cruise economic 10 knots .
