New Model: Benetti 61m FB253

New launch in Livorno from Benetti  and its custom megayachts division with hull number FB253, a 61 meters long super yacht titled “Diamonds Are Forever”.  FB253 was launched on Saturday 26th November 2011 at the state-of-the-art Benetti shipyard in Livorno. Benetti 61m FB253 is the boat’s official identification, but for its owner it’s “Diamonds Are Forever”: the official name of the yacht and the personal signature of the established shipowner who has always been a fan of the James Bond saga.  Based on Benetti naval architecture and engineering, the elegant external line of the new 61m FB253 characterise a compact form and dynamic slender lines: a balanced combination of traditional design elements and modern innovative stylistic solutions which have become the shipyard’s distinguishing mark throughout the world.  On board, customisation to meet the needs and desires of the shipowner is total: the particular arrangement of the cabins, the location of the wheelhouse on the flybridge, the interior design and decor, the engine room made entirely of stainless steel and the addition of the top deck above the flybridge, a private panoramic deck twelve metres above the sea which can be reached by the glass lift that serves all the yacht decks.  Total accommodation is for 12 guests in six luxurious cabins.  Crew beds are for fifteen persons.  Power for FB253 is from twin Cats 1476hp giving a top speed of 16 knots, and an economic of 12 which gives a range of over four thousand nautical miles.
