Project: Benetti 116 Mediterraneo

At the coming Cannes boat show this September 2016 Benetti will officially premiere the new 116 Mediterraneo. The new Class Displacement series model at just over 35 meter is characterized by smooth and slender lines, representing a stylistic revolution for the shipyard. One of the main focus of the project is surely the brightness theme: the careful superstructure’s design provides a sensation of luminosity, amplified by several elements on-board. For instance, the two meter wide crystal doors that from the main deck gives onto the salon, or the continuous three meter tall picture windows. Always in the same salon, in the dining area, two windows give onto the exterior walkway that, thanks to its width, can also be used as a balcony.  On the main deck can be found another perfect example of the revolution in design and layout brought to us by the Mediterraneao 116, the six meter wide cockpit allows a panoramic view of the sea right forward with intelligent use of ergonomic spaces.  Farther forward, always on the main deck, is the owner's apartments, while guests have at their disposal four cabins in the lower deck, each one enriched by a large window that gives an exceptional sea-level view. Excellent design for the crew movement as well, so to grant the perfect privacy and the maximum efficiency.  Lots of space dedicated to fun and entertainments on the external area, with a huge area on the upper deck.  Performance is provided by two Man 1400hp each, giving the 116 Mediterraneo a top speed of fifteen knots, while cruising at ten knots delivers a range of three thousand nautical miles.
