New Model: Benetti 116 Mediterraneo

At the end of August Benetti launched hull number one of the 116 Mediterraneo, a new model for its semi custom Class Displacement line, which starts with the 93 Delfino and goes up to the 145 Vision model.  Standing at over 35 meters in length the 116 Mediterraneo is a design of Italy's new hot designer Giorgio Maria Cassetta, who went for the classic Benetti looks as evoked since the nineties by the famous Italian super yacht builder. The new 116 Mediterraneo features a lot of intelligent solutions made to extend space, and have no interrupted views from the living areas.  Power comes from twin Man 1400hp engines which give max speeds up to 15 knots.  Three further hulls are already in construction as before the fall boat show season started.
