New Model: Benetti 67m FB268

Benetti is pleased to announce the launch of the 67 meter fully custom FB268 named M/Y Seasense is a full custom superyacht with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure built for an experienced owner who has chosen the Benetti brand for the first time. The launch ceremony took place in Benetti’s historic Livorno shipyard, perfectly on schedule according to the production plan, with shipyard workers, management, the owner’s representatives and the crew in attendance. The elegant exterior lines of FB268 are by the Dutch designer Cor D. Rover, designing its first Benetti vessel, while the naval architecture was developed by the shipyard’s technical office. The contemporary styling of the interiors, on the other hand, is the result of collaboration between the Benetti’s architects team and the design studio Area from Los Angeles, making its debut in the world of superyachts. The layout includes six suites that can accommodate up to 12 guests. The basic concept underpinning this Benetti superyacht is reflected in its name which has been translated into a design that revolves around the relationship with the surrounding environment. In fact, the owner wanted the outdoor areas to be as spacious as possible, to offer the maximum possible contact with the sea. In particular, the stern area of the main deck is given over to a big pool with a sun-lounging area connected to the peculiar main salon that, through the opening of big sliding doors, provides even more outdoor space for guests. Benetti FB268 is fitted with twin 1380kW Caterpillar engines, it has a top speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots. The range at a cost effective speed of 12 knots is 5,000 nautical miles. Final delivery is scheduled for the end of July 2017,
