Out-News = Benetti Super Yacht Burned and Capsized at Miami

A Benetti 120 feet super yacht has caught fire and later on capsized at Island Gardens Marina in Miami at around 7:30 PM local time on Wednesday 18th December.  The Benetti titled Andiamo is believed to be owned by singer Marc Anthony, who is reported to have not been on-board at the time of the fire.  Two crew members have been reported to have been on-board Andiamo but have been evacuated without any injury.  Thanks to the operation of the Miami fire fighting squad which involved over forty fire fighters the neighboring yachts have not been damaged.  Unfortunately Andiamo has also capsized during the fire and has been declared as a total loss.
Andiamo was a Benetti Classic 120, build in 2006 and designed by Stefano Righini with interior by Francois Zuretti.  The Benetti Classic 120 is a semi produced fiberglass super yacht with the owner having semi-custom options for the interior, and is powered by twin MTU 1500hp which allow her displacement hull to reach top speeds up to seventeen knots.  A cruise of ten knots allows for a range up to 3300 nautical miles. The Benetti Classic 120 accommodation layout is divided over three decks, and sleeps ten in five guest cabins including an owners cabin on the main deck.  Service requirements is handled by seven crew in four cabins.
