New Launch: Benetti 108 meter FB275

The final installment of Benetti’s Giga Season kicks off as the yard announces the successful delivery of the 108 meter flagship Giga yacht FB275, the longest yacht ever built by Benetti. Featuring exterior design and decor by RWD and interiors by Benetti’s in-house design team. Onboard amenities such as her large swimming pool, on board cinema, fire pit and treasure trove of water toys make her live up to her Giga yacht status.  FB275 is the longest of three hundred plus meter super yachts built simultaneously by Benetti at its Italian facilities.  The 108-metre flagship departed Benetti’s yard in Livorno on July 26.  The departure of FB275 marks a significant milestone for the leading Italian shipyard. With a steel hull, aluminium superstructure and a naval architecture by Pierluigi Ausonio, the 108-metre FB275 is the longest Giga yacht ever to be delivered by Benetti. She features 14.5 meters beam, a draft of 4.4 meters and a gross tonnage of 3,367 tonnes. After four sea trials she is now accredited with Lloyd Certification.  With a fuel tank capacity of 345,000 liters and powerful twin MTU 3862hp engines, she has a maximum speed of 18.5 knots and an autonomous range of 6500 nm at 14 knots. Benetti’s new flagship Giga yacht also boasts an electric Schottel stern SPJ pump jet to enable the yacht to travel distances powered entirely by electric propulsion.  From the large heated swimming pool on the Main Deck to her treasure trove of yacht toys and tenders accommodated on board, the FB275 is a Giga yacht built for embracing the very best of the yacht life. In addition to her two fourteen meter tenders together with a  ten meter custom tender and a total of eight jet skis, she boasts more than 1000 square meters entirely devoted to outdoor living spaces. The Observation Deck is a highlight on board, providing breathtaking evenings under the stars, while on the Bridge Deck a 1.5-metre fire pit sets the scene for cosy nights at sea. The Owner’s Deck features its own private al fresco dining and relaxation areas, while on the Main Deck a vast dining table provides the perfect setting for an evening of al fresco fine dining. FB275 accommodates up to 22 guests on board in absolute comfort and luxury, tended to by a yacht crew of 29.  The Benetti’s Giga Season officially kicked off with the builds of three 100+ metre Giga yachts at the Benetti facilities in Italy. To rise to the enormous challenge of building three luxury Giga yachts of this size concurrently, Benetti heavily invested in their company processes, as well as their Livorno facilities. A fully ENAC – Italian Civil Aviation Authority – compliant helipad was installed for the comfort and convenience of clients and their staff, while two new 58.5 x 137-metre sheds enabled Benetti to massively increase its productivity. Both sheds are equipped with two gantry cranes with a maximum capacity of 40 tonnes.  The development by Benetti of the three Giga yachts construction program has also required the creation of an exceptional team of experts specialized in large yacht construction. Benetti is one of the very few shipyards in the world with the capabilities to build yachts exceeding 100-meters in length. This is part of a long-term plan for Benetti, and it is, indeed, the dawn of the Giga yacht in Italy. For the first time, an Italian private yard will be a serious competitor in the international 100+ meter luxury yacht market. With FB275 now delivered to her owners, the handover of the 107-metre FB277 will follow shortly, followed by the delivery of FB272 in the second half of the year.
