New Launch: Benetti 107.6 meter FB272

Benetti FB272 M/Y Luminosity is not an ordinary super yacht. The most advanced technology ever seen in the yacht industry matches the most pleasing results. Diesel-electric power, Azipod propulsion and advanced high-tech battery technology for covering 8,000 nm at 10 knots reveal a truly hybrid world cruiser. A floating dream not over yet. Her pioneering spirit is always monitoring the development of the future improvements and opportunities. The engine room is an impressive example of advanced technology. An advanced system for the minimum level of vibration and noises. A 3 megawatt/h Lithium Polymer battery bank for 12 hours of power with switched-off generators and no emissions. The Power Management System assures the best use of every ounce of energy. Appliances and systems on board operate with the maximum efficiency anywhere in the world. From an unrivalled audio-video system to a cutting-edge super-fast connection never used before on a yacht of this size and fingerprint recognition systems to access the more private areas. Preventive measures ensure safety in any situation. From sand filters and retractable stabilizer fins to a medical centre with an air sanitation system. So much more than just a practical purpose. Energy and technology bring to life some modern works of art on board. Over 370 meters of interactive panels show powerful images of nature letting them come alive and the 264 white magnolia flowers on the Main Saloon wall, silently open and close as a person passes through, miming the ever-evolving perfection of Nature.  FB272 embraces art in an extraordinary way. Beauty in its purest form blends with comfort and onboard needs. Every single detail tells a story. Every creation evokes masterpieces of artists who have left a mark on the history of art. Damien Hirst’s famous coloured circles find new expression on the French limestone floor in the Main Deck Lobby. As for Man Ray, an extraordinary eye-shaped construction at the base of the 18-meter-high stairwell winks at his magnificent work. The hymn to life of Matisse’s collages inspires the intriguing shapes throughout the yacht’s Main Saloon and Lounge. Among them, a sinuous configuration of hand-forged steel polished to a mirror that encloses a thousand Bohemian crystal bulbs illuminates the main lounge.  Other enchanting stories adorn this space: the beginning of Melville’s Moby Dick is gently engraved on the crafted pillars. The adventures of the world’s great sea faring explorers enrich the refined Portuguese Majolica tiles by Boca do Lobo on the cabinetry. An ensemble of highly polished concave and convex dishes flood the Master Deck Office with light. A great tribute to the Indian sculptor Anish Kapoor. Another eyecatcher on this deck is the Master Stateroom full custom Culligan hydromassage, crafted from one single block of the same marble used by Michelangelo to sculpt his outstanding David in Florence. The changing lunar phases in a single piece of Iranian onyx cut with surgical precision. A dreamy Moon Light shines upon the Upper Deck VIP suite. Endless details catch the eye without having to compete for the attention.
