Benetti launches 67m Calex
The Italian superyacht builder has splashed Calex, a full-custom 67m megayacht with exterior styling by Giorgio Cassetta.
The 67m Calex has six decks
Benetti has launched the 67m Calex in Livorno ahead of a scheduled delivery to its Californian owner this spring. Featuring a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the bespoke megayacht has exterior styling by Italian studio Cassetta, headed by Giorgio Cassetta, with Benetti’s Style Department handling the interiors, which feature extensive use of maple and American walnut, ivory-coloured leathers, marble and decorative cushions with Loro Piana Interiors Fabrics.
Calex features five enclosed decks linked by a lift, as well as a sun deck. The beach club has a gullwing door that opens to illuminate the interior area, while a long, swing-down hatch to starboard provides access to the water and adds light. Steps leads to the main deck and an open-air lounge aft, while the interior has a saloon, dining area, galley and two large VIP cabins. The lower deck has four guest cabins and accommodation for 16 crew featuring similar decor to guest areas.
Calex will be delivered to its owner in spring
The upper deck is dedicated to the owner and includes a large master cabin with an elegant double bathroom, a private office and walk-in wardrobe. Two curved, automatic sliding doors open onto an exclusive lounge furnished with chaises longues, armchairs, a table and an original gas fireplace. The foredeck can also be used as a touch-and-go helicopter pad. Aft on the same deck is an interior lounge with a TV, and an open area with a dining table and seating area.
The bridge deck has an outdoor space containing a lounge area furnished with a bar, sofas, TV cabinet and barbecue and is served by a pantry, while forward is the captain’s cabin and wheelhouse with a touchscreen console designed by Telemar. The sun deck features gym equipment and a Jacuzzi.
The propulsion is Benetti’s first on a full custom yacht this size to fully comply with Tier III regulations, so is fitted with a scrubbing system for the exhaust gases from the propulsion and generating systems.
