Benetti launches 67m Cassetta design
The Italian shipyard’s Livorno shipyard staged the launch of the 220ft FB285, which features an interior designed by the owners for “their new home”.
Giorgio Cassetta designed the exterior of FB285
Benetti has launched its 67m FB285NK, which features exterior design by Giorgio Cassetta and an interior by one of the owners, an experienced luxury real estate designer. The couple commissioned the megayacht as “their new home”, according to Benetti.
The 220ft megayacht has a beam of 11.2m (36ft 9in), a displacement of 1,250 tonnes, two 1,350kW CAT 3512E engines and fuel capacity of 127,000 litres.
The owner was involved in the project from the design phase when, together with the yard and the designers, she outlined a boat that reveals ingenious solutions behind the traditional lines. She played an important role in the interior decor, wood selection and layout, which includes just five guest cabins and accommodation for 19 crew in 11 cabins.
Circular hull windows are a signature feature
Benetti has described the yacht as “an elegant and refined beach house with a breathtaking view and fully appointed with every comfort for spending the day in complete relaxation, tranquillity, peace and quiet”. The lounge on the main deck features almost 2m-wide circular side windows, a signature feature desired by the owner.
FSC®-certified teak is used extensively for the decks, doors, pillars and furniture, providing a striking combination with the chromatism of the steel elements and the hull coat. FSC® certification is a guarantee that the wood is sourced from responsibly managed forests with a planned cycle of environmentally sustainable tree harvesting and replanting.
