Benetti shows 108m IJE at Monaco
The Italian shipyard is displaying its longest-ever yacht at the Monaco Yacht Show along with the 65m Zazou and the first Diamond 44M.
Benetti and Burgess are presenting the 108m IJE at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show (September 22-25), where it will be the longest yacht on display at the world’s leading superyacht event.
The shipyard’s longest-ever build and one of the leading listings in Yacht Style’s ‘Top 100 Superyachts of Asia-Pacific’ in the past two years, IJE was built for James Packer and named after his children Indigo, Jackson and Emmanuelle with former wife Erica Baxter.
UK-based design firm RWD developed the exterior design and décor of the yacht, which offers over 1,000sqm of exterior space on five decks. Features include a heated swimming pool on the main deck, an observation deck, an outdoor fireplace on the bridge deck and a large collection of water toys and tenders.
Benetti is also staging the show debuts of the 65m Zazou, which launched this year, and the first Diamond 44M, a 145ft fibreglass yacht that launched in 2020.
Featuring an exterior by Giorgio M. Cassetta, the custom-built Zazou is distinguished by her Blu Carinthia steel hull and a 20m-long sun deck with an infinity pool, gym, bar, covered dining and a sunbathing area that converts into an open-air cinema.
Dutch firm Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design handled the interior, where highlights include a massage room and a second hi-tech screening room.
The Diamond 44M also features exterior styling by Cassetta along with interiors by the Benetti Interior Design Department.
The Azimut-Benetti Group announced strong financials for 2020/21 including 10 sales of the new Azimut Grande Trideck.
