Benetti unveils first B.Now 50M
The Italian superyacht builder has revealed details of the first B.Now 50M, part of a new steel series that also includes 58m, 66m and 72m models.
Benetti has revealed details of Iryna, the first B.Now 50M from the Italian builder’s new range of steel superyachts. British studio RWD has designed the 499GT superyacht along with 58m, 66m and 72m models, which all have a reduced construction time due to advanced construction technology and sharing a sinuous hull whose profile marries the interior and exterior decks with elongated windows.
All four models can be built with the Oasis Deck®, which builds on the success of the Oasis 40M by offering drop-down wings, a built-in pool in the beach area, a 270-degree field of view astern and from the saloon, plus a mix of sunlight and shade that enables guests to enjoy the deck at all times of day.
Built for a repeat Azimut-Benetti owner, the 164ft Iryna offers access to the water with a 390sqft beach club and an infinity pool, as well as a steam room. Nearly half the liveable surface area is outdoors.
The interiors are the result of collaboration between Benetti’s Interior Style Department and Visionnaire, the studio chosen by the owner. The claddings and ceiling panels are made with the finest woods, such as silk-coloured satin-finish frisé maple contrasting with oak. An ivory-coloured leather was chosen for the ceiling, while palladium, a precious metal in the platinum group, is used in manually applied, leaf-shaped satin-finish details.
Key features include the gym on the upper deck, the roomy relaxation and sunbathing spaces, and the alfresco dining area on the main deck, which also has an indoor saloon with a lounge and dining zone, as well as the owners’ suite with private balcony in the bow.
The hull was designed by P.L.A.N.A Design in collaboration with Azimut-Benetti, the top speed is 15 knots and the range is 4,500nm at 12 knots. The external garage forward of the main deck can house a 6.25m tender, a jet ski, a rescue craft and four Seabobs.
The Italian superyacht builder is staging the American premieres of the new Motopanfilo 37M, Oasis 40M and 47m Bacchanal at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
