Benetti is to present two world debut and one European premier at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show.
Making her first appearance in public is FB265 11/11. The 63m yacht has a plumb bow, which allows for an increased dynamic tendency, literally cutting through the water.
Her designated layout favours two spacious and comfortable owner’s cabins, one on the full beam main deck, the second on the upper deck with private access to the pool and solarium deck. The four guest cabins are on the lower deck, each with its own en-suite washroom. The yacht also features 46 lights placed below the waterline.
With two CAT 3512C engines developing 1350kW each, she reached a top speed of 17 knots during her first preliminary sea trails.
FB255 M/Y Formosa is a steel and aluminium hull with exterior styling and naval architecture done entirely by Benetti. She has five decks, with 60m LOA, a beam of 10.6m and a displacement of 1,060 GT.
The guest area’s layout and design were created by Sinot Design, in close collaboration with the owner. Five suites for ten guests are foreseen, with a complete deck given over to the owner’s apartment. The yacht will accommodate 14 crew members and captain.
The Formosa FB255 is propelled by twin MTU 12V4000 M53 engines that develop 1,380kW at 1.800rpm with a top speed of 16 knots, and cruising speed of 15 knots. While economy cruising at 12 knots the FB255 has a range of 5,000 nautical miles.
The third yacht is BF 203 H, the yacht is part of the Fast Displacement Veloce 140’ series characterized by a new hull design that makes the D2P (Displacement to Planing) hull even more efficient.
The Wave Piercer is a bulb mounted on the bow that comes into play when the yacht reaches 17 or 18 knots. The Wave Piercer travels just below the surface at slow speed, but once the vessel reaches the proper speed the Wave Piercer emerges and increases the effective waterline length, giving the yacht better performance and efficiency. Fuel efficiency increases by about 10% at a given speed, while with the same power there is an increase of about 10%, therefore allowing higher speeds.
H is equipped with twin five blade propellers and twin power plants developing 2,580kW each, with a straight propeller shaft configuration.
Her internal layout offers four guest cabins – two with twin beds and two queen size – on the lower deck, while the owner’s apartment is forward on the main deck.
The main salon is located on the same deck with bar zone and bridge, all with lateral panoramic windows for a perfect view. The dining area, with a large expandable table, is on the upper deck together with a second salon.
There are two sunbathing areas: forward of the upper deck with Jacuzzi and for the complete length of the sun deck with a corner bar.
