Henrik Fisker, the founder of Henrik Fisker Design, has teamed up with Benetti to create a series of 50m (164ft) superyachts with naval architecture by the Italian boatbuilder.

The yachts will be designed in California (US) and built at the Benetti facilities in Livorno, Italy.

The concept will integrate a new platform developed by Benetti’s engineering team with Fisker’s sporty exterior and interior designs.

Fisker will be pioneering a new design concept to enhance and optimize the onboard experience by utilizing more space on the superyacht for both hosting and leisure. The concept features a new “human flow” element to reduce unused space and increase its usability.

Carbon fibre and other exotic materials will be used in the construction of the new superyacht series. The design will aim for ocean views from all major cabins and use integrated solar panels and optional hybrid power.

Fisker says the design is based on a tri-deck layout and that the interiors will feature sustainable materials and state-of-the-art technology for automated controls and optimal power management.

Onboard amenities will include a beach club, spa, several bars, a pool and sunbathing areas on multiple decks. The yachts will have accommodation for 12 guests in six cabins and 11 crewmembers with staff quarters.

Designer Henrik Fisker is best known for his BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, as well as the Artega GT, Fisker Karma Hybrid, the Viking motorcycle, Mustang Rocket and most recently, the Force 1 among others.
