Benetti’s success continues unstoppable, even in the Asia Pacific area. After creating the marvelous Mediterraneo 116, Fast 125 and a custom 50-meter yacht that adds to the award won by Specter as “Best Custom-Build Yacht” within the Asia Boating Awards, the 65-meter FB270 still certifies the shipyard’s success in the Asian market. This is in fact the first Italian superyacht flying the Chinese flag and in possession of the certificate of the China Classification Society.
The 65-meter Custom FB270 will therefore be the first Benetti megayacht built according to the guidelines of the China Classification Society and the English Lloyds Registry. Among the most important features of the boat we find the steel hull and the aluminum superstructure. The project also includes an original and innovative design of the living areas and a main apartment of about 160 square meters.
The external lines are designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta and all the layouts are by Benetti Basic and Executive Design Department. The external lines of the hull are instead the work of Pierluigi Ausonio. The interiors are characterized by colors reminiscent of the shades of the sea, beaches and tropical lands and are the result of a project by Maria Rosa Remedi of Benetti’s Interior Style Department, developed under the guidance of the buyers team.
Among the particularities that distinguish FB270 from other luxury superyachts we find surely the service bathrooms on each bridge and several technical spaces, without forgetting the areas dedicated to storage. Great attention has been paid to the separation between the crew movement flows and the guest area to ensure maximum privacy, the main objective of the design.
Peter Mahony, general manager of Benetti Yachts Asia, comments on the whole project: “The sale of FB270 shows a real evolution of the market that is adapting to changes thanks to a new mental openness, commitment and a positive attitude”.
“Hainan is working to become an international tourist center, in accordance with the guidelines and general conditions of the state. The development of the city as a top-level tourist destination also opens up a showcase that acts as a stage for the boating industry and its growing innovation”, said Fu Buming, Head of Port Administration at the Department of Commerce of Hainan Province.
The FB270 superyacht will be delivered in the first half of 2021.
