Benetti launches new yacht

Italian yard Benetti has launched new yacht Mediterraneo 116.

Mr. Loui is a 35.5 metre long yacht Mediterraneo 116 series and it was launched last month.
The interior décor was created by the in-house team while the exterior design comes courtesy of Italian designer Giorgio Maria Cassetta.

Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split between a main-deck owner’s suite, two VIPs and two twin cabins with Pulman berths. The crew quarters allows for a staff of up to seven people, including a captain’s cabin on the upper deck.   

Power comes from a pair of 1600hp Caterpiller ACER C32 diesel engines that propel Mr Loui to a cruising speed of 14 knots, topping out at 15 knots.
Maximum range is 3,000 nautical miles.         
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include another Cassetta design, the new Benetti Delfino 95, with first hull due to splash down in early 2018.
