Another three superyachts launched at Benetti Shipyard

After three successful launches of imposing Giga-size superyacht, Benetti celebrates three new additions to its fleet.

The 29-metre Delfino 95 motor yacht BAYA was designed by Giorgio M Cassetta with interior styling by Benetti’s in-house team. The yacht’s spaces boast opulent marble, shiny brass inserts and ash, eucalyptus and tay wood. The indoor areas are brightly lit with natural light through the abundance of glazing in the exterior design. M/Y BAYA is fitted with two 1,000hp MAN V8 engines and reach a top speed of 14.5 knots. At her cruising speed of 10 knots, she has a range of 2,400nm.

Designed by Stefano Righini, motor yacht BS012 has been styled according to the owner’s preferences: masculine design was created using leathers and iridescent metallic appearance and rich marbles. The outdoor living space on the Fly deck features a teppan griddle, perfect for socialising and entertainment. Huge outdoor spaces are mainly spread across the Sun deck and Upper deck.

The 35.5-metre motor yacht M/Y BIG FIVE was also designed by Giorgio M Cassetta. Her sophisticated and contemporary look in the interior features light-coloured matte-finish woods with shades of grey and dark ash, and Olimpico Striato and Zebrino Apuano marbles. The owner’s private space takes up all of the main deck, with a full-beam master suite, large ensuite bathroom and private studio.
