The megayacht FB269, a 69 meter Custom megayacht with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure, has been successfully transferred to Benetti’s Livorno shipyard.
Benetti FB269 is the megayacht designed for one of the brand’s most loyal customers, Italo-American John Staluppi, for whom this is his third Benetti.
M/Y Spectre brings together all Benetti’s leading edge design and construction techniques. Among all the other innovative features, it will be the first yacht fitted with Ride Control technology, which delivers an unprecedented increase in navigation stability for a vessel of this type.
The contours of the Hi Speed Cruising Hull designed by Dutch firm Mulder Design have been optimised to deliver both maximum navigation efficiency, with a range of 6,500 miles at 12 knots, as well as a top speed of about 21 knots, which is 30% more than a traditional displacement hull.
Italian flair permeates the streamlined, modern exteriors designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta Design and the interiors by the Benetti interior design team.
The yacht features five decks and the layout is designed to offer big open air spaces and absolute comfort for 12 guests. Accommodation is provided by two owner’s cabins, one with access to an entire private terrace with an exclusive hydromassage tub and a sun lounging area, two VIP cabins on the main deck, and two more guest cabins on the lower deck.
The launch and delivery of the Benetti FB269 M/Y Spectre are planned for early summer 2018.
