Benetti announces new sale of the first mediterraneo 116’

Benetti Yachts announced at the past Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show the new sale of the hull N.001 of Mediterraneo 116’ to a client from Americas.

With 18 contracts signed in the last 12 months, Benetti confirms constant commercial outstanding achievements.

With delivery in 2016, the 35.5 meter long Benetti Mediterraneo 116′ is an important turning point for the yard and clearly shows the recognizable Benetti family feel, while tracing a renewed styling language.

Mediterraneo 116′ completes the Gamma Class range while at the same time introduces renewal and modernizing influences to the lines of a few of our most successful models. The success of the 116′ is already confirmed with the signed contract for hull number 001, but also with hull N.002 under construction.

Special feature of Mediterraneo 116’ is her design of the superstructure that provides a sensation of luminosity and the flow of the sections is fluid with no interruptions in the lines of the pure design. Decks are lengthened towards the stern, moving the visual center of gravity amidships giving the her lines a balanced, dynamic and compact aspect.

The main deck promptly shows us the first example of the Copernican revolution in design and layout brought to us by the Benetti Mediterranean 116′. The six meter wide cockpit is quite spacious and allows a panoramic view of the sea right forward with intelligent use of ergonomic spaces.

Farther forward we have the owner’s apartments. The study has a very regular shape with enormous windows. The owner’s cabin is full beam wide. The width is emphasized by the frameless picture windows that start at 70cm from the deck, with full height glass on both sides. There are two bathrooms, his and hers

A fundamental element of the Mediterranean 116’s upper deck is the spacious open area on the foredeck. Standard layout foresees a swimming pool, but this huge area is highly versatile and completely customizable.

The sun-deck is an exceptional sight with 80 square meters 16 meter long completely open space, all available to walk upon. The roll-bar is an integral part of the furnishings and storage space is accessible to the guests.

Hull N. 002 is under construction
