Benetti’s second Mediterraneo 116, a 35.5m fiberglass and carbon fiber yacht in the Class Displacement series, is expected to be ready for delivery Oct. 30, according to a company statement.

Project BM002 was launched in Benetti’s Viareggio, Italy-based shipyard Aug. 9. Like the previous model, the yacht’s exteriors are designed by Giorgio Maria Cassetta, while the interior design has been developed by the shipyard in collaboration with the owner’s designer.

Two Caterpillar ACER C32 Rating D (1600hp @ 2300 rpm) engines drive the yacht to a top speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of about 14 knots. The yacht’s range at 10 knots is 3,000nm.
