Benetti sells seventh Classic Supreme 132


Italian builder Benetti has sold its seventh Classic Supreme 132 (hull BS007), in collaboration with Ocean Independence. The Classic Supreme 132 is a 40m yacht from the board of Stefano Righini, responsible for the concept and the exteriors, while Alessandro Pulina of Pulina DNA and the yard’s design office were responsible for the interiors.

Benetti has sold nine new builds since September and has 45 units under construction, the company said in a press release. Three of its new builds are on the move.

The 50m M/Y Vica, the yard’s first yacht with hybrid technology, was expected to weigh anchor in Livorno mid-March. According to a company statement, it “ensures comfortable hull performance (practically vibration free and silent) thanks to a special elastic connection between the engines and prop shaft.”

The 63.5m FB264 has been launched in Livorno. And the 56m M/Y Surpina was expected to be delivered in late March.
