Benetti launches third of ‘007’ trio

ADVERTISEMENT

Benetti recently launched its FB269 project, christened M/Y Spectre by owner John Staluppi, a New York businessman who has a penchant for James Bond movies.

Spectre, a 226-foot (69m) custom yacht with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, is the third yacht Benetti has built for Staluppi, following Quantum of Solace and Diamonds Are Forever.

Spectre is fitted with ride-control technology by Naiad Dynamics, a system that increases stability during navigation and improves comfort on board with the help of four stabilizing fins and three vertically adjustable blades, according to a Benetti statement.

Spectre’s hull, designed by Dutch firm Mulder Design, has a range of 6,500 nautical miles at 12 knots and a top speed of 21.2 knots, according to Benetti.
