Benetti delivers 69m Spectre


M/Y Spectre was delivered Nov. 19 to its American owners at Benetti’s shipyard in Livorno, Italy.

The 226-foot (69m) full-custom yacht, which took 750,000 working hours to build, is the third Benetti megayacht built for the owners in less than 10 years, according to the yard.

The yacht’s exterior lines were designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta, with hull lines and naval architecture done by Mulder Design. It has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, and a maximum speed of 21.2 knots, 30 percent higher than a traditional displacement yacht, according to Benetti. Range is 6,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.

Spectre also features Naiad Dynamics Total Ride Control technology, originally developed by Naiad for commercial and naval ships. According to Benetti, it’s the first time the technology has been installed on a yacht of this type. The system has two roll stabilizing fins, two forward pitch control canards and three independently controlled stern interceptor blades.

Spectre accommodates 12 guests and a 14-person crew.
