Benetti launches second giga yacht

ADVERTISEMENT

Benetti recently announced the launch of FB272, a steel yacht with aluminum superstructure built to comply with the Passenger Yacht Code.

At 328 feet (100m), the FB272 has a displacement of above 5,500 GT, a beam of 56 feet (17m), and six decks.

According to Benetti, the yacht has an innovative hybrid propulsion system with diesel-electric engines and six generators of about 1,000 KW each. The electricity produced by the generators is managed electronically, by a fully integrated power management system, to feed the consumption of the services on board and the electric motors of two Azipods of 2,200 KW each.

The spare electricity is also used to charge 35 tons of batteries that can operate the yacht for 12 hours with no engine running. The advantage of this system, according to the yard, is a vibration-free navigation in total silence.

FB272 is the second of a trio to be launched in Livorno during Benetti’s self-proclaimed “Giga Yacht Season.” Its launch follows the December launch of FB277, Benetti’s largest-ever build at 351 feet (107m).
