Benetti’s largest yacht sets sail

ADVERTISEMENT

Benetti’s 354-foot (108m) yacht FB275 left the shipyard in Livorno on July 26. It’s the largest yacht ever built by Benetti, and the first of the yard’s self-proclaimed “Giga Season” to be delivered. 

The two other yachts exceeding 328 feet (100m)  – the FB 277 and the FB272 – are expected to be delivered later this year.

With naval architecture by Pierluigi Ausonio, FB275 has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, a beam of 47.5 feet (14.5m), a draft of 14.4 feet (4.4m), and weight of 3,367 GT.

Equipped with twin MTU 2880 kW engines and fuel capacity of 345,000 liters, the yacht has a maximum speed of 18.5 knots and a range of 6,500nm at 14 knots. There is also an electric Schottel stern SPJ pump jet to enable the yacht to travel distances powered entirely by electric propulsion, according to a company press release.

The yacht accommodates 22 guests and a crew of 29.
