Yachts are not only the toys of the rich and powerful but also an investment category. Especially tech giants like Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Oracle founder Larry Ellison, or former Google CEO Eric Schmidt are massively invested in yachts. In this respect, yachts are also considered accordingly on The Cyber Voice. Benetti (website), one of Europe’s oldest luxury yacht builders, has proudly announced the sale of its inaugural 44-metre yacht from the fresh “Class” series facilitated by Northrop & Johnson (website Northrop Johnson).
This luxurious vessel is set to grace the waters by February 2025. This news follows shortly after Benetti unveiled this flagship yacht, marking it as their grandest glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) build to date.
The yacht’s aesthetic, both inside and out, is the brainchild of Giorgio M. Cassetta. It boasts sleek lines and encompasses four expansive decks. The interiors are designed to be minimalist yet sophisticated, using groundbreaking materials to foster a laid-back ambiance.
Benetti‘s CCO, Sebastiano Fanizza, expressed his enthusiasm about the Class series’ evolution, stating, “The introduction of the new yacht enriches the Class collection. Our clientele anticipates novel and refined yachts from Benetti, and the Benetti Class 44M flagship truly embodies these expectations, offering a spacious design that prioritizes the owner’s comfort and luxury.“
The yacht can comfortably accommodate 12 guests in its six lavish cabins, with the master suite featuring its own office space. The main deck lounge offers an uninterrupted view of the ocean, thanks to its low-profile bulwarks. The upper deck is perfect for dining, seating up to 10 guests.
Designed keeping in mind the owner’s love for vast open spaces and ocean relaxation, the yacht features a pool on the foredeck, surrounded by seating and sunbeds, offering a perfect spot for panoramic views. The sundeck spans over 102 square meters, ideal for dining, sunbathing, or enjoying a cocktail.
The yacht’s beach club is multifunctional, and its port-side garage ensures smooth operations for launching and retrieving watercraft and toys. Emphasis has been placed on sound insulation, with floating floors and bulkheads to reduce vibrations.
The yacht’s power comes from two MAN engines, each with a 1,400 HP capacity, allowing for a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising range of 4,100 nautical miles at 11 knots.
