Benetti Yachts has announced the launch of its Crystal 140 BY006 Equus at an official ceremony, the sixth unit in this series.
According to a statement released by Benetti, the Crystal 140 Equus represents a benchmark for its semi-custom class range. The Crystal 140 range was first introduced in 2011, to “satisfy the needs of diversified clientele for spacious above and below deck areas”, according to Benetti. The newest model, BY006 Equus, has been purchased by an experienced owner who was looking for a model to bring family and friends together, without being excessively large.
The interior of Equus, originally designed by François Zuretti, was recreated by the Benetti in-house design team, in collaboration with the owner’s own designer, Polly Sturgess’ POD Interior Style studio. The design is said to recall a colonial atmosphere with an African mood, in reference to the family’s passion for the African continent and polo.
Her spacious sun-deck is said to be the most important feature, due to the owner’s desire for privacy to host family and friends. It includes a large zone towards the stem of the yacht, with a Jacuzzi situated forward of the deck. The main deck includes a large living area, with the owner’s apartment situated forward and featuring a study, walk-in closet and bedroom with 180° panoramic views of the sea.
Fabio Ermett, CCO at Benetti commented, “Her launch once again confirms the success of the semi-custom Crystal 140’ model, surely the most spacious yacht in her category. This strong point, coupled with timeless design and a quality and level of comfort unique for her category, are the perfect mix for this design.
“And thanks to our order backlog we are able to offer exceptionally rapid delivery times using our “on-spec” system. Hull number seven, to be delivered in December 2016, is an example of this rare opportunity.”
