Benetti delivers first Mediterraneo 116 superyacht

Benetti has delivered the latest addition to its displacement range of superyachts earlier this month. Hull number one of the new Mediterraneo 116 line, which was first unveiled during the 2015 Cannes Yachting Festival, is now cruising the Mediterranean and will be premiered at this year’s Cannes boat show.

The 35.5m yacht, designed by Giorgio Cassetta, is characterised by her slender profile while her design still allows her generous indoor and outdoor spaces spread across three decks.

Benetti’s recent advances in the use of glass on board their custom superyachts are evident in this segment of their fleet, and can be best appreciated from inside the main saloon on board the 116. Three-metre-tall glass sides create a luminous environment inside; a theme that is apparent throughout the entire yacht.

In typical Benetti style, the owner’s suite is forward on the main deck, while the eight additional guests are accommodated below deck. The sun deck outside is completely customisable to suit each client’s usage needs.

The Mediterraneo 116’s twin Man 1,400hp engines deliver a top speed of 15 knots, and at an economical speed of 10 knots, she will reach 3,000 nautical miles.
