Italian shipyard Benetti has announced the sale of its new, custom 70m displacement superyacht, Project 169.
With the yacht still in the design phase, further details are yet to emerge, but it is reported that Project 169’s design is being undertaken by in-house designers at Benetti, with input from the owner and his own personal design team.
Benetti has sold six other superyachts over 50m in the last 12 months, including 66m superyacht, Project FB273 in September 2015, and 66m Project FB 269. The latter was sold to a well-known customer of the shipyard, John Staluppi. Benetti is also in the process of building its largest ever yacht, 107m FB 277.
Speaking about Benetti’s position as a leading yacht builder, Fabio Ermetto, CCO commented, “These owners turn to us with very special requests for specific designs based on long standing yachting experience, while never compromising the highest levels of operation and performance.”
“This – in addition – is the result of our consolidated financial strength, developed through the years by earning the trust of clients around the globe.”
