Benetti announces the sale of the 63m Custom FB276

Italian shipbuilder, Benetti has announced the sale of a custom 63m FB276 to a German owner, introduced by Kurt Lehmann of Yacht Moments.

FB276 is a modern yacht with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure, designed by Benetti and Giorgio M. Cassetta Design and characterised by extreme on-board liveability, which is achieved by meticulously optimising the generous interior volumes with respect to exterior spaces defined by simple, flowing lines. 

The most notable feature of the yacht is a spacious apartment, located on the upper deck.  This offers the owner 162m2 of complete privacy, including a cabin, which has large glazed surfaces on three sides, two bathrooms, a walk-in wardrobe and a separate living area with sofa and television. These are all connected with a bow cockpit with a 55m2 bow terrace complete with touch-and-go helipad. 

The privacy of the area is ensured during navigation as well, with the help of a sun roof that is specially designed to block the view from the wheelhouse. Her central stairway leads directly to the bridge deck and the third cockpit, which houses a dining table seating 12, a bar, a Jacuzzi and a sun lounging area.

In addition to the saloon with living and dining areas on the main deck, is a large full-beam VIP cabin with side terrace, studio, dressing room and double bathroom. 

The design of the yacht features many other distinctive and innovative elements, including a stern beach club, which is open on three sides to offer contact with the sea with the two side doors and stern door open. A stairway from the cockpit on the main deck provides access to this living area during navigation. The large cockpit on the main deck is joined by another cockpit on the upper deck.

According to Benetti, interior designers Bannenberg & Rowell experimented with the FB726’s spaces, particularly with asymmetrical layouts. This is most obvious in the beach club which is rotated about 30 degrees off-centre to open up new perspectives of the sea, as well as in the main and upper-deck saloons, which are turned through the same angle to “challenge conventional expectations and perceptions”. Likewise, the all-around owner’s suite has been designed to offer breath-taking panoramic views through the large windows over the private bow deck.

Christos Ramnialis, general manager at Benetti commented, “We are very proud of the recent sale of the FB276 to an owner from Germany, which is an extremely important, strategic market for us. This is without a doubt the result of the internationally-recognised quality of our products and our consolidated financial solidity, which has allowed Benetti to win the trust of customers in all market segments and geographical areas.”
