Italian yard Benetti has sold a new-build 65-metre (213-foot) custom superyacht to the Asian market.
The yacht, known as FB270, will be the first Benetti yacht builder under China Classification Society and the first to fly under the Chinese flag.
Constructed from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure to a design by Giorgio M. Cassetta, FB270 will boast a spacious 160-square-metre owner’s suite.
Benetti Basic and Executive Design Department have configured the layouts, while Pierluigi Ausonio has drawn up the hull lines.
Maria Rosa Remedi of the Benetti Interior Style Department has overseen the interior design, implementing a style that will be “reminiscent of the sea, beaches and tropical islands”.
Key features on board include service bathrooms on every deck, spacious technical areas and an abundance of storage. Particular attention has been paid to ensuring crew and guest areas are kept separate for maximum privacy.
Peter Mahony, general manager of Benetti Yachts Asia, said, “Following extensive work between China Classification Society, Benetti and Lloyds Register, who will also provide class on this yacht, we are delighted to have confirmed this new-build order.”
FB270 is on course for delivery in early 2021.
