New build Benetti superyacht contracted by Northrop and Johnson
by Malcolm MacLean
Jonathan Chapman at Northrop and Johnson in Newport contacts me to say that he closed on negotiations last Friday with a North American client who's now signed a contract for a new 45m Benetti Vision motor yacht.
Hull number 18 in the series, this superyacht will have a number of custom features to set her apart from her sisterships, particularly in the skylounge, master stateroom and sundeck areas. Jonathan says she'll also be the first Benetti Vision to feature large rectangular hull portholes, giving great views from both guest and crew accommodations. Delivery is scheduled for 2013.
