Construction has begun on the 62 metre Benetti superyacht FB283.
The traditional coin ceremony took place in Livorno, followed by the keel laying; a construction milestone marking the start of construction.
When complete, the five deck custom yacht will feature a fast displacement steel hull and aluminium superstructure with a tapering stern and long bow.
Benetti collaborated with Giorgio M Cassetta and Van Oossanen Naval Architects on the design, which prioritises the owner’s requirements for speed, silent running, autonomy and family use.
Elsewhere, the yacht will feature “modern style” interiors flooded with light and plenty of storage for diving equipment, tenders and water toys.
Speaking about the project, Cassetta said the team had “established a transparent and constructive relationship with the owner.”
“We’re very grateful for being given the freedom to envisage a project that will be a milestone for our firm,” he added.
