Benetti Motor Yacht Botti Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 35.5 metre motor yacht Botti, jointly listed for sale by Arcon Yachts with Performance Marine, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Javier Aboumrad of Performance Marine.
Delivered in 2018 by Italian yard Benetti, Botti is the third hull in its 35.5 metre Mediterraneo 116 motor yacht series. Her streamlined exteriors by Giorgio M Cassetta conceal a bright and comfortable interior, as developed in collaboration with the owner’s chosen design firm Radyca.
Built to RINA standards, Botti has a 7.72 metre beam and naval architecture by Pierluigi Ausonio. She has a fibreglass displacement hull and a carbon fibre superstructure.
Fine fabrics, warm-coloured woodwork and soft lighting all contribute to the convivial atmosphere on board. Key features include a main deck saloon that is split into a comfortable lounge, a formal dining area and an American-style bar.
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split between five staterooms, including a main deck master suite, two lower deck VIPs and two convertible twin rooms with Pullman berths. Meanwhile, the crew quarters are suitable for a staff of up to seven people.
Power comes from a pair of 1,400hp MAN V12 engines for a top speed of 15 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of 10 knots, Botti boast a 3,200-mile range, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 33,000 litres. What’s more, her electric fin stabiliser system by CMC Marine ensure a comfortable cruising experience, both underway and at anchor.
Botti was asking €14,800,000.
