7 November 2023 • Written by Nick Jeffery

A $600,000 price drop has been announced on the 44.2-metre Benetti motor yacht Checkmate, listed for sale with Matt Albert of Superyacht Partners.

Built in GRP by Benetti in 2013, the Vision 145 model was designed by Stefano Righini with an interior by François Zuretti. She had a technical refit at CRN in 2021 and an interior remodelling in 2022.

Checkmate is now asking $15,900,000.

Accommodation is for 12 guests in five well-appointed cabins and there are quarters for a crew of 10. The master suite is forward on the main deck and enjoys a sweeping panoramic view through a semi-circle of windows.

Checkmate stands out from other Benetti Visions with her black hull and white superstructure. She sports a spa pool aft and a small seating area right on the end of the bow with sunpads alongside. Curved seating forwards on the sundeck makes for commanding views.

Twin 1,300hp Caterpillar C32 diesels power the 456GT yacht for sale up to a cruising speed of 14 knots and top speed of 15 knots. Range at 12 knots is 3,500 nautical miles. She is ABS-classed and MCA-compliant and the broker pointed out that she is "one of the few Benetti Visions built to US spec" and that the owner is offering delivery to the US.

Checkmate is now asking $15,900,000.
