A custom 57m full-displacement Benetti yacht, known as FB 271, has been sold by  Imperial, who acted for the buyer and developed the specification of the project.

Luca Dini, the Florentine designer with 25 years of naval architecture experience, has been appointed to design the interiors for the FB271 project, which is scheduled for delivery in 2018.

Fabio Ermetto, Benetti's chief commercial officer, said the sale of this "jewel" is "confirmation that Benetti keeps receiving constant commercial achievements and is shown great confidence by the most demanding world superyacht owners.”

Julia Stewart, director of Imperial, said: “We look forward to working closely with Benetti on this project. We will continue to act as the owner’s representative and construction supervisor throughout construction and interior fit-out process.”

More details about FB 271 yacht will be released during the coming months.

It has been a busy time for Benetti, which recently revealed details of its 63m superyacht, the FB 265 11/11. The Viareggio-based shipbuilder will show the 11/11 for the first time at the Monaco Boat Show in September.
