New 60m Benetti superyacht FB255 sold by Fraser

Jan-Jaap Minnema at Fraser Yachts emails me over the weekend to say that he's on the way to Hong Kong airport having just completed on the sale of a new 60m Benetti motor yacht, FB255, to an Asian client.

Currently under construction with an estimated delivery date of May 2014, the FB255 has five decks including a private owner's deck with overall accommodation for 14 guests in six staterooms plus 16 crew.

Jan-Jaap asks me to mention the tremendous hard work the Benetti team and also the Captain have done for this project.

He goes on to say, 'The Letter of Intent was signed the day after the Hainan Show, we have modified and re-written the technical specs, substantially changed the General Arrangements, decided the interior styling and negotiated the contract. This all in just over 30 days. It is typical for the Asian style of business: extremely efficient and fast!'

Featuring a very large volume of 1,100GRT and a helipad, FB255 was asking €48 million.
