New-build Benetti motor yacht Project Balance sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Designed by Giorgio Cassetta, Project Balance is under construction at the Italian yard in steel and aluminium with an anticipated delivery in March 2019. The proposed interior design is by Bannenberg & Rowell and this fully custom yacht will feature accommodation for 12 guests split across six double cabins including a master suite which has large glazed surfaces on three sides, two bathrooms, a walk-in wardrobe and a separate living area with a sofa and television screen.
One standout aspect is the superyacht beach club, which features fold-out sections on both sides and at the stern, to promote a strong sense of interaction with the sea. Meanwhile, the main deck saloon features an open plan layout, with the lounge flowing seamlessly into the dining area.
A central stairway leads directly to the bridge deck and the third cockpit, which has a dining table seating 12 guests, a bar, a Jacuzzi and a sun lounging area. Another al fresco entertaining area is the bow cockpit, with a 55 square metre bow terrace complete with a touch and go helipad.
Christos Ramnialis, general manager at Benetti General, comments:“We are very proud of the recent sale of Project Balance to an owner from Germany, which is an extremely important strategic market for us.”
