Serial owner John Staluppi’s forthcoming 69 metre yacht Spectre stole headlines on March 7 when the first in-build photos emerged from Italian yard Benetti. The exterior styling was developed by Giorgia Cassetta working in close collaboration with the yard’s in-house team, while Mulder Design contributed the naval architecture, continuing a 30-year relationship with Staluppi that dates back to the launch of Octopussy at Heesen Yachts in 1988.
