Benetti 56m superyacht Surpina undergoes sea trials
by Zoe Dickens
Benetti’s new 56 metre superyacht Surpina has undergone her first sea trial along the Tuscan coast of Italy.
Surpina was launched in March 2015 at Livorno by the Italian yacht builder and has been designed in close conjunction with the owner. His requirements included enclosed stern areas on the main and upper decks, giving the boat a striking profile and setting it apart from other Benetti yachts.
Surpina is powered by twin MTU 12V 4,000 M53 1340 kW engines that provide a range of 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. She can be seen during her recent sea trials in the video below:
Surpina’s design affords accommodation for 14 guests across seven staterooms, plus an impressive owner’s suit. The interior is described by the yard as ‘classic Italian’, complete with antique period furnishings, elm and mahogany wood panelling, white carpets and marble detailing as per the owner’s brief. The superyacht also includes an upper deck gym adjacent to the owner’s cabin and large windows which extend the main deck living area all the way aft.
On successful completion of her sea trials, Surpina is expected to be delivered later this month. She was the third custom superyacht to be launched by Benetti in 2015, along with 50m Vicaand 63.5m FB264.
