1 December 2021• Written by Miranda Blazeby

Italian yard Benetti has revealed the first yacht in its 50 metre B.Now range, which is now named Iryna. Freshly delivered, the yacht was designed by British studio RWD as part of the yard's B.Now range.

Built from steel and aluminium, Iryna was delivered to its Ukrainian owner, which is a repeat customer of the Azimut | Benetti Group. Key features include large glass doors for "continuity between outdoor and indoor spaces," according to the builder. This is further emphasised by the infinity pool and 36 square metre beach club, complete with a steam room. On the upper deck, Iryna features a gym with an outdoor lunch spot on the main deck below. The owner's suite, which is designed specifically for maximum privacy, sits at the bow of the main deck. 

The yard revealed new details about the range at the Monaco Yacht Show

The interiors meanwhile were designed in-house in collaboration with studio Visionnaire, which was specifically chosen by the owner. Key materials include fine woods, such as silk-coloured satin-finish frisé maple and ivory-coloured leather for the ceiling. Elsewhere, palladium features in "leaf-shaped satin-finish details", the yard said.

Iryna has stowage for a 6.25 metre tender, Jet Ski, rescue craft and four Seabobs in the main deck garage, while the yacht boasts a top speed of 15 knots and a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.

The Italian yard used the occasion of the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show to reveal it had sold the first 50 metre BNow yacht to a repeat Benetti client.
