Benetti gives in-build update on 70m Project Alkhor

Benetti gives in-build update on 70m Project Alkhor

Benetti has given an update on its 70 metre in-build motor yacht Project Alkhor after the hull and superstructure were joined in Livorno last month.

This steel and aluminium superyacht was designed in-house and is currently on schedule to launch in summer 2019, the Italian yard added.

Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split across six cabins, including a palatial owner's suite, complete with walk-in wardrobe, private office and a fold-out terrace. Meanwhile, the crew quarters will allow for a staff of 12 people.

There will be plenty of space for private moments and relaxed socialising, both indoors and outdoors — key features include a large swimming pool on the foredeck, while the sundeck features a smaller Jacuzzi pool and a large dining area, totalling 60 square metres. What's more, a superyacht elevator will connect all six decks on board Project Alkhor, which will also boast enough room for a massage table in the gym.

Power will come from a pair of 2,400hp Caterpillar C32 engines that will allow for a top speed of 16 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of 12 knots, Project Alkhor will boast a maximum range of 5,000 nautical miles, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 115,000 litres. A fin stabilisation system will ensure a smooth cruising experience, both underway and at anchor.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 63 metre Project Balance, which is also due to hit the water next year.
