Benetti introduces - and sells - first 50m superyacht in its FB 800 custom series

Benetti introduces - and sells - first 50m superyacht in its FB 800 custom series

Within weeks of Benetti introducing its new FB 800 custom series superyacht, the first yacht - hull number FB 801 – has been bought by a Benetti yacht owner.

The 50 metre superyacht will also be the first of its kind in that it has the unusual juxtaposition of a fibreglass hull and aluminium superstructure - an innovative combination that will give great design flexibility for customisation. It also makes for a lighter yacht, with total weight being kept under 500 tonnes.

The yacht is being built at Benetti's Livorno yard, which specialises in steel and aluminium superyachts over 45 metres, and is due to be launched in 2013.
