Benetti launches fifth Mediterraneo 116 Big Five
The 35.5 metre superyacht was launched at the yard’s Viareggio shipyard on April 6 and features a fibreglass hull and carbon-fibre superstructure.
Her “sinuous and slim” exterior lines come from Giorgia M. Cassetta, who also handled the exterior design of the first four Mediterraneo 116 yachts.
Big Five’s interior design meanwhile has been handled in-house. The “sophisticated and contemporary look” has been created by the use of materials including Olimpico Striato and Zebrino Apuano marble, as well as light-coloured matte-finish woods.
The five-cabin layout sees the full-beam owner’s cabin located forward, complete with a private studio. The suite also features panoramic windows, providing plenty of natural light, as well as a full-beam bathroom area split into his and her areas with a shower cubical fitted with a marble bench seat.
The launch of Big Five follows a number of recent launches at Benetti, including the presentation of its three 100m+ superyachts.
The fifth hull in the 29 metre Delfino 95 meanwhile was launched on March 21 followed by the 12th hull in the 40 metre Classic Supreme 132, which hit the water on April 3.
