Benetti launches fourth Delfino 95 named Eurus
by Miranda Blazeby
Built from GRP and carbon fibre to RINA standards, this 29 metre superyacht marks the yard’s first launch of the year and follows the launches of the first three units, Zehra, Uriamir and Christella II.
Speaking at the launch ceremony of Eurus at the shipyard, Benetti chief executive Franco Fusignani revealed that its Via Coppino facility will deliver another 13 boats in 2019, including four more Delfino 95 units.
“This model has proved to be a successful one for Benetti, with six units already sold and four in production right here in Viareggio,” he said.
The four-decked Eurus features exterior design by Giorgio M Cassetta while interior design was handled by Benetti’s in-house design team.
The interior style is “precious and refined,” according to the shipyard, with key materials including light and dark oak and Zebrino and limestone marble.
Accommodation is for a total of 10 guests in five cabins while the main deck saloon features a dining area large enough to seat 10. The owner’s suite and galley also sit on the main deck with the galley stairs leading down to the lower deck where three crew cabins can accommodate a staff of five.
Four guest cabins, including two VIPs, also sit on the lower deck, each equipped with private bathrooms.
Power comes from a pair of MAN V8 1000hp engines for a top speed of 13.5 knots.
