Benetti launches second Mediterraneo 116 yacht Mr Loui

Italian yard Benetti has released full details of Mr Loui, the second hull in the 35.5 metre Mediterraneo 116 series, which was launched last month.

As with hull number one Oli, the exterior design comes courtesy of Italian designer Giorgio Maria Cassetta, while the interior décor was created by the in-house team.

The yard added that natural light played a key role in the development of the interior with a particular focus on livability and seamless continuity of space. Al fresco dining options include a six-metre wide table on the upper deck, while the 16 metre superyacht sundeck on Mr Loui has been fitted out with sunloungers, sofas, deckchairs and armchairs.

Moving inside and the spacious lounge area has been split into two discreet areas: one for dining and one for relaxing. Three-metre long windows in each area continue the theme of natural light permeating the interior. Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split between a main-deck owner’s suite, two VIPs and two twin cabins with Pulman berths. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to seven people, including a captain’s cabin on the upper deck.

Power comes from a pair of 1600hp Caterpiller ACER C32 diesel engines that propel Mr Loui to a cruising speed of 14 knots, topping out at 15 knots — figures that Benetti will now put to the test on sea trials.

When trimmed back to her cruising speed of ten knots, a maximum range of 3,000 nautical miles is possible, while an electric fin stabilisation system ensures a smooth experience, both underway and at anchor.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include another Cassetta design, the new Benetti Delfino 95, with first hull due to splash down in early 2018.
