Benetti launches two more superyachts

As we've been reporting, May has been a busy month for superyacht builders, none more so than Benetti who launched two yachts in the space of 72 hours last week.

The first is a Delfino 93, launched at their yard in Viareggio. She is the second hull in this new series of 28.50m "pocket superyachts" (the first made her debut at the Cannes Boat Show 2010), that have been perfectly conceived to accommodate 10 guests in a full comfort. She is built in composite to a design by Stefano Righini with an interior by Carlo Galeazzi. Twin 747kW Caterpillar engines give her a top speed of 14 knots and a range of 1,500 nautical miles at 12 knots. Christened Mary-Rose, she includes a number of special features including a customized audio system and the world's first exterior LED lighting system, allowing 30 different combinations of colours and tones.

The second launch was hull FB248 (project Sofia) at Livorno. This 60m motor yacht is part of the famous series designed by Stefano Natucci and launched for the first time in 2003 with Amnesia II (now Altitude). This series has evolved since then, but retains many of the features that sets it apart, including a raised private lounge on the foredeck. As we reported in the 2011 Global Order Book, she is built in steel and aluminium, has a top speed of 16 knots and her interior was designed by François Zuretti.

These launches follow that of the 65m Nataly, currently undergoing sea trials and expected to be delivered in the near future. And at the same time, the recently delivered 45m Told U So was spotted near Monaco this weekend.
