Benetti sells 47m custom yacht FB703 to repeat client

The Benetti custom collection is growing after the Italian yard announced it has secured a contract to build a new 47 metre yacht, currently known as FB703.

Due for launch and delivery in 2019, this steel and aluminium yacht will be built for a repeat client. Exterior design and naval architecture are being carried out by the yard’s in-house team, while the interior décor is courtesy of Mexican designer Mauricio Gómez de Tudd, who is working on his first yachting project.

Fabio Ermetto, COO of Benetti, said: “This sale is a sign of the commercial success that we are currently enjoying, a success that comes from our capacity to listen closely to our client’s needs and from the quality of workmanship that we can count on to make our owner’s dreams come true.”

Accommodation on board FB703 is for 12 guests split across six cabins including a main-deck owner’s cabin with a central bathroom and his and hers wardrobes. Four guest cabins on the lower deck and an upper-deck VIP complete the guest accommodation, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to seven people.

Key features include a wide-open exterior deck layout, which will allow the owner to fully enjoy the marine environment. Further details are yet to be disclosed, but it is understood that FB703 will be powered by a twin-screw diesel set-up.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 49.8 metre Project Blake, which is due to hit the water next year.
