Benetti begins outfitting work on fourth 67m B.Now steel superyacht

17 May 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Benetti has announced that outfitting has begun on its fourth 67-metre B.Now steel superyacht, also known as hull FB289. The yacht was sold by West Nautical in October 2022 with delivery scheduled for 2026.

Once launched, the superyacht will be the largest in the Benetti fleet to be built with the shipyard's trademark Oasis deck.

The Oasis deck was first seen on the Benetti Oasis 40M Rebeca and sees the traditional beach club set-up replaced with a tiered aft deck that stretches from the main saloon to the water's edge. The space can then be widened by deploying two side wing platforms and is completed with a glass-fronted infinity pool.

The success of the design saw the shipyard offer the Oasis deck option on its larger B.Now models, including the 67M which has been designed in collaboration with British studio RWD. Interiors, meanwhile, have been styled by Reymond Langton Design.

The yacht will offer its new owners 1,350GT of interior volume and a range of over 5,000 nautical miles

Other design features of the B.Now series include an open-plan saloon with floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors that open fully to create a single indoor-outdoor living space that encompasses the majority of the main deck. This particular model has been designed to accommodate 12 guests across seven cabins and operates with a crew of 17.

Leisure highlights on board this unit include an observation deck, a main deck lobby, an outdoor pool and a gym and beach club on the lower deck.

"The success of the B.Now line, and the general increase in demand for large steel yachts, is an important acknowledgement of Benetti’s customisation expertise and our ability to satisfy the owners’ needs and tastes," said Massimiliano Casoni, Benetti general manager.

Geoff Moore, West Nautical managing director, added: "During the first phase of the build with the steel and aluminium construction work, it was great to oversee the project between Benetti and their suppliers. Now the outfitting work starts at Benetti’s Livorno shipyard for two years of work before her delivery, which will be closely overseen by our on-site project managers."

This follows the recent redelivery of the 25.6-metre classic Benetti Mi Amor.
