It will take 5-10 minutes to complete. All answers are completely anonymous, and the responses are collected by our research partner, Tapestry.

Build progressing on superyacht Lady Candy at Benetti

Work is progressing on Lady Candy, the 55m superyacht in build at Benetti, as attested by the latest pictures sent to us by Captain Paul Brackley at Central Yacht, a partnership of experienced professional seafarers and architects that have been involved in her design and build. With her hull and superstructure now complete Lady Candy briefly saw the light of day as she was moved to the outfitting shed, but this is the only glimpse we will get of the yacht until she exits the shed for her launch in a year's time.

Paul Brackley, who was build captain for both the 65m Ambrosia and the 60m Xanadu, is responsible for the layout, with his experience as a captain an important factor in creating an interior optimised for efficiency. Improvements over rival yachts include features such as dining areas adjacent to service areas, a tender that can be launched by only two personnel, strategically placed storage, and a laundry with direct access to guest cabins.

Another Central Yacht team member, Andrea Manco, is designing the interior for Lady Candy, which will accommodate 12 guests in a master suite and a VIP cabin, both located on the upper deck with their own private terraces, and four large double cabins on the lower deck.

Mainly intended to be used for charter, Lady Candy will offer every comfort with a gymnasium near the beach club, a cinema, a massage room and a dance floor.

Lady Candy is scheduled to be launched in 2013.
