Christened EH2, the second hull of the 36.8 metre Benetti Motopanfilo motor yacht series hit the water at the Italian yard's Viareggio facilities on April 1.
Delivery is slated for May 2022, following which she will join the Ocean Independence charter fleet. Her sale was announced in June last year with Lukas Stratmann of Ocean Independence representing the buyer.
The sixties-inspired yacht is built to a design by Francesco Struglia Design, with an exterior described as “clean-cut”, with “tapering forms” and plenty of exterior volume. The stern has been treated to a 21st century revamp and features a spacious beach club and large bathing platform, while the tender garage has been tucked away to the side.
Elsewhere, an observation deck has been placed above the hard top and is described as an “intimate fourth deck” for star or sea gazing. The interior has been penned by Italian studio Lazzarini Pickering Architetti, which focused on giving a contemporary makeover to the nautical traditions of the past.
The saloon features warm, light wood on the floors and curved ceilings while touches of white and blue are seen throughout. The cabin walls also follow the gentle curve of the hull, embracing the design of the yacht. Accommodation is for a total of 10 guests in an owner’s suite at the bow of the main deck and a further four guest cabins on the lower deck.
The studio also focused on maximising the impression of space and light inside the interior, combining the vast windows with the use of mirrored surfaces to increase the perception of interior space and emphasize ocean views.
The news of her launch comes after the first hull was delivered last year and named Koju.
