Staluppi yacht Spectre launched by Benetti

Spectre, the ninth James Bond-inspired yacht commissioned by John Staluppi, has been launched in Italy.

The 69 metre superyact was launched yesterday (August 10) at Benetti yard's in Livorno.

Spectre features naval architecture by Mulder Design, continuing a near 30-year partnership between the Dutch studio and Staluppi that dates all the way back to the 1988 launch of Octopussy at Heesen Yachts.

Spectre is the third Benetti ordered by the owner, following Diamonds Are Forever and Quantum of Solace.

Formerly known as Hull FB 269, Spectre boasts an exterior penned by Giorgio Cassetta working in collaboration with the in-house Benetti design team.

Mulder Design previously revealed that one of the key requirements for this project was a maximum draft of 3.2 metres as the owner wants to cruise in the Bahamas.

It is understood Spectre will be powered by pair of MTU 12V 4000 M93L engines. These will deliver a top speed of 21.2 knots and an impressive range of 6500nm nautical miles when Spectre is trimmed back to her cruising speed of 12 knots.
