Benetti FB277 | 107m 351′1″

Azimut-Benetti FB277 will be the second yacht over 100 metres built by the Italian yard.

The first in-build pictures emerged in December 2015, showing that the steel hull was being built in three sections due its size. Meanwhile, its Rolls-Royce drivetrain is expected to push FB277 to a top speed of 18.5 knots.
