Asia Yacht Focus is our series where we feature a Chinese or Asian-built yacht for our readers, or a yacht delivered to an owner based in Asia.
Benetti has confirmed they have sold their first yacht to fly the Chinese flag, with a certificate issued by the China Classification Society (CCS). The yacht is due for delivery in the first half of 2021.
Peter Mahony, General Manager Benetti Yachts Asia, commented: “The sale of FB270 shows that an evolution is taking place and that a market will adapt to its new environment if an open mind, hard work and can do attitude is shared by all parties involved. Following extensive work between China Classification Society, Benetti and Lloyds Register who will also provide class on this yacht, we are delighted to have confirmed this new build order”.
The FB270 is a custom yacht with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, featuring an innovative layout. The exteriors are designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta, layouts are by Benetti Basic and Executive Design Department while the hull lines are by Pierluigi Ausonio.
The interiors present colourways reminiscent of the sea, beaches and tropical islands, with a design developed entirely in-house by Maria Rosa Remedi of the Benetti Interior Style Department with full consultation and guidance of the buyers team.
Special features that set FB270 apart from similarly sized yachts include the service bathrooms on every deck and an abundance of technical spaces and storage areas. Special care has been taken to separate crew zones from the guest areas to ensure maximum guest privacy.
