Italian shipyard Benetti has reported an ongoing commercial success for 2014-2015 with the sale of nine superyachts from September 2014 until now, including a full-custom 65m, seven Displacement Class and one Veloce 140′ Fast Displacement Class. The yard says the latter confirms the strong appeal of this new line following its introduction in 2012.
The announcement follows the news regarding the sale of two over 100m superyachts during the Cannes show last year.
The Benetti production line is working at full speed on 19 yachts, all to be delivered in 2015, including seven Custom projects 50m and larger and twelve Class semi-custom units. In total there are 45 yachts under construction at Benetti’s Livorno and Viareggio sites.
Encouraged by these positive results and previsions for the future, Benetti has decided to begin production of a 63m on spec. This will assure that even clients with short delivery constraints will have the possibility to own such a large yacht in a relatively short time.
