Vica, a 50m motoryacht, is the first Benetti yacht to be built using two different techniques: the hull is in fibreglass, while the superstructure is in aluminium.
With a concept of flexible moulding, the superyacht has been designed to meet the client’s different customizing needs. A yacht for the Mediterranean, with ample open air spaces and a spacious open deck astern and forward with the upper deck and an enormous sun deck.
Fashionable full height windows that not only fill the interiors with natural light but also streamline her profile. Three hatches in the hull are a unique feature of this yacht. The first is laterally placed towards the stern for launching and recovering the tender; the second serves as a bathing platform; the third opens into the lower deck lobby giving air and light to an otherwise closed area.
Another unique feature for vessels of this size is an automatic gangway down to sea level, exclusively for the owners use.
Project FB801 is designed to fall under 500 gross tons with the latest in on-board comfort and extensive and pleasurable outdoor areas: a complete Mediterranean yacht.
Four decks linked by a central staircase that opens onto elegant lobbies that in turn provide access to the rest of the living areas. In addition, there is an under lower deck with the engine room, service areas, holds, and laundry.
Her internal layout is classic, with four guest cabins on the lower deck, the owner’s suite forward on the main deck, and an additional cabin on the upper deck.
The interiors are designed by Benetti, under the guiding hand of the architect Mariarosa Remedi and in collaboration with the owner’s personal interior designer.
Technically, the Benetti FB801 maintains her classic configuration, with a fibreglass displacement hull propelled by two CAT C32 Acert developing 970 kW each, guaranteeing adequate performance for her 498 gross tons.
VICA has a cruising range of 4,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots, but can easily reach her top speed of 15.5 knots or cruise at 14 knots with her engines working at 85% of their maximum load.
The M/Y VICA features a Naiad stabilization system, which guarantees a comfortable hull ride, practically without vibrations and noise.
