Benetti’s 67m Seasense will be making its world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show this week.
The full-custom superyacht, built at Benetti’s Livorno shipyard in Italy, has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure and was delivered to its new owner at the end of July.
The exterior is by Dutch designer Cor D Rover, who worked with Benetti for the first time.
Some of the boat’s features include high and narrow vertical windows along the side walls and in the 'Benetti Beach' area in the stern section of the main deck.
The main deck contains an indoor-outdoor area, with a table seating 12, which connects the outdoor space with the TV lounge indoors through a system of sliding doors. The floor-to-ceiling windows that open completely and the cutaway gunwales next to them offer a 360-degree view out over the sea.
Los Angeles-based design firm Area and Benetti’s team of architects designed the interiors.
On the main deck, the TV lounge has access to the lobby and a grey Antartide Marble spiral staircase with under-step lighting.
On the right is the VIP cabin and, further forward, the owners’ apartment, complete with chaise longue, twin walk-in wardrobes and a bathroom with shower and tub. The ceiling is over 3m high.
The owners are enthusiastic art collectors and specifically asked for a huge steel chandelier/sculpture, measuring 2.7m x 2.2m and commissioned specifically for Seasense, to be installed in the cabin.
The four guest cabins and respective bathrooms are situated on the lower deck to offer more privacy.
On the upper deck, in addition to the bridge and the captain’s cabin, is a second saloon. This more formal area than the one on the main deck is split into a living area, an office space and a bookcase, plus another day area further aft, furnished with sofas and sun loungers. The dining space is in a circular veranda with a table seating 12.
The sun deck has a covered, fully-appointed gym with access to the conversation area furnished with sofas, an American bar and a wood-burning pizza oven. The garage in the centre of the yacht is home to a limo-tender specially designed by Giorgio Cassetta.
Two 1,380kW Caterpillar engines deliver a top speed of 15.5kt. The yacht has a range of around 5,000Nm at a cruising speed of 12kt.
