Benetti previews four custom builds


Italian shipyard Benetti has previewed four new custom yacht designs at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2017.

Benetti has partnered with UK design studio RWD to design the four new custom motoryacht concepts. The new family of displacement yachts, “BNow by RWD” featuring steel hulls and aluminium superstructures, are part of Benetti’s Custom Now range.

The partnership and yacht family were initially revealed at the Cannes Boat Show earlier this year, with the reveal of the new 130’ GRP boat “OASIS” from the Lifestyle range.

BNow by RWD offers four different sizes, the smallest coming in just under 500 GRT and the others measuring at 56 metres, 63 metres and 68 meters. All models will be built at the Livorno shipyard.

The yacht family is characterised by a sleek exterior and a vertical bow. It has shorter delivery times, thanks to Benetti’s innovative construction technology.

“BNow by RWD” joins “BNow by Natucci” and “BNow Fast by Omega”, launched last year and all part of the Custom Now product family.
