Benetti reveals Se77antasette
Benetti yachts showcased its new 77-metre collaborative project, the Se77antasette, at the Monaco Yacht Show 2017.
The yacht concept was designed in collaboration with Mexican civil architect Fernando Romero. Se77antasette includes a glass observatory on the upper deck and a further four decks accommodating up to 12 guests and 19 crew members.
She also features a fully functional helipad on the bow’s terrace.
Vincenzo Poerio, CEO of Benetti, said: “The decidedly innovative essence of this project is born from a perfect union between the two different worlds of yachting and civil architecture. The major difficulty was to make an already excellent product even better.
“If the shipyard’s identity is recognised universally as a sophisticated luxury product, then the Se77antasette elevates yachting to a higher dimension than we have ever seen before, drawing on Romero’s skill and Benetti’s know-how.”
The yacht has a top speed of 16 knots with a max range of 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. It will be powered by a twin 2,145 hp diesel-electric engine with variable speed options.
This is Romero’s debut superyacht design. His previous work includes the 2012 G-20 Los Cabos summit in Los Cabos Mexico and the New Mexico City international airport in Mexico City.
Romero said: “Se77antasette is the result of analyzing the DNA of Benetti and thinking further on the possibilities that new technologies have enabled, allowing us to create an entirely new yachting experience.
“This extraordinary collaboration has seen FR-EE and Benetti successfully merge our collective expertise to realise a state-of-the art superyacht, a new craft for the 21st century.”
