Benetti sells a custom FB276 Yacht


A custom 63 metre FB276 yacht has been sold by Benetti Yachts to a German owner, introduced by Kurt Lehmann of Yacht Moments.

The yacht has a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. Its exterior is a joint effort between Benetti and Giorgio M. Cassetta Design, while the interior is by Bannenberg & Rowell.

The defining feature of this yacht, located on the upper deck, is a spacious “apartment”. This offers the owner 162 square metres of extreme privacy including the owner’s cabin, which has large glazed surfaces on three sides, two bathrooms, a walk-in wardrobe and a separate living area with sofa and television.

These are all connected with a bow cockpit combined with a 55 square metre bow terrace complete with touch-and-go helipad.

On the main deck, in addition to the saloon with living and dining areas, is the big full-beam VIP cabin with side terrace, studio, dressing room and double bathroom.

There are a number of distinctive and innovative elements on the yacht, including the stern beach club, which is open on three sides.

Christos Ramnialis, general manager at Benetti, said: “We are very proud of the recent sale of the FB276 to an owner from Germany, which is an extremely important strategic market for us. This is without a doubt the result of the internationally-recognised quality of our products and our consolidated financial solidity, which has allowed Benetti to win the trust of customers in all market segments and geographical areas.”

Benetti Yachts is based in Viareggio, Italy, and has more than 140 years’ history in building yachts.
