Benetti said the owner offered a “significant contribution” from “conception to development”. This included working with Azure Naval Architects, Reymond Langton Design, Zaniz Interiors and Benetti’s in-house designer Giorgio Cassetta to develop the exterior design.
The design sports 800 square metres of glass on the exterior of the yacht, with three metre windows that flood the interior with light. Dining and social spaces are plentiful on the main deck and are sheltered by the superstructure. A private deck sits above, leading towards the helicopter pad, which is equipped with a fuelling station.
FB272 is the second of three 100m+ yachts scheduled for delivery this year. It follows the launch of FB277 in December, while the third 100m+ yacht is scheduled for an April launch.
Speaking at the launch, Azimut Benetti president Paolo Vitelli revealed the build had taken more than two million work hours from over 100 suppliers. “I could not be prouder to stand here among Benetti’s family, friends and colleagues to witness the launch of our latest enthralling creation,” he said.
“This iconic project has had a huge impact on local industry and, after more than two million hours of skilled work from over 100 suppliers, we can truly pronounce her as a wonderful achievement for Livorno and the “Made In Italy” ethos as a whole.”
