Benetti Delivers First Diamond 145
Italian shipyard Benetti has announced the delivery of the first ever Diamond 145 unit. At 44m in length, she becomes the flagship superyacht of the Benetti Class category designed by Giorgio Cassetta.
INK, the flagship fibreglass Diamond 145, is instantly recognisable for her striking exterior lines, making her an imposing yet elegant figure on the waters. Giorgio Cassetta, who has worked with Benetti on some sensational projects including the recent 107m Luminosity, has again applied his master touch to create a beautifully refined and dynamic exterior. The profile is complemented by spacious and contemporary interior spaces, which create a welcoming and sophisticated atmosphere for guests, designed by Benetti’s Interior Style Department. Up to 10 guests can be accommodated in the yacht’s 5 luxurious cabins, while an 8-strong crew are on hand to attend to their every need.
This first model had been built with close collaboration and engagement with its experienced owners, who could put their input into the onboard necessities. The result are remarkable interior spaces not only for guests, but also for the crew. To deliver higher levels of onboard comfort, an innovative platform promises to deliver maximum silence.
Benetti has reached and maintained its position at the forefront of modern superyacht design through a balance of tradition and innovation, and this flagship Diamond 145 embodies these core principles of the shipyard. Benetti are widely regarded as one of the most capable and consistent shipyard in delivering timeless yachting masterpieces, whether fully or semi-custom.
In fact, Italian shipyard has decided to give a name to this forward-thinking design approach: Obiettivo 50. This refers to Benetti’s mindset to always find solutions to even the most complex construction challenges, and use the highest quality components in all stages of design to ensure both the enjoyment of the owner and the durability of the yacht in the long term. This is very much a quest to always improve, and when one Benetti superyacht becomes an instant classic, you can bet your house on there being another equally as ground-breaking in their construction sheds.
Diamond 145 is a sculpture of sophistication and elegance that for such a long time has been synonymous with Benetti superyachts, and will continue to be so well into the future. The shipyard never rests on its laurels, and we look forward to reporting on more thrilling successes in the very near future.
