Benetti has announced the launch of its latest full-custom superyacht FB283, officially hitting the water for the first time during her ceremony, which commenced on the 26th of January.

Complete with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the interior and exterior was penned by Giorgio Cassetta, with the distinct hull lines designed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. 

The owner was represented by Nicola Nicolai from Nicolai Yacht Consulting & Project Management, who also acted as an advisor prior to the commission.

With a focus on comfort and exploration, FB283 has been created with family and friends in mind, with plenty of storage areas offering space for all kinds of water toys, diving gear, and equipment for having adventures on the water.

An upper deck garage can also be found, complete with enough space for a 10-metre tender, two Jet Skis and a second tender.  A touch and go helicopter platform makes sure the owner and guests can reach the yacht whatever the location.

In terms of performance, she is powered by twin Caterpillar engines, expecting to reach a top speed of 21 knots, making it possible to cruise for long distances without stopping. She boasts a beam of 10.5 metres, and a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.
