Lana represents the very best of Benetti Italian excellence, with the shipyard’s in-house expertise taking full control of both the interior and exterior design. The 107m superyacht features a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, along with a beam of 15.2 metres which affords glorious guest spaces throughout. Lana is future-proof with a diesel-electric propulsion system, large swimming pool, helipad, spa and an array of toys and tenders. Imperial has acted as Build Supervisor and Owner’s Representative throughout, and Lana will now become part of Imperial’s Charter Central Agency fleet.
The official delivery was conducted on 18th June after the Owner decided to keep the superyacht at the Benetti yard during the winter season, during which time she was fitted with extra amenities including two innovative Kongsberg wing stations. Upon completion, the Owner was certainly thrilled with the outcome, stating: “I am absolutely satisfied with the work done by Benetti and Imperial together. Lana represents a statement of building excellence, every technical feature, every aesthetic element, every single detail was executed to perfection. I am glad we all made this way to prove a new level of Italian shipbuilding industry.”
A mesmerising 107m long structure, Lana is the epitome of why Italy has such a stronghold in the superyacht industry. She draws on the very best of Benetti’s heritage but also its commitment to pioneering technology, unparalleled quality and iconic elegance. Rigorous testing was completed successfully under the current challenging circumstances, with remote supervision arranged with equipment manufacturers in England, Norway and Sweden.
“We are proud to have delivered another Giga yacht in our Giga season,” said Paolo Vitelli, President of Benetti Yachts. “Lana is an example of excellence: outstanding quality, unique style, and an icon of Made in Italy. A particular thanks to the Owner who trusted Benetti for this creation. We are happy to have met all his expectations.”
While the delivery of Lana has brought delight to both shipyard and Owner, she also becomes one of the most exciting additions to the charter market. With 12 guests accommodated in eight exquisite cabins and a crew of 34 attending to their every need, Lana is perfectly suited to provide unforgettable escapes around the world. All the world-class amenities needed for a superyacht adventure are found onboard Lana, including a large Sun Deck and swimming pool, luxurious spa with hammam, massage parlour and a grand piano.
Julia Stewart, Director of Imperial, commented on another successful delivery of a Top100 superyacht: “Being linked to the second 100m+ superyacht ever delivered in Italy by the private shipyard Benetti is a pride that we share with the builder. It was a pleasure to collaborate once again with their professional teams and their dynamic behaviour in a proactive atmosphere. Lana is bold, unique, sleek and aggressive, boasting high ceilings up to 1.7m in height and mixing perfect experience at sea and unforgettable charter moments.
“She is now entering our Charter Central Agency fleet, already with a large array of destinations in her bucket list that she will explore. “LANA” has an incredible appeal that will make her, for sure, the next decade superyacht charter yacht to experience in her range once in a lifetime. We would like to thank the Imperial team behind this impressive success, their hard work and extreme dedication to making the dream of our client come true.”
The strength and appeal of the Benetti superyacht brand globally continues to grow, as the Italian builder cements its position as an industry leader. Benetti’s first venture into the Giga realm with these three deliveries has been a monumental success, and we hope Livorno will see plenty more to come in the future.
