Today marks the launch of the largest Benetti ever built, Project FB272. At 107.6m, Project FB272 was contracted in 2014 and delivery is expected later this year. This is the largest yacht ever built in their Italian shipyard.
She is designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta and has an interior by Zaniz Interiors. Built to Lloyd’s Register class, Project FB272 can reach a top speed of 17 knots and cruises at 15 knots.
Over 2 million hours of work went into the boat, along with 550,000 yards of cables, 8,600 square feet of glass makes this a huge achievement for the Italian shipyard. Located in Livorno, the Benetti shipyard has the capacity to work on building up to three giga yachts (over 100m) at the same time.
This is the season of giga yacht launches at Benetti, following the launch of the 107m FB277 back in December.
The third chapter of Benetti’s season of giga yachts is expected to follow in April 2019 with the unveiling of FB275.
All three of these Benetti yachts boast a length of around 107m, but the interior volume of FB272 is substantially the highest at 5,850 gross tonnes, compared to 3,800 for FB277 and 3,600 for FB275.
