Benetti 69-metre Spectre, also known as project FB269, has been successfully transferred to the brand’s shipyard in Livorno. The steel-hull and aluminium superstructure custom superyacht is now ready for outfitting.
Benetti 69-metre Spectre is the yacht designed for a repeat client, the Italian-American John Staluppi, for whom this is the third yacht by Benetti.
Spectre brings together all Benetti’s leading edge design and construction techniques. Among all the other innovative features, she will be the first yacht fitted with Ride Control technology, which delivers an unprecedented increase in navigation stability for a vessel of this type.
The contours of the Hi Speed Cruising Hull designed by Dutch firm Mulder Design have been optimised to deliver both maximum navigation efficiency, with a range of 6,500 miles at 12 knots, as well as a top speed of about 21 knots, which is 30% more than a traditional displacement hull.
Italian flair permeates the streamlined, modern exteriors designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta Design and the interiors by the Benetti interior design team.
The yacht features five decks and the layout is designed to offer big open air spaces and absolute comfort for 12 guests. Accommodation is provided by two owner’s cabins, one with access to an entire private terrace with an exclusive hydro massage tub and a sun lounging area, two VIP cabins on the main deck, and two more guest cabins on the lower deck.
The launch and delivery of the Benetti FB269 Spectre are planned for early summer 2018.
