Benetti Delfino 93’ Ocean Drive at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2015


benetti_delfinoBenetti Delfino 93’ represents a perfect combination of Benetti’s tradition and innovation. The first motor yacht named Delfino was presented forty-six years ago at the 1969 Genoa Boat Show.
“We defined a new standard of excellence in only 24 metres” – comments Stefano Righini, the mind behind the concept. Delfino 93’ is in fact particularly appreciated because it is a luxury compact superyacht: it is not a small yacht, but it is the smallest mega-yacht of the Benetti Class Range, and nonetheless it is a unique vessel encompassing design solutions, technical equipment and spacious, comfortable areas, typically found on bigger boats with larger volumes. This is possible due to her beam which also provides great comfort below deck,where two large VIP cabins and two guest cabins are located.
The external lines have a highly innovative stylistic touch with large glass surfaces allowing owner and guests to enjoy striking views of the sea and of the surrounding landscape. The glass window of the owner’s cabin stands out in particular as, even though there is a side passage-way, it is wider than ever. Wide, upright windows guarantee functionality and comfort even in the wheel-house, whose interiors were designed like those of a megayacht, thereby enjoying a 180°. Thanks to her length under 24 m, it is a pleasure to command Delfino 93’ even for its owner: the Delfino is indeed a pleasure boat.
The presence of the bulb and the stability of the hull make it second to none in terms of overall comfort. Both features allow the new stabilising system – which runs with electrical actuators as opposed to hydraulic – to work on an already very stable hull and therefore guarantee sea keeping both at sea and at anchor. The tests carried out at sea achieved outstanding results in terms o f navigation efficiency, manoeuvrability, stability and reduced consumptions, which allow for enhanced range too.
One of the most interesting technological innovations of Delfino pertains to safety: the partitioning with watertight bulkheads is identical to that found on ocean-crossing vessels, which always guarantees seaworthiness even in the case of a damaged hull. The utmost attention paid to the constructive quality is reflected in comfort, reduced noise and vibrations. These are distinctive features that have significantly contributed to Delfino’s sales record since its debut.
The American owners of Delfino m/y Ocean Drive – hull number three (BD003) out of 8 unit sold around the world since her debut – interpreted Carlo Galeazzi’s interior lay-out at his best fully customizing this unit as a pure expression of Italian design and style reflecting their very personal sensitivity. Iconic brands like: Minotti, B&B, Flos, Armani Home, Missoni, Alcantara, Rubelli among the others are represented at their best into this unique, charming, “small” megayacht.
Interiors have been designed with a perfect balance of white, warm and natural oak wood combined with light grey “frames” and white leather. Every component is fitted in order to create a natural harmony in each ambience. “Striato elegante” marble, chrome steel details and sting-ray (fish) leather complete this design “experience” creating an expanded, spatial feeling, which is bright and relaxing.
Even the light – multi/white led system – is contributing to create 12 different atmospheres according to moments of life on board such as dining, guests on board or simply relaxing. Finally, Delfino 93’ has several outdoor areas that allow 10 guests to live on board in the maximum comfort and privacy, from the sunbathing area in front of the deckhouse to the huge fly-bridge and the shaded area thanks to an electric canopy in the dining area of the Sun deck.
Once on board the Delfino, nothing on board reflects its length; everything is wide, functional and perfectly balanced.
