Benetti’s Giga Yacht FB275 is Ready
The final installment of Benetti’s Giga Season kicks off as the yard announces the successful delivery of the 108-metre flagship Giga yacht FB275, the longest yacht ever built by Benetti. Featuring exterior design and décor by RWD and interiors by Benetti’s in-house design team. Onboard amenities such as her large swimming pool, on board cinema, fire pit and treasure trove of water toys make her live up to her Giga yacht status.
The departure of FB275 marks a significant milestone for the leading Italian shipyard. She features 14.5 meters beam, a draft of 4.4 meters and a gross tonnage of 3,367 tonnes. After 4 sea trials she is now accredited with Lloyd Certification.
With a fuel tank capacity of 345,000 litres and powerful twin MTU 2880 kW engines, she has a maximum speed of 18.5 knots and an autonomous range of 6,500 nm at 14 knots. Benetti’s new flagship Giga yacht also boasts an electric Schottel stern SPJ pump jet to enable the yacht to travel distances powered entirely by electric propulsion.
From the large heated swimming pool on the Main Deck to her treasure trove of yacht toys and tenders accommodated on board, the FB275 is a Giga yacht built for embracing the very best of the yacht life. In addition to her 2 14-metre tenders together with a 10-metre custom tender and a total of 8 jet skis, she boasts more than 1,000 square metres entirely devoted to outdoor living spaces. The Observation Deck is a highlight on board, providing breathtaking evenings under the stars, while on the Bridge Deck a 1.5-metre fire pit sets the scene for cosy nights at sea. The Owner’s Deck features its own private al fresco dining and relaxation areas, while on the Main Deck a vast dining table provides the perfect setting for an evening of al fresco fine dining. FB275 accommodates up to 22 guests on board in absolute comfort and luxury, tended to by a yacht crew of 29.
The Benetti’s Giga Season officially kicked off with the builds of three 100+ metre Giga yachts at the Benetti facilities in Italy. To rise to the enormous challenge of building three luxury Giga yachts of this size concurrently, Benetti heavily invested in their company processes, as well as their Livorno facilities. A fully ENAC – Italian Civil Aviation Authority – compliant helipad was installed for the comfort and convenience of clients and their staff, while two new 58.5 x 137-metre sheds enabled Benetti to massively increase its productivity. Both sheds are equipped with two gantry cranes with a maximum capacity of 40 tonnes.
With FB275 now delivered to her owners, the handover of the 107-metre FB277 will follow shortly, followed by the delivery of FB272 in the second half of the year.
