Benetti marked two significant firsts on Friday. That was the day the first Benetti Classic Supreme 132 hit the water, and the megayacht was the first model built in its new Lucca Dockyard facility.
The Benetti Classic Supreme 132 is part of the Italian builder’s Class line of megayachts, with offerings from 93 to 145 feet LOA. All are constructed of fiberglass, and all bear naval architecture by longtime Benetti collaborator Stefano Righini. So, too, do they all feature interior design by François Zuretti of Zuretti Design, though owners work with the designer to personalize the look. Hull number one of the Benetti Classic Supreme 132 series has subdued, neutral tones, mostly through the use of natural-stained oak and wenge. These, plus leathers and more, adorn the combination saloon-dining area, the main-deck master suite, and the four guest staterooms below decks.
Other layout highlights of the first Benetti Classic Supreme 132 are an upper-deck gym, full-height glass to starboard of the dining area, a hot tub on the flying bridge, and a handful of alfresco seating and dining areas spread over the various decks.
The Benetti Classic Supreme 132 will remain at the Lucca Dockyard for sea trials and final finish work. Next door to Benetti’s long-standing shipyard in Viareggio, the Lucca Dockyard can work on three 140-footers simultaneously. When sea trials are conducted, the Benetti Classic Supreme 132 should see a top speed of 15½ knots, powered by twin MTU 12V 2000 M72 diesels. Range at 12 knots should be 3,500 nautical miles. The megayacht will receive RINA classification as well. Interested buyers, take note: LY2 compliance is an option.
