If you’re an avid megayacht watcher, no doubt the name Amnesia rings a bell (no pun intended). There have been three Benettis launched under that name within the past several years. The latest one built by the Italian yard is pictured here, just before (above) and after (below) hitting the water on February 9 in Livorno.
The 60-meter (about 197-foot) yacht features styling and engineering by Benetti’s in-house team and interior design by Redman Whiteley Dixon, a first for both the yard and this owner. His previous Amnesia, a 50-meter (164-footer), featured styling and interior design by Stefano Natucci. In contrast to that project, the new yacht is more streamlined outside and more contemporary inside, with anigre and walnut paneling plus black marble borders on flooring.
The previous Amnesia was one of the hardest-working and most active megayachts on the charter circuit, so it’s safe to assume this one will follow suit when she’s delivered come springtime. It’s also safe to assume that the next Amnesia will actively charter. Yes, I said “next” Amnesia–known as FB 252 (which stands for Fratelli Benetti hull no. 252), she’s already under construction at the same facility for the same owner.
