An old saying holds that the third time is the charm. The fourth time is surely the charm, too, at Benetti. The last day of February, the shipyard delivered hull number four in the Delfino 95 series, Eurus. The name is fitting for a yacht: Eurus, a.k.a. Euros, is one of the gods of the wind in ancient Greek mythology.
The Delfino 95 series is a semi-custom displacement series, featuring design by Giorgio M. Cassetta. In addition, the series employs fiberglass construction, with some carbon fiber in the superstructure. LOA is, as the name indicates, 95 feet (29 meters), encompassing four decks.
Eurus has relaxation spaces for a party of 10, who additionally have four staterooms to enjoy. Although we don’t have photos, the interior decor is quite striking, and dramatic. For instance, Eurus has wood soles of alternating light- and dark-stained oak planks. Furthermore, each of the en suite baths in the staterooms features equally eye-catching stone soles. In fact, all four cabins have Zebrino marble, well named for its striped appearance, and Limestone marble. The family-oriented Eurus additionally shows off soft blues, greens, and pinks throughout her four decks.
Layout-wise, the megayacht follows some popular trends, such as featuring a main-deck master suite. Two VIP staterooms are among the guest cabins, too. In addition, the four-person crew and the captain have two helm stations from which to choose. Since one is on the sundeck, that probably will get a good amount of use.
One nice surprise is on Eurus, however. The galley, on the main deck, will turn out more than just tasty meals. The owner requested a mini wine cellar in here as well.
Eurus’ delivery comes in the midst of a big moment in Benetti’s history. It’s finishing work on its largest-ever megayachts, each exceeding 328 feet (100 meters). Benetti has therefore nicknamed this period its “giga season.”
