An American who has enjoyed cruising aboard other megayachts has a new contract to celebrate. Bearing the code name Project Fenestra, she is a 219’8″ (67-meter) megayacht taking shape at Benetti.
Longtime Benetti collaborator Giorgio M. Cassetta is responsible for styling. Meanwhile, naval architecture and interior design comes from in-house departments. Also known as Benetti FB278, her hull number, Project Fenestra is somewhat secretive, in terms of in-depth details. Regardless, the build team is disclosing some key facts so far.
For instance, the owner enjoys cruising with family, as well as fitness. Project Fenestra has spaces suited for both. For instance, the beach club will be a popular spot for family members to spend time together. It includes a bar, as well as a handy head. To make it even more welcoming, the design team created a side-opening terrace, complementing the aft platform. Also for the family, as well as for the owner himself, the sundeck includes a steam room and gym, plus a hot tub.
While family members can spread out among six staterooms below decks, the owner has an entire deck for private time, or intimate gatherings. Total square footage is 1,600 square feet (nearly 149 square meters). Among the features here: a lounge with a bar. The owner’s deck additionally boasts 180-degree views.
Among the six decks, perhaps one of the most noteworthy features, though, is the crew area. The owner of Project Fenestra firmly believes that crew accommodations should be on par with guest accommodations. Therefore, the 10 cabins will reflect soft goods and furnishings similar in quality. The floor space is noteworthy, too. The yacht devotes double cabins to not just the captain, but also the first officer and chief engineer.
Though the shipyard does not say when Project Fenestra will launch, it should be at least two years from now.
