If you’re a motorbike enthusiast, you have something in common with the owner of Benetti FB270, a.k.a. Triumph. He’s an aficionado of Triumph Motorcycles. Actually, he’s more than that. He’s an avid collector—so much so that one is a prominent part of the superyacht’s décor. It hints at how Triumph is more than a casual cruiser. In fact, she’s for the owner and guests to spend long periods of time onboard throughout the year.
Delivered last year, the 213-footer (65-meter) employs the same technical platform as Metis, which saw delivery in 2019. Therefore she’s engineered for a range exceeding 4,700 nautical miles at 12 knots. Between that performance and her six decks, including her sundeck, Triumph beckons to go boldly across the oceans.
The onboard ambience is just as bold, with a museum-like display of photos from renowned photographers. For instance, several of David Yarrow’s black-and-white works hang in the master office and master suite (above). The suite, by the way, is a palatial 1,399 square feet (130 square meters), further having an alfresco terrace. The owner of Triumph, with Green & Mingarelli Design, purposely chose a light-tone backdrop to allow these works to take center stage.
There’s a decidedly luxe look overall onboard, with marbles, Lalique glass, and fur standing out. Additionally, the custom carpeting has a pattern echoing the lines of desert sand dunes. Interestingly, there’s also an emphasis on greenery. Plants dot areas like the saloon (above) and even the beach club (top), which is upwards of 754 square feet (70 square meters).
When the owner invites guests aboard, the formal dining area will host special meals. As much as it’s in the traditional location forward of the saloon, however, Triumph isn’t all that traditional here. In fact, the dining area can double as a movie theater.
Further breaking with tradition is a main-deck VIP suite. Then again, given the other special touches behind Triumph, it’s perfectly in line with her ethos.
