Benetti has long enjoyed success with the designer Giorgio M. Cassetta, leading to a number of superyacht deliveries over the years. The shipyard is redefining some of the most popular steel and aluminum sizes, under the family name Benetti B.Century.
So far, the family includes five sizes, from 180 to 246 feet (55 to 75 meters, respectively). Each has sweeping styling flair from Cassetta’s studio, lending them signature Benetti looks. However, they’re not cookie-cutter. Rather, each of the megayacht models still has distinguishing exterior features.
For instance, the Benetti B.Century 55M comes in two different configurations: trideck and quadruple deck. While each has a terraced aft deck (below), the primary difference is the inclusion of an owners’ deck on the taller yacht. It further affords buyers a private alfresco area adjacent to the sleeping space, which of course is fully forward. The trideck, meanwhile, still allows for a comfortable main-deck master suite and a sundeck up top for all guests to enjoy.
The next size up, the Benetti B.Century 62M, is 201’8” (61.5 meters), with even more alfresco space, especially on the foredeck. Additionally, the deck can include a pool. Since the master suite is also adjacent, you can wake up to quite the view each morning. Accommodations overall are for 12 people in six staterooms.
Similarly, the 223-foot Benetti B.Century 68M (above) is for a party of 12, though in seven staterooms and with sizable volume, about 1,390 gross tons. Finally, as the queen of the fleet, the six-deck 75M introduces two features all her own. Specifically, they’re what Benetti calls a Pool Club and a Sea Club. The pool club (at top) occupies the main aft deck, sitting atop the Sea Club. The Sea Club is much like a traditional beach club, with fold-down platforms to three sides. It’s still usable with just the transom open, too.
Regardless of which model you choose, interiors are entirely available for tailoring to your tastes.
Finally, and akin to other Benettis like the B.Now series (including the recent delivery Iryna), the B.Century yachts can feature traditional diesels, diesel-electric propulsion, or propulsion with batteries.
