First Crystal 140 launched by Benetti
Italian yacht builder Benetti recently launched the first hull in the new Crystal 140-foot series. The luxury yacht is expected to be handed over to her owner(s) early in the new year. The Crystal 140 has a classic yet contemporary appearance as showcased by the pen of Stefano Righini. The paint scheme to the design is the expected white hull and superstructure with black masked windows.
On the interior, the concept and styling for the Crystal 140 was planned by François Zuretti. Benetti worked the styling for the crew areas of the yacht. There is sufficient accommodation to sleep up to ten lavished guests. The arrangement also provides quarters for up to seven crew members.
The Crystal 140 has been fashioned from GRP materials making a relatively lighter platform as compared to other materials. In fact, she is expected to weigh in at 'only' 375 tonnes at full-displacement. She mounts twin CAT C32 Acert diesels expected to create a top speed 15 knots with cruising marked at 14 knots. A range in the region of 4,000 nautical miles at 12 knots is also expected. Benetti successfully launched the first hull in a new model series and helps assure the notion of a successful future.
