Benetti Sail Division 98-foot 'Logica' series
Benetti Sail Division is known as a builder of motor yachts in steel and aluminum. They are set to start construction of the first unit of a new series, the Logica series. The first hull is just under 100-feet long and is known as the BSD98' Logica. The new vessel is being built to a design by Luca Brenta.
This BSD98' will be able to carry and sleep eight guests under double occupancy of the four staterooms. However, a further two can be accommodated if desired. Sleeping berths for four crew members will be provided.
She should be powered by twin MAN D 2842 LE 413 main engines expected to produce a top speed near 14.5 knots. The range at high cruising speed is in the region of 1,500 nautical miles but at an economic cruising speed of 10 knots the range is further extended to over 3,000 nautical miles. Engineering work has already been completed on the first unit and full construction will get underway in earnest with completion envisioned for 2012. For more information:
