Benetti launches 65-meter "Nataly"
Another Italian yacht manufacturer joins the list of successfully launched yachts in 2011. The latest yacht for Benetti was launched yesterday at the company yard in Livorno. The highly anticipated 65-meter hull which most knew as the "Amnesia IV" is the new launch. However, not too long ago, the yacht changed hands in a low-key fashion and now has a new name.
"Nataly" was built under the name Amnesia IV
and hull ID FB252. She has a design by all around by British design firm Redman Whiteley Dixon (RWD) and the Naval architecture is by Azimut-Benetti. She is white with black masked windows and mirrors what the renderings suggested.
Her full load displacement is around 1050 tonnes and was built in steel and aluminum. Maximum beam is a roomy 11.75-meters with a full draught of 3.00-meters. Accommodation in the modern contemporary interior is for ten in five staterooms. The crew of ten are also in five crew cabins. Classification is ABS. Nataly
mounts 2 CAT 3516B, 1,685 kW engines that run at 1,600 rpm. Top speed is 15 knots and she has a range of 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. Her fuel tanks are 160,000 LT capacity. Nataly
will keep her main tenders up front in custom garages flanked by flush-fitting shell doors. For more information:
