Benetti 183' "Galaxy" by Capt. Chuck Gnaegy This plush and aesthetically pleasing mansion-on-the-Med surveys the most dramatic vistas of the Sea itself – majestic hills, scenic ports and climactic skyline – while adding its own inimitable design aura of Italian excellence. Generated by Benetti’s Naval Architects, in league with her owner, Galaxy presents a first look at innovations which will lead the industry to new approaches. Benetti debuts its new Livorno, Italy, facility by launching a brand new face on yachting; making use of new materials and styling, slipping demurely ahead of staid tradition. While her stated purpose was to accommodate the owner’s family, she was also designed for selective charter – Galaxy is Lloyd’s and MCA classified. This duality of purpose led to several different approaches in her interior plan. For example, Galaxy’s accommodation plan includes her luxe owner’s suite on the main deck, the VIP stateroom on the upper deck, two double staterooms, and two twin cabins plus Pullman berths on the lower deck, for a total of 14 family/guest lodgings. Crew members number as many as 14-16, in eight cabins, consisting of the Captain’s stateroom on the upper deck, five cabins on the lower deck, and two cabins under the lower deck. Service and accommodations will vary according to the number of guests.
