    Looks like they are launching a new 60m or so yacht. I've seen a couple photos but that's it so far.

    This one went by under the radar. The 59-meter "Wind" has been renamed "Galkynysh" apparently. She was built in 2007 by Benetti in Italy. She is not available for charter it appears and there is news suggesting she was purchased by the Government of Turkmenistan but that is not verified.

    The 67-meter "SeaSense" is expected to be displayed at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show (MYS). For those who may not know, SeaSense is a brand new Benetti designed by Cor. D Rover.

    We still haven't seen that many photos of her yet. She seems to have a more explorer type of look.

    Just looked it up and I agree with you that it has more of a explorer type look to it. It will be interesting to see more photos of her.

    Benetti launched this new model, the Oasis 135 at the recently concluded Cannes Yachting Festival. It isn't just a concept, the hull is already under construction.

    Benetti has announced the sale of the first unit in the new BNow series which itself was announced at the recently concluded Monaco Yacht Show (MYS). The BNow series is coming in four sizes (50, 55, 63 and 68-meters) and all can be customized to a large degree by the owner. It is said that this line is the first under-500GT full-displacement that is fully customizable. This first hull is for a repeat customer of the yard.

    Does anybody remember Trumps first wife? After the Trump Princess was gone and they separated, I thought she (first ex) picked up her own Benetti.
    I remember a turbo fire and never heard another thing about that boat or her (ex) again.
    Is it or she (she or it) still around?

    Ivanna purchased a 98' Cantieri De Bahia with part of the divorce proceeds and promptly named it "Ivanna" & that apparently didn't sit well with the Donald that the brokerage firm that handled the sale of Nabila / Trump princess now sold his ex a yacht. Bahia had produced many 50 to 70 ft. open type vessels but this was their first attempt at a raised bridge M.Y. of this LOA
    Triple MTU 8v396 TB 92 with numerous exhaust system problems between the three motors. Center motor flooded back through the outboard units etc. Law suites were filed within six months of purchase. The vessel had many problems but the major one was the exhaust system that continuously failed but never was re-engineered correctly. Just a lot of bad decisions and frugality like never installing a Atlas or similar system for this 50 cycle vessel that ran on two little Cummins -Onan gens for years at the dock. One of the twin 2004 hurricanes placed the vessel in the back yard pool of a well known sugar baron in Palm Beach with the fins and struts penetrating through the bottom into the interior and tankage. Starb side of vessel flooded where she lay on her side for several weeks till a crane and barge could remove her. Lloyds of London hired us a year after the vessel sat shrink wrapped to work with the owner and put the vessel back together for the insurance claim. Between the Lloyds surveyors, attorneys and N.Y. it was truly an experience to put it mildly. She was sold and was renamed "LaDiva" and was deemed a total constructive loss after a exhaust fire in West Palm Beach.
