Yep although I do not know where the refit was carried out...my guess would be at Benetti.
I thought it was " MY SISA " that got the darker hull ?
I could not find a Benetti named Lisa but did find My Sisa : Ship Photos that made the change to a blue hull.

As it relates to the fire aboard the 56-meter FB261
Benetti has released more details concerning this week's fire on board project FB261. Vincenzo Poerio, CEO of Azimut Benetti Megayacht division commented: "The sense of responsibility and the passion of the Benetti team, will make us learning from such an extreme case and reinforce the team commitment, to continue to build as we did in the last 140 years beautiful Benetti's sailing worldwide".
A series of events seems to be the cause of the fire:
1. A massive electrical storm affected Tuscany and in particularly Livorno's area that night.
2. The protection against extraordinary electrical shocks, including lightening strikes, in operation when a yacht is in commissioning, was not yet activated
3. There was no crew sleeping on board that night, no-one could hear the fire alarms.
Benetti has immediately taken drastic measures to avoid any other extreme case like this may happen in the future. The vessel will be taken out of the water soon, for full damage assessment.
Looks pretty bad!

From the way she is listing in the last photo it looks like it is going to take quite a lot of work to salvage this one!
Guess she was listing like that because of the water poured into the inside of the vessel to fight the fire. and since the water couldnt get back out, well.
First time I am seeing interior shots of the Benetti "I Dynasty"...

We have a say in Spanish: for each taste there is a color, which bassically means oh mine gott who ordered those interiors? But that is just my personal opinion.
Now we understand the difference between and interior decorator and an interior designer!
For that style it is a wonderful execution!!
I was thinking people would not like the interior.
We are all different, I have never liked that style on yachts. (Or in houses..)
I am probably among the more traditional and conservative ones here and I absolutely love the interior. They've managed to keep the rich woods and to lighten everything up with the ceilings and otherwise. I just think they found a great way to combine things.
"Cour di Leone" was finally sold!!!! She was on the market for quite a while.

Has there been any news of new custom launches? In particular, hull FB265? It says on Benetti's website that it was scheduled for February 2014 launch.
Benetti has launched a new 58m called Illusion I.
Probably the successor to a previous Benetti with the name "Illusion".
Was the original Illusion (now Wild Orchid 1) available for charter? I know she is available under her new name.
