  1. Benetti 47-meter hull 'FB502' megayacht in-build


    Italian yacht manufacturer Benetti has been kept busy with a myriad of yachts they have under construction across their many classes and ranges. One of them is the second 47-meter megayacht, hull FB502. You will remember hull FB501 which was the start of a new line of 47-meter yachts for Benetti, FB501 was later christened as "Imagination".

    The yacht presently under construction is the second vessel in this line, hence FB502. She features Naval Architecture by Benetti and the build is being supervised by Project Manager Jens Cornelsen. On the interior, she boasts a design by Rhoades Young Designs. If the first hull is anything to go by, FB502 should be 47-meters LOA, 8.80-meter BOA and have a draft of 2.70-meters. Full load displacement should be around 350-tonnes. If she is using twin MTU M90 16V 4000 engines, top speed will be around 24.5-knots with a range of 3,400 nautical miles at 12-knots. Benetti suggests that this hull should launch or be completed in June, 2013. FB503 is also in-build with expected launching in March 2014.
