  1. Benetti 63-meter superyacht FB265

    New superyacht hull FB265, currently under construction by Italian yacht manufacturer Benetti saw the light of day for the first time recently. Benetti moved the new hull to the finishing/outfitting building hall. Hull FB265 is located at the Benetti Livorno yard where she will stay until launch in 2014.

    Benetti's yachts are becoming larger and more diversed in design. In fact FB265 is the second largest superyacht currently in production. The other superyacht larger than her is the 90-meter (FB262) giant slated for 2015. FB265 features a steel hull and aluminum superstructure and the overall design looks reminiscent in a combination of two recent Benetti superyachts, "Nataly" (ex. 'Amnesia IV') and "Diamonds are Forever".

    Speaking of design, the new 63-meter superyacht is designed in-house at Benetti while the interior designer's name remains unknown at this point in time. She appears to have four internal decks and possibly a smaller sun deck. There's a straight bow like Nataly yet the superstructure and cascading aft decks resemble Diamonds are Forever. We can expect CAT series engines below decks with the ability to crank out a 16.5-knot top end speed. Launching of FB265 is set for early 2014.
