  1. 50-meter Project 'Blake' In Build At Benetti
    The third unit in the new 50-meter Benetti '800' series is currently under construction being built on spec without an owner. The project name is 'Blake' and is following a similar process as the second hull which too was started without an owner but later sold. The third unit is being built with aluminium and fiberglass. The 800 series hull is actually made with fiberglass and a lightweight aluminium superstructure.
  2. This particular 50-meter's interior is designed by Bannenberg & Rowell who's aim was to maximize physical space and sense of space onboard in the guest areas. White and creams dominate the interior juxtaposed by high-varnished mid-toned wood cabinetry. Splashes of colour in many of the fabrics such as on the throw cushions and seating round out the overall look. Guest accommodation is on the lower deck with four cabins. A full beam master suite forward on the main deck and if needed, the private saloon on the upper deck can be converted into a VIP-grade cabin.
  3. The third hull will be powered by a pair of CAT C32 ACERT marine diesels that will run the vessel to a top speed in the region of 15-knots. The yacht is well advanced in construction and is expected to be completed in early 2018. Hopefully Project Blake will attract the eye of a prospective owner soon but it has the allure and appeal of being an easy purchase and not have to wait two years for the final product.
