  1. Three Luxury Yachts On Display At 2015 Monaco Yacht Show (MYS)
    Italian manufacturer Benetti Yachts said they are displaying three luxury yachts at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) coming up in September. The three motoryachts are all brand new yachts too ranging from the largest at 63-meter custom down to a unit of the Veloce 14o series. Looking at the yachts closer, the 63-meter custom superyacht "11/11", 60-meter "Formosa" and the 42-meter "H" will be on display at this prestigious yachting event. H is having her European debut at the show while both 11/11 and Formosa are making their world debuts.

    The 63-meter mega yacht, built as FB265 has a special design and aesthetic factor that you notice immediately: her plumb bow, which allows for an increased dynamic tendency, literally cutting through the water. 11/11's interiors are just as original. Her designated layout favors two spacious and comfortable owner's cabins, one on the full beam main deck, the second on the upper deck with private access to the pool and solarium deck. The four guest cabins are on the lower deck, each with its own en-suite washroom. Performance, with two CAT 3512C engines developing 1350kW each, gave her a top speed of 17-knots during her first preliminary sea trails. Scenic effects and nighttime illumination are assured while at anchor with 46 lights placed below the waterline of the superyacht.
  2. The steel and aluminum hull of the Formosa built as FB255 – whose exterior styling and naval architecture were done entirely by Benetti – has five decks, with 60-meters of length overall, a beam of 10.6-meters and a displacement of 1,060 GT. The guest area's layout and design were created by Sinot Design, in close collaboration with the owner. Five suites for ten guests are foreseen, with a complete deck given over to the owner's apartment. 14 crew members will assist the captain and look after the owner and guests. The Formosa , propelled by twin MTU 12V4000 M53 engines that develop 1,380kW at 1.800rpm has a top speed of 16-knots, with a cruising speed of 15-knots. While economy cruising at 12-knots the FB255 has a range of 5,000 nautical miles. The third yacht is of the Fast Displacement Veloce 140’ series with the name H and is characterized by a new hull design that makes the D2P (Displacement to Planing) hull even more efficient. The Wave Piercer is a bulb mounted on the bow that comes into play when the yacht reaches 17 or 18-knots. The Wave Piercer travels just below the surface at slow speed, but once the vessel reaches the proper speed the Wave Piercer emerges and increases the effective waterline length, giving the yacht better performance and efficiency. Fuel efficiency increases by about 10% at a given speed, while with the same power there is an increase of about 10%, therefore allowing higher speeds.
