  1. 90-meter Superyacht "Lionheart" Launches At Benetti
    Italian yard Benetti Yachts recently launched their first superyacht of 2016. The new yacht is also their largest build representing a 90-meter superyacht built for a repeat client of the yard. Her name is "Lionheart" and those of us who follow these yachts very closely would know who she belongs to. However, we do not disclose names here but we can tell you that she is the successor to the owner's 63-meter, 2006-built Benetti formerly of the same name. That yacht is presently called "Lioness V". As for the new yacht, she was built under hull ID FB262 and even though the identity of the yacht is well known, information about the yacht itself isnt't.
  2. The massive yacht is now the largest built by the Italian yard slightly Trumping (no pun) the 86-meter "Kingdom 5KR". Built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure the new Lionheart represents very stylish and sweeping lines. The owner's last yacht was nice in design but more of the typical yacht you expected from them at the time. The new yacht is leaps and bounds ahead on styling! Above the waterline, the new Lionheart rises four full decks. The previous 63-meter has a lower, main and upper with an open sun deck. The 90-meter yacht has that with an enclosed area on the sundeck midships -likely to be where a gym might be-. Nothing else is known for sure about this build but she does seem to have nice attributes like the built-in alcove-like balcony off what we presume to be a full-beam master suite on the forward main deck. There also seems to be a tender garage forward of the suite in the bow. That would lend to the assumption that the fancy-laid glass on the aft lower deck is an expansive beach club. The new Lionheart will easily have trans-Atlantic range with a top speed near 16-knots.
