About FB 275: Benetti reveales new renderings of the third 100m+ in a row

Following the recent launch of Benetti’s third gigayacht of over 100 metres and its longest yacht so far, 108-metre FB 275, the company has revealed more renderings of the vessel. During the weekend, she was lowered into the waters at Livorno facility for the first time, according to Yacht Harbour.

The superyacht’s exterior lines have been designed by British company RWD, while the interiors were developed by Benetti’s in-house team. She encompasses impressive 3,700 GT within a beam of 14,5 metres and a height of 30,4 metres. Her draft, meanwhile, makes 4,4 metres.

The launch of FB275 marks the culmination of the first part of our Benetti Giga Season, yet at the same time, begins a new era of building giants,

The five-deck yacht is trademarked with a cinema, gym, sauna, large heated swimming pool and an observation deck with seating area, with different options for al fresco dining. The bridge deck houses sun pads and a 1,5-meter firepit, while the owner’s deck is fitted with private dining and seating areas apart from those on the main deck. 

The foredeck offers storage to two tenders of 14 meters. Another 10-meter tender can be located in the yacht’s garage on the lower deck, with up to 8 jet skis.

Designed for long distances cruises with no need to refuel, FB275 features fuel tank with 345,000-litre capacity, ensuring a range of 6,500 nautical miles at 14 knots. Her top speed though amounts to 18,5 knots thanks to two MTU diesel engines of 2880 kW each.

An electric Schottel stern SPJ pump jet with 500 kW power gives the yacht fantastic manoeuvrability enabling the yacht cruise for short distances under only electric propulsion.

As it has been mentioned earlier, the launch marks the beginning of an outstanding year for Benetti, with three consequent 100-metre-plus premieres within 100 days. The series has started with the launch of FB 277 in December 2018 followed by the launch of FB 272 christened Project Zoza in February this year.
