Benetti unveil new project

The Benetti Mediterranean 116′ is the latest model to be unveiled by the Italian shipyard.

The 35.5 metre superyacht is a new model for the Displacement Class range

“The 116′ completes the Gamma Class range while at the same time introduces renewal and modernizing influences to the lines of a few of our most successful models; this is confirmed by the numbers: 18 contracts signed in the last twelve months” said Benetti’s CCO, Fabio Ermetto. “In the coming months we expect a significant commercial success, even though the success of the 116′ is already confirmed with a signed contract for hull number 1, and with hull n°2 under construction”.

This announcement comes a few days after Benetti announced the sale of their 49 metre FB702, Zafiro. The shipyard have also signed contracts for a 57 metre FB271 and a 66 metre FB269.
