[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he 47-meter custom mega yacht FB703 M/Y “Bacchanal” with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure has been delivered to its owner, after its launch this summer at Benetti’s Viareggio shipyards. Benetti designed the yacht’s understated, elegant exterior lines, while the interiors are a joint effort by owner-chosen architect Mauricio Gómez de Tuddo and the Benetti Interior Style Department, resulting in a design that has both international allure and a strong Made in Italy imprint, as is clearly defined by the choice of brands like Minotti, Flexform, Giorgetti, Rimadesio, Poltrona Frau and Exteta.
The yacht is 46.95 meters long, with a draught of 2.32 meters and a gross tonnage of almost 440 tonnes.
The intentionally sleek and essential exterior lines, designed in their entirety by Benetti, give the M/Y “Bacchanal” an elegant style underpinned by sophisticated simplicity.
At the delivery ceremony, the owner commented: “After my first Benetti in 2015, I came back to work with a team that on my opinion realises one of the best yachts in the world. I’m happy that everything is the result of a masterfully orchestrated teamwork and all my ideas and wishes were welcomed.”
The layout is spread across 4 decks, all featuring a deliberately uniform approach requested by the owner, which cancels out the boundaries between interior and exterior. 6 cabins, including the owner’s suite, provide accommodation for 12 people, with 5 cabins for 7 crew members.
The safety equipment on board M/Y “Bacchanal” includes a 3D sonar system to identify bodies in the sea and provide information about any obstacles up to and over 500 meters from the yacht.
FB703 is powered by two MTU 12V engines and cruises at a top speed of 15.8 knots, with a range of 5,900 miles at 10 knots, allowing it to make transatlantic crossings.
