[dropcap]B[/dropcap]enetti M/Y Mr Loui is the second model of the Mediterraneo 116’ built by the Italian yard. The 35.5-meter is a fiberglass and carbon fiber yacht belonging to the Classic range.
The exteriors are designed by Giorgio Maria Cassetta while the interior design is a creation by the Benetti Interior Style Department jointly with the owner’s architect Ezequiel Farca, who translated the owner’s requests into a project with extensive shared areas to enjoy with family and friends.
The Mexican Owner, met on the occasion of the Miami Yacht Show last February, received Mr Loui last October 31.
The main features of the sleek, streamlined exteriors are the large glazed surfaces, one of the points of strength of this project.
The special features of the outdoor settings include without a doubt the Sun Deck, which covers an area of over 80 square meters and has a continuous walkable surface almost 16 meters long, with two large dining spaces and large areas furnished with sun loungers, sofas, deckchairs and armchairs.
Concerning the interiors, the Main Deck has a roomy lounge area, consisting of spaces for dining and relaxing, with windows each three meters long that give a sense of continuity with the world outside. On this deck, the area towards the bow is given over to the Master Suite.
This setting too, which extends across the full beam of the yacht, features big panoramic windows.
At the owner’s request, a lift for four people connects all three decks on the boat.
The four guest cabins, all doubles, are on the Lower Deck. The two VIP cabins with double beds are forward, facing each other, while the two guest cabins have two sliding twin beds, plus pullman beds to accommodate two more people on board.
The engine room houses two CAT ACER C32 Rating D engines, each delivering 1,600 hp. The Top speed stands at 15 knots, while the cruising speed is 14 knots, and the yacht’s range at 10 knots is 3,000 nautical miles.
