Benetti celebrated the keel laying of its latest custom 62-metre Benetti FB283 yacht last week, indicating that construction on the new vessel is well underway.
The project team consists of Nicola Nicolai Yacht Consulting & Project Management as owner’s rep, naval architects Van Oossanen and designer Giorgio Cassetta. Together the team fulfilled the owner’s brief for a custom yacht with four requirements: speed, silent running, autonomy and fun for the family. To achieve this, Benetti worked with the two designers to build a model with elegant exterior lines and modern interiors.
A tapering stern and a long bow in the Benetti FB283 yacht is designed to improve cruising performance. She will cruise comfortably at around 20 knots while having sufficient autonomy to cover long distances without stopping.
“Right from the outset we established a transparent and constructive relationship with the owner, which made it possible to define this exciting project in a wealth of detail. We’re very grateful for being given the freedom to envisage a project that will be a milestone for our firm,” said Giorgio Cassetta.
We are honored to have been entrusted with the management of a project with so many innovative features and challenging deadlines. I am thrilled to help the owner’s vision became real especially working with such an experienced shipyard and outstanding team of professionals,” said Nicola Nicolai of Nicola Nicolai Yacht Consulting & Project Management who acted as pre-purchase advisor and will also work as project manager.
