Benetti yachtmaster 2018: record attendance for the italian leg
The Delfino 95’ “Christella II”, the first yacht to be built in the Class displacement product line, has been delivered to its owner. An exterior design featuring flowing lines and extensive glazed surfaces is matched by remarkably spacious and liveable interiors.
At a ceremony held in Viareggio, the owner from the Czech Republic received the Delfino 95’ “Christella II”, a yacht with voluminous interiors and exterior lines designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta.
Benetti General Manager Christos Ramnialis expressed his satisfaction with this new delivery, commenting: “The Delfino 95’ follows on from a series of major successes for Benetti. It is a product that retains the winning features of previous models, adding to them unprecedented innovations and points of view.”
While the defining characteristic of the Delfino 95’ is without doubt its livability, other unusual design features are the transformation of all functional elements into decorative componentsand an original light design, drawing on the collaboration of UK-based design firm Aqualuce.
The interiors have warm colours and atmospheres: the main variety of wood used is canaletto walnut selected without flaming, interspersed with printed leather panels. The flooring in communal areas is parquet too, while carpet has been chosen for the cabins. The marble used is Eramosa.
The Lower Deck has four double cabins for guests, two with double beds and two with twin beds. Accommodation is provided for five crew members.
The Main Deck features classic shapes and settings. The owner’s cabin, almost 7 meters wide and 3.2 meters long, has a separate wardrobe and a bathroom with a spacious shower cubicle. The main lounge stands out for the two huge glazed surfaces that extend over its entire length, on either side, and the sliding door that connects it with the outdoor space.
The positioning of the entire command station on the top level allows the service area to be concentrated on a single deck, making it more practical for crew members to perform their work and providing more privacy. The Upper Deck contains a rest and relaxation area, a sun lounging area, the helm station and a dining area with opening roof and mood lighting, plus an open air living space in the stern. The Sun Deck, unprecedented on a boat this size, is furnished with two sofas.
The garage can accommodate a tender up to 4.40 meters in length and the yacht is fitted with two 1000hp Man V8 engines, driving it to a top speed of 14.5 knots.
