On February, 5 2019 Bennetti launched Project FB272, the largest superyacht in the brand’s history as of yet, built at their Italian shipyard in Livorno. The 107-meter yacht is set to become one of the 40 largest yachts in the world.
 
This news comes as Benetti is gearing up for a first in its history, the upcoming launches of 3, 100 meter plus new builds, which it has been working on for the past 4 years. These yachts will be the first from the Italian shipyard with a 3-digit length and are set to overcome the yard's current flagship, Philipp Green's 90-meter Lionheart.
 
With 3,800 GT of interior volume spread over 6 decks, the 107-meter yacht has a 15.2-meter beam. FB277, as it has been called throughout the build, was project managed by Imperial Yachts, which are also involved with 3 new-builds at Lurssen currently.
 
The exterior concept was developed by the group’s designer Giorgio Cassetta in a partnership with Azure Naval Architects, Zaniz Interiors and Reymond Langron Design. One of the distinctive features of FB272 are three-meter-high windows spreading the light indoors. The yacht offers a vast variety of dining and social zones incorporated into the superstructure. Helicopter landing pad with a fuelling station is accessible from a private deck.
 
According to Paolo Vitelli, Azimut Bennetti president, the building process took more than 2 million hours of work, delivered by over 100 suppliers. The construction also took over 500,000 meter of cables and 800 square meters of glass. ‘This iconic project has had a huge impact on local industry and can be truly pronounced as a wonderful achievement for the local community and ‘Made in Italy’ concept in general,’ he added.
