Benetti Giga Season: Chapter Three
The Launch of Giga Yacht FB275
Benetti completes the third and final chapter of the first part of its Giga Season with the launch of 108-meter FB275. 108-meter steel hull has a beam of 14.5 meters with a draft of 4.4 meters. Her superstructure has been built in aluminium, and her displacement is 3,600 tonnes. Created with the scope to cruise the oceans for thousands of miles without the need to refuel, FB275 has a fuel tank with a capacity for 345,000 litres, enabling her to achieve a range of 6,500 nautical miles at 14 knots. The yacht’s exterior lines were designed by British firm RWD, with Benetti’s in-house team creating the interior. For just over four months the eyes of the world have been turned to Livorno, where Benetti has surpassed itself with the launch of three epic yachts. Last December, 107-meter FB277 was launched, followed in February by FB272, another over 100m yacht, and now, completing this trilogy of staggering yachts, 108-meter FB275 has been launched. Italian yacht building has never before seen the likes of such a period of immense productivity and the accomplishments of Benetti mark a new era for the shipyard in which it will compete with the builders of the very largest private yachts in the world.
