Benetti FB272 ‘Luminosity’ is a moving palace of glass with unparalleled views of every changing landscape. The Giga yacht spectacular exterior design exterior design is a collaboration between Zaniz Jakubowski, Andrew Langton and Giorgio M. Cassetta, while her interiors are entirely the work of Zaniz Jakubowski.
Benetti FB272 Luminosity interior
With over 800 square meters of exterior glass wrapping around the main decks, ‘Luminosity’ has become a record breaker for Benetti. 3-meter-high windows are entirely uninterrupted by structure, giving a floating appearance. A straight bow offers brilliant seakeeping credentials, while a huge forward deck area brings guests a thrilling vantage point from which to cruise and relax. From here, the main deck is a step lower, offering further dining and social spaces, sheltered and shaded by the graceful overhang of the beautifully styled superstructure.
The defining characteristic of FB272’s interiors are the huge 3-meter-high windows flooding spaces with light and providing a seamless connection with the outside world. A magnificent skylight at Sun Deck level fills the yacht with a longitudinal axis of light, cascading down the 18-meter staircase that passes through five of the yacht’s 6 decks, its polished steel and toughened glass giving the structure a sculptural yet floating appearance.
Within the sumptuously proportioned interior, an incredible variety of glazed surfaces creates a constant impression of shifting light, which enters the yacht from all angles. The materials and colors used in fabric, furnishings and fittings offer a continuity between indoor and outdoor spaces.
FB272 is powered by an innovative hybrid propulsion system with diesel-electric engines and two ABB Azipods connected to a specially developed battery pack. The advantage of this system is a vibration-free navigation in total silence: with such stable and soundless cruising, guests might hardly realize they are underway.
One of the largest yachts built by Benetti
One of the three 100m+ Giga yacht recently realised by the Italian yard the 107-metre long FB277 ‘Lana’, is truly a testament to Benetti’s commitment to championing a new era of large yacht building in Italy and the resounding success of the yard’s very first Giga season. Benetti’s in-house team created both the interior and exterior design of ‘Lana’, which has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, a beam of 14.4 metres and a gross tonnage of 3,900 GT. Stand out features such as a diesel-electric propulsion, a large swimming pool, helipad, spa and plenty of toys and tenders will make her one of the most exciting yachts on the scene.
Moreover ‘Lana’ draws on all the benefits of Benetti’s heritage in pioneering technology, notable design collaborations, unparalleled quality standards and last, but not least, the iconic elegance. Benetti FB277 can accommodate up to 12 guests across eight cabins, including 7 VIP rooms on the Main Deck. Located on the Wheelhouse Deck, the full-beam master suite is a highlight on board, with the generous suite featuring a luxurious contemporary design and two balconies providing magnificent ocean views.
In addition to a yacht crew of 34 to tend to guests’ every need, just some of the stand out features her guests can enjoy are a large swimming pool on the Sun Deck, a luxurious spa complete with hammam, gym and massage room, a grand piano and a touch-and-go helipad.
