Benetti Yachts Launches Megayacht, “Mary-Rose”, Another Fine Yacht in the Delfino 93 Series
Another megayacht launch splashes into the water at the Benetti Yachts Viareggio facilities in Italy. She is the second Delfino 93 megayacht of that new series. The first debuted the 2010 Cannes Boat Show.
The construction of Mary-Rose is composite in nature. Her interior-which is by yacht designer, Carlo Galeazzi, plays host to 10 guests. Her top speed is dialed in at 14 knots with cruising a few knots slower. Her range at 12 knots is expected to be 1,500 nautical miles.
Mary-Rose has a number of special features that the owner asked for including, a modern audio-distribution system, allowing optimal enjoyment of music selections both inside and outside; on the sundeck alone, there are 6 subwoofers.
She is also equipped with an external LED lighting system, RGB WHITE, an innovative technology that enables illumination of exterior areas in over 30 combinations of colors and tones and, varying with the chromatic appearance, makes it possible to have optimal lighting and atmosphere at all times in any light conditions. http://www.benettiyachts.it
Trinity Yachts Receives Contract for 120′ High Speed RPH SuperyachtTrinity Yachts announced a construction contract for a high-speed, 120′ Raised Pilothouse Motoryacht for an experienced American yachtsman.
“The owner is hopeful that the design and performance of this yacht will inspire other American yachtsmen to step forward and place orders now so that manufacturing jobs can be kept in the United States during these difficult times for the yachting industry,” Trinity Yachts said in a statement.
This newest Trinity Yacht will have a contemporary exterior and will be classed by ABS with a top speed of 24 knots; its range will exceed 2,500 miles at 10 knots.
With the normal cruising grounds being the U.S. East Coast and the Bahamas, the superyacht’s draft is being designed at 5’5″ in half-load condition. The owner also is a racing enthusiast, and the port-specific draft design will allow the vessel to berth in Daytona Beach, Florida when the owner is attending events at Daytona International Speedway.
Her owner is hopeful that the design and performance of this megayacht will inspire other U.S. yachtsmen to place orders with American yacht-builders so the manufacturing jobs can be kept in the United States.
The megayacht’s arrangements below decks will be divided into 5watertight compartments. Owners and guest accommodations will consist of a full-beam owner’s cabin and 3 guest staterooms. The owner’s stateroom will feature a king size berth with His and Hers ensuite bathrooms and a large walk-in closet. All guest cabins will have private full baths with 2 cabins having queen size berths and one cabin having two twin berths as well as a Pullman berth. Forward of the watertight bulkhead separating guest and crew areas will be 3 crew cabins and 3 full heads for a crew of five.
Main deck arrangements will consist of an air-conditioned exterior aft deck with full wet bar, dining table and seating for 8. Her main salon, which is accessed through sliding glass doors, also features a full wet bar, entertainment center, L-shaped custom sofas and lounge chairs. The open formal dining is forward of the main salon and gives her owners and their guests full benefit of the views from the large Main Salon windows and aft glass doors.
There is a day head or powder room on the port side and formal entrance for the owner and guests to starboard. The galley occupies the forward area of the superstructure and is designed for entertaining and informal dining for up to 9 people. This arrangement allows for large windows port and starboard, an island for prepping and serving as well as bar stools for those “foodies” who enjoy watching the chef prepare meals as much as the actual dining experience.
The sun deck layout is still in the design stage but it is anticipated it will have large riding seats forward, port and starboard, with a full helm station on the starboard side. Access will be on centerline from the pilothouse. The sun deck will also be equipped with 2 large sun pads, a full wet bar and a dining table with seating for up to 8 people. Aft on the sun deck will be a davit to handle her yacht tender and personal watercraft.
There will also be seating for guests on the foredeck which is easily accessible due to the full walk around main deck design. A set of stairs will lead down to the exterior aft deck which also features easy access by 2 sets of stairs to the swim platform.
Power and ships systems will be state-of-the-art. The lazarette and engine room will be accessed through a watertight door in the transom as well as from the main deck (port side) when at sea. Her Engine Room will house twin MTU 16v2000 main engines rated at 2,600 hp each, driving 5-bladed propellers via 5” propeller shafts and ZF gearboxes.
A 100hp bow thruster will assist her captain when handling the yacht in tight quarters and electrical power will be supplied by 2 Northern Light 65kW gen sets. To ensure the owner and guests remain comfortable while aboard, there will be 24 tons of air conditioning, 2 1,400 gallon per day water makers and active fin stabilization to enhance the stability of the yacht when at sea.
The hull design will be a modification and a further refinement of the 26’ (7.92m) beam hull design that Trinity Yachts has used successfully on 4 previous yacht projects.
