The famed Italian superyacht builder launches the third vessel in its Classic Supreme Series
By Capt. Ken Kreisler
In the world of luxury boat building, the name Benetti carries a certain cache with it that resounds with elegance born of a high level of expertise and pride of craftsmanship. And no wonder. The yard has been in continued service since its founding in 1873 by Lorenzo Benettii, making it one of the oldest builders in the world.
The third Benetti Classic Supreme 132 (Hull# BS003) was launched in February 2013 in a grand ceremony that included all those who were involved in her build and outfitting including the yard’s technicians, workers, and staff. Arcon Yachts also collaborated on the production of this 40-metre yacht, which will be delivered in April 2014. It is the third Benetti Classic Supreme 132 in less than two years; BS003 is part of the Benetti “Class Range”, line of composite displacement yachts from 93 to 145 feet.
The Classic Supreme 132 – BS003 picks up on all the line’s typical features and adds truly unique touches like its “classic-modern” interiors. Ensuring design continuity, the exteriors of this new jewel of Italian style and technology are by Stefano Righini, with interiors by François Zuretti.
Classic Supreme 132 is 131+ft/40.20m long and 26+ft/8.18m wide; it can accommodate 10 guests in 5 cabins, plus room for the crew. It is equipped with two MTU 12V2000 M72 (1080 kW)@2.250 rpm motors enabling it to reach maximum speeds of 15.5 knots.
