Bennetti has been a pioneer luxury yacht builder since 1873 with some of the world’s most exclusive yacht designs afloat today. That said, our focus here is on 3 mega yachts code-named FB272, FB275 and FB277, all 3 over 100m in length and dubbed the 3 Giga yachts by the shipyard. FB272 is our story today, which demonstrates the huge scope of imagination and build capacity at the Italian shipyard. She features an advanced Lutron domotic system – approximately 500 kilometres of the cable run across her hull and superstructure, providing masses of connection with the outside world: including the huge windows 3 meters in height and the outstanding surface area of 800 square meters of window glass.
On the back of the success of the Atlantis 51, Azimut is due to premier the widely acclaimed Atlantis 45 the successor to the Atlantis 43, a very popular sports cruiser that sold over 140 yachts in four years. The new 45 takes winning features from the 43 such as the Volvo IPS propulsion and takes successful design cues introduced by the Atlantis 51: the upper part of the stem rises vertically, partially stretching forward to boost the dynamics of a boat with a strong sporty character, while its hull windows stretch along the entire side, bringing out the sharpness of this yacht’s contours and its sporty look. Can the new 45 top the record held by the 43? Let’s take a closer look.
