Ninth Benetti Crystal 140’ unit, launched in Viareggio
Last June 23 BY009, the ninth Benetti Crystal 140’ unit, a 42-meter superyacht in the Class product line, entered the water for the first time in Viareggio.
Introduced for the first time in 2011, this 42-meter long, 9-meter wide superyacht built from composite materials is the flagship in the Classic category. Offering plenty of space above and below deck, it meets the needs of a diversified clientele.
The owner is extremely satisfied: “The success of this project is a perfect example of everything Benetti represents as a brand worldwide, and it bears witness to the extraordinary quality of the products built by the shipyard. It will be a pleasure for me to navigate this yacht the world over, showing it off with pride.”
The layout extends over four decks, providing accommodation for 12 people in five cabins. Plus the full-beam master suite forward on the Main Deck, which is appointed with a private bathroom and offers an incredible 180-degree view of the sea thanks to long windows through which light floods into the interior.
The Main Deck is the true heart of the yacht and has a spacious living area linking the interiors and exteriors through a sliding glass door.
The layout of the stern area is highly original: the garage for the tender, jet ski and water toys has been moved forward and given a side entrance. This solution makes it possible to devote the entire stern to a huge beach area, completely free of all equipment.
The same rational management of space and the engine room also translates into big, welcoming guest cabins on the Lower Deck: on the left two sliding beds with pullman beds, and on the right a double cabin with an additional single bed. The same deck also accommodates the crew, while the captain’s cabin is on the Upper Deck, next to the bridge.
Two CAT C32 Acert engines give BY009 a range of over 4 thousand nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots. This makes it the ideal yacht for long, relaxing ocean cruises.
