The second 140′ Benetti luxury motor yacht has been launched

The second 140′ Benetti Crystal was launched yesterday in Italy. So far this project has been identified only as hull number BY002, however we now know that she has been christened “Luna.” Her sister ship, “Johanna,” sea trialed last January to very pleasing results reaching speeds of 16 knots in excellent weather conditions a safe distance outside of the port of Viareggio. This series of yachts boasts a ergonomic and functional layout at the helm stations, that was custom developed by Benetti, to accommodate a “new-age” integrated bridge system which is highly technical and compact. These displacement models make for another milestone for Benetti which already have earned a name in custom and semi-custom mega yacht construction. The notable features of the Crystal series include large exterior areas and expansive windows to provide the interior with as much natural daylight as possible.

This latest launch will accommodate ten guests, with a main deck master suite and two double and two twin cabins on the lower deck, as well as space for seven crew. She is powered by twin Caterpillar C-32 engines which gives her a maximum speed of 15 knots, and a cruising speed of 12 knots with a range of 4,000 nautical miles. The interior was designed by Francois Zuretti and the exterior was styled by Stefano Righini. This 41.93 meter yacht will be delivered to her new owners for the upcoming yachting season.
