The project, which is due to be delivered in 2019, was launched on 18th December.
She will be available for charter from mid-2019 exclusively through Imperial, which also acted as owner’s representative and build supervisor during her construction.
Following the launch, Imperial has revealed new information about Benetti’s first 100-plus-metre superyacht. She is constructed from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, with a maximum beam of 15.2 metres.
Billed as boasting an “elongated and linear profile”, the superyacht blends a “contemporary and minimal design” with a “tasteful interior decoration”, furnished with bright furniture and wide windows.
Benetti and Pierluigi Ausonio are responsible for the naval architecture, while Benetti’s in-house designers have overseen the exterior and interior design. Key features on board include “a breathtaking beach club with Hammam, touch and go helipad and giant pool on the sun deck,” according to Imperial director Julia Stewart.
"Project FB 277 marks an important step in Imperial history by being one of the most exclusive vessels available for charter. This milestone shows the positive influence of our young but growing company to the superyacht industry, which is behind some of the most exciting superyacht deliveries of the last decade," she said.
"Project FB 277 represents the utmost luxury for all superyacht passionates looking for a tailor made charter journey."
Power comes from a diesel electric propulsion system for a top speed of 18.5 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots. Accommodation is for up to 12 guests across eight cabins, while 18 cabins will house up to 32 staff.
Imperial has confirmed it is already open to receive pre-bookings for the Mediterranean summer charter season.
The remaining two in-build 100-plus-metre Benetti yachts are on course to launch in 2019, the yard announced.
