Italian yard Benetti has launched the third hull in its Mediterraneo 116 superyacht range and christened it Botti, with delivery expected on 30th April 2018.
The 35.5-metre (116-foot) luxury displacement yacht features exterior design by Italian designer Giorgio M. Cassetta, while the interiors have been developed in collaboration between Benetti’s in-house team and architects Radcya, who were chosen specifically by the owner to assist with furnishings and fabrics.
According to Benetti, Botti’s interior styling is bright and ambient, bringing together wide-open spaces with plenty of natural light.
Her main deck houses a comfortable lounge, a dining area and an American bar for relaxation and entertaining on board. Above, the skylounge contains a large sofa, a 75-inch TV and a games table that seats four people, while the centre of the bow on the upper deck boasts a Jacuzzi and fully personalised sun-lounging space.
Accommodation is for 10 guests split across five staterooms, including a full-beam master suite in the main deck forward, plus two VIP staterooms and two twin cabins in the lower deck bow. Meanwhile the crew quarters house seven staff on board.
Powered by twin diesel 1400hp engines, Botti has a top speed of 15 knots with comfortable cruising at around 14 knots. At an economical 10 knots, she has a range of 3,200 nautical miles.
