Italy: Benetti Shipyard Splashes 4th Delfino 93’ Mega Yacht

On April 18th gathered audience and media members saw the technical launch at Viareggio of the 4th unit of the new Benetti Delfino 93’ – entry yacht of the Benetti Class range – an event held on the grounds of the Azimut-Benetti Group’s Lusben company, located adjacent to the Benetti shipyard’s headquarters.

Following the customary preliminary steps, including the traditional breaking of the bottle on the hull, the yacht was lowered into the water, a ceremony witnessed by Owner, technical personnel, workers, and all Benetti staff who oversaw outfitting and construction over the past several months.

Delfino 93’ represents a close link between Benetti innovation and history. The first motor yacht by this name was presented forty years ago at the 1969 Genoa boat show.

The entry yacht of the new Benetti Class range and the first to be launched, has been selected by SeaNet – one of the world’s leading companies in fractional yacht ownership at the international level – for offering its customers the ability to own a yacht in a way that’s tailored to their boating needs.

Superb navigational stability (thanks to the new electric fins), extreme care in the quality of construction, and superior benefits in terms of performance and low consumption, as well as significant reduction in noise and vibration and extensive technological features, such as the exclusive BEST platform (Benetti Exclusive Sea Technology), which integrates all of the electronic systems and on-board equipment, and the integrated wheelhouse, which is capable of merging the numerous navigational, telecommunications, and safety instruments, are what prompted SeaNet to put its trust in the building excellence of Benetti – for the past 13 years, the world leader in the construction of mega yachts – for the creation of the modern yacht.
