Italy: Benetti Shipyard Launches First Classic Supreme 132’ Yacht

Italy - Benetti Shipyard Launches First Classic Supreme 132’ Yacht

The technical launch of the first Benetti Classic Supreme 132’ was held on Friday, May 4th at the Benetti shipyard in Viareggio, the construction location of the six composite models of the Class line — from 93 to 145 feet. Following the customary preliminary steps, the yacht was launched into the water, a ceremony witnessed by technical personnel, workers, and all Benetti staff who oversaw outfitting and construction over the past months.

A mark of design continuity – this new gem of technology and Italian style – springs from a project with exteriors designed by Stefano Righini and interiors by Francois Zuretti who, for this first boat and following the Owner’s indications to draw inspiration from a particularly contemporary style, creates a sober, elegant interplay between the oak natural shade, the warm wenge, diamond pattern leathers and hide.

The outfitting includes the most modern navigation systems developed by the Shipyard: from the innovative integrated wheelhouse to the exclusive BEST technology platform (Benetti Exclusive Sea Technology) integrating all onboard electronics and systems — the new Classic Supreme, among the different design solutions, offers also a gym-area on the upper deck, carving out an exclusive space for the Owner and his guests to further relax.

The Classic Supreme 132’ is not just a new model to complete the Benetti Class range; it is also the first model built and outfitted in the Lucca Dockyard, the company’s new 4200 m2 plus facility. Located adjacent to the historic site in Via Coppino, this facility can simultaneously handle production of three megayachts of up to 140 feet, thus effectively doubling the Shipyard’s current production capacity and concentrating production of the entire line in Viareggio.

By expanding its production capabilities, the Azimut Benetti Group is now taking strides to augment its presence at historical Italian sites with production facilities in Brazil and Turkey. This enables it to be closer to its customers in new boating markets, which, year after year, are becoming more and more important on the world competitive arena.

The technical launch marks the beginning of a long series of tests and inspections covering the hull, the engines and the on-board systems, which are designed to ensure impeccable standard for quality, technology, safety and reliability that distinguishes Benetti yachts worldwide. Outfitting and finishing will proceed according to the established production plan.

Port Finance International Mexico 2015

Given the successful gathering last June of our 1st Port Finance International Mexico & LATAM, PFI will be holding the 2nd Mexican & LATAM PFI Forum.

This conference is a meeting point to understand Mexicans ports current and future opportunities and find solutions to challenges.

Mexico’s port development and operations is currently thriving, with great opportunities of product and service provider companies to access high value opportunities.

Mexico’s Infrastructure investment has grown from 3% of GDP in 2000 to nearly 5% in 2012.

A National Program has been launched, devoting nearly £65 billion to help modernize and develop four leading ports, construct ten specialized terminals and grow Mexico’s cargo handling capacity by 60%.

There has been a £2.9 billion investment into expanding the port of Veracruz which will increase the port’s terminals from 18 to 28 and enhance its cargo capacity to 116 million tons.
