On the 14th of March, Benetti has announced the launch of the third hull in the Mediterraneo 116′ series, Christened BOTTI. The 35.5m/116ft luxury displacement yacht is built with a fiberglass hull and carbon fiber superstructure and is due for delivery at the end of April.
The streamlined exteriors are designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta and the interiors are the work of Benetti’s Interior Style Department in collaboration with Radyca, who was chosen personally by the owner for selecting furnishings and upholstery.
Top quality fabrics, warm-toned wood and soft lighting create a relaxing and ambient interior. The main salon provides guests with a large American bar to serve guests seated at the lounge or at the formal dining table. Above, the skylounge has a plush sofa, a 75″ TV and a games table to seat four.
The upper deck aft has a grand dining table to seat up to 10 guests. On the center of the foredeck there is a massive Jacuzzi and a space for lounging in the sun. An additional space for resting in the sunshine can be found on the sundeck stern, and the foredeck section has plenty of sun loungers, sofas and deck chairs.
