Benetti Announces New Projects at the Monaco Yacht Show

At a press conference during the recent Monaco Yacht Show, Benetti presented its new B.Now designs and the evolution of the builder’s B.Century family. It also announced the innovative 85-meter “Project ORO.”

The yard’s strategy rests on three main pillars: a tradition of craftsmanship, technological innovation and advanced process engineering, and partnerships with leading international naval design and architecture firms.

“We have invested heavily in R&D in recent years to develop new boats and the results are outstanding,” said Azimut|Benetti Group CEO Marco Valle. “Almost a month after the start of the new yachting season, a record-breaking 23 launches are planned—almost two a month. The prospects for the future are very positive. We began in September with the launch of a 50-metre B.Now and will conclude in August with the launch of a 68-meter B.Century. The order backlog is trending upwards, with new model deliveries planned until 2027.”

B.NOW

Sebastiano Fanizza, Benetti’s chief commercial officer, presented the most important features of Iryna (B.Now 50M), making her premier in Monaco, the B.Now 60M and the new B.Now 67M Oasis. “The B.Now family is a significant achievement for Benetti, comprising 50-, 60-, 67- and 72-meter models and now one of the brand’s bestsellers, with 20 units already sold.”
