Almost a month after the Asia Boating Awards 2019, where M/Y “Spectre” won the “Best Custom-Built Yacht” prize, the iconic 69-meter Benetti wins in London another prestigious new award. A symbol of Made in Italy excellence, with a unique and inimitable design, M/Y “Spectre” is back on the top step of the podium at the World Superyacht Awards in the category “Displacement yachts between 500 and 1,999 tonnes”.
The judges of Boat International – one of the world’s most highly respected yachting magazines – were won over by the exteriors designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta and the interiors by the Benetti Interior Style Department. M/Y “Spectre” is also a worthy winner of the award because of its sporty performance, the cutting edge technology of the hull by Mulder Design, and Total Ride Control by Naiad Dynamics1, as well as for its build quality and cruising comfort.
Moreover, the dynamic exterior design of “Spectre” accommodates spacious interiors by Benetti’s Interior Style Department, which has created a modern yacht embellished by steel detailing and sculpted glazed surfaces. The atmosphere conjures up the mood of 1930s Art Deco found in New Orleans and Florida, which draws its inspiration from late 19th century French Liberty style.
Benetti’s Chairman Paolo Vitelli made the following comment on this latest achievement: “I feel extremely proud to be Chairman of Azimut-Benetti Group, once again recognized as the largest megayacht producer in the world for 19 years now. Benetti is receiving this prestigious award for Spectre and in the meantime is completing 3 Giga yachts of more than 100 mt. We are living a sparkling sales season and hosting great events all over the world. These are great achievements with which I happily celebrate the 50th Anniversary of my Group.”
