This Benetti Crystal 140 was designed in “a colonial atmosphere with an African mood,” the company said.

This Benetti Crystal 140 was sold to an owner who is new to Benetti.

Benetti has launched the Crystal 140 BY006 M/Y Equus for a European owner.

Launched in the presence of her owner and friends on March 15, the Crystal 140 is a semicustom yacht in the Class range. The company has sold six of the 140-foot models since it was introduced in 2011.

The Equus was purchased by an experienced owner who is new to Benetti.

“Her launch once again confirms the success of the semicustom Crystal 140-foot model, surely the most spacious yacht in her category,” said Benetti CCO Fabio Ermetto in a statement.

“This strong point, coupled with timeless design and a quality and level of comfort unique for her category, are the perfect mix for this design. And thanks to our order backlog we are able to offer exceptionally rapid delivery times, using our “on-spec” system. Hull No. 7, to be delivered in December 2016, is an example of this rare opportunity.”
