Entrepreneur and international designer Henrik Fisker, the founder of Henrik Fisker Design, and superyacht builder Benetti are joining forces to create a series of innovatively designed 164-foot superyachts.

The collaboration is focused on a new superyacht with naval architecture by Benetti. The yacht will be designed in California and built at the Benetti facilities in Livorno, Italy.

The concept will integrate a new platform developed by Benetti’s engineering team with Fisker’s sporty exterior and interior designs.

Fisker, a Danish luxury designer, is pioneering a new design concept to enhance and optimize the onboard experience by using more space on the superyacht for hosting and leisure. The design will seek to reduce unused space.

The exterior will be made up of lightweight carbon fiber and other materials, provide ocean views from all major cabins and use reclaimed wood, integrated solar panels and optional hybrid power.

The interior will feature advanced and sustainable materials and state-of-the-art technology for automated controls and optimal power management.

Onboard amenities will include a beach club, spa, several bars, a pool and sunbathing areas on multiple decks. A future owner will welcome 12 guests in six cabins, looked after by 11 crewmembers with comfortable staff quarters.
