Benetti Yachts has one European debut and two worldwide model debuts scheduled for the Monaco Yacht Show in September.

The Tuscan yard will unveil the FB265 M/Y 11/11 and the FB255 M/Y Formosa to the world at the Sept. 23-26 show; the BF 203 M/Y H, the third unit of the Veloce 140-foot Fast Displacement series, will make its European debut.

The FB265 MY 11/11, a 63-meter megayacht, has a plumb bow, which allows it to cut through the water. There are two owner's cabins — one on the full-beam main deck and the other on the upper deck, with private access to the pool and solarium deck. Four guest cabins are on the lower deck, each with its own en-suite washroom.

The yacht is powered by two CAT 3512C engines developing 1,350 kW each, which gave her a top speed of 17 knots during her first preliminary sea trials.

The steel and aluminum hull of the Formosa FB255 superyacht has five decks and 60 meters of length overall, a beam of 10.6 meters and a displacement of 1,060 GT.

The guest area's layout and design were created by Sinot Design in close collaboration with the owner. Five suites for 10 guests are foreseen, with a complete deck given over to the owner's apartment. Fourteen crewmembers will assist the captain and look after the owner and guests.

The Formosa FB255, propelled by twin MTU 12V4000 M53 engines that develop 1,380 kW at 1,800 rpm, has a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots. While economy cruising at 12 knots, the FB255 has a range of 5,000 nautical miles.

The BF 203 M/Y H is the third yacht of the Fast Displacement Veloce 140-foot series. It is equipped with twin five-blade propellers and twin power plants developing 2,580 kW each, with a straight propeller shaft configuration.

The BF 203 M/Y's internal layout offers four guest cabins — two with twin beds and two queen size — on the lower deck. The owner's apartment is forward on the main deck.
