Benetti said its new 206-foot full custom steel and aluminum yacht is at an advanced stage of construction.

Work recently got underway at the company’s Livorno shipyard to join the superstructure to the hull.

Giorgio M. Cassetta has done the exterior design of the yacht. The layout and interior decor were commissioned from Bannenberg & Rowell.

A beach area has three points of access to the water at the stern and on either side. The interior spaces allow for 12 guests in six cabins.

The yacht is available for sale with delivery in November 2018.

“On-spec production over 50 meters is perfectly aligned with the shipyard’s new build and sales strategy, which aims to speed up delivery for all those clients who want a custom yacht in a relatively short time frame, while continuing to enjoy extensive customization potential,” Benetti CCO Fabio Ermetto said in a statement.

“Project Balance is indeed a perfect example of this business model, offering the chance to a client to enjoy his 63-meter yacht in just 24 months.”
