The latest superyacht from the Benetti yard is the 60- meter steel and aluminum Formosa, with in-house exterior styling and an interior by Sinot Design Studio
Italian shipbuilding and boat building company Benetti, successfully launched its 60 metre FB255 superyacht Formosa, that had been sold in 2012 by Fraser Yachts to an Asian client. Fraser’s Jan-Jaap Minnema reported that the Letter of Intent for the new order was signed the day after the Hainan boat show. “We modified and re-written the technical specs, substantially changed the General Arrangements, decided the interior styling and negotiated the contract. This all in just over 30 days. It is typical for the Asian style of business: extremely efficient and fast!”
The five-deck, steel-hull yacht has 10.6-metre beam and an ample 1,060GT volume. Her layout includes a private owner’s deck, and Formosa accommodates 12 guests in six staterooms, looked after by 15 crew members. Exterior design and naval architecture is by Benetti’s in-house team, while the interior layout and design of the guest’s area were created by the Sinot Design Studio, in close collaboration with the owner. There are five suites for up to ten guests, with the whole deck made for the owner’s apartments. The captain plus a crew of 14 is available to see to all the guest’s needs.
The super yacht Formosa is powered by twin MTU 12V 4000 M53 engines, and promises to cruise at 15 knots, and with a 130,000-litre fuel capacity, she has a range of 5,000 nautical miles at an economical cruise speed.
