Launching Mega Yacht "Metis"
Benetti launched 63m M/Y "Metis" at its Livorno shipyard : A new jewel for the yacht maker!
An original and innovative yacht
"Metis", a 63 meters Full Custom yacht was made for a German owner. Built with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure, the five deck yacht’s distinctive feature is the innovative layout of the living areas and the owner’s apartment on the Upper deck, which covers a surface of over 160 square meters and is filled with natural light that floods in through huge glazed surfaces around its perimeter.
Giorgio M. Cassetta Design working in partnership with Benetti designed the flowing exterior lines. By designing very clean and soft volumes he wanted to realize the dynamic proportions of the yacht. Her character is defined by a long and vertical bow.
For the interiors, the London-based design firm Bannenberg & Rowell has introduced a new approach, heralding in an original asymmetrical layout. The beach club, the main saloon on the Main Deck and the lounge area on the Upper Deck are skewed 30 degrees with respect to ‘traditional’ layouts, revealing new vantage points from which to admire the sea view. The result is a ‘modern style’ yacht where bleached oak with leather inserts and carbon fibre are main elements. The interior decoration has been individually arranged and designed in cooperation with the German Designer Birgit Otte to create a luxury and fine living ambiance on board. On the Main Deck, in addition to the saloon containing relaxation and dining areas, there is a customised children’s playroom, twin cabin and adjacent nanny suite, while on the Lower Deck are the four big guest cabins and accommodation for a crew of 12, plus the aft beach club. On the top Bridge Deck, the helm station and connected captain’s cabin are forward, while an outside lounge area aft is furnished with a dining table, a bar, a jacuzzi and a sun lounging area.
International yacht building reputation“Benetti has confirmed its international yacht building reputation for excellence in quality and reliability, said the owner at the launch. The shipyard has successfully interpreted my desires and needs to perfection. I am particularly satisfied with the unique owner’s cabin, which represents the perfect example of customization and excellence”.
