SuperYacht of the Week: Mylo - a modern classic by Benetti
By Maarten Janssen
A bright and calm sensation, a breath of fresh air. This best describes the atmosphere on board Mylo, a Benetti Classic launched last July by the Viareggio shipyard. Mylo (hull BC109) features an exciting new fashion style for Benetti, until now unseen in the Classic series.
The minimalist style on board Mylo is stressed by the clean lines of the interior- and the exterior areas of the yacht. With the ship's main tender and toys stored in the stern garage, Mylo offers three distinct exterior spaces, divided over the main- upper- and sundeck. The latter features a square Jacuzzi and sun loungers, whilst the other decks offer ample space for shaded lounging and dining.
The owners, a young couple from Lebanon, chose to reinterpreted the François Zuretti interior design into a minimalist and modern style. The result is an amazing harmony, in part achieved by a new pure white glossy lacquered material used in the entire interior of the ship, a unique resin called Corian. On the upper deck bar the Corian has been coupled with a white leather, creating a perfect match.
Grey parquet has been used for all the flooring, on the lower, main and the upper decks, and again a grey glossy lacquered Corian is used for the galley on the main deck. All paneling on board is strictly plane, as not to conflict with the overall design.
The open plan dining room has seating for 8 guests and is separated from the main lounge by the central staircase leading down to the guest accommodation.
Mylo offers luxurious accommodation for 10 guests, with the guest accommodation on the lower deck, and a large and beautiful owner's suite on the main deck, which offers a fantastic view over the bow.
All the loose furniture have been custom made by the French brand “Modenature” and is finished in pure white materials. The Lighting on board Mylo, courtesy of Led lighting, is perfectly integrated with the concept of Mylo, putting the final touch to the stunning interior.
