P.B. Behage designs Benetti Sail Division 131 World Traveller
By Maarten Janssen
Benetti Sail Division have once again teamed up with P.B. Behage for their BSD131 World Traveller model. P.B. Behage worked with Benetti Sail Division before on the 34 metre Grand Cru III.
The 131 is in fact a larger version of Grand Cru III. The layout of the 40 metre 131 is conventional, and features an owner's cabin forward on the main deck, and four large guest cabins on the lower deck, two double and two twin cabins. The upper deck features the bridge, as well as a skylounge. With the tenders stored on the foredeck, the aft decks are all kept clear for the enjoyment of her guests.
The yacht is powered by twin Caterpillar 3412 E's, and at ten knots will have a range of 4700nm.
