In Pictures: 108m Benetti IJE in Sardinia

Written by Charl van Rooy

The longest yacht ever built by Benetti was recently completed and is now exploring the Mediterranean on her maiden season. As one of three 100-metre plus yachts built simultaneously by the shipyard in Livorno, the Benetti IJE stands out with a balanced and timeless exterior as designed by British studio, RWD.  IJE yacht by Benetti at anchorPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesIJE yacht by Benetti at anchorPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times

The outdoor spaces on board cover over 1,000 square metres and houses luxuries such a 1.5-metre fire pit on the bridge deck, a private al fresco dining area on the owner’s deck and an oversized family dining table on the main deck.IJE yacht by Benetti at anchorPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times

Two custom 14-metre tenders are stowed on the foredeck of IJE which are accompanied by no less than eight jet skis for the ultimate family fun day on the water. IJE’s full-beam beach club with massive fold-down water terraces on either side lead out onto a huge swim platform with two grand staircases leading up to the main deck aft.IJE yacht by Benetti at anchorPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesIJE yacht by Benetti at anchorPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times

The interior, which remains top secret, is designed by Benetti’s own interior design department accommodates up to 22 guests with quarters for a compliment of 29 crew members.

IJE can cover up to 6,500 nm with her 345,000-litre fuel tank and reaches a maximum speed of 18.5 knots using her two powerful twin MTU engines, each with 2,880 kW. The yacht also has an electric Schottel stern SPJ pump jet to enable it to travel distances powered entirely by electric propulsion.IJE yacht by Benetti at anchorPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesIJE yacht by Benetti at anchorPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times
