Together the team fulfilled the owner’s brief for a custom yacht with four requirements: speed, silent running, autonomy and fun for the family. To achieve this, Benetti worked with the two designers to build a model with elegant exterior lines and modern interiors.  Benetti FB283 yacht keel layingPhoto: BenettiA tapering stern and a long bow in the Benetti FB283 yacht is designed to improve cruising performance.
