Built for an experienced first-time Benetti owner, the sixth Benetti Crystal 140 superyacht was christened Equus during her recent launch. Benetti reports that hull number seven of the series is currently under construction and is expected to launch in December 2016.
The yacht has been designed for the owner’s private use, and features accordingly spacious exterior deck spaces. The most important is the spacious sun-deck that includes a large zone towards the stern with settees and lounge chairs, while the Jacuzzi has been moved forward. The same deck hosts a TV screen for guest entertainment.
Contemporary interiors recreating her original design by François Zuretti were created by the Benetti in house design team in collaboration with the owner’s designer, Polly Sturgess’ POD Interior Style studio, who personally created the decorative detailing. It recalls a colonial atmosphere with an African mood, in reference to the family's passion for the African continent and polo, one of the world's most glamorous sports, also known as “the sport of the Kings”.
Fabio Ermetto, Benetti CCO: “Her launch once again confirms the success of the semi-custom Crystal 140' model, surely the most spacious yacht in her category. This strong point, coupled with timeless design and a quality and level of comfort unique for her category, are the perfect mix for this design."
