The 48-metre, fully custom Benetti motor yacht, Hawa, was launched at the shipbuilders Livorno shipyard last week. The yacht, a collaboration between Benetti and the English design studio RWD, created the vessel with a passionate, repeat Benetti customer, who has helped to design the finish of the yacht which is striking for its ‘desert sand’ hull hue. The motor yacht, which accommodates up to ten people, features bespoke interior finishings in eucalyptus and dark walnut wood, as well as marble throughout. She has five generous staterooms, including a main deck masters suite, which has replaced the traditional positioning of a galley. On this deck, the owner can enjoy a pantry, VIP suite and the master stateroom, which includes a private study, twin wardrobes and a lounge area. Above the main deck, the upper deck hosts a gym and wheelhouse with full-height windows.On the lower deck there are three additional staterooms, and the galley is also located on this deck. There is a sun deck and a beach deck, the latter of which has fold-out side openings which extend its surface and allow for additional sunbathing areas. The interior of the beach club includes a lounge, shower and sauna
To the stern of the sun deck is an al fresco dining table for up-to 12 guests, and in the interior can be found a cinema space with bar and sofas.
The nine crew can access each deck from separate staircases to the guests, and they are accommodated in five cabins below the lower deck. Her hull was designed by P.L.A.N.A. Design studio in collaboration with the Azimut Benetti Research and Development. The yacht has a 10 knot cruising speed with a range of 4,000 nautical miles, while her top speed is 15.5 knots.
This latest launch comes only a week after the shipbuilders launched their 65-metre Zazou on the 22nd of April, and less than a month since the 29-metre Delfino 95 was launched
